The couple had heard the popular myth that it’s impossible for breastfeeding women to become pregnant, so they decided to stop using contraception in the weeks after Charlie’s birth.

Then, one morning, Eliza awoke with a really bad pain in her head. Somehow, she knew exactly what was going on: she was pregnant again.

Interestingly enough, she tested herself and the result came back negative, but Eliza knew that something strange was going on, so she tested herself three more times and, eventually, the final test showed that she was indeed pregnant.

Eliza then went to speak to her doctor, who validated the pregnancy. Not only that, but an ultrasound scan revealed that this time, the couple would be expecting twins!
