No, they weren't triplets.
File this one into "news that sounds so painful it actually physically hurts to read." I'm pretty sure my future children will feel this story... that is if I decide to even have kids after learning about this as a possibility. I imagine reading this story for women is akin to a man watching another guy get hit in the balls. It's just like a lot of auxiliary pain.
But women, fear not, because it's a bit of a one in a million story -- and if those numbers still seem kind of high, you're absolutely right. Next time your partner calls you one in a million, just start yelling at them and don't explain why. That solves all my problems.
So if you're thinking to yourself, "could this ever happen to me?" the answer is yes. And I'll tell you exactly how. In every terrifying detail.
