Preggy with Triplets

I knew I was not going to be a mother for I had difficulty conceiving because of endometriosis. It took me years, with the help of Dr. Roger Mendiola, before having twins Julia and Rafael in 2002. The twins are nicknamed Ia and El. I took the last two letters from their names.

Then Juan was born three years after. He was named Juan from the English version of his dad's name, John. Juan is nicknamed Juancho or One (because he's only one unlike his Ate and Kuya.

Now at 40, I am on the way with triplets!

What would I name them then? If mix gender, I'll call them Kwatro, Singko, Sais.

If all girls, they'll be Juana, Juliana, Juanita.

If all boys, they will be called Rafaello, Raffy, Ralf

Conceiving triplets played in my mind for so long. Kakayanin ko pa bang mag-alaga? Magpuyat? Maghabol sa tatlong malilikot na chikiting? Will I be able to breastfeed triplets equally? These are some of the questions that I used to ask myself. 

Mahirap din siguro at my age to conceive triplets, buti na lang April Fools Day lang ngayon. Happy April Fools Day!

If I will be blessed with triplets, of course they will be a welcome addition to the Mendiolables.

  3. How are these comments posted a year before the actual post. My wife's ultra sound is identical to this one, how is that possible. Who's responsible for the ultra sound post


Thank you for the joyful comments!
