A mom has opened up about the shocking moment she discovered she was having quadruplets…
Newborn babies are hard work, that’s for sure.
But what about if you’ve given birth to quadruplets?
Well, it doesn’t bear thinking about.
The list goes on.
In July, thirty-year-old Natalie Maree from Western Australia gave birth to quadruplets Maioha, Frankee, Marley, and Maddison.
And this week, Natalie recalled the jaw-dropping moment she found out she was carrying not 1 but 4 babies.
Her condition meant she had to have hormones injected into her to stimulate regular ovulation.
Amazingly, she and her husband Kahn managed to get pregnant with their now 2-year-old daughter Kiki.
Natalie thought she’d lucked out when she found out she was pregnant again.
But nothing could prepare her for what was about to happen.
After having so many fertility issues, this must have come as a huge shock.
Mother nature has a very weird way of working, right?
Following months of weekly scans to check that they were all developing well.
She is incredibly honest and candid about life as a mom of 5.
Debunking myths surrounding the post-baby bounce back.
“The reality is I’d be lying to myself and all of you if I said I loved what my belly looks like now,” she wrote on one of her posts.
And many of her followers have thanked her for “keeping it real” and being so “brave.”
But this week, Natalie has revealed exactly what it felt like the moment she found out she was carrying 4 babies.
“At our seven-week dating scan, I lay down and the sonographer ran the wand over my belly,” Natalie told That’s Life.
She actually thought she was having twins.
“Squinting at the fuzzy screen, I spotted 2 sacs. ‘Twins!” I squealed, pointing,'” she said.
And told her that there were actually 4 babies, not 2.
Because Natalie mistakenly thought he meant triplets.
“‘Triplets!’ I cried.”
She said her husband, Kahn, “almost passed out,” at the news.
Think we’d all have that reaction, Kahn!
Well, she said her “jaw dropped” when she found out she was expecting quadruplets.
Well, it looks like they’re more than happy now their 4 babies are here. Congratulations to the family of 7!
