According to SkyNews, 2 women in the UK had split birth quadruplets within 22 hours of one another. Confused? Don't be. Karen Wesolowski and Martha Padgett spent 3 years and like $70,000 trying to get pregnant. The lesbian couple tried it all and finally the IVF took... for both of them.
Using Martha Padgett's eggs and donor sperm the couple decided to double their odds by both undergoing IVF. And the gamble paid off with four-of-a-kind. The couple went for their checkup and the sonograms revealed not 1 pair but 2 pair of bogeys. Then, 9 months later Martha started the action of with 2 healthy babies (Alex and Sophia), 22 hours after which Karen saw her 2 healthy babies (Andrew and Sienna) and wisely decided not to raise the stakes.
