“We both really, really want a boy. We’d be over the moon, so we will keep trying.
“We’re besotted with the girls but Jose is outnumbered and it would be nice to even things out. I’m lucky that I enjoy being pregnant. I’ve never had any major problems, so it’s not a big stress for me.
“I’ve had so many girls I’m not sure what I’d do with a son. I just know I’d be blessed to have one. He and Jose would have an incredible bond. I hope I can give him that.“I have no upper limit on how many children I’d have. I’d have another 10 if it meant having a boy.”
“It’s chaos looking after 14 girls but we wouldn’t have it any other way. I’ve always wanted to be a mum. When I was younger, I spent a lot of time looking after my younger brother and sister. Although twins run in my family, I never expected I’d have three sets. I know we’re blessed.”
“I was shocked and terrified. I was so young and I didn’t know what to do. But I’m a Christian, so abortion was never an option. And we were very lucky as both sets of parents supported us.”
“My older girls were not planned.
“Every time I got pregnant, I was shocked. I tried all types of contraception but something always went wrong. But when the girls were born, I was always over the moon.”
“I looked at the screen and thought one must be a cyst before it sunk in. I almost passed out with shock and excitement.
“I was scared but happy. When I showed Jose the photo it took him a few seconds to realise there were two babies. He burst into tears of happiness.”
“The doctors told me it was more common to have a boy and a girl than same-sex twins. I let myself get excited.
“We found out the sex at one of my scans and it was two girls – I guess I should have known. We don’t let ourselves get upset as we feel so lucky to have healthy babies. But it doesn’t mean that we don’t want a boy.”
“I just had a feeling. I went to hospital with stomach pains and they suspected a kidney infection but couldn’t do anything until they scanned the baby. The doctor was staring at the screen looking puzzled. Eventually, he said both babies were fine. I was right.”
“I knew I’d got my dates right and then it sunk in. I was having more twins. The doctor said there’d be more chance of a lottery win. But a scan found there were two.“I was still stunned as the odds on having three sets are so high. I did wonder if one might finally be a boy.”
“Jose works seven days a week to support us. For now, I’ve had a contraceptive coil fitted but I think we’ll start trying for another baby when the youngest are four.”
