XP: IVF quadruplets story — The Bump

XP: IVF quadruplets story

This is a crazy, amazing story.

A couple tried for 5 years to get pregnant, unsuccessfully.  The woman's older sister offers to be a gestational carrier for the couple.  Both women had two embryos transferred to try and increase their odds.  Both end up carrying twins.  They were all born last week and are considered quads because they were conceived and delivered on the same day.
