After suffering a loss, Shaylee Bush and her husband Mykel were ecstatic to welcome Haisley into the world. When they learn about the impending birth of the babies, they are still in a state of shock at becoming parents for the first time. When Haisley was only a few months old, they learned that Shaylee was expecting twins. She gave birth to twins Harlow and Oaklyn less than 11 months after giving birth to their daughter. One mother was astonished to learn she was expecting again, this time with twins, barely weeks after giving birth to her first child, but she was left with little option in the matter.
“We were happy when Haisley came into our lives and as soon as we felt comfortable to do so, we started having sex again,” stated Shaylee from Utah, USA. It didn’t take long for me to start exhibiting all the pregnancy symptoms, and 12 weeks after Haisley gave birth, we discovered we were carrying another child. We were informed that the pregnancy was twins at 11 weeks, and we were in shock. It is an extraordinary thing to go from the suffering of a miscarriage to the pure joy of giving birth to three lovely girls in less than a year.
Just by remaining faithful, my husband and I now have the family of our dreams. Shaylee gave birth to twins Harlow and Oaklyn in October 2019, while Haisley, who is now three, was born at 37 weeks in November 2018. Their kids will share the same age for a month every year, but when they start school, Haisley will be a grade taller than the twins. Shaylee had been pregnant for almost 18 months in a row, with only a 6-week break in between. Her physique has been impacted, and she is waiting for surgery to restore her abs.
It has occasionally been difficult, especially over the past few months with twins, she admits. The experience of raising two children in two distinct households you compared to one is actually quite harsh.
My body didn’t have a chance to recover from my first pregnancy, not only that, and had to bear twice the weight. It’s great to now focus on the motherhood part of the mother, not the pregnancy part. The surgery was aimed at repairing Shaylee’s stomach, as her muscles were stretched so much that there is now a 4-inch gap between her abdominal muscles, which needs to be stitched together.
“But in the end it was all worth it,” she said. ‘I’m excited about what the future holds for me and my family.’
