A MUM-OF-QUINTUPLETS explains that often, people say she’s so lucky she doesn’t need to have another baby, before they realize she’s planning on having more.
The mother-of-five regularly posts photos of her beautiful mother-in-law and shares snippets of their lives as a family.
Hannah Merton’s mother was TikTok to explain that people assumed that because she had given birth to so many children, she wouldn’t try any more – but they were wrong.
She said: “I was told I was ‘lucky’ to have given birth to five children at once and now I never have to be pregnant again.
“They didn’t know I wanted more.”

But this isn’t the first time Hannah has had to unravel assumptions about her children as many have assumed her children are the result of IVF.
She said, “I wanted to address this comment because I’ve received it so many times. Everyone thinks or assumes or asks if it’s IVF. No, it’s not.
“I took a pill called Letrozole and it was just to help me ovulate and I did!”
“However, the probability of that happening is not very high. Our chances for [twins] they told us 10% and triplets 1%. So needless to say we were shocked when we were five. “
The birth of her 5 babies is a time of great celebration for the family but also a time of grief and mourning.
Sadly, one of the five children, Meredith, died three days after she was born.
Talking about that difficult time, Hannah said: “She got lung very early. But her tiny 1lb 4oz herself had to fight.
“Jake rushed to the NICU to name her and be with her while I was recovering.
“I called and talked to her on the phone. I told her to do her best because I needed her and I told her over and over again how much she loves her. “
Although she was stable a few hours after giving birth, she was unwell the next day and that afternoon she had a collapsed lung.
Hannah said: “I never thought I would lose her no matter how sick she was. It was one of those things you said could never happen to you.
“Three days after giving birth, I was called and asked to go to the hospital as soon as possible. We called the family and made an appointment to see us at the NICU.
“When we arrived, the nurses and doctors were waiting for us and they ran a scan of Merri’s brain. They told us our baby girl wouldn’t make it.
“March 8, at 5:05 p.m., my baby girl breathed her last in my arms and went to God in heaven. Our lives will truly never be the same.”
One of the couple’s other gorgeous children had several procedures including a tracheostomy and was kept in the hospital much longer than his siblings.
He is now safely home with his family.
One woman shared that she mom tried to have another baby and got cereal – she drives them around on a bus and they’ll have THREE babysitters at once.
Add this The mother of two boys, who wanted to try and find a girl, welcomed their dicks – and wake up at 3 am because feeding them takes three HOURS.
And this mother, 20 years old, revealed that she tried to get pregnant for 2 years only to then have her fifties – when she showed her HUGE diapers.
