After having two lovely infants, Holly Bassler, 33, of Pennsylvania, wants to complete her family by having a third child. She was thrilled to be expecting her third child. But the true shock didn’t hit him until he found out that she was going to have three kids instead of just one or two. 3 little hearts were found beating in the mother’s belly in 2019 during an 8-week ultrasound. When she realized she was going to give birth to five children, she initially felt extremely terrified. But now than 2.5 years after the trio was born, Holly and her family are now more content than ever.
“Mike, my 32-year-old husband, is an electrician, and I wanted our three children to be born and raised in close proximity to one another. As no one in our family has a large family, we never anticipated having three kids at once. I went to the ultrasound by myself, so when they told me there were three membranes, I was really taken aback. Because everything was so tragic, I became alarmed. It was already difficult raising a one-year-old and a two-year-old, so I was concerned I wouldn’t be able to be the mom I wanted to be.” Holly said.
Judah, Jamie, and Jack, Holly’s three children, were delivered via cesarean section on May 10, 2020. The pregnant woman, who is also a proud mother of two young kids named Aaralyn and Jessie, continued: “The pregnancy was great. I rarely get sick, and I experience little pain. Amazingly, I don’t have any health issues, and everyone is developing normally. Because I’m still nursing Jessie and both of our infants are still sleeping in our bed, I worry occasionally. I was concerned about what would happen to the five children, but I had to stop and realize how incredible it is that my body can produce three children at once. It is both a miracle and a gift. Holly wishes she could be in multiple places at once because she has five kids.”
Our lives are very busy and chaotic. It’s hard, but I believe the good days are coming. Overstimulating and having to constantly pay attention to every child’s needs is the hardest part. Because they are still so small, they still need me for most things. I feel bad because I can’t be in more places at once. But I am glad that they are close in age, because they can accumulate experiences in life together. The trio also treated Aaralyn and Jessie well, being caring, helpful, sociable and friendly,” the mother said.
