She said she had sleepless nights. How would they fit in the womb and would they survive. What if they come out conjoined in the head or hands or stomach? I asked myself all these questions until the doctor assured that me that my womb was starting to expand inside. God made a miracle and my children stayed in the womb without any complications, she also said.
