The human body is an incredible thing, and a 36-year-old mother has set out to remind us that pregnancy is one of the greatest examples.
Maria is a resident of Copenhagen, Denmark. She and her husband, Anders, were already parents of a child, and now the family has grown with another boy and two girls. Like any other mother, she documented the entire process of her pregnancy by taking photos of the changes her body underwent and sharing them on her Instagram, @tripletsofcopenhagen.
Perhaps for many women, it is surprising to see the dimension they oncehad. But for her, it was one of the best stages of her life. Thanks to her photos, Maria managed to have more than 62 thousand followers, and now she only hopes to recover and adapt to the routine of being a mother of triplets in order to document the growth of her little ones.
Maria and Anders met on Tinder over 4 years ago. After dating for a few years, they had their first child and then got married. Maria became pregnant without the help of insemination, which makes her case even stranger. She shared the timeline of the growth of her belly. In the last few weeks, her belly was huge and impressive.
In one recent post, the 36-year-old shared a week-by-week photo alongside the caption: “What a journey this has been! From the huge sʜᴏᴄᴋ of learning there were three, to people’s reactions, the numerous scans and checks and all the preparations and planning for this life-changing event. Nothing like the ordinary.”
Some had asked her if she was at ʀɪsᴋ of falling because of the weight. But she did her daily routine as normal. In her final weeks, she slept, watched TV shows, and kept herself entertained by lying down. For months, she has been preparing for the arrival of her children. The family even changed their car for a van in which they will all travel comfortably.
Maria gave birth on September 13 to two boys, Filip and Iben, and a girl, Agnes. The new members of the family were born healthy and very large.
Sharing these photos, Maria said, “I’m glad we took these pictures, because this collage really shows the massive growth. 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.”
