After six weeks, it was time to visit the doctor, who lived in Honduras, to receive their tiny embryos. And when they arrived, the couple was met with a completely different surprise.
“We began to describe everything to our doctor in Spanish (broken Spanish, that is). He asked us a few times if we were sure that we had transferred two embryos. Yes, of course we were sure, we said.”
The couple then discovered to their shock that one of those embryos had split in two inside Rachel’s womb. She was indeed pregnant—not only with twins, but triplets!
