Being pregnant is one of the most amazing blessings that a woman have ever experienced in her life. Pregnancy may not be easy for anyone. The whole nine months might be a grueling experience for most, but knowing that you are carrying and growing a baby inside you is simply amazing. If you’ve ever had a child before, you know that there are so many pregnancy effects that you should deal with, physically and emotionally.
Within the nine months of pregnancy, expecting moms must manage a few changes and how their body reacts to it. Some of them may include morning sickness, increased pee, and swollen feet, and so on. While a woman of normal weight will ordinarily gain up between 25 to 35 pounds during pregnancy, if you are having more than one, then expect the number on the scale to be more.
The 36-year-old Maria Copenhagen from Denmark learned that she will have triplets on her second pregnancy. She was thrilled and she doesn’t want to miss every single moment of it. She decided to document her pregnancy journey through Instagram. She was sharing weekly updates about the baby and her baby bump, posting pictures of her, her 40 years old husband Anders, and also with their first born, Mikael.
Since she started this, she has gained over 171,000 followers on Instagram and she began sharing to her followers her personal life including her whirlwind romance with Anders whom she met on Tinder, one of the most popular dating app. She wrote, “We met on Tinder! I had just arrived in Copenhagen (Denmark) to work at the TV show Masterchef for 4 months when we «got a match», and 6 days later we had our first date. I moved in with him 6 months later.” Two years after, they welcomed Mikael into this world.
Maria also shared that the triplets were naturally conceived. They were expecting to add just one more child to their small family so it was a shock to both of them when they learned that they are going to have not one but three additional bundles of joy! Being pregnant with triplets who are naturally conceived is a one in every 9,000 chance!
On one of her posts, she said, “What a journey this has been! From the huge shock of learning, there were three, to people’s reactions, the numerous scannings/checks, and all the preparations and planning for this life-changing event. Nothing like the ordinary.” She shared that she was glad that they took these pictures because this collage simply shows how massive her baby bump has grown over time! She said that it was strange to have ended up with such a huge belly and even stranger to think that it can carry these babies without falling down.
On September 13, 35-weeks pregnant Maria gave birth to her three wonderful babies. She named them Iben at 4.7 lbs, Agnes at 4.5lbs, and Filip at 5.14 lbs. Maria was glad that everything went really well. Now the mother of four, together with the rest of their family are so happy and relieved that she and all the babies are doing good after everything that they have been through.
