Triplet Mom Shares Her Realistic Post-Baby Belly With The World

The 36-year-old Maria from Copenhagen recently gave birth to triplets and shares a honest picture of what her post-baby belly looks like.

Maria and her husband Ander already had a son when they got the news their little family would expand with two more daughters and a son. Maria documented her entire pregnancy on her Instagram.

"Week to week with the triplets," she writes. "What a journey this has been! From the huge shock of learning there were three, to people’s reactions, the numerous scannings/checkups and all the preparations and planning for this lifechanging event. Nothing like the ordinary. 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!"

Maria recently gave birth to her healthy babies. She shared a picture of her body one week later.


Three weeks passed and Maria decided to upload another picture of her belly. She wasn't too happy about the way she looked, but decided to post the picture regardless. Maria: "Four weeks after the birth of my triplets. I still have a weird looking hanging belly, and I am a bit surprised it has not gotten smaller since my last picture three weeks ago. Kind of disappointing I must admit, and I am not too happy to share this picture. On the positive side the c-section scar doesn’t hurt anymore, and in the last two days I’ve almost felt like myself again! Except for this heavy sagging belly that is."

Can’t wait to try them on and see if they have any effect! â € â € #triplets #postpartum #impatient

Very brave of Maria to share her post-baby body with the world. Children are the most beautiful gift of God, sometimes however it is difficult to get used to your body after your pregnancy, especially if you've been pregnant of three kids all at once! Luckily this mom overcame her insecurities.
