"The human body is made to carry just one baby and I am experiencing threefold all the pregnancy symptoms that a woman goes through." Sarah Duterte said.
Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte on Friday announced that she was seven weeks pregnant and it's a triplet.
Mayor Sara said she will often less be seen in public places because her Doctor advised her it's delicate.
"On this happy note, I would also like to share with you the news that I am pregnant and cannot join you in merrymaking activities," Sara Duterte said.
She said it was hard to have a multifetal pregnancy but she's doing well.
"We are expecting triplets and they are doing well on their 7th week," she said.
"The human body is made to carry just one baby and I am experiencing threefold all the pregnancy symptoms that a woman goes through," Sarah Duterte added.
Mayor Sara said she will continue to work despite her condition and as long as the Doctor allow her to do her duty as a City Mayor.
"I will continue to work until I am allowed by the doctors to do so, however, I have been advised to avoid crowded places to lessen the chances of acquiring infections," Sara said.
"I maybe physically weak but rest assured that I am on top of the situation here in our city," she added.
Sara Duterte is married to lawyer Manases Carpio. They have two kids and it's her third pregnancy.
