if you found out your having quadruplets what would you have done ?

just past 13 weeks ago i found out i was having quads, they were concieved naturally so it was a huge surprise ! we really went through every emotion possible the first couple of weeks but now our main job is to get these babies born healthy. The best part is when i tell people that im having quads and there reaction; The blank stare and then OMG ARE YOU SERIOUS , its so priceless.

But more importantly we were offered to reduce the number of babies to twins, we refused. i told them i would never do that and the preganancy is going great so far so they haven't really tryed to ask again but still , would you hasve reduced the number ?

  • Congrats.....Wow're gonna be busy : )
    No, I don't believe I would have reduced the number. They are a gift from God not a numbers option.

  • I would NEVER reduce the number of babies I was carrying, if it ever came to that. That's crazy that you conceived them naturally, wow! Good for you for sticking up for your babies =] And good luck with your pregnancy!

  • Just don't turn into a Kate Gosselin. Congrats and I agree with the decision not to reduce. Get some rest now you are gonna need it. Gather your friends and family close, you are also going to need them.

  • Congratulations!!! And wow, oh my!! No, I wouldn't reduce. It's one reason I personally wouldn't use big time fertility drugs, I couldn't bear to face that decision. Having it happen naturally would really make me feel like it was meant to be.
