But Genevieve, Constance and Avangeline arrived from one egg at 200million to one odds.
Mum-of-four Rosie, of Pylle, Somerset, said: “Midwives always say that each pregnancy is different but there was something very different about this pregnancy – I was so exhausted that by mid-afternoon each day that I needed to lie down for a rest.
“Also having barely showed until five months with my first pregnancy I felt my bump start to appear within weeks.
“Worryingly I started to get some pain and discomfort on my right side and was sent for an early scan at nine weeks.
“The sonographer kept the screen tilted away from view and she let out a concerning groan as she leant into the screen to take a closer look.
“Fearing that something was very seriously wrong, I certainly did not expect the sonographer to turn round and announce that ‘its not one baby, it’s three!’”
Rosie added: “It has been a rollercoaster of a journey so far.
