I decided that I needed to shop around for a doctor who can deliver my twins vaginally because not many of the ‘younger’ doctors do it. I’m guessing it’s easier for them – they get to schedule it, they’re in and out in an hour or two tops, and they don’t need to wait around while you’re in labour.
When we became pregnant with our twins last year, we suddenly found ourselves part of a secret club. The hidden trapdoor to the secret society of parenthood opened and welcomed us within.
I never in a million years thought that motherhood would change me.
I remember what “me” time was before I had Alex. It was almost every moment of every day. It seems so distant now, those idle pastures of yore when I made decisions on a whim.

My son turned two months old yesterday, yet nothing was posted online about it. Not a single photo, video or comment was seen or heard. Friends and family ask why there aren’t more pictures of my little one on Facebook, and I’ve always given the same answer: “I’m respecting his privacy.”
Every girl has thought of her dream wedding probably since the age of eight – what her dress would look like, where the wedding reception will be held, the colour theme, etc. Strangely enough, I never imagined my perfect wedding; instead I have always envisioned my dream birth.
