Oh boy! Mother who gave birth to identical triplet sons is left with £500 worth of pink clothes after FIVE gender scan mix-ups

  • Gina and Craig, 34, from Frodsham, Cheshire, were elated with news of triplets
  • The couple were told two of their triplets were girls on five different occasions
  • Spent £500 on pink clothing to later find out she is pregnant with identical boys

A first time mum of triplet boys has been left with £500 worth of girly clothing after five gender scan mix-ups.

Gina Dewdney, 34, was elated when she told two of her triplets were girls on five occasions.

The dental therapist spent over £500 on pink clothing and accessories to later find out at the 24 scans she is pregnant with identical boys.

Gina and her husband Craig, 34, who live in Frodsham, Cheshire, decided to keep the clothing in case there was another mix-up and their boys were in fact girls at birth.

But in April this year, Gina gave birth to her miracle one in 200 million chance identical triplets called Jimmy, Jenson and Jaxson.

‘I had a feeling I was pregnant with twins at the start as I felt terrible,’ she explained.

‘I had migraines and experienced blind spots in vision along with pregnancy insomnia.

‘So when we saw two heads on our scan at 13 weeks, I wasn’t surprised but I was in total shock when there was a third.

‘I had scans every week as triplets is a high-risk pregnancy. At 16 weeks we were told they are identical twin girls and one boy.

‘I was excited to have the best of both worlds.

‘I purchased bags of girls clothes and accessories such as girly bibs and dummies.

‘We even started looking for girl names.’

Gina admits feeling ‘devastated’ when the 24-week scan revealed her girls were boys because she had bonded with ‘the girls’.

She also feared another mix up so decided to keep £500 worth of pink products.

But at 31 weeks and three days, Gina went into labour and welcomed her identical triplets into the world.

She said: ‘I totally understand why the sonographer got the gender wrong for weeks as the babies would never sit still.

The triplets spent 42 days in NICU before going home with their parents who had fortunately upsized their home from a flat to a five-bed property ahead of the pregnancy. Pictured, Jenson graduating from NICU

‘There would always be a leg or an arm in the way so it wasn’t easy for them to see each baby from all the angles.

‘Even Craig, who is a dentist, and I thought they looked like girls too which is why I decided to keep all the clothes – just in case.

‘The babies were born at the exact same time which is very unusual for triplets.’

The babies were delivered in one minute and 52 seconds – Jaxon weighed 2lbs, Jensen, 2lb 7oz and Jimmy 3lbs.

They also had to buy a bigger car to accommodate their bundles of joy.

Gina added: ‘We are beyond grateful for the staff who cared for our babies at the hospital because they wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for them.

‘We couldn’t thank them enough when we could finally take them home.

‘Now they are 26 weeks old and I couldn’t imagine having the girls now – it is so special having identical boys.

‘I find it amazing that they’ve got massively different personalities already.

‘Jimmy is the joker, Jenson is dramatic and a Jaxson is completely chilled and just sits and watches the other two.

‘Craig and I couldn’t imagine life without them now.

‘Our house is chaotic and there is always something to do – we get through 30 nappies a day and around 24 bottles.

‘They go through a tub of formula every 48 hours and our downstairs toilet is now a stock room for all their stuff.

‘They tag team who is awake so I have very little sleep but I wouldn’t have it any other way.’

Despite having her hands full, Gina is keeping the girls clothing as she wouldn’t ‘rule out’ trying for a girl in the future.

She said: ‘Some people may think I am crazy for considering another baby with triplets.

‘But I wouldn’t rule out trying for a girl in the future!’
