This woman is gigantic. TRIPLETS born at home, her belly is so very very huge, just watch it. Warning- there's a part where one of the babies get sick at like 4 months and goes to the hospital, but she does live and she's fine- just keep watching for the happy ending.

This one is quadruplets, it's only a minute and a half long, but it is so sweet, it will make you laugh, so very sweet.

And if you're stuck on youtube, you might want to watch the Angus triplets, their mom has done some great slide shows reflecting the realities of life with triplets (imagine- they're all climbing on different pieces of furniture, all three removing things from different cupboards. One baby is turning the TV off and on while another is pulling all of hte books off of the shelf, it's hilarious.

Saw this in the new posts section and thought I'd let you know that the first lady is a sweet MDC mama (Kathryn), and here is Lily's thread.

Aren't multiple pregnancies amazing?!

I know- I saw that afterward. Y'know, when I first saw her in the birthing tub, I thought to myself, that lady is a saint. Then, I thought OMG, she didn't sign up for this, she signed up just to be a mom. I wonder if she is ever as impressed with herself as I am. I sometimes need to remind myself that I'm strong, too.

Oh my! Those are some big triplets!! I dont think I'd feel safe having them at home tho since triplets are low birth weight. BEAUTIFUL babies though & I love the last video!

I was surprised to see the first one born like ten hours before the second one was born. WHAt was that ten hours like? I mean, clearly she knew more were coming, did she worry about when?

I think I would definitely have done it at home, because I really think it would be an automatic C-section otherwise. I wonder how many weeks into preg she got. Kathryn- can you hear me?

And were they all born head first?

I would have done it at home definitely. Considering that my house is ten minutes from the hospital, just in case one of them had a medical need at birth. And if I made it to 34 weeks then I would be way less worried.
