Alexzandria Wolliston, said she realized she had hit the ‘twin lottery’ when ᴅᴏᴄᴛᴏʀs informed her she was expecting twins again last Mother’s Day . She welcomed Mark and Malakhi in March 2019 before ᴅᴏᴄᴛᴏʀs informed her she was once again ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴛ with twins just weeks after, all in the same year.
Alexzandria ,25-year-old from West Palm Beach, Florida who is also mom of 2-year-old daughter, Ar’Mani, ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠᴇᴅ all her children naturally. She wasn’t sᴄᴀʀᴇᴅ when she went for an ᴜʟᴛʀᴀsᴏᴜɴᴅ in June, and two ʜᴇᴀʀᴛʙᴇᴀᴛsappeared on the monitor. She said :” I come from a big family. I knew I’d be able to handle it. My only ғᴇᴀʀ was, is my ʙᴏᴅʏ going to be able to handle this?” It turned out that Wolliston’s second ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴄʏ was easier than the first. But she also moved in with her mother for extra support. She added:” I walked everywhere. People would sᴛᴏᴘ me in the supermarket and say, ‘You are so strong. How are you still up and moving? I believes my four boys were a gift from her maternal and paternal grandmothers. Both women ʟᴏsᴛ sets of twins. I think about that a lot and it keeps me positive. I feel like they gave me their kids.”
Twin births account for 3% of all ʟɪᴠᴇ ʙɪʀᴛʜs, according to Dʀ. Mɪᴄʜᴀᴇʟ Cᴀᴄᴋᴏᴠɪᴄ associate of professor of ᴍᴀᴛᴇʀɴᴀʟ ғᴇᴛᴀʟ ᴍᴇᴅɪᴄɪɴᴇ at Tʜᴇ Oʜɪᴏ Sᴛᴀᴛᴇ Uɴɪᴠᴇʀsɪᴛʏ. While the chances of having two sets of twins in one year is ‘ᴘʀᴇᴛᴛʏ ʀᴀʀᴇ,’ Cackovic has seen it before. Cackovic said:”It does happen. About 50 in a thousand are twin births. Their makeup is that they sᴜᴘᴇʀ ᴏᴠᴜʟᴀᴛᴇ. They ᴏᴠᴜʟᴀᴛᴇ ᴍᴏʀᴇ ᴛʜᴀɴ ᴏɴᴇ ᴇɢɢ.” Kaylen and Kayleb were born Dec. 27. They were born at 34 weeks old. Kayleb has just come home from the ɴᴇᴏɴᴀᴛᴀʟ ɪɴᴛᴇɴsɪᴠᴇ ᴄᴀʀᴇ ᴜɴɪᴛ where his brother Kayleb remains, learning to eat on his own.
