Sebastian and I were married on May 31st, 2018. I was 24 and he was 26. We had been dating for 5 years and engaged for 3 months. Just before Thanksgiving of 2018 we decided we wanted to proactively try to conceive our first child. Two years later, we were still not pregnant and we were both tired of the countless negative pregnancy tests.
On January 11th, 2020 we started our first round of IVF and on February 1st the doctor confirmed what I had suspected: we were just past 3 weeks pregnant! At 13 weeks we went in for our first ultrasound that would be able to see the babies. We were excited and nervous to find out if we were going to be parents of just one baby or IVF multiples. We weren't incredibly shocked when the technician found two heartbeats, but then she found another, and another, and another and oh yeah, another. We were expecting sextuplets! Sebastian and I instantly both became very worried about how this pregnancy would progress but our doctor assured us that our team would do whatever to keep the Davenport sextuplets healthy. When we asked how this was possible, we were shocked to see that do a paper error, on our insemination instead of planting three eggs they actually planted five! Then one of those five divided into twins.
Even with all the stress, Sebastian and I find time to enjoy the pregnancy and everything that comes with having babies. We decided to move out of our four bedroom, two story home and into a new house. Both of us very thankful for our trust funds and for the jobs we'd gotten after graduating from good private colleges as we spent a large chunk on a ten bedroom ranch home. The house itself is beautiful and we bought it pre-furnished which made our lives a lot easier. Though, we took the second largest bedroom which was right next to the master bedroom and donated its furniture, turning that room into a nursery for the sextuplets, painting it a nice mint green. All the furniture, toys and clothing have been ordered, we're just waiting for the safe birth of sextuplets before moving it all into the house. It'll be easier to keep the babies in the same room close by for now, when they're older they'll be bale to have their own rooms.
We then bought two triple strollers, a single six baby stroller and bought another car to go with our Mercedes convertible and Cadillac Escalade, this one is more kid friendly and big enough for six car seats to fit the big family we were about to become.
At 22 weeks I was put on bed rest and our doctor told us that if I hadn't gone into labour by 32 weeks they would induce.
In the morning on August 12th, just seven days before my own birthday, my back began to ache more than usual. By the afternoon I was having mild contractions but nothing I couldn't handle. After dinner, the contractions had become a little painful and then at 10:30 pm there was a pop! My water had broken. I was so scared but I also knew that I was 30 weeks and so there was a very good chance my babies would survive.
We arrived at the hospital just after 11 and were admitted immediately. I had been taken to the OR for my c-section.
I was ready to meet our babies.
Sextuplet A was born at 12:23am, kicking and screaming as the nurses exclaimed that Baby A was a boy! His "sac-buddy" (or twin, to be more scientific ) was born at 12:25am, and Baby B was also a boy. Their placenta was then removed.
At 12:33 , Baby C was born and we met our third boy. He was smaller than her brothers but crying nonetheless. After delivering her placenta, it was time to meet Baby D. At 12:38, we had our fourth baby: a fourth boy! At this point, I was starting to suspect we may be getting all boys, we hadn't found out the babies genders as we wanted it to be a surprise. Soon after that at 12:40 we welcomed Baby E, our fifth baby boy. We were stunned. However, what happened next stunned us even more.
Finally at 12:42 we welcomed Baby F, our first baby girl and what we thought would be our last baby. When removing the placenta the doctors noticed another baby! Surprise Baby G, another girl, who was actually the twin of baby F. She was by far the smallest of the bunch which was probably why we missed her as she was hidden behind her much bigger sister.
The babies were all quite small but they were all stable. Four hours later Sebastian wheeled me down to the NICU so we could officially name our children.
Baby A weighed 2 lbs, 5 oz. He had a few wisps of light blonde hair and brown eyes. We named him, Emmett Matthew Davenport.
Baby B, the second biggest, weighed 2 lbs , 11 0z. He, being identical, looked just like his twin. We named him, Hunter Mason Daveport.
Baby C, weighed 2 lbs, 9 oz. He had blonde hair and green eyes, just like Dad. We named him, Logan Archer Davenport.
Baby D weighed in at 2 lbs, 9 oz. He had blonde hair and green eyes, just like Dad. We named him, Preston Chase Davenport.
Baby E weighed in at 2 lbs, 7 oz. He had blonde hair and green eyes, just like Dad. We named him, Jackson Wyatt Daveport.
Baby F, out first little girl was the biggest, she weighed in at 3 lbs even. She had brown hair and green eyes. We named her, Stella Imogen Davenport.
Surprise Baby G, was the smallest, weighed in at 1 lb, 8 oz. She, being identical, looked just like her twin. We named her, Vivienne Lydia Davenport.
The NICU stay was long and trying. We were incredibly lucky that our babies were strong fighters like their mom and dad, thankfully Hunter, Logan, Preston, Jackson and Stella had no complications at all other the just needing to gain weight. On September 8th, we brought home Hunter and Stella after they passed the car-seat test on their first try. Six days later Logan passed his test, it took just one try as well, and later that night we brought him home. Three days after that we brought home Jackson and Preston home, though they took four tries for them to pass it.
Emmett and Vivienne, although incredibly resilient, faced minor complications. Emmett was suffering from temporary jaundice, and Vivienne needed to have a feeding tube for a few extra weeks as she was so tiny and was having trouble drinking enough to gain a sufficient weight gain. Luckily neither complication kept them in hospital long, and on September 30th Emmett came home, followed a week and a half later by Vivienne.
15 years later, on August 13th, 2035 it was the septuplets 15th birthday. We were having all our family and friends over, including a very surprising eighth child. When the septuplets were seven years old, we were shocked and awed when we welcomed a baby via natural means, daughter Genevieve Quinn Davenport, who is a mini me with brown hair and brown eyes. After her birth I got my tubes tied just to be sure we wouldn't have another pregnancy.
The last fifteen years had been incredibly difficult but our kids had grown into exceptional people, all with their own personalities, though Genevieve's is still developing.
Emmett is an apprehensive and timid boy, though sweet as can be, with downy blonde hair and molten brown eyes.
Hunter is a self-assured and athletic young man, with identical looks to Emmett.
Logan is a confident thrill seeker, with spiky blonde hair and piercing green eyes..
Preston is a thoughtful and charismatic young man, and has grown into the spitting image of Sebastian.
Jackson is a competitive and bright, though a bit egotistical, young gentlemen, and has coiffed blonde hair and light green eyes.
Stella is an enthusiastic and intelligent young woman, and has shiny chestnut locks, cut short in a bob style with lively green eyes.
Vivienne is ingenious and warm, though a little bossy young lady, and has the same green eyes and shiny chestnut locks as Stella though her hair is long and silken.
We have the perfect family and Sebastian and I could not ask for anything more.
