HOUSTON - A Houston woman gave birth Monday to two sets of identical twins ? something the couple said their doctor told them is only likely to happen in about 1 in 11 million pregnancies.
Sheryl McGowen gave birth by Caesarean section at the Woman's Hospital of Texas Monday to Jacob, Jacoby, Jason and Justin. The twins weighed from 2 pounds, 5 ounces to 3 pounds, 4 ounces.
McGowen, 35, had been taking fertility drugs. Two eggs were implanted in her and both split, according to the Houston Chronicle's Tuesday editions.
Between 30 and 40 percent of in-vitro births are multiples, said Dr. John Buster, director of the reproductive endocrinology and infertility division at Baylor College of Medicine.
The McGowen babies were born during their mother's 30th week of pregnancy.
"I feel proud, happy and even a little scared," said husband Jeffery McGowen. "I really can't put it into words."
