Once I was able to get in to on Dr (who was a civilian German Dr hired by government, due to shortage of on/gyn military drs), he tried telling me that I was only 3 mos pregnant if that. Ha ha, I had been seeing a on Dr practally since 4 weeks.
So at that time the ultrasound was a new device and they had me tested. Well we didn't have a house phone, too expensive, so nurse called ex at work.
Nurses: Sgt. Nash what you going to do with twins.
Ex: I don't know, how far along is wife.
Nurse: No, what are you going to do with twins.
Ex: I don't know what I'm going to do with the twins, how far along is my wife.
This exchange went on for several exchanges. Nurse didn't know we already had twins. Ex wasn't understanding what nurse was implying.
Finally nurse said: "Sgt Nash you're not getting it, you don't have twins your wife is having twins." And Ex said very loudly "No, not again" loud enough the whole barracks heard him.
So he has a friend bring him home for lunch. Which he never did as we didn't have a car over there.
He walks in door, I ask him what he's doing home, what's wrong. He said to hold on as he had to go to bathroom but on the way there he said you might want to sit down. I follow him to bathroom and saying I don't want to sit down what's wrong.
He comes out of bathroom and said "you're having twins."
Me: "That's not funny!"
Ex: "Really, you're having twins again"
Meanwhile friend is busting a gut laughing.
Me: dropped to chair "that's a horrible joke. What's really wrong"
Ex then explains conversation with nurse. So I ask him how far along did they say I was, ex replies " forgot to find out. "
Needless to say I cried off and on for several days. When I did go into labor had been depressed as I thought I would have been
Like mother, 1 set of twins 3 single births. I wanted a single baby to love on. Not love on one for 30 min put down get other baby up love on for 30 minutes. Get 1 hour sleep start all over again.
Hospital at Bad Kreuznach wasn't set up to deliver babies, shipped by ambulance to Frankfurt.
Got to talking to EMT in back of ambulance, when we told him I was having twins, he turned white as a sheet. When ex asked what was wrong he replied " they only gave me one emergency delivery kit." Ex laughed and said don't worry I used to be a Fireman and had delivered babies with no kits.
Well good thing I didn't deliver in ambulance, as once I arrived at Frankfurt, nurse checked me to see how far dialated I was and there was an arm hanging out. Emergency C-Section for me.
Died on table as I wasn't getting oxygen and Dr started cutting before anesthesia kicked in. Kept trying to shake head to get mask off but anestheologist just pressed harder on mask.
When Dr came in to tell me I had two healthy boys I told him I know, as I can remember floating above body and watching. They delivered baby's real fast and then zapped me. Remember being sucked back in to body.
