A Mum’s Got ᴛʀɪᴘʟᴇᴛs – Twins Will Be A Breeze
A West Virginia mother-of-four who gave birth to ᴛʀɪᴘʟᴇᴛs last year has found out she is now pregnant with twins.
Megan Haggerty naturally conceived ᴛʀɪᴘʟᴇᴛs (sons, Clyde, Matthew and Thomas) and her two-year-old daughter with finance Clyde Bodge, who also has three children from a ᴘʀᴇᴠɪᴏᴜs ᴍᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇ — ɢɪʀʟs aged six, eight, and 10.
The 30-year-old mom, who has never used Fᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ ᴅʀᴜɢs, told Yahoo Parenting that she ‘didn’t really expect to be getting that kind of news again. But rather than feeling nervous about the twins’ arrival. Ms Haggerty is excited. ‘I’ve got ᴛʀɪᴘʟᴇᴛs, twins will be a breeze!’, she said.
Ms Haggerty’s ᴛʀɪᴘʟᴇᴛs are fraternal – and the possibility of ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠɪɴɢ them naturally is about one in 8,000. But multiples are common in both Ms Haggerty and Mr Bodge’s families.n Her grandmother had twins, and her mother’s cousin had ᴛʀɪᴘʟᴇᴛs. Meanwhile Mr Bodge’s great-grandmother had quadruplets, and several sets of twins have also been born on his side.
Ms Haggerty, who works full-time, said it took a while to get the hang of looking after three children at once, but is feeling more prepared for the twins.
‘The ᴛʀɪᴘʟᴇᴛs were really difficult at first because you only have two hands and two legs, and they all seemed to want to be fed at the same time,’ she said.
And stay-at-home dad Mr Bodge agrees.
‘Honestly at first it was very stressful, but my day is so fluid now, I’ve got them on a great schedule. I know it seems scary to most people, he said, but I’m really looking forward to it.’ he ᴇxᴘʟᴀɪɴᴇᴅ.
