Some couples have no problem conceiving their own child, but there are others who are struggling to do this for years. But there are now different modern methods that couples can try.
But what if it fails?
This is what happened to Annie Johnson and her husband, Joby. The couple is close to giving up. They knew that they needed to get help when years of trying to conceive naturally through expensive fertility treatments did not work. Chrissy, Annie’s older sister, offered them something that shocked them. However, her offer was not the only surprise that they will receive in their life.
Chrissy has two young boys of her own and she had no complication during their births, there was no doubt that she would be able to carry more children succeed in the future. She cannot just watch while watching her sister struggle to conceive of her own for half a decade. During her interview with Daily Mail UK, she said that no one should have to deal with something like this, especially her sister. “It was heartbreaking.
When they started having problems getting pregnant it was devastating to watch,” she said. She knew that she had to do something to help.
She told Annie about her proposal – she offered to surrogate if they wanted to give it one more try!
It didn’t take long for both sisters to start feeling the symptoms of pregnancy. But as soon as they went to for an ultrasound, what the doctors found was something that they never expected!
“They found one in me and then they moved over and saw another little sac with another flickering heartbeat, and we knew that we still had Chrissy left to go,” Annie told Daily Mail UK. Chrissy was also pregnant with twins.
Everything went swiftly for the pregnant sisters and it became more special when they went into labor on the same day. They both decided to go for C-section surgeries. Chrissy decided to give birth first so her sister could the birth of her twin boys, Charlie and Tommy, while Annie welcomed her twin girls, Gracie and Haddie.
Annie shared how overwhelmingly exciting the births of their children has been not only to them, but also for the entire family. They asked to have at least one child, and they were blessed with four! She said, “Trying to get at least one baby, we are just so excited to take all four of them home and they’re all healthy.”
