mom and triplets found dead (graphic)

This is so awful!

Mom, newborn triplets found dead on the floor


I do wonder, though, how you can be full-term with triplets and have no one in your family aware you are even pregnant?!


[I hope I'm not breaking the rules, I know this is a sensitive new story, but I read through the guidelines twice and hope this is okay to post]

It is fine to post, I added a graphic tag to the title, just to be on the safe side.

I read this earlier today. There has to be more to this story. First how realistic is it to go full term with triplets? Just sad.

How strange that everyone around thought she was pg but she kept denying it. I guess they thought she'd tell them when she was comfortable.

How do they know they were full term? I wonder if she'd had any prenatal care. It's so sad.

What a tragedy.

I can't imagine why she didn't tell people she was pregnant.

They can usually tell the approximate gestational age of a baby.

Very sad

That's terrible.

I wonder if she was in an abusive situation or had mental health issues or both?

Wow that is so sad. I wonder why she would have hid the pregnancies? I guess no one will ever know now. I am assuming she didn't have any prenatal care so maybe she didn't know it was triplets, I just don't understand if she already had kids and was 26 why she would hid a pregnancy from everyone.

Its quite possible, we have a mom on MDC that went to full term with triplets and had a planned home birth (which went fine) knowing she was carrying triplets. If she did it I'm sure there are other woman who have as well.

how sad and for the family to have such unanswered questions on top of it all must be so hard.
