6 Weeks After Giving Birth, Mom Finds Out She's Pregnant With Twins

For some, it takes years to settle down and grow a family. Others, however, seem to go at a lightning pace. One couple was shocked; they were expecting almost as soon as they even began getting serious, and a little over a year later they were a family of five. Mom, dad, and all the kids are over the moon, though.

Eliza Curby met her partner, Ben, and within three months she had news for him. She was pregnant. The parents-to-be were both excited and a little nervous about starting a family, and it all seemed to happen so quickly. Still, they had no idea what they were in for.

"We fell pregnant with our first, Charlie, three months after we started dating!" said Curby. "Ben had always been super keen to become a father so we were over the moon at the thought of creating our own little family. Needless to say the decision was taken out of his hands - I win!"

A few months after they'd met, their first child, Charlie, came along. The new parents were just in love with their little one, but six weeks later, mom started experiencing some problems.

Curby says she knew that new mothers could be tired, but this was ridiculous. She was so exhausted that she wondered if she could be pregnant again.

Everyone said that she had a baby only six weeks ago, so it was unlikely the problem was a second pregnancy. After all, she had a busy year-- it wasn't a surprise the new mom was exhausted. But symptoms persisted, and Curby went back to the doctor for a check-up.

Lesson learned: never doubt a woman who thinks she's pregnant. As it turned out, Curby was expecting another little bundle of joy. And not one, but two.

She went to the doctor, and an ultrasound revealed an even bigger surprise: the couple was having twins.

"The technician seemed awkward and uncomfortable, before he finally said, 'Look, it's early days.... but.... I think there's two'," Curby recalls. "And it turns out there was! I was so scared but secretly super excited - I think everyone has a secret desire for identical twins."

Both mom and dad say they have fraternal twins in the family, but identical twins were a bit of a shock. The baby boys were born at 36 weeks and were perfectly healthy. They were named Jack Antony Richard and Wolfe George Harry. Not only were the parents delighted, but Charlie was thrilled to have a couple of little brothers so close to her own age.

Since Charlie is still so young, Curby says it's more like having triplets. All three children are still breastfeeding, in diapers and needing mama's attention. She started a blog called 'twingenuity' to share her experiences.

Eliza and Ben went from being two single people looking for love, to a family of five within two years. That is a pretty quick way to grow a family! And now with Curby’s blog, she’s able to share with the world what a wacky, wonderful family life she has.
