South African woman gives birth to 10 babies in Pretoria - reports



A South African woman has reportedly given birth to 10 babies in what would be a new world record.

Gosiame Thamara Sithole's husband says they were astonished by decuplets after scans only showed eight in the womb.

"It's seven boys and three girls. I am happy. I am emotional. I can't talk much," her husband Teboho Tsotetsi told Pretoria News after the birth.

One South African official confirmed the births to the BBC, however another said they were yet to see the babies.

Guinness World Records told the BBC it was investigating Ms Sithole's case.

1. The mind wobbles.

I get my ass kicked fostering a kitten. The lack of sleep, the constant feedings, toileting.

And that's a kitten.

But 10 babies? Oh, no. I'd be bonkers before the week was out.

3. Nothing about birth weight of babies

Unimaginable stress to the mother's body.

6. People with 1 baby pregancies

Have trouble getting out of chairs.

She would have a terrible futile struggle with the size she is showing

I hope she has lots of help with daily life because she definitely needs it.
