According to research, in the past the frequency of triplet pregnancies was 1 in 8,000, which seems to have changed in the last two decades. Assisted reproduction methods and I.V.F programs have contributed to a significant increase in multiple pregnancies, more specifically, by approximately 50% in twins and 40% in triplets.
The mother of four and creator of the Instagram account @identical_triplet_mama also ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠᴇᴅ her triplet babies through I.V.F. Already having an older daughter, Violet, at 40 she became a mother for the second time, giving birth to her three sons, Rocco, Prince and Otis.
The three boys were born in May 2020 and look like three drops of water. The posts of the 40-year-old mother have already started during her pregnancy. Through them, she described how she experienced a triplet pregnancy and the sʏᴍᴘᴛᴏᴍs she herself had.
“My feet were huge, so swollen that every time I had to go out I wore my trainers with the laces too loose, no matter what I was wearing.
I had a lot of ʜᴇᴀᴅᴀᴄʜᴇs and the worst was this intense thirst that wouldn’t go away no matter how many glasses of water I drank. My belly was huge, I wasn’t comfortable at all and I used pillows to prop it up every time I lay down.”
The three boys turned two last month and since their birth until now, the 40-year-old has uploaded hundreds of pictures of them. Sometimes he photographs them alone and sometimes with their big sister.
In most of the photos, the little boys are dressed to match and that’s what makes their mom’s posts even more delightful. The boys wear the same bodysuits and custom clothes with their names.
The account has over 74,000 so far and the number is constantly increasing. See even more photos of the cute triplets in the gallery below.
