This mother’s story is proof positive of the miracle of the human body.
In May 2018, Maria and her partner headed to the doctor’s for a prenatal ultrasound — and they were absolutely shocked to learn they’d naturally conceived triplets. There are only about 150 sets of triplets born in the UK each year.
The 36-year-old wife and mother from Denmark started documenting her amazing journey on Instagram and now has more than 40,000 readers following along.
Having triplets is a rarity in itself, but people are mostly stunned when they see how Maria’s belly has grown. “It’s strange to have ended up with such a big belly and it’s even stranger that it can stand out like that without falling down!” she wrote on Instagram.
Maria has also been open and honest about the physical ramifications of carrying triplets — like severe Brackston Hicks contractions, sudden attacks of dizziness and nausea, and painful skin rashes and belly sores.
Her baby bump was massive and protruding… almost “alien” like!
