In December, I would have been married for 6 years. I’m expecting my first children, boy/ girl twins in early October. I married young and spent the next three years completing my degree of primary education. After that I worked full time for a year as a class teacher before my husband and I decided to start trying for kids. I’ve always loved children and have felt like my purpose in life was to be a mum, my nephews and nieces satisfied my hunger during those years but I was mentally ready to have my own. We actively tried for a year before we fell pregnant. Although I know that’s not long, in my mind it felt like I had been trying since tying the knot as each month I was always hopeful. Each month, I got my monthlies was a huge let down and really made me start questioning if I was able to concieve, avenues we’d need to take, adoption and so on. I guess growing up, you think things will happen straight away but god has other plans. We did all the testing and luckily their were no problems for either of us. I decided after being a class teacher for two years to resign and find something less demanding so that I could relax and focus on me. That 6 weeks summer break after resigning was when I got the news. Me and my husband were overjoyed! We are so grateful to god and truly believe that we only fell pregnant with gods blessing, lots of prayers paid off. Boy/ girl twins, something we’ve only dreamed of now a reality. Priceless!!
