36-year-old Scottish woman Mary McCandlish, from East Renfrewshire, has decided to give birth to another baby.
The woman was a mother of 4 children aged 6 to 16 and when she became pregnant, with her husband, she experienced great joy.
But this is what the ultrasound showed when the woman went to the hospital for an examination.
The pregnancy result surprised not only Mary, but also the doctors, because the woman was expecting triplets.
It was a very rare case and according to specialists, triplets, conceived naturally, can be born once in 160,000.
What worried the doctors was that the woman was of small stature, reaching only 155 centimeters.
With such a miniature figure, it was impossible to carry three fetuses up to nine months.
Mary gave birth to identical triplets by cesarean section in the seventh month of pregnancy. The boys Thai, Tyler and Tomas weighed 450 to 1300 grams.
Babies who spent Christmas in the incubator at a Glasgow hospital luckily survived and were quickly discharged from the infant unit.
And this year, the family managed to spend Christmas together. According to the happy parents, it was the best Christmas ever for their family.
“The bond between the triplets is great. They just have to look at each other and they burst out laughing. If one of them has a toy, the other two take it too,” says their mother.
And Mary doesn’t forget to give advice to mothers who have had multiple pregnancies.
“Having four children before certainly helped, but I think the key to coping with triplets is to be relaxed. If you are nervous, your little ones will not be calm,” explains the woman.
