A mother has revealed she fell pregnant just six weeks after having her first child – and she’s carrying twins.
The unusual scenario means that the mum will have given birth to three daughters within one year.
Shaylee Bush, 31, and husband, Mykel, 40, were thrilled to be parents to Haisley after dealing with a miscarriage.
But, they were just learning to cope with their newborn when they discovered Shaylee was pregnant again – six weeks later.
The couple discovered their new pregnancy when Haisley was three months old and a few weeks later found out they were having twins.
Shaylee, a stay at home mum, delivered Harlow and Oaklyn just 11 months after having her first daughter, reports the Mirror.
The mum, who loves in Utah, US, 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.”
She added: “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 was born at 37 weeks gestation in November 2018 while the twins were delivered in October 2019.
For one month of every year all of Shaylee’s daughters will be the same age, but Haisley will be a year above her sisters when they start school.
In total, Shaylee was pregnant for almost 18months – with a gap of only six months in between.
She is currently waiting for surgery to repair her abdominal muscles due to an issue during her pregnancies.
“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.”
