What are the Odds of a Trifecta?

in #photography2 years ago (edited)



She is so loved. Before she even came into this world. This is how she began life, almost two years ago. Seems like a lifetime ago.

This was a candid shot of triplet number three within her first few hours of life. Welcome to the world, little one. The smallest, most delicate.

They were the first set of multiples in our family for a few years, seven to be exact. We are a family of many multiples. But triplets, concieved the good old fashioned way? The first.

She may be one of three, but, she is an individual. She may look like them, but she stands out in a crowd.

The odds of conceiving triplets naturally is about 1 in 8,000 births for fraternal, 1 in 62,500 for identical - give or take a couple. It has been said that there has been a 400% increase in triplets over the last 20 years.

She is almost two now, and is one of the branches that make up my tree of life. The one that has some breaks and healing, just like life does. Where a branch is lost, another grows, making it strong once again. Scars and all, we are survivors.

Just like her. Strong and resiliant, growing out of her fragile beginning.


Flowers. There must always be flowers to color my world. I dedicate this picture to @Kalemandra, who colors my world every single day!

Oh, your loveliness carries soft delicate feelings - like a warm whisper passing swiftly by. I am not sure how any one person can wiggle their way in to my heart in such a profound way. May life always be good to you. I love you, my little angel from heaven.

And just like that, this post is done. Just so you know, although much sun and shine was used up today, I can guarantee that there is still a little left in my heart. Have a most fabulous day!

Don't forget to share your love. There is nothing sweeter or more well recieved than to hear those words. I love you. I do.💖

they set my aunts house on fire
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?

i’ve been praying,
and these are what my prayers look like;
dear god
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.

later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered,
"where does it hurt?"
it answered,

"everywhere"
"everywhere"
"everywhere"

Greetings dear Denise,

Coming to your site is like dropping by a friend's for a cuppa.

Lovely news, poetry and photographs......enjoyed!

So very happy for this family....that all three are doing well....very good news!

Triplets....just amazing! ...and yes...each with very different souls....no cookie cutters when it comes to souls....what an illustration of this.

Wishing you a lovely Sonday! again! ^__^

Cheers!

Aww cuteness overload! That is great to know she is doing well. Ben was very sick as a baby. A failure to thrive. Now look at him lol. I bet she will do great!

She is doing great and she keeps up easily with the other two. I am so proud of her! Although she had a rough start, and faltered her first year, all of that is behind her.

Hard to believe Ben was a failure to thrive! :)

Thanks for stopping by and saying hello, leaving your words behind. Have a great night!

Howdy. Amazing how many multiples of yout's you have in your family. I loved your analogy to the tree and it's workings. Fascinating stuff, this thing called life. Do they look exactly alike? The three? Thanks for showing us an interesting part of your life. Hope all is well in your world, and Cheers on a Monday

I have twins - a boy and a girl, 17 now, and you are completely right, they are completely individuals, although they have so much in common.
Thank you for your lovely words - the smallest will become the greatest one day. Just take care of her, have a great Sunday Denise.

Hey @dswigle, here is a bit BEER for you. Enjoy it!

Thank you so much! Twins! How cool! These are fraternal also. So they look identical, but, are not. They remain individual in so many ways but are thick as thieves. :) They do have much in common.

I thank you for your always kind and thoughtful comments. As this is not your native tongue, I must add that you are a very eloquent writer in English. Bravo. Not always a kind language in terms of the written word.

Thank you again and have a most beautiful Sunday evening.

I think, your comment has taken the longer path to me, because here it's already Tuesday evening 😉

You are much welcome, Denise. Yes, my daughter and my son, they are the same and yet so different, and although they argue a lot, they hold together and they can rely on the other.

Because English is not my native language I have to think more, what and how I am writing, and I must admit, that I have to use the Google translation service sometimes to translate words I don't know ;)

Thank you so much for the !tip - I can give you a !BEER - have a great Monday 🙂

I think these triplets will thrive, and especially this little girl. She's proven she's a fighter who isn't going to give up easily! God bless all 3 of them!

Thank you so much! I believe you are right! She is a little scrapper and she didn't give up then, so she sure won't give up now!

God is good and has blessed my family richly! Have a most wonderful day!

Are you the same bot that like haiku? I think I have already seen you!

For a triplet, she was actually quite big, although yes!! I think she was a tiny little miracle. Aren't they all? Life itself is an amazing act that is hard to follow.

Thank you so much for the comment and the constant support. It is appreciated more than I can convey to you.

Ohh yes of course thats a good point, and yes every new baby is indeed a miracle, as is life in general even with all its twists and turns

Interesting topic ... my granddaughter will be born in two weeks!

I am sure that you and your wife are very excited by now! Two weeks means they can come at any time! Are you ready to be a grandfather?

I will bet you were born ready!

Much luck to the parent-to-be! Having a baby is a life-changing experience! Have a great night, Dan @bluemoon

Omg what a little treasure! My grandson spent his first months in special care after being born immature and tiny. Life is the most delicate things must never take for granted. Thanks for sharing this beautiful post . Love to you all xx

I have never taken for granted the gift of life. I can honestly say that as one of my brothers was born blue from lack of oxygen. It was scary and he was the last child my mother had. Although, to be fair, he was #9. :)

Life is the most delicate of things. Well chosen words, for sure.

