Welcoming little ones into the world is one of life's most precious moments. It's a time you can never revisit and the powerful love surrounding those memories are the greatest treasures. You want to do everything you can to freeze time, grasping onto every sight, sound, and expression of your sweet bundle of joy.
All of the pain and discomfort experienced in pregnancy instantly is forgotten when you first lay eyes on your sweet little miracle. When multiples are born, the blessing increases with each little addition! The phrase, " The more the merrier!" is a phrase fitting for new parents of multiples.
Bill and Sarah Thistlethwaite know this experience so very well. After a long pregnancy, Sarah patiently awaited the birth of her little blessings. She and Bill were expecting twin girls and could not be more excited to hold them for the very first time.
When the doctors realized that the babies were born mono amniotic, they knew that this pregnancy would be a more difficult one. Mono amniotic births are when twin babies share the same amniotic sac and placenta. This is an extremely uncommon scenario, creating a high-risk pregnancy because the babies could become easily entangled in the umbilical cords.
This entanglement can cut off blood supply to one twin and often results in the death of one child. Bill and Sarah remained hopeful, praying for a complete miracle that their little girls would both survive. Near the end of her 33-week pregnancy, Sarah was forced to spend the last 57 days on bed rest.
Needless to say, it was a rather difficult pregnancy for her. As soon as she went into labor, the excitement only increased! Not long after she was admitted, she had a c-section to deliver her babies.
When the doctor held up the newborn baby girls, Bill and Sarah instantly became overcome with emotion. Every moment of bed rest, pain, and difficulty was instantly forgotten when she lay eyes on their girls, Jenna and Jillian. What her girls did, though, was the most astonishing part of all!
