Beata Bienias who sᴛʀᴜɢɢʟᴇᴅ to Fᴀʟʟ pregnnat for a ᴅᴇᴄᴀᴅᴇ had triplets after she conceived one baby through IVF and twins naturally in the same week. She is 36 years old, had begun to give up hope of ever becoming a mother due to issues with her health including ᴘᴏʟʏᴄʏsᴛɪᴄ ᴏᴠᴀʀɪᴇs, brought on by weighing over 17 sᴛᴏɴᴇ. But she ʟᴏsᴛ weight and the new mum got more than she ever dreamed of when she finally fell pregnant with one baby through IVF. But ᴍɪʀᴀᴄᴜʟᴏᴜsʟʏ she had also conceived twins just days before her ᴇᴍʙʀʏᴏ ᴛʀᴀɴsFᴇʀ. It means Beata and her husband Pawel, 40, are now parents to four-week-old Amelia and twins Matylda and Borys.
Beata said: “It was the biggest miracle. I ɴᴇᴠᴇʀ thought something this incredible could happen to me. I spent many days thinking that maybe I was the person who would ɴᴇᴠᴇʀ have a baby. I never, ever thought there would be three in there. I still can’t quite believe it when I look at the three of them. I’m so happy.” The pregnancy has been described by one Fᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ ᴇxᴘᴇʀᴛ as ‘almost impossible.’ The besotted mum was told by stunned doctors her ɴᴏɴ-ɪᴅᴇɴᴛɪᴄᴀʟ twins were conceived naturally just a few days before her IVF ᴇᴍʙʀʏᴏ ᴛʀᴀɴsFᴇʀ on May 2 last year. And the stunned parents were still unaware that Beata was already ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴛ at the time she ᴅɪsᴄᴏᴠᴇʀᴇᴅ herIVF treatment had been successful.
Fᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ ᴇxᴘᴇʀᴛ Emma Cannon, who has worked in the field for 25 years and founded the Eᴍᴍᴀ Cᴀɴɴᴏɴ Cʟɪɴɪᴄ ɪɴ Cʜᴇʟsᴇᴀ, Lᴏɴᴅᴏɴ, was stunned to hear of Beata’s triplets. She said: “In my 25 years as a Fᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ sᴘᴇᴄɪᴀʟɪsᴛ, I have only come ᴀᴄʀᴏss one or two sᴄᴇɴᴀʀɪᴏs in which women have Fᴀʟʟᴇɴ pregnant whilst ᴜɴᴅᴇʀɢᴏɪɴɢ ⒾⓋⒻ ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛ. But this has happened before the ᴇᴍʙʀʏᴏ ᴛʀᴀɴsFᴇʀ takes place and they then choose to proceed with the natural pregnnacy, and do ɴᴏᴛ ᴘʀᴏᴄᴇᴇᴅ with the ⒾⓋⒻ ᴄʏᴄʟᴇ. I have ɴᴇᴠᴇʀ encountered anyone who has conceived naturally before, or around the time of, ᴇᴍʙʀʏᴏ ᴛʀᴀɴsFᴇʀ, and then gone on to become pregnant via the IVF cycle as well. But I also know that there is much we do not understand and miracles do happen. I wish Beata all the very best with her three little miracles.”
Recalling the moment she Fᴏᴜɴᴅ ᴏᴜᴛ she was having three babies, Beata added: “The sᴏɴᴏɢʀᴀᴘʜᴇʀ turned to my husband and asked if he wanted to sit down.Then she us there were three babies in there. It was the biggest miracle. I never, ever thought there would be three in there. We were told the two twins were conceived naturally. I couldn’t believe it – after so many years of trying and getting nothing, and then having IVF and conceiving naturally. The pregnancy was brilliant, it was really smooth. I was really ᴡᴏʀʀɪᴇᴅ in the beginning, when I heard I was having triplets. But nothing was an issue. I really enjoyed it. Everyone who looked after me was amazing. I had great care from staff at Royal United Hospital in bath.”
Amelia, Matylda and Borys were born by C-section at the Royal United Hospital on December 13, when the pregnnacy had reached 34 weeks. Amelia was born weighing 5lbs 2oz, Matylda weighed 4lb 5oz, and little Boys weighed ᴊᴜsᴛ 4lbs. All three babies are doing well and are ‘growing to fast’. Beata said: “I am enjoying everything even when they are in bed and I have to clean it up. I feed them nearly every three hours, and I go for walks with them every day. My husband is absolutely proud of his three babies, and cuddles them every day when he gets home from work. I had no idea what to expect from being a mum-of-three all of a sudden. But I’m so happy”.
