Sara Thistlewaite, a math teacher from Ohio decided with her husband that it was time to start a family of their own. They discovered early on that they’d be having identical twins and like any new parents, they had many questions.
The doctors informed them that their babies share the same amniotic sac and placenta known as monoamniotic twins. A birth like this occurs about once every 10,000 pregnancies. They continued to tell the couple they would be spending a lot of time in the hospital.
Sarah herself, spent over two months in the hospital due to her rare pregnancy, every single person concerned was interested in her twins, she soon began to feel like she was under a microscope. She knew she would need to have C-section but of course, everyone assured her that it was a routine procedure and she had nothing to worry about. It only gets better…
After 57 days of bed rest and monitoring, it was time for Sarah to meet her twins. As she waited patiently for her babies to start crying the doctors just stared in awe.
The Doctors couldn’t separate the babies to pull them out one by one so they took them out together, entwined into one. Sarah had a white screen blocking her view and began to panic. But the doctor reassured her that everything was fine and her babies were healthy!
What they showed her afterward, left the entire room in tears.
The twins came out holding hands! You can clearly see the bond between these two girls will be unbreakable. And it is! The Couple says their girls are like “Two peas in pod”
The girls really love doing everything together, even wearing matching clothes, the couple really has a hard time separating them. Sara said:
“Sometimes if my husband goes to the store, he’ll take one twin and I’ll keep the other. When that happens, they both get really upset and ask for each other. They’re definitely really close. They’re like two peas in a pod.”
I’m sure twins can be difficult at times but you can tell these parents love their girls to death. This story was truly uplifting!
