Morales, 30, and Isaac, 29, are documenting their story online in a bid to help other hopeful parents. They were over the moon when they were told to expect not one but four babies.
Morales Osuna, 30, from San Diego, California, gave birth to three girls and one boy via C-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ, following three years of fertility treatment. She managed to carry the quadruplets – who all weighed 4lbs – until 34 weeks, enjoying a stress-free pregnancy.
They’d spent three years undergoing fertility treatment so they could start their own family – and Morale even underwent sᴜʀɢᴇʀʏ to improve her chances of conceiving. But their excitement was short lived when doctors advised the couple to ᴛᴇʀᴍɪɴᴀᴛᴇ two of their babies to avoid a ʀɪsᴋʏ pregnancy. Thankfully the couple refused and after a stress-free pregnancy, their four babies, three girls and one boy, Marissa, Marcelo, Ivanna and Isabel were all born on June 6 – and they all weighed over 4lbs when they were 34 weeks old by C-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ. They were all home together just nine days later.
They started trying for a baby in 2015 but she had a number of fertility problems. She had ᴄʏsᴛ ᴏɴ ʜᴇʀ ᴏᴠᴀʀɪᴇs, a ʙʟᴏᴄᴋᴇᴅ Fᴀʟʟᴏᴘɪᴀɴ tube as well as ᴇɴᴅᴏᴍᴇᴛʀɪᴏsɪs, so falling pregnant wasn’t going to be easy. “We’d always wanted four children but we never imagined we’d have four all at one. I felt excited but the doctors were quick to tell us about how ʀɪsᴋʏ it was. We were offered to ᴛᴇʀᴍɪɴᴀᴛᴇ two embryos but there was no way we could chose. I hardly had any morning sɪᴄᴋɴᴇss and my pregnancy was really smooth the whole way through. I managed to carry the quadruplets up until they were 34 weeks old before I had a C-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ.” She saidThey are very well behaved but having four babies is hard work with her. The couple chose to document their journey online – on their ‘Zero 2 Quads’ blog – from the start of their pregnancy to help inspire other hopeful parents.
Morales, a teacher, said: “Not only do we want to document our quads milestones but we want to show everyone else not to give up on their baby dreams.”
