She will have two baby showers and a diaper party before the bed rest begins. She also said she has great family support. McCutcheon said his family is “absolutely stoked” about the upcoming births of the quads.
“My mom lives five minutes away and all of my family is local,” Stevens said. “They are really excited.”
She said so far, the pregnancy seems normal, although she admits being a lot more nauseous with this pregnancy.
“We want to make sure we do everything right so the babies don’t come too early,” McCutcheon said.
Stevens said her other two children are excited about the upcoming births of their two brothers and two sisters.
While Stevens and McCutcheon wanted to have a baby, they admit the pregnancy was “unexpected.”
The two know all the difficulties that await them after the babies are born. The quads likely will stay in the hospital anywhere from a month to six months, and once home, trying to get the four on the same feeding and sleep schedules will be a challenge. They have already decided on three names — Bennett and Bentley for the boys and Kinley for one of the girls. So far everything is going “perfect” with the pregnancy, the couple said.
McCutcheon currently works three 12-hour shifts, 6:30 p.m. to 7 a.m. He said he will “sleep when I can.”
“I think it will be really fun,” he said. “We both grew up playing sports and I think it will be fun going to the kids’ different sporting events.”
Stevens said she will do everything she can to make sure her other two children — Gavin and Grace — are not ignored.
“The two have an absolute awesome life now. I will not take anything away from those two,” she said.
“We are trying to do everything we can with them now,” McCutcheon said. “I know we will be completely overwhelmed for the first six months.”
