Move over Octomom - Nonomom is one upping you…literally.
According to reports, 32-year-old Karla Vanessa Perez is pregnant with nine babies.
Perez was already blessed with triplets last year and now, after undergoing fertility treatments is pregnant with 6 girls and 3 boys. According to the site, she has already been offically dubbed "nonomom." Perez calls the pregnancy, “miraculous,” and according to sources seems relatively calm.
However, in an interview she voiced some financial concerns, saying “My husband doesn't make so much money as a tire fitter so I think we're going to need extra help with hospital costs and everything."
The expectant Texan mom tells the reporters, “I just hope that everything goes well.” Perez is referring to the significant amount of risks that comes with carrying multiple babies, including high blood pressure, internal bleeding as well as a multitude of risks for the children.
According to Gawker, there are only two recorded deliveries of nonuplets and unfortunately, the babies only lived for a few days.
Nadya “Octomom” Suleman delivered eight babies in 2009 after having 12 embryos inserted in her. Her doctor’s license has since been revoked. According to reports no other details regarding Perez’s pregnancy have been released.
Perez is scheduled to have a C-section on May 20. Her babies will then be placed in incubators until they are strong enough to go home. The nine babies will join Perez’s four other children, one daughter and triplets born last year.
