Mother Expecting Triplets Got Quadruplets

Wow a mother who was expecting only identical triplets got the surprise of her life when the doctor shouted "more feet" after the 3rd baby came out. They were surprised because all ultrasounds showed 3 baby girls. They were all identical. I think the 4th was hidden by the other 3. They were born 13 weeks premature or they were only 7 mos. but they are doing well in the neonatal intensive care and hopefully will be out soon.

They were born just one day before the mother's birthday, would have been nice is they were born on the same birthday so it will be only 1 big celebration every year.

They have a 10 year old daughter so now that gives them 5 girls. I hope they won't try for a boy.

The doctors said that this was a rare case especially since she got pregnant without any fertility drugs. As quoted by the attending physician: “The odds of spontaneous quadruplets is one in every 729,000 live births,” Bofill said. “The chances of having identical quadruplets [are] almost incalculable.”

This was last Feb 2014 so I hope the girls are out and healthy. The family made a facebook account to keep family members and other updated here you can check them out : https://www.facebook.com/pages/Fugate-Quadruplets/298660380298157?sk=timeline

The recent pictures of the 4 pretty girls. Wow I wouldn't know how to care for them at the same time. She is lucky he other daughter is already 10 and can help. The mother's last post was saying that she was sorry she hasn't posted much, been too busy. I could imagine. This was taken last June 2014.

This is a nice story to share with everyone and it was nice reading these premature babies survived after reading how one did not

Oh, I feel tired just thinking about it. I had four years between each of my children. One at a time was enough for me.
