Mom pregnant with triplets shares photos of her amazing baby bump
36-year-old Maria, already mom to one two-year-old son, is expecting spontaneous triplets by scheduled c-section tomorrow. She’s been documenting her road to becoming an instant mother of four on her popular Instagram account Triplets of Copenhagen and now, the images of her incredible baby bump have gone viral.
I mean, how could they not?
She’s shared the progression as her little ones have grown and it’s honestly just amazing to see.
Maria manages to make 34 weeks pregnant with triplets look like a walk in the park — though any multiples mom knows it’s absolutely not.
In fact, right next to those beautiful bump photos, Maria gets very real in her captions about what life’s like while you’re carrying three humans in your belly. “I’m reaching my limits now, and counting the days until delivery,” she writes at the 33-week mark. “The babies are kicking hard and moving around all day and night, to great discomfort. And my belly feels so full and stretched; I literally have to lift it with my hands to be able to turn over in bed.”
As a woman who had to do that “bump lifting in order to turn over in bed” move while pregnant with just one babe, I can only imagine what it’s like with three. My hat’s off to her. Also? She looks absolutely stunning.
Regardless of how physically difficult this pregnancy has been, Maria and her husband Anders are fully prepared for their family to double in size overnight.
They were even gifted the cutest set of handmade outfits for their impending littles, two girls and one boy. These sweet sets make me want another baby or three. Almost.
But until there are three tiny people to wear the precious clothes she’s gathered, Maria is (maybe not so patiently) waiting to meet her triplets, passing the days listening to podcasts and resting up. She tells Scary Mommy she’s it feels “SO great” to know she’s only a day away from meeting her babies. “We’re really excited to finally meet them,” she says. “And I can’t wait to get rid of this heavy belly.”
We can only imagine.
Tomorrow is the big day, and we can’t wait to see her updating her Instagram with photos of those three babes outside of that gorgeous bump.
