May 18, 1976 I'm surprised I can even remember the date anymore! This pain has been buried for so long, that at times I feel as though it were only a bad dream. 2 babies, one cry and a needle being put into my arm. When I woke up, I could hear whispers behind the curtain in the next bed. I heard a woman say, they have her knocked out, she had twin boy's but they didn't make it. Screams, a woman screaming, Oh God it's me my babies are dead!! Nurses run in and again a needle in my arm to silence the screams, a nurse's voice saying "please Mrs. Ward your scaring our new mothers, You have to be quiet, now relax everything will look better tomorrow". The room is spinning and I fall into darkness.
 


We didn't know we were having Twins until a few days before they were actually born! There were no ultra sounds then, and x-rays were only given if they felt something was wrong. But as far as we knew it had been a normal healthy pregancy so far. My ex-husband didn't want any more children, he felt two daughters were enough and was real mad when I came home with the news, I was once again going to have a baby. We seemed to fight alot the next few months. And living so far away from my Mom then, our phone bills didn't help matters any. I would hug my belly and tell my baby everything would be okay once he or she were here. May 13th at my regular appointment, Dr. Gail seemed concerned, he kept listening to the heartbeat, then asked his nurse to call the hospital and set me up for an ex-ray. When I asked him if everything was okay he patted my leg and said oh just fine but I think you have twins here, I'm sure I am hearing two heartbeats! I thought I was going to fall through the floor. Twins! Boy my ex was going to love this news!!! And of course the ex-rays showed two little babies one behind the other. Driving home I was in a fog, I knew I was going to have to deal with my Ex Husband and I didn't want anymore fighting, so I decided not to tell him now. After all my due date was still over 6 weeks away!
