A first-time mum who is preparing to welcome triplets to the world in just three weeks has shown off her huge baby bump.
The US woman has been documenting her pregnancy on TikTok under the name Taming Triplets.
She is just five feet tall and claims not to have any stretch marks, despite her huge bump.
After falling pregnant with twins, the mum-to-be stunned left doctors gobsmacked by conceiving a third baby naturally ten days later.
Although there are added risks of a small woman carrying three babies to term, Taming Triplets is full of confidence that she and her fiancé will "score a homerun".
The expectant mother said: “Every week I get bigger I think 'I can’t stretch anymore…' and then I do!!! Women are warriors. I don’t know how I’m doing this.”
A typical pregnancy would allow the foetus to take up as much room in the womb as they like, however the triplets are vying for space.
Triplet C has reportedly marked their spot under her ribs, while B is nestled close to her belly button and A is further back and inside.
The woman continued: “A is really underneath tucked back in there, when she kicks, my bladder. There’s nowhere for her to go.
“They’re all so squished in I’m only five feet tall. It’s not very comfy, no stretch marks yet.
“But I’m so happy we got to 28 weeks. I can’t wait to see how much more they’re going to grow.
“All my organs are squished.”
She also said that Baby B was punching and kicking Baby A in the head at the 28 week check-up, which the expectant mum said "was pretty funny".
However, slightly more worryingly, she said that she is a couple of centimetres dilated – which is a potential sign of pre-term early labour.
Taming Triplets was advised by doctors to go home and keep a close eye on her contractions. They also said to return if she reaches three centimetres dilated.
The babies are currently due in under three weeks.
Taming Triplets said earlier this week: "In three weeks I'm going to be a first time mum to three babies.
"I'm scared, I'm anxious, I'm bless and thankful and happy, but scared, I'm scared."
"This hit me," she says, holding up a photo of three cars seats, "there's three car seats in my car, three cribs, I'm so outnumbered."
Taming Triplets also said there is added risk due to her height.
She continued: “There’s some extra risks being smaller and carrying three babies, but we’re going for the home run," she continued.
“Only three more weeks. It’s not the easiest thing I’ve done.”
Taming Triplets previously explained how she got pregnant twice at the same time.
“Normally your body is supposed to switch up your hormones and stop you from ovulating again once you're already pregnant," she said.
"In my circumstance it did not.
“About 10 per cent of women can ovulate twice a month. Only I think .3 per cent get pregnant a second time.
“So technically our babies do have different due dates, luckily they're close enough that they will be born the same day, so they will all still be considered triplets.
“So with superfetation the eggs came at different dates, and so they have different gestational ages.
“Ours are only a few weeks apart but sometimes they can be months apart, and those people actually have to have different due dates.”
She said doctors ruled out it being a third triplet who was malnourished.

“The first two babies are ten and 11 days older than our third baby, so that’s how we knew straight away it was a second pregnancy,” she said.
“To confirm it was superfetation and not just twin absorption or a malnourished baby the doctors are doing ultrasounds every two weeks.
“And sure enough it’s been hitting every single milestone, growing at a healthy rate, just ten to 11 days behind the first two babies we have.”
