Twins and a deployed husband

twins with deployed husband

Author: Sara Otero

My husband had only been away for 6 weeks when I found out I was pregnant. He was in the middle of his basic training in the Military and a very emotional video call was his way of finding out. The pregnancy was the easy bit, even though the majority of the time I was dealing with the scans and hospital visits without him. Fortunately, he was able to call regularly during his time away. There was a period of a few months where he was able to come home for weekends and he also managed to come to the week 20 scan.

Post-partum hair loss after twins or triplets

twins and hair loss

Post-partum hair loss after twins or triplets

When it comes to pregnancy, we are often faced with different symptoms and side effects. Fortunately, many of these disappear once we have delivered our babies. However, there are a select few that decide to show themselves after we have given birth. Such as post-partum hair loss.

After birth and up to around the 6 month mark post-partum you may start to notice that you are developing a lot of hair loss. Not just the usual few strands being left behind here and there, but losing a LOT of hair. If you have noticed this happening, don’t stress – it is completely normal. It is a hormonal change that many of us go through after birth.

Let’s take a look into post-partum hair loss after twins or triplets in a bit more detail.

Twins born different days. This is part three of my birth story.  You can read part one and part two below.

Pre-eclampsia and twins.  Part one of my twin birth story.

Being induced with twins.  Part two of my twin birth story

Twins born different days was not something I ever thought would ever actually happen to me. But to be fair, I also wasn’t expecting to have twins … but here we are.

Giving birth to twins – Twin A

But suddenly it was go time, I was told to let the epidural wear off so I could feel the urge to push. Everything happened very quickly after that. Twin A was very easy to push out … sorry I mean cough out!

In fact it happened so quickly that the obstetrician almost missed it.

This is part two of my birth story – being induced with twins.  You can read part one below.

Pre-eclampsia and twins.  Part one of my twin birth story.

Being induced with twins

It was finally time to be done with the hell that was carrying two babies at the same time – I could of cried out of happiness … because there really was a time where I thought I’d be pregnant forever, or the babies wouldn’t last the entire pregnancy.

So off to the birthing suite we go to be induced with twins. Because I was already 3 centimeters all they needed to do was break my waters. So that labour could start.

That sounds pretty simple right … after all when waters break spontaneously its pretty simple with no pain. (I know because it happened with my oldest Bradley, I just thought I was peeing)

Ha ha HA (that’s me laughing at myself for thinking it would be an easy process)

My midwife (who was amazing and quite honestly I would have never got through the next few hours without her) pulls out a HUGE crochet hook … yep you read that right, a GIGANTIC CROCHET HOOK … which she shoved up my cervix and hooked Twin A’s amniotic sac.
