Angela Magdaleno had triplets via in vitro fertilization. That was three years ago.

This month she gave birth to quadruplets. No in vitro, no fertility drugs. All natural.

Naturally, she is a bit shocked and stunned. The Associated Press reports:
The latest additions -- two girls and two boys -- were doing well Wednesday, while their mother, resting at home, said: "I'm happy because they're healthy and so am I."

Still, Magdaleno, 40, worried she might be overwhelmed with the work and sometimes struggles with mixed emotions about the future.

"I don't know if I'm sad or happy," she said. "I'm happy but, I don't know. I don't know how to explain it."
Her husband, Afredo Anzaldo, perhaps put it best. When Magdaleno found out she was pregnant was quadruplets, Anzaldo said, "she wanted to run."

Angela Magdaleno now has nine children in all.

Her ambivalence is more than understandable -- the family lives in a one-bedroom apartment. Send those folks some $$, if you're flush!
