Doctors Think 42-Year-Old Mom Is Pregnant With Triplets Until They Pull Out 4th Baby’s Feet
Just before her 42nd birthday, at 28 weeks pregnant, Kimberly Fugate went into labor. As if that weren’t sʜᴏᴄᴋɪɴɢ enough, Kimberly didn’t even realize she was pregnant until she was 13 weeks along. Tʜᴇ ɴᴇᴡs ᴛʜᴀᴛ sʜᴇ ᴡᴏᴜʟᴅ ʙᴇ ʜᴀᴠɪɴɢ ᴛʀɪᴘʟᴇᴛs ᴡᴀs ᴛʜᴇ ᴄʜᴇʀʀʏ ᴏɴ ᴛᴏᴘ.
With little time to get ready for her three babies, Kimberly and husband Craig were hardly prepared for what happened in the delivery room.
“It’s all been rather ᴏᴠᴇʀᴡʜᴇʟᴍɪɴɢ when you think about how many changes will have to be made, But I am just trying to take everything one day at a time. I know it will all work out.”” Kimberly said
See how Kimberly’s life was completely changed in a single moment!
In 2013, Kimberly Fugate became pregnant in her early 40s. The mom, who was already a mother to a 10-year-old, Katelyn, was suddenly expecting triplets — rare triplets at that.
She and her husband, Craig, conceived the babies without IVF. That’s almost unheard of!
Just before her 42nd birthday, after delivering three identical girls, doctors told her there was a little more in store.
“They had gotten the three out, and they said, ‘More feet,'” Kimberly told CNN. “I said, ‘No!’ It was an instant sʜᴏᴄᴋ.”
Kimberly and Craig had produced four identical quadruplet girls. Their names and birth order: Kenleigh Rosa, Kristen Sue, Kayleigh Pearl, and Kelsey Roxanne. The odds of conceiving spontaneous quadruplets are 1 to 729,000. However, the odds that they would be identical are almost incalculable at about 13 million to one.Their doctor, James Bofill, was baffled! “I was very ᴇᴍʙᴀʀʀᴀssᴇᴅ, ᴏʙᴠɪᴏᴜsʟʏ,The news ᴡᴀs sᴇɴᴛ ᴛᴏ ᴍᴇ ʙʏ ᴏɴᴇ ᴏF ᴍʏ Fᴇʟʟᴏᴡs. I thought she ᴡᴀs ᴋɪᴅᴅɪɴɢ.” James said
“The babies were the biggest sᴜʀᴘʀɪsᴇ of my life, and I couldn’t imagine my life without them. I believed that God picked me to have these quadruplets, and I felt that He would take care of them and allow them to sᴜʀᴠɪᴠᴇ. To see how far they’ve come makes me feel very blessed. I feel very lucky, like the luckiest mom in the whole world. I wasn’t planning on starting over with more children, and many things have changed since I had my quadruplets, Kenleigh, Kristen, Kayleigh and Kelsey.” she said