She is thriving and doing well, I am happy to report. Thank you for stopping by and for leaving your love. 💖 I can feel it from here.

That is a lot higher than I expected. I don’t ever recall growing up with a family near me that had triples. There were two families on the block with twins though.

It was a lot higher than I thought too! But, just so you know, that figure has mysteriously gone up 400% in the last 20 years. No wonder we thought it was higher, it used to be. :)

My neighbor had two sets of twins. Yikes. I wouldn't have another baby if that happened to me... and yet she did. Ha! Thanks for stopping by and saying hello @Enjar! It is always good to see you and your always thoughtful comments.

Have a great night!

Oh my, how precious @dswigle!!!! Such a tiny little thing, I do hope she is healthy and well now. How was mama? Wow, triplets I can't imagine. Please do tell me more about her! One of three? Brothers? Sisters? Such a blessing, a breath of fresh air, our future!

She is actually the third in a set of two girls and a boy, the boy being the oldest. Although she struggled with oxygen levels in the beginning, and was born at 38 weeks, she now doesn't seem to have any ill affects. Yay! She also has an older sister who was 2 at the time of their birth.

They were quite unexpected, but, are a true blessing! 💖

Thank you so much, you are always such a positive person on the Steemisphere! xo

Looks like she needed some extra care at birth in addition to all the love I'm sure she received. This is why we have modern medicine, to help us continue to appreciate life.

The modern medicine is why she is still here, and very healthy! Without it, honestly, I am not sure she would have been here.

We take it all for granted some days. Shame on us.

Thank you so much for the time you give to read and comment on so many peoples posts. I know I truly appreciate it! Have a great weekend, Victor!

Exactly right! That was the reason for my post last week. It is easy to sit back and hate on Big Pharma until you need it lol.

I don't hate on them. I dislike their abuse and greed. Other than that, it is a love-love relationship. ;)

I'm glad to know she is doing so well now. The photo is beautiful but tugged at my heart.

My mom was a twin, (her twin was stillborn). As far as I know we don't have any others. Although, I have teased my daughter that it skips a generation. lol

Multiples pretty much run rampant in my family. I always thought that of all the things our family could have, multiples was a blessing and a curse. Every time somebody in the family got pregnant they would sit and wait to make sure that it was a Singleton. My grandmother was a twin and she had a set of twins where one was stillborn. I think that was , I hate to use the word common, but seeing a lot more than you see today. Better Health, better nutrition, better Medical Care. How fortunate she was born into this Century because she would never have lived in the last one. And saying all of that, to date they are happy, healthy and thriving well in this world. Thank you so much for stopping by and say hello and Terese leaving your kind and generous words.

She is Marianne! @mariannewest

I am amazed by her sheer will in the beginning, but, now I am so spoiled with seeing her equal to her siblings in all ways. I will always remain impressed with her as a human being, but, know that God has His hand in all of this.

Thank you so much for the sweet comment, Marianne! I hope all is well with you!

I am glad to hear that she has caught up with her siblings. Babies are amazing and resilient and we do live in a time where we have tools to help babies that are born early.

Thank God, right? He has been good to those babies! Each one of them was over 4 1/2 pounds and born at 38 weeks.

How lucky was that?

Wow! Triplets?!? Amazing! I haven't seen triplets in person. 🤔

The picture brought back the tender memories of our little one. He is probably smaller than your precious one when he was born. Hehe. But he is now a healthy four-year old.

And yes, I agree that each person is a unique individual. There may be so much similarities between twins and triplets but there are traits that would always be peculiar to each one. And that's the miracle of life! A very rare gift that we should never take for granted.

Take care of the three precious ones. I know, their very existence sends endless ripples of warmth to your heart. 💕💕💕

You are so right! And there isn't a day that doesn't go by that our family doesn't know how fortunate and how blessed we all are.

In my eyes, every baby born on this Earth has a gift. While the reasons are far and wide for their existence every single one of them is a miracle of life. I think that babies are never a mistake and they bring true love into your heart.

I believe that your little boy is so fortunate to have a mother that loves him to the Moon and back. you just can't buy that!

Love to you!! 💖

Good day @dswigle, what a heart warming post, you write beautifully. Those little ones must be so beautiful, praise the Lord, they were able to thrive, triplets can be tough, high risk, as I am sure you know coming from the family of multiples.
Thanks for sharing, have a great day!

Triplets are tough and high risk, to be sure. It was a natural phenomenon and no fertility drugs for used oh, so I have to believe it was God's will. They are doing well and thriving and thank you so much for all your kindness.

I wish you a most wonderful day!

!tip

It's truly a miracle that all 3 are thriving. My sister and niece are nurses in the neo-natal intensive care units, 2 different hospitals, and I am always hearing about preemies. Multiple births very often produce tiny little babies who have to fight to stay alive. Your story has a wonderful finish, all 3 are alive, well and growing strong.
Thanks for sharing...and thanks soooo much for the !tip.

How lovely! I've never encountered anyone who had triplets the "natural" way! It must be hard work for the parents, having three little ones the same age! And a lot of fun for the triplets themselves :)

Now that's a story, a beginning of a life. One infinity.
