Julie and Dave Grygla got the surprise of their lives when they found out they were having TRIPLETS! Well… ALMOST the surprise of their lives… because just a short while later, when her triplet boys were 5 months old, Julie found out she was pregant again.. with spontaneous TWINS! In May they will have 5 babies all 14 months old and younger!
The Grygla’s triplets were conceived through infertility treatments. Two embryos were implanted and one of the embryos split into two, resulting in one fraternal and two identical twins. The identical boys were found to have TTTS (Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome) and after a successful surgical procedure they were no longer at risk of the syndrome. Julie delivered 3 months early and the triplets spent a long time in the NICU. All of that experience, while extremely difficult and stressful, has prepared the Gryglas for their upcoming twin delivery… which must seem like a walk in the park compared to triplets! What are the odds of conceiving triplets by IVF and then conceiving twins spontenously??
We wish the Gryglas all the best for a happy and healthy life with their 5 little bundles of joy!
Check out this video on the delivery of the triplets, which was filmed before Julie became pregnant with the twins!
