‘I’m still waiting for it to sink in that I’m carrying four babies,’ mom-to-be says

The Canadian Press

EDMONTON — In this case, it may take a village to raise a child — four of them to be exact — in a northwestern Alberta community.

Tim and Bethany Webb of Hythe planned to have a family when they got married last June and were thrilled when they found out not long after that they were expecting.

The thrill is now tinged with a bit of panic since the couple has learned that Bethany is expecting four identical baby girls.

“I definitely did go through some panic attacks. I’m still in such shock that I have quads,” said Bethany, 22, who has been admitted to an Edmonton hospital until the girls can be safely delivered, probably in early May.

No fertility drugs were involved in the conception.

“One of the nurses that work at the hospital said it was a one in 67 million occurrences,” Bethanie said.

Hythe, population 821 and 500 kilometers northwest of Edmonton, is rallying around the young couple. A fundraiser is scheduled for April, and a GoFundMe campaign is raising cash to help with what will be a busy time for the Webbs.

  • “I think we’re going to go through at least 48 diapers a day,” Bethany laughed.
  • The hospital in nearby Grande Prairie is holding a diaper drive to help with the stockpiling.
  • Tim Webb, 23, said he was almost overcome when he heard the news.
  • “When I first found out, I almost fell over,” he said.

“That day with the ultrasound, when they counted the four, I actually felt quite faint, and I had to ask for a seat because it was just too much all at once.”

The Webbs have been doing busy planning for once the babies, who are to be delivered by C-section, are delivered.

“I realized that we didn’t have a vehicle that could support four babies,” Bethany said. “We were only planning for one, and we’d only bought one crib, and we were only planning on buying one car seat. And then, all of a sudden, it’s going from one to four, and having to find the car seats and find the vehicle and find the cribs and find the space.”

Tim said they will be giving up their one bedroom and move into a house with his mother, who is thrilled at having four grandbabies. The SUV will also have to go to make room for four extra passengers.

Bethany is now trying to figure out how to tell four identical baby girls apart.

“I’m probably going to have to paint their nails or put a bracelet on them or different colored ribbons.”

As for the dad-to-be: “I think of them as blessings really. I’ll probably be pulling my hair out a year from now, but now I’m excited.”
