Identical triplets were born to a first-time mother who outperformed the odds of 1 in 200 million. Allana Allard, 29, and her husband Tim, 31, were ecstatic to find they were expecting their first child in October 2019. Allana Allard claimed that after numerous home pregnancy tests came back positive, she and her husband attempted to conceive a child within two weeks. When Allana Allafd was six weeks along with the pregnancy, the couple enthusiastically went for an ultrasound.
But when told there were three tiny heartbeats coming through, they were rendered speechless.
Allana and Tim stated they couldn’t believe their family was set to grow by three in size from their very first pregnancy because neither side of their families had a history of multiple births.
We started trying for a baby in October, according to Allana, who was born in Falkirk, Scotland but migrated to Australia when she was 13 years old. At first, when we heard two heartbeats, we were informed that they were twins. However, after performing an internal ultrasound, we learned we were expecting triplets.
Jaxon, Zac, and Zavier, identical triplet boys, were then welcomed.
“After the shock subsided, we were simply so thrilled. Like all new parents, we were naturally a little afraid, but we were also incredibly happy.
According to some research, the probability of a woman giving birth to naturally identical triplets could be as low as 1 in 200 million, while the precise number is uncertain.
And if having triplets wasn’t stressful enough, the COVID-19 epidemic struck five months into Allana’s pregnancy, upending everything.
Allana went on to say that the COVID-19 travel ban forced her cherished 82-year-old grandmother, who had previously traveled frequently from Scotland to Australia, to postpone her journey to see her grandkids.
“No one in our family was able to see the triplets until we got home.”
The boys were born by C-Section at 33 weeks weighing 1.9kg, 2kg and 2.3kg. “We never thought they would be exactly the same, as the two share a sac and placenta, while the other has its own pouch. But strangely, my children are identical.”
