Although 27-year-old Shanea Hickman and her 25-year-old sister, Janea, pretty much did everything together growing up, the two had no idea that they would even end up entering motherhood within a minute of each other. It all started when Shanea, who lives in West Palm Beach, FL, found out that her younger sister was pregnant back in Pittsburgh. "I already suspected she was pregnant before she told me. When she did finally tell me, I screamed, 'I knew it!'" "I actually was the first one to know that we were pregnant at the same time," Shanea told POPSUGAR. "Unlike myself, my sister's excitement took over and she told everyone as soon as she could. I wanted to keep things between my partner and I until after the first trimester. I took my pregnancy test first thing in the morning and around dinner time, I get a call and text from Janea with the news that she took a pregnancy test and it was positive. I just remember thinking to myself 'No Way!' As excited as I was for my sister and the big news, I was determined to wait to spill my little secret until after my first doctor appointment." After going to the doctor, Shanea confirmed that her due date was May 13. As for Janea? She was expected to deliver on May 9. "I was so excited," said Janea. "I already suspected she was pregnant before she told me. When she did finally tell me, I screamed, 'I knew it!' I also jokingly asked, 'Why do you always have to steal my shine?' These were the first births in our family for a long time and I was looking forward to being spoiled by our family. I couldn't be happier we both got to experience motherhood together."

The happiness that surrounded them, stalked them everywhere, is now contained in a photo frame. The smiles are rare, the screeches are regular. Complaints have replaced compassion.

The list of broken promises were long, the cleft separating expectations from realisations were appalling. There was a gap in communication somewhere that has left her disillusioned for life. ...
