Ross and I had been together for three years and married for one when our first child Floyd was born. I’d had
a normal pregnancy, but my waters broke at 37 weeks and after 34 hours in the hospital I was prepped for an emergency C-section before they were finally able to help him out with forceps, which left me mentally scarred. But the biggest shock came when, aged five months, our gorgeous little baby was diagnosed with achondroplasia (dwarfism), a rare genetic condition.
The diagnosis took us completely by surprise. But our feelings of love overcame the initial shock and, 10 months later, we decided to try for a brother or sister for our Floydy.
What followed was another surprise and again not in our family history: the 12-week scan showed I was pregnant with twins. Our family of three would soon become a family of five, Floydy would have two siblings and Ross and I would be parents to a toddler and twins, all aged under two.
