Having more kids after delivery of triplets
August 29, 2017 8:35am CST
I'm a mother of triplets (1st delivery). It hasn't been an easy task caring for three babies at the same, though have had several helps from nannies, friends and family members. The triplets are now over one year and three months and some are of the opinion that l should have more babies but personally I'm scared of even getting pregnant due to the pains & stress of the previous pregnancy & some are even scaring me more that l might even give birth to more multiples. What's your opinion and what will you do if you are in my position.

Only you know what you have been through to give birth and raise these children. And remember, your body went through a lot carrying triplets. Don't ever let other's opinion affect your judgment. You decide for yourself whether you want to have another baby and whether your body can handle it. I know if I had triplets, I wouldn't have anymore children. I had 2 single pregnancies and my body is already wearing down. Kudos to you by the way, not an easy task raising triplets.

Having a child is a very personal decision. You can't ask someone else to make it for you. You could end up hating each other. Discuss it with your husband. Decide if you can afford more kids or even take care of more. Put the children's welfare first and then fit the other things in to make a decision.
First of all congratulations to you, babies are blessings, i want to have twins actually ?? If i were in your shoes depending on my finances that first 3 kids are enough. But if i am financially capable i can give another shot. And if getting pregnant again stresses me or the pain of giving birth i thin i'm good with three ??

I feel you are so lucky to have given birth to triplets. I get so excited when I learn that someone somewhere delivered twins, triplets or even more babies at the same moment. If I was in your place, I wouldn't get pregnant again until the children get at around 4 to 5 years old and I can support them very well. After that long, you can then think about getting pregnant again. Good luck!
