For every mother, being pregnant is a blessing and a source of joy. They will experience demanding and exhausting days as they transition from living alone to living with an angel in their tummy. especially large-bumped women. A woman who was expecting quadruplets adored my large bump, and now that I’ve given birth, I’m having trouble adjusting to life without it.
Hanna Castle released a video lately acknowledging that it’s taking her some time to be without a bump after chronicling her pregnancy on her TikTok channel. “The pregnancy for the quadruplets went entirely too quickly. No one talks about the change from being pregnant to not being pregnant. That’s HARD. She tagged the video. People thanking Hanna for enduring the pregnancy instantly flooded her comments section. One person wrote: “I will never understand how our bodies can bear 4+ babies. It’s incredible! It’s absurd to believe that you can bear four or more infants for a prolonged period of time. Another person added.
“A human’s body is magical. Women are literally amazing. go girl,” another comment read.
Others empathized with just how Hanna was feeling, with one writing: “The transition left me feeling empty like I had lost a part of me. YES. I don’t know if it’s because they went straight to the nicu- but I felt like my purpose completely disappeared,” Hanna replied.
“4!!?? My back can barely handle one! You’re amazing!!” someone else wrote.
Hanna gave birth to her four babies last October – Atlas, Magnolia, Morgan and Dominic.
While they all had stayed in the NICU due to being prema.ture, they are all now home – with Morgan the last to return to reunite with his siblings and his mum. If you are pregnant with triplets or more, the birth will need careful planning. The main ʀɪsᴋ with carrying multiples is that they will be born prema.turely. Your medical team will help you decide where and when your babies will be born. To plan the birth of triplets or more, your medical team will weigh the ʀɪsᴋs of premature birth against the ʀɪsᴋs to both you and your babies of continuing the pregnancy. Generally, the longer your babies can stay in your uterus, the better. But when you are pregnant with triplets or more, complications often develop that mean it’s better for you and your babies if they are born early.
A normal pregnancy lasts 40 weeks. The average length of a pregnancy for triplets is 32 weeks and for quadruplets 30 weeks. Continuing a pregnancy with triplets or more for longer than 36 weeks can be ʀɪsᴋʏ both for you and the babies, so it’s usually considered best to deliver them early. A c-section is usually considered safest when there are 3 or more babies. (Giving birth to triplets or more vaginally is very rare and not recommended because of the higher ʀɪsᴋ of labor complications and infant mo.rtalityᴄ). Since almost all triplets or more will be born prem.aturely, they will need special care – for example, in a neonatal intensive care unit. It is important that the birth is planned in a hospital that has all the facilities that both you and the babies will need.
