I Had A Singleton, Then Twins, Then Triplets And I Document The Life Of My Unique Family (30 Pics)

My name is Lucia, and I have a unique story. My husband and I didn’t have plans for a big family. My first pregnancy, I had a baby boy. My second pregnancy, I had twin boys. Then, my surprise third pregnancy, I had triplet girls.

Life is busy but I just love my big family. This was never my life plan but now, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love being a Mum.

So first, we had our son, and we were so happy to have grown our family. Then, when we found out we were having twins, we were so shocked, we couldn’t stop laughing at the ultrasound office. Then, when we found out we were having triplets, we couldn’t speak. We just couldn’t comprehend it. It was so surreal. The triplets arrived at 35 weeks and life became super busy. Breastfeeding three babies was a big challenge, but we did it.

Getting all six kids ready to go out took a long time. Preparation was the key. Luckily, I had my mum living close to us and she was able to help out. Also, allowing extra time when we went out in public, as everyone wants to talk to you when they see triplets and twins. The questions were sometimes very personal and very repetitive, but you can’t blame people for being so interested. Once I had a stranger ask if they could kiss one of my baby triplets. What? No!!  Also, typical questions like “Are they identical?”, “How do you manage?”, “Are they natural?”, “Did you know you were having triplets?” These questions came left, right and center… all the time.

There was no me time in the early times, but I enjoyed going for a walk with the triplets in the pram, and boys on their bikes. It was my relaxation time. My triplet pram was awesome, but it was big… and no, it didn’t fit everywhere. I remember going to the zoo for the first time with all the kids, and we couldn’t fit through the gate. Luckily, we were able to use the staff delivery gate around the corner. You get used to such challenges.

Now, the kids are older, life is still busy, but different. I work part-time as a Photographer, and all the kids are at school. We still make time for family holidays which is our favorite thing to do. Spending time together exploring new places is what we look forward to the most.

brace yourself, apparently there was a russian peasant over two hundred years ago, that gave birth to the biggest amount of kids ever (sixty something maybe), and what bothers me most, none of those was a singleton, multiples all the way, just a fun fact :)
