Four blimey! Mum, 30, was having natural quadruplets after fertility struggles, and how tough life is with five under THREE
Natalie Maree, 30, of Roebourne, Western Australia, and her husband Kahn struggled for years with fertility issues before having their daughter Kiki.
The couple was then overwhelmed with joy when they became pregnant with their daughter Kiki and became parents two years ago.
But the couple was even more shocked when Natalie found out she was expecting quadruplets last year, and the mom said her jaw dropped.
Natalie said her jaw dropped when she found out she was expecting quadruplets during a routine ultrasound.
‘At our seven-week dating scan, I lay down and the sonographer ran the wand over my belly,’ Natalie told That’s Life.
“‘Triplets!’ I cried. But slowly the sonographer shook his head. Then, without a word, he held up four fingers!” she recalled.
Adding that her husband, Kahn, “almost passed out”.
Natalie delivered the quadruplets by C-section at 34 weeks, after months of weekly scans to check on the babies’ health.
The quadruplets, Maioha Kahn (2.3 kg), Frankee Gene (1.92 kg), Marley Rose (2.2 kg) and Maddison Grace (2.1 kg) were born on July 21 within minutes.
Since their birth, Natalie has been sharing regular updates on the family’s day-to-day life on her Instagram page, Kiki and the Quads, where she details life as a mom to five children under the age of five.
She always refers to the pregnancy as a “miracle” and recently shared a photo of the giant placenta online.
She explained how four had “fused together” to give her babies life, labelling it “amazing”.
But life is certainly busier now with four more babies, and Natalie revealed that it takes her and Kahn an hour and a half to feed all four babies.
She revealed that it takes her and Kahn an hour and a half to feed all four babies, and as soon as they fall asleep, she “counts down” to the next feeding.
But that hasn’t stopped her from working out, as Natalie regularly shows off her post-baby fitness journey.
She recently shared two nearly identical photos of herself in gym clothes..
