Eliza Curby was dating Ben for only 3 months before she found out she was pregnant. They knew from the moment they met that they were in love and wanted to start a family some day. It was going to be the beginning for them.
Charlie their daughter was born happy and healthy. As she grew older Eliza could not help but feel that something was wrong. She was right.
Eliza told her story to News.com
“We fell pregnant with our first, Charlie, three months after we started dating! Ben had always been super keen to become a father so we were over the moon at the thought of creating our own little family. Needless to say the decision was taken out of his hands – I win!”
It was everything she ever imagined having a gorgeous daughter, and Ben was also madly in love and could not keep his eyes off her. Eliza had felt like her body was not right. She almost felt as if she was almost pregnant again.
She was always tired and was unable to do much around the house. People assumed that she was just exhausted from the year she just had and a new arrival in the home. It can take a lot out of a woman.
She told Ben that she thought she might be pregnant again and here was his reaction:
“I was exhausted trying to figure out the ins and outs of being a mum, but about a month after having Charlie though I felt really, super exhausted. Everyone told me it was sleep deprivation catching up with me but I was not convinced – I remember looking at Ben and saying, ‘I think I’m pregnant.’ He just laughed.”
With the household already busy from a new baby the daunting sound of having another was almost too much.
Eliza was so sure that she was pregnant again that she done four pregnancy tests at home. She then confirmed that she was in fact pregnant.
She then made her way to the doctors to confirm that she was in fact pregnant again. The ultrasound shocked her even more.
“The technician seemed awkward and uncomfortable, before he finally said, ‘Look, it’s early days…. but…. I think there’s two.’ And it turns out there was! I was so scared but secretly super excited – I think everyone has a secret desire for identical twins.”
It really took them a while for the news to sink in.
She carried the twins almost full term and they never had any complications throughout the pregnancy.
Jack and George were born with perfect health.
They were all so excited to meet the new family members.
Having three children in the house under the age of one is a very hard task. Ben and Eliza swear that they wouldn’t change it for the world.
She says its like a roller coaster of changing diapers and breastfeeding and she can barely get a moment to eat.
Would you be able to handle this if it happened to you? What would your reaction be if it did?
