A mum pregnant with triplets has shared her incredible photos showing her baby bump journey over the past nine months.
Maria, from Copenhagen, Denmark, is already a mum to two-year-old Mikael and was shocked when she first found out she was expecting triplets.
Maria and husband Anders welcome two daughters and a son yesterday. The mum has posted a series of progression photos which quickly went viral.
“What a journey this has been,” she captioned the post which gained over 10,000 likes in just 24 hours.
“From the huge shock of learning there were three, to people’s reactions, the numerous scans/checks and all the preparations and planning for this life-changing event. Nothing [has been] like the ordinary.”
The 35-year-old has been blown away by the reaction to her photos and videos online.
“We never expected it would create such a buzz,” Maria tells Be.
“We’ve kind of gotten used to [the belly], so didn’t think it was that spectacular.
“I’ve gotten hundreds of comments from all around the world, with people sending their love. I’m trying to answer everyone’s nice messages, but I don’t think I can keep up with that when the babies are born. There are simply too many.”

Week to week with the triplets. ❤️ What a journey this has been! From the huge shock of learning there were three, to people’s reactions, the numerous scannings/checks and all the preparations and planning for this lifechanging event. Nothing like the ordinary. I’m glad we took these pictures, because this collage really shows the massive growth. It’s strange to have ended up with such a big belly and it’s even stranger that it can stand out like that without falling down! ???????? ⠀ #expectingtriplets #triplets #34weekspregnant #mybellyisbiggerthanyours
