Hi ladies!<br><br>
I haven't posted here in months.<br>
I had my boys on February 23rd. It was a pretty traumatic emergency c section and I lost my oldest son.<br>
My youngest son was in NICU for weeks but we've all been home for almost two months now. The bub will be 3 months on Sunday and hes growing strong.<br>
I havent written their birth story yet and I dont know if I ever will.<br>
I wasnt awake for it and only woke up days after they were born. I didnt get to meet my baby for a week.<br>
Its been a long crazy journey but I'm blessed.<br><a href="http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/munzie22/babysmile.jpg" target="_blank">http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g3.../babysmile.jpg</a><br><a href="http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/munzie22/DSCN3268.jpg" target="_blank">http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g3...2/DSCN3268.jpg</a><br><a href="http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/munzie22/DSCN0190Copy.jpg" target="_blank">http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g3...CN0190Copy.jpg</a>

What a beautiful baby! Your family is just gorgeous! I am so, so sorry for the loss of your son. It must be incredibly hard to be a new mom and grieving at the same time. I hope you find comfort here at MDC.

Thank you ladies!<br><br>
We have our ups and downs but I've made peace with it. I lost my own twin brother at birth (he was also the older twin). So I'm hoping that experience will help me with Ibraheem growing up without his Jibreel to romp with.<br><br><a href="http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/munzie22/DSCN3390.jpg" target="_blank">http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g3...2/DSCN3390.jpg</a><br><br>

I'm glad you've been able to make peace with it. My grandmother had identical twin boys and one was born stillborn as well. They had TTTS. She said the hardest part was that people expected her to just be grateful she had one healthy baby, since that's all most people have anyway, and she found it difficult to properly mourn the other one.<br><br>
Your boy is beautiful, and so happy looking. =)

I know how your grandmother felt. Thats why I didn't want to talk to anyone for awhile. I wanted to grieve my way. Now talking helps.
