Many couples dream of having children. Some manage to reach this easily while others have to spend years on being examined at doctors’ and referring to the help of high technologies. Luckily, such attempts are very often awarded, but sometimes in very unexpected ways.
Here is a good example of this – the story of Rachelle and Jayson Wilkinson from Texas, USA. No matter how surprised you are, believe, this couple was surprised even more! They were married for several years and they had two children, but they really wanted to have the third one. Unfortunately, they didn’t manage to do this.
But the couple didn’t give up and even started a course of fertility treatment. Rachelle was prescribed hormones, and soon the couple saw the hope: the woman turned to be pregnant again! When Rachelle went to the first ultrasound, the doctor noticed two heartbeats on the screen. The couple would have twins! The family was really excited!
But this is not the end of the story. When the doctor checked Rachelle during the next ultrasound, she couldn’t believe her eyes: there were not two and not even three heartbeats. The doctor counted 5 babies!
There is no need to say how shocked the couple was! The multiple pregnancy is very rare, but sometimes it can happen because of the hormonal treatment against infertility. The couple had to make a really complex decision. The doctors’ forecasts were not too optimistic: the pregnancy would be hard, and it was unknown whether all five babies could survive. But despite all fears, the couple decided to save all five of them.
Rachelle was growing really quickly. Here is how she looked like on the 33rd week!
July 22, 2007, she gave birth to five babies: three girls and two boys! All of them were healthy and strong!
All friends and relatives were helping the family. In the end of delivery, there were 29 people in the waiting room!
