Finding Out About the Twins
During the ultrasound, Ashley got worried when the technician stepped out of the room, leaving her alone in there. She recalled being worried that something was wrong with the pregnancy and that she waited for what felt like an hour before the technician came back to the room. The technician then asked a non-comforting question about whether the expecting mom has told anyone she was having twins. Ashley was not surprised by this news because twins run in both her and her husband’s families, but what came next was the real shocker.
What Happened Next
After the initial news that she was having twins, Ashley received the actual news that made the ultrasound technician go out of the room – she was expecting not one but two sets of identical twins! The technician saw two placenta sacs, which is so rare that she had to make sure she saw things properly before telling the expecting mom. The technician even said she stepped out of the room to Google it and be sure that she saw it correctly. The odds of this happening is about 1 in 10 million.
The Mom’s Reaction
Like everyone who’s expecting twins, triplets, or like in this case – quadruplets, the mom was initially stressed out about raising four babies at the same time. Although she has parenting experience, having so many little ones is stressful, time-consuming, and expensive. However, she got so much support from her clients (she’s a hairdresser) and other members of the community that she’s now feeling much better about being a mom to seven children.
