~ Meet Kim
My name is Kim, and I'm 27 years old. I have been married to my husband, Travis, who is 29, for 11 years. Yes, you are doing the math correctly. I was 16 and he was 18 when we got married. We met back in elementary school when he was best friends with my older brother. We started dating in high school and got married a year later.
Together we have five children. Brett, who is 10 and is in 5th grade; Krysta, who is 8 and in 3rd grade; Asher, who is 4.5 and loving his first year of preschool; Jordan, who is 2.5 and currently going through the dreaded terrible twos; and last, but not least, Rayne, who is 12 months and just entering toddler-hood. Life is busy and crazy, but it's also good and happy and full of love.
We had always talked about having six kids, so when I got my period back after my youngest baby, we decided to go for it. It only took three months for me to get pregnant. I got a positive test on July 3, 2011 and went for my first ultrasound on July 26. I was shocked to see two gestational sacs on the screen. We couldn't see much on the abdominal ultrasound, but when she switched to the vaginal one, it was very clear that we had two babies, each with a heartbeat.
Multiples do run in my family. My mother's mother had triplets. Naturally, of course. I guess it skipped over my mom and came to me. Overall, I'm feeling mostly good. I have only had two symptoms that are bad enough for me to complain about. Fatigue is one. I've been feeling mostly like a zombie for the past 10 weeks or so. The housework is falling behind, and all I want to do is sleep. The other one is headaches. I've been getting them nearly every day. I've had just about every other symptom except for nausea and vomiting, but thankfully, it really hasn't been too bad.
So, we are excitedly (and nervously!) expecting two bundles of joy to bring home late February/early March. I don't have a clue what to expect with twins but we're just taking things as they come.
