A MUM-to-be expecting triplets conceived 10 days apart has showed off her blossoming bump at 28 weeks – claiming she doesn’t have any stretch marks.
The woman, from the US, fell pregnant with twins naturally and was stunned when doctors later told her she was carrying triplets – after a third baby was conceived more than a week after the twins.
The mum-to-be said she and her fiancé were overjoyed with the news, and she’s sharing her incredible journey on TikTok, as she gets ready to welcome her bundles of joy.
Under the name Taming Triplets, she shared the size of her tummy as she made it to 28 weeks.
But at just five feet tall, she said it’s quite a stretch carrying three babies.
The mum-to-be, who confirmed this is her first pregnancy, said: “Every week I get bigger I think 'I can’t stretch anymore…' and then I do!!! Women are warriors.
“I don’t know how I’m doing this.”
She explained the placement of each triplet, saying ‘C’ was ‘popping out’ under her ribs, while ‘B’ was nestled at the front near her belly button, but ‘A’ was tucked away inside.
She said: “A is really underneath tucked back in there, when she kicks, my bladder. There’s nowhere for her to go.
“They’re all so squished in I’m only five feet tall. It’s not very comfy, no stretch marks yet.
“But I’m so happy we got to 28 weeks. I can’t wait to see how much more they’re going to grow.
“All my organs are squished.”
But she explained as well as being uncomfy there’s added risk due to her height, saying: “There’s some extra risks being smaller and carrying three babies, but we’re going for the home run.
“Only three more weeks.It’s not the easiest thing I’ve done.”
Previously explaining how she fell pregnant with the triplets, she said: “Normally your body is supposed to switch up your hormones and stop you from ovulating again once you're already pregnant. In my circumstance it did not.
“About 10 per cent of women can ovulate twice a month. Only I think .3 per cent get pregnant a second time.
“So technically our babies do have different due dates, luckily they're close enough that they will be born the same day, so they will all still be considered triplets.
“So with superfetation the eggs came at different dates, and so they have different gestational ages.
“Ours are only a few weeks apart but sometimes they can be months apart, and those people actually have to have different due dates.”
The mum-to-be explained the doctors ruled out it being a third triplet who was malnourished.
“The first two babies are ten and 11 days older than our third baby, so that’s how we knew straight away it was a second pregnancy,” she said.
“To confirm it was superfetation and not just twin absorption or a malnourished baby the doctors are doing ultrasounds every two weeks.
“And sure enough it’s been hitting every single milestone, growing at a healthy rate, just ten to 11 days behind the first two babies we have.”
Plus this woman, 28, fell pregnant with triplets despite taking the Pill every day – and will raise them as a single mum.
