This viral story of a triplet who had triplets of her own shows just how much new moms need support.
A year ago, Judit Minda found out during an ultrasound examination that she was not pregnant with one baby, nor with a pair of twins, but with triplets.
The news was a bit of a shock to Judit, “let’s face it, it would have been for anyone,” but at least it wasn’t so unfamiliar to her, since she herself is a member of the triplets. “Coming out of the doctor’s office, I felt a huge panic growing on me, and by the time we got to our car, I was crying like never before. It took us some time to process the information,” wrote the Norwegian Judit under the picture of the first ultrasound, which she shared on Instagram. The mother guessed that being pregnant with triplets would be incredibly difficult, as the physical strain would be greater and it would be much more ʀɪsᴋʏ than being pregnant with one baby.
Judit struggled with extreme ɴᴀᴜsᴇᴀ during the first 20 weeks, her heart rate was too high (ᴛᴀᴄʜʏᴄᴀʀᴅɪᴀ) during the pregnancy, the babies’ blood circulation slowed down from the 31st week, and the expectant mother also suffered from breathing difficulties during the entire pregnancy.
The triplets Filip, Henrik and Amelia were born on January 29. Until Judit regained her strength after the stressful birth, her sisters Sofia and Szilvia shared pictures from her Instagram account and helped her adapt to her new life situation. “The fact that the two of them were always by my side gave me strength in difficult situations, as I realized that I never had to deal with anything alone. No matter what life brings, these two wonderful people will always be with me,” she wrote on her Instagram.
Now she manages her profile herself again, through which she documents her life as a mother of triplets – who herself is a triplet – in order to give strength to other mothers. From pictures showing her real postpartum body to how difficult it is to breastfeed three children at once, she shares everything about her life with three babies.
One of her most special posts, however, is definitely the one where she and her sisters appear with the three babies: there are triplets holding triplets in their hands, which is a very rare and special sight.
Judit’s life is probably not easy, but her ability to share it with her followers is really impressive. How does it hold up to creasing? Well, presumably like any other mother, she is driven by pure love. “I sleep incredibly little,” added the mother, “and I can feel very bad because of the lack of sleep. But if I get a smile or a little laugh from my children, it can make me forget the sleepless night.”
