The successful delivery of nonuplets would be one of the highest multiple births ever recorded.
As you read this post, a Mexican woman is pregnant with nine babies – six girls and three boys – the country’s main broadcaster, Televisa, reported last Thursday.
The woman, who was identified as Karla Vanessa Perez of the northeastern state of Coahuila which borders Texas, is currently being managed by medical experts at a hospital in the state capital Saltillo. Perez, whose age was not given in the report, would be due to give birth on sept 20.
“It’s very early to think of names for the babies. First I hope that everything goes well,” she said.
