Welcome to all my family, friends and everyone else who has found themselves on my blog. For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Emma, a 30 year old devoted wife to my amazing husband Martin and mother to my gorgeous 2 year old boy Luke. Recently my dream of becoming a family of 4 was completely blow out the water when I discovered I was soon to be mother of not 2 but 5, just like that!
My journey is still young and so far has definitely not been an easy one. Through a lot of soul searching and discovery I have realised that it is so rare to be given the opportunity to experience something like this, that I have decided to follow its path with all that it brings. I know that it is not going to be easy and at times I will need to make some incredibly hard decisions, but with the love and strength of Martin, my family and my friends I will be able to overcome any fear and sadness.
This diary actually started as a personal hand written journal when I decided I wanted to keep a week by week account of my journey through pregnancy, birth and beyond to remember the experience and maybe one day share my feelings, thoughts and experiences with all. It was only as I searched the Internet for information on the subject of pregnancies for higher order multiples that I found so little information about the day to day experiences and what I could expect. I decided at the beginning of December to turn my journal into a blog and hopefully help others with my story.
Thank you for this special gift!
