Couple Expecting Rare Set of Identical Triplets

Couple Expecting Rare Set of Identical Triplets

A first-time mother in Indiana says she didn't know a lot about pregnancy, but she knew something was very different about hers early on. While getting an ultrasound to figure out the gender, Amanda and Chad Doss found out they were having triplets.

While it's not uncommon to have triplets anymore, it is very rare that they are identical and naturally conceived. 'Of the last probably 20 or so years, I've taken care of probably 200 sets of triplets. And out of those she's the third that I recall to have identical triplets,' said Dr. James Sumners at the St. Vincent Women's Hospital who is overseeing Amanda's pregnancy.

Though there can be complications when triplets are involved, all the babies are healthy. They also already have names: Baby A is Avery, Baby B is Bentley, and Baby C is Cassidy.

'I've wanted to be a mom since I was a kid, and now I'm blessed with three baby girls all at once,' Amanda says. 'It's going to be crazy!'

Congratulations Amanda & Chad! We too "accidentally" got pregnant with triplet girls, two are identical. They are 9 yrs old now. I love that you named them to their ultrasound letters like we did. Our girls are named Amanda, (Isa)Bella, & Catalina. We also had 2 boys that were 4 & 2 when the girls were born. We pray you will be as blessed as us with no fuss babies. Everytime I felt overwhelmed by it all, I remembered what a dear friend told me, "Clearly, God has lot's of faith in YOU!" You CAN do all things thru Him who strengthens you! Phil 4:13
