Ashley started the month-long IVF cycle in June 2014. During that time, she had to endure painful injections to stimulate ovulation. She also had to take several blood tests, and see her doctor often to monitor her progress through ultrasounds. She also stayed healthy by eating well and taking vitamins. But the process was leaving her exhausted.

Frequent headaches were a side effect of the injections, so Ashley resorted to painkillers. The daily shots had also left her abdomen all bruised, and she felt more drained than she ever had in her life. But after the longest month of her entire life, she was finally ready to get her eggs extracted.

The doctors extracted 16 eggs from Ashley´s womb and introduced them to Tyson's sperm. Once the eggs were fertilized, the specialists would pick a few to implant into her uterus. The rest would be frozen, in case it didn't work the first time. Sadly, only two eggs were fertilized, which meant she had no extras. So, this was her only shot.

The embryos were implanted into Ashley´s womb. Then the couple had to wait a week for the blood work to confirm whether or not the implantation had worked. Since this was such a huge event in their lives, they hired a photographer to snap the moment the couple read the test results. Then they opened the envelope which said "positive." Ashley was pregnant, but there was another surprise in store for them.

Ashley and Tyson went for an ultrasound a month later to see how many embryos had implanted. They already figured they could be having twins. But when they looked at the screen, they simply couldn't believe what they were seeing. Both embryos had split, meaning the couple was having two sets of identical twins. The chances of getting quadruplets this way are on in 70 million, so naturally, the couple was stunned.
