The beautiful Amanda Long with her identical twin boys Creighton and Wesley (21 months). Amanda learned early on that she was expecting identical twins and had to deal with all of the pregnancy challenges that brings. She required lots of extra monitoring and started going into preterm labor throughout her second trimester. She also gained over 100 lbs mostly due to edema which led to preeclampsia and toxemia. Her labor was able to be stopped at the hospital each time. When she was 32 weeks along she went into hard labor that couldn't be stopped and had to deliver her boys via cesarean. They spent time in the special nursery to feed and grow but were able to come home in one months time. It took Amanda's milk 19 days to come in which was tremendously difficult for her as she'd always planned to breastfeed. After delivery, Amanda's ovaries enlarged to 15cms each, a side effect of PCOS. Amanda doesn't plan on having any more children after her traumatic pregnancy and delivery but says that being a mother has changed her entire life for the better.
