    It is astounding that she carried them to 32 weeks. Amazing.

    Back in my NICU days, I was able to help care for - what was then- the only surviving sextuplets in the world- the Dilleys. It was joyous chaos as I was pregnant with my son then. They just turned 20!

    Going home to a 2 bedroom, 1 bath home. Wow, where will they put everything? The video said they already have 5 cribs & carseats. The babies' older brother is really going to be amazed. They were blessed.

    Is this another one of those IVF mis-steps, or is this natural quintuplets, like the Dionne sisters?
