The fabulous Frankie, currently 16 weeks pregnant, with her daughter Londyn (5). Frankie had an early ultrasound at 7 weeks during her first pregnancy and everything looked good. Her pregnancy progressed well and she went in for her 20 week scan to determine the sex of her baby. It was there she learned that she had been carrying identical twins and one had died due to Twin-to-Twin Transfusion syndrome at some point between 8-12 weeks. Frankie was in shock for some time but says her focus on getting Londyn to term provided distraction. She was able to carry to 36 weeks when she went into labor naturally and gave birth to Londyn and her sister. Frankie's current pregnancy is going well other some nausea that subsided a couple weeks ago. She recently lost her brother which has been very difficult to her but she is happy that she was able to tell her she was pregnant before he passed. Frankie and her family are very close and their support along with being able to focus on this pregnancy are helping her to get through.
Frankie says there has been a lot of pressure lately to have the right kind of "mom body" and she wishes that people would step back and realize that anyone who is a mother, anyone who has had a baby, any woman has the right kind of body; that acceptance and support is so important to the betterment of us all.
