With the advancement in technology, it becomes easier for pregnant women as to what to expect when they give birth. Months ahead, one can already know the gender of the baby that is about to be born so the proper colors and choices of clothes and other baby needs can be bought beforehand. In addition, moms can also get the chance of knowing if its a single baby or more that is inside their womb.
That is why this mom form Ukraine was really shocked when she took notice of the ultrasound result of her pregnancy. All the while, because of the enormous size of her baby bump, she expected that she is supposed to give birth to twins. However, that is not the case as her uterus contains not only two but five babies!
Oksana Kobeletska has already been a mother to a three-year-old girl when she got pregnant again. Her face seemed like it was doused in cold water when she heard the news from her doctor.
“When I saw the shock on the doctor’s face, my heart stopped for a moment. Then I heard him mumbling something like: ‘You deserve to get a big house by the sea,” Kobeletska said.
When it was finally confirmed that she was indeed carrying five fetuses, the news about her pregnancy spread like wildfire. According to statistics, a quintuplet pregnancy occurs only in 1 out of nearly 50 million pregnant women.
According to the Trending News Portal, Oksana’s pregnancy is the first reported case of quintuplets in the Ukraine!
That being said, many people were excited to witness such a rare occurrence. The surprised mother was quoted as saying:
“I’m very shocked because I thought that (I was having) twins or something like that. Nobody in our family has ever had it. There was not a single case of that kind. Generally speaking, I didn’t expect it and never anticipated it. I can’t even imagine right now how it is going to be, to raise so many children at once.”
Eight doctors and nurses came to aid the Ukrainian mom while she was giving birth. Despite the possible complications, Oksana delivered five healthy babies with no major complications!
After giving birth, the Ukrainian mom received a 100-square-meter apartment from the delighted city officials. The parents already had names ready for their quintuplets. The three boys and two girls were named Denis, Dariya, Vladislav, Oleksandra, and David.
