When Miranda Crawford went to receive her first ultrasound, she was fully expecting to see a healthy pair of twins. It turned out Miranda got a lot more than she bargained for. After some failed attempts at pregnancy, Miranda and her husband turned to in vitro fertilization. Pretty soon they went from struggling to have a kid to struggling to keep up with all of them. The “twins” turned out to be two separate sets of identical twins, two boys and two girls, all inside Miranda waiting to be born.
According to the NYU Fertility Center, about two percent of all pregnancies result in identical twins. The chance of Miranda’s situation happening? According to her doctor, about 1 in 10,000. Now the Crawford family will have to raise four times the amount of kids they were first expecting. For Miranda and her husband, that’s a good problem to have.
