Woman pregnant with triplets shares struggles of huge bump that grew ‘straight out’

A woman who was pregnant with triplets went viral online after she documented the growth of her insanely large baby bump – which turned purple and was covered in bruises in the weeks leading up to the birth of her three babies.

Michella Meier-Morsi, from Copenhagen, Denmark, documented her journey on Instagram by sharing images of her bump, which began growing ‘straight out’ rather than ‘up and down’.

Michella welcomed her triplets Charles, Theodore and Gabriel on January 15 via cesarean section. She was just over 35 weeks pregnant.

Michella is also mum to two daughters with her husband, Mark.

Three days before she gave birth, Michella shared her fears with her followers, saying that she did not ‘feel ready’ for the triplets.

‘I seriously do not feel ready for three babies,’ she wrote.

‘I naively thought that I would get ready at some point – that I would feel a joy that the pregnancy is coming to an end and that we should finally meet our trio.⁣

‘But if it were not for the extreme pain, the triplets would have to stay in the stomach for a month or three more. It all just feels so overwhelming.’

Michella said she wanted to ‘curl up in a corner and sob over how unimaginable it all seemed.’

The mum welcomed her three sons and said the birth experience was one of the ‘wildest 36 hours’ of her life.

‘I’m in grotesque pain,’ she wrote in the aftermath. ‘And right now I can not see myself out of that nightmare.

‘Fortunately, it helps when lying with three adorable boys on your chest. Yep, I’ve already had the pleasure of having them all up at once – and it was completely magical.’

Despite the trauma, Michella said it was ‘worth it’ and that her heart was ‘bursting with happiness and love.’

‘There is emptiness in my stomach, but my heart and my arms have never been so full of love and happiness,’ she gushed.

‘The boys are absolutely amazing! ⁣That’s how easy it can be summed up. They are mild and mega cool and we are completely in love. It’s hardly any surprise that we are in the most wonderful baby bubble.’

In the days following, Michella shared on Instagram that while her stomach was significantly smaller, she was struggling with her postpartum body.
