Shock of Discovering Multiple Pregnancies

Farah recounted the moment of shock when the doctor confirmed multiple pregnancies.She shared, "When the doctor called I was 100 percent sure that we were going to be pregnant and she said, 'Listen, Farah, don't jump too high, I want you to be calm, you are pregnant but don't get your hopes up but it is multiple pregnancies."

She further shared, "At ten days she (the doctor) called me and she said that it's triplets, and I said, 'Haan, I just knew it doc'. Of course we were too excited and the doctor gave us a reality check and said that we'd have to reduce one because normally most twins start out as triplets. She said that you're going to be 43 when the children come and it's not good for you. Your stomach is great, your lining is fab but three children is a big risk and one child can be really small." Despite the advice to "reduce" one child due to her age and associated risks, Farah bravely chose to proceed with the triplets, embracing the challenge of delivering three bundles of joy.
