Couple Who Struggled With Infertility For Five Years Are Now Expecting Quadruplets

A couple who have spent five years trying to have children have now found out they are expecting quadruplets.

Maria and Joesph Sawaged say they've "hit the jackpot" after discovering they have four babies on the way.

The pair are now getting ready to welcome three boys and a girl in the next few weeks, after multiple rounds of fertility treatment.

Maria, from Omaha, Nebraska, told KETV: "It took us almost five years to get to this point."

While Joseph added: "We hit the jackpot, absolutely. Now we can kind of say that we did everything that we could. And finally worked out. So now we got, we got a lot going on ahead of us."

The Sawageds had a difficult battle before getting to this point. The pair have had a string of disappointments in their fertility journey over the years, and even had a false positive in 2020, fuelling further heartbreak.

Their final option was intrauterine insemination (IUI) treatment, which involves putting sperm inside a woman's uterus in the hope of encouraging fertilisation.

It was when Maria got home following a trip to the doctors that their life changed forever.

Reflecting on what happened afterwards, Joseph said: "[Maria] came over to me, she says like, 'Don't be scared or like don't be frightened of what you hear.'

"So I was like, 'Oh this is gonna be bad news.' So she does the recording and the...doctor said the same thing, 'Don't be worried. Don't be concerned'...' but [then he adds] you have four.'

"It's exciting but nerve-wracking. Coming from having no babies at all, and now we're about to have four."

The couple are set to become parents in a matter of weeks, when Maria will welcome the quadruplets at the Methodist Hospital in Omaha.

The couple are also navigating their pregnancy during the pandemic, which means no anti-natal or birthing classes and limited visitors when the baby is born.

It might be a rather unconventional birthing experience, but we're so happy for these two!
