Interesting article, just wanted to say that the cutoff for flying is normally 36 weeks for international travel.

correct me if i am wrong but quads are for babies born of the same pregnancy right. i still do not get the "they are not quads because they did not come from the same egg." well by that thinking a majority  twins are not twins because they did not come from the same egg

Can I just say, 13 lbs 2 oz is NOT "nearly 14 lbs." It's barely over 13 lbs. You don't round up unless the remainder is over halfway.

If you are bleeding while you are pregnant, it is NOT YOUR PERIOD!!!! You cannot be pregnant and have a period. Can not! grrr

Dixiemama25... You are correct. The woman had quadruplets... a set of identical triplets and a single fraternal quad.

I think the most amazing birth of 2013 was the 10lb 4oz baby born just before lunch after five hours of labor and four pushes. But that was my baby so I may be just a little biased.

Hospital tried to tell me I wasn't in labor, apparently I didn't appear to be in enough pain. They said they would check me "just in case" I was 9cm! Had my son less then an hour later

You can have a period while being pregnant... My aunt actually conceived two different times during one pregnancy. One baby was considered a month premature while the other was considered full term.

The person who took the picture of the lady giving birth on the lawn outside the hospital was widely responsible for the attention this case received and ultimately for the fact that the director of the clinic was suspended. According to the mayor of the town, this wasn't the first time someone had been turned away only to give birth on the lawn. If the picture hadn't been published all over the place, it is likley nothing would have been done.
