A mum-of-two tried for another baby… then fell pregnant with quintuplets.
Megan Hulen and her husband Joshua – who have two boys called Jacob, eight, and Matthew, three – hoped to have a little girl.
But during an ultrasound scan, they found out they were expecting five babies.
As Megan has polycystic ovary syndrome and has been through fertility treatment in the past, she was stunned by the news.
Doctors feared some of the babies wouldn’t be viable, but thankfully the pregnancy went to plan and the little ones are happy and healthy.
One year on, the parents say the experience has been “chaotic” but “brilliant”.
Megan, from Minot, North Dakota, told Fabulous: “It‘s been a learning experience. With every new milestone we have felt like we have had to relearn how to do things with them.
“But some great things they are doing now is holding their own bottles, crawling, furniture cruising and sleeping through the night.
“Our first year has been very chaotic but still full of love for every baby and of course our big boys too. They have been brilliant.”
On a typical day, Megan gets up at 3am for the first morning feed.
She nurses her babies again at 7am, before getting another half an hour kip.
Megan homeschools her eldest son Jacob.
She also has to keep track of medication for her son Matthew, who has nager syndrome.
Next on her military-style schedule are more feeds and nappy changes.
The parents log this information using an app so to ensure all kids are covered.
Megan said: “In between dealing with the quints I’m busy chasing my two-year-old and making sure my seven-year-old is getting his homework done.
“Every once in a while I will have time to vacuum the carpet or do a load of laundry.”
Now they have seven children, the parents hope to move to a bigger house in the future.
They are also planning to buy a bigger car with nine seats so they can drive the entire family around at once.
We don’t know how they do it!
