After a long struggle with infertility, Beth and Jim Glass of south St. Louis are now the parents of five tiny babies.

As with most couples who have had mega-multiples, The Glass’ were shocked to find out that 5 embryos had taken. At six weeks, doctors said they thought she was pregnant with twins, but when they listened again at seven weeks heard not two – but five.

Beth was put on bedrest in early June to ensure a successful pregnancy and was induced today after getting to 33 weeks.

According to the hospital, the babies and mom are doing well.

In Birth order, the 3 boys and 2 girls weighed:

  • Abigale Elizabeth – 3 pounds, 4 ounces
  • Luke Mitchel – 3 pounds, 1 ounce
  • Evan Michael – 3 pounds
  • Brady Quinn – 3 pounds, 12 ounces
  • Sydney Elise – 3 pounds, 2 ounces

Congratulations to the couple. Life is about to get exciting!
