Many mothers ғᴇᴀʀ giving birth to only one child, but when Bianca Robertson found out she was Pʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴛ with triplets, she was hoping to give birth to them all naturally.
Bianca said: “Of course, I was nervous. However, as an athlete who has stuᴅɪᴇᴅ movement and the human body, it was a fascinating journey that I was eager to embark on.”
Bianca discovered she was Pʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴛ with triplets at eight weeks after undergoing fertility therapy to ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠᴇ her second child. She said: “I was sᴜʀᴘʀɪsᴇd. My hands are raised to cover my lips. The worst concern I have is that the doctor will suggest I reduce them.”
Bianca assumed she was Pʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴛ with twins when a pregnancy test showed her hormone levels were higher one to two weeks before she stepped out of the bathroom. “I was really unwell for six weeks and had to hide from the doctor’s office. I had to take some ᴍᴇᴅɪᴄɪɴᴇ. It is completely devoured and incapacitated.”
Bianca informed her husBᴀɴd, Pete, of the results of the scan. “‘Oh my gosh,’ he exclaimed. Then I’d best get back to work.’ He couldn’t say anything for 48 hours. ‘I’m simply digesting stuff,’ he said.”
At 10 weeks, the doctor brought up the possibility of terminating the pregnancy. “They show me this amazing and ғʀɪɢʜᴛᴇɴing bar graph showing all the ʜᴀᴢᴀʀᴅs, such as three times the rate of physical and mental ᴅɪsᴀʙɪʟɪᴛʏ, and here are all the infants that ᴅɪᴇ – 140 out of every 1000. So they want me to terminate one of these right now because it could be one of 140, but what if it’s one of 860?” I said. According to the doctor, Bianca’s body will be affected by the pregnancy process. “I was told that I would need a full-time carer starting at 28 weeks, that I would be cared for at home and I felt like I was breaking down,” she said.
“Thankfully, none of that happened. I just knew that I would give in and sacrifice as much as I could for my children. This will be the most important physical achievement I can achieve. ”
Bianca was Cᴀʀʀʏing a 12-pound babies at 30 weeks and was so big that people would stop her on the street. She couldn’t breathe or move at 33 weeks. She was panting and She was placed on a ventilator, which did not help relieve her symptoms.The doctors felt that it was time to undergo an induction at that point. Three medical teams, as well as countless students and onlookers, crowded into the birthing room for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to observe triplets born ᴠᴀɢɪɴᴀʟʟʏ.
Bianca’s water broke and she was given an epidural to help her deal with the discomfort if a hand had to be inserted inside her. “I had a pretty good time working out,” she declares, even taking her husBᴀɴd and best friend, who is also her photographer, to the bar for a bit. She was ready to start pushing for her first child after eight hours of labor. After 20 minutes, the first baby arrived, followed by a 25-minute wait for the next two babies. Each child grows up in its own sac, with its placenta. Bianca decided not to find out the gender of the children, which she claims added to the general excitement in the room.
Hendrix, the third child, was a footling breach extraction. She is still nursing the infants, as well as supplementing with formula, at four months old. She usually breastfeeds two of them while nursing a third bottle.
Bianca posts about her life as a mother of four children under the age of three on Instagram and Facebook, and she receives a lot of comments from people who say they think of her when they’re having a bad day: “It can be meconium and discomfort when they wake up at the same time at night. I am not a strict and scheduled mom. I can usually handle two things at once and one will give me a break. “
