Many couples dream of having children. The birth of a child is truly one of the most uplifting and amazing things a person can ever experience. But for some women, the mere thought of children breaks their hearts.
Tony and Allyson Pont have been trying to ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠᴇ for 10 long years. They shed many tears, the young couple also had four ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇs. Four times Allyson discovered she was pregnant and four times she was completely devastated when she realized she had another ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇ. Even when they found out that Allyson had ꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ issues, they didn’t give up, even though it was an emotional rollercoaster for both of them.
Allyson even began to think that she and Tony didn’t deserve children. After years of ɪɴꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ, sadness and long suffering, they finally decided to try with the help of experts – assisted reproduction. But what happened next, no one expected…
Six weeks after ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇᴘᴛɪᴏɴ, Allyson went to the doctor for a check-up. The doctor had good news for the couple, but much more than they expected.
The first news was that the I.V.F was successful and the egg made it to Allyson’s ᴜᴛᴇʀᴜs. When they heard the next news, they almost fell off their chairs: in the ultrasound images, the doctor saw more than one ꜰᴇᴛᴜs… Allyson had four ꜰᴇᴛᴜsᴇs in her ᴡᴏᴍʙ.
Twins or triplets are more common with I.V.F, but even the doctor didn’t expect to see four babies in her belly! 39-year-old Allyson was pregnant with quadruplets!
After four heartbreaking ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇs, Allyson and Tony had been blessed with four precious new lives. The children were growing so fast and Allyson’s belly was getting bigger. “The best way I can describe being pregnant with four kids… It was like a tumble dryer with four tennis shoes in it,” Allyson says. “There was constant movement. And I loved the feeling”.
After 8 months, four beautiful girls were born – two of them were identical twins. After giving birth, they had to stay in the hospital for a while because they were born prematurely, but they were all healthy.
Today, the babies are beautiful young girls and you can follow their life as a “little big” family on the “4 Peas in a Ponto” Facebook account.
Alyson and Tony had to go through four horrible ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇs, but then received four small miracles as a reward for not giving up on their dream. Even if the road sometimes feels hard and unfair, happiness is around the corner – if you dare to believe it and fight for it. Awesome!
