A mum who fell pregnant with twins six weeks after having her first child has given birth to THREE daughters in less than a year.
Shaylee Bush, 31, and husband Mykel, 40, were overjoyed at the birth of Haisley, after suffering a miscarriage.
And they were very much still getting to grips with being first time parents when they fell pregnant just SIX weeks later.
They found out when Haisley was just three months old, and weeks later discovered shocked Shaylee was carrying TWINS.
They stay at home mum gave birth to twins Harlow and Oaklyn just under 11 months after she’d had her daughter.
Shaylee, from Saint Georges, Utah, said: “We were over the moon when Haisley arrived into our lives, and, as soon as it was safe to do so, we just started having sex again.
“It didn’t take long before I was getting all the tell tale signs of pregnancy, and 12 weeks after giving birth to Haisley we realised I was pregnant again.
“At 11 weeks we were told it was twins and we couldn’t believe it.
“To go from the heartbreak of a miscarriage to the sheer joy of bringing three beautiful girls into the world in less than a year was quite something.
“Me and my husband just kept the faith and now we have the family we always dreamed of.”
Haisley, now three, was born at 37 weeks in November 2018 and gave birth to twins Harlow and Oaklyn, now two, in October 2019.
For a month every year her daughters will all be the same age, but Haisley will be a grade above the twins when they eventually start school.
In total, Shaylee was pregnant for almost 18 months straight with only a six week gap in between.
This has taken its toll on her body and she is waiting for an operation to repair her abdominal muscles.
“At times it was hard – especially the last few months with the twins,” she said.
“The different feeling of having two babies grow inside of you in comparison to one is really quite extreme.
“My body had no chance to recover after my first pregnancy, and not only that, it then had to carry twice as much weight.
“It’s amazing now to focus on the mum part of motherhood and not the pregnancy part.
“I’m in need of an operation to repair my stomach as my muscles stretched so much there is now a 4-inch gap between my abs which needs to be sewn together.
“But it was all worth it in the end and I’m so excited for what the future holds for me and my family.”
