A New Jersey mother Lindsay Hay is going viral after sharing amazing photos of her pregnancy journey, showcasing her quadruplet-filled belly side by side with her four little bundles of joy.
Lindsay and her husband Syman, who already had a three-year-old son Carson, had hoped to expand their family. Little did they know that life had planned some obstacles on their journey to second-time parenthood.
As she went through multiple miscarriages before getting pregnant with her quadruplets. Even then, her doctors urged her to consider a selective pregnancy reduction—which she refused.
Lindsay began documenting her pregnancy and sharing her experiences on Instagram and Facebook. Pregnancy brought morning sickness, endless health checkups to monitor hers and the babies’ health as well as a mix of emotions such as excitement, fear, hope and blessings. But, she stayed strong and positive.
She was able to carry the babies to 30 weeks and 4 days, and snapped the picture on the left capturing the size of her belly at that point. On the right, the babies at 30 weeks and 4 days old. Amazing how much things can change in about seven months, isn’t it ?
Hay says quads Caiden, Madison, Lucas and Grayson have all been thriving at home after their initial 45-day NICU stay. And it may surprise you to hear that Hay says parenting multiples isn’t as chaotic as it’s often portrayed.
