Mom Gives Birth One, Two, Three To One In A Million Triplets
When it comes to pregnancy, Teri Nobles has had quite a run. First she gave birth to her son, Logan, who’s 10. Then three years ago she carried twins, Marcel and Victor. Now the Joliet woman has topped herself by welcoming a set of triplet boys: Vincent, Santino and Andres.. Her doctors call the sequence a “one-in-a-million occurrence.”
If a Joliet mom gets pregnant again, she should plan on having quadruplets. That’s if the pattern holds up. She remembered when doctors told her, last year, that she was pregnant with triplets.
“I wanted to ꜰᴀɪɴᴛ. I was nervous. I got really anxious,” Nobles said.
Just a few years ago, Nobles and Mario Aguirre, were preparing for twins. One of the twin boys ᴅɪᴇᴅ during childbirth. Dr. Vibhaben Thaker is a neonatologist at Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove. She said she’s never had a patient who has given birth to one child, then twins, followed by triplets.
Nobles did not undergo any fertility treatments. The couple doesn’t have a family history of twins. “It is unique, and a blessing, and as we mentioned we are short one. We still feel it is not enough,” Aguirre said.
But Nobles said don’t count on them having more children. The couple also has three children from previous relationships.
“If we were to get pregnant again there would be probably four, with my luck. It would be a blessing, don’t get me wrong, but I think we cut it off after the three,” Nobles said.
The parents thanked the staff at Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital, their family and their friends for their help and support – including helping them amass “a whole closet full of diapers.”
Dr. Thaker says she didn’t have any advice for what Teri called their “big, fun family. Honestly, we need to learn from them, They are great parents, and very caring. They have great children and a happy family.”
