Triplets share their unusual birth story as they celebrate their birthday
A set of triplets have shared their unusual birth story as they marked another birthday.
The Nigerian sisters named Toni, Tomisin, and Tomiwa said their mother had no idea she was expecting triplets. Scans showed she was only expecting one baby but her tummy kept growing larger than usual.
In the fifth month, it was discovered that she was expectng twins and the expectant mother shopped for twin babies.
It wasn't until the day of delivery that it was discovered that there was a third. In fact, it was when the doctors were about stitching their mother up after a Cesarean section that they felt movement. They then realized there was a third baby in there and had to open her up again.
Tomiwa took to Twiter to write:
A must read.????
Let me tell you a quick story about our birth.I’m sure you guys won’t expect this lmao
So according to my mum,when she was pregnant she was expecting just one child,just a child.But later on,she started getting bigger than usual then she got worried and decided to go to the hospital for a scan but it kept on showing that she was pregnant with just a child.She would go to the hospital twice almost every week because she was so concerned about the size of the pregnancy since she was having just a child.
So About five months later(Ikr,that’s a long time)she went back to the hospital and they finally told her she was pregnant with twins,she was so surprised and at the same time relieved that the babies were fine.
So,she started buying two pairs of everything,same shoes,same clothes and all.
Then when she was due which was eight month three days(multiple births don’t actually stay till the usual nine months,most of them)she went to the hospital and then the doctor told her she was going to deliver her babies(twins)through cs.
After some hours they finally got the twins out(Tomisin and Tomiwa)but according to my mum when the doctor was about closing up they noticed a movement and they were concerned,thinking something went wrong they had to undo the stitches,and then it turned out that they found another baby(Toni)What would you do if you found out you were originally meant to give birth to twins but then it turned out you gave birth to triplets?lmao
When my mum regained consciousness,the doctor told the nurses to bring in the triplets,my mum thought she heard wrong so she asked “what triplets ?”then they explained the whole thing to her and she was filled with joy and was having mixed emotions.Who wouldn’t?
So there wasn’t any clothe for Toni(the last child)they quickly had to get a substitute till they went to buy her stuff,ours actually because we had to wear the same thing.
So why Toni and I look more alike is because we shared the same placenta and Tomisin had hers.
Soooo @toni.xox_ I expect that you should respect me because I came out 10 minutes before you and it’s not a joke dear?
But tbh I wouldn’t know how I would’ve survived without you?
