It's triplets.

I went for my ultrasound today. Dr. Slackman immediately saw twins and Andrew and I were pleasantly surprised. He was still moving the camera around when I said, jokingly, "There's only the 2 there, right Dr. Slackman?" At that very moment, he turned the camera and said, "Actually, here's another one."

They are all different sizes, which is to be expected. One is huge, one is medium, and one is small. Dr. Slackman says that there's a 10% chance that the small one might not be viable and would be reabsorbed into my body.

I'm having another ultrasound a week from today. I'm still kind of shell-shocked.

Please pray for all of the babies, but especially the littlest one.

That is so awesome! If it is at all encouraging, if that small one hangs in there, I was told during my multiple pregnancy that the risks with triplets were not substantially higher than with twins.

I know three people with healthy triplets, none of them had any problems with their pregnancies except delivering a little early.

Also, Abigail was smaller than Daniel from day one and all the way to delivery. The doctor theorized she may have actually been conceived a day or two later than Daniel. That may be the case here too - the little one might not be less viable, but just younger!

(((Mrs. M and little ones)))

In my prayers, sweetie.

It's the drawback to fertility treatments - when the treatment connects, watch out.

That said, good luck to you and the future little ones. [Big Grin]

Congrats, Mrs. M. Mama has been wondering if you'd turn up with multiples. As usual, she was right.

Thanks, y'all. I'm still pretty freaked out. Honestly, I thought I'd handle it better than this. The idea of going from no children to three children (of the same age) in one day is pretty overwhelming. I don't even have a third girl's name that I like. Hopefully, we'll have a 2-1 combination, so it won't be a problem.

Belle, I never thought of that, but they may well have been conceived on different days - I was inseminated and we had an old-fashioned try.

Andrew says that this is G-d's way of compensating us for the baby we lost. I was pretty surprised because he never says things like that.

My best friend is already calling me The Incubator.

Let's say it runs a close second.

That's awesome!! And seriously, you're one person I can imagine handling it amazingly well. Mazeltov! [Kiss]

Congratulations and good luck. My coworker just had triplets after fertility treatments and I'm pretty sure she has a lot of resources up her sleeve. I'll see if she'll email me some of them to me.

The positive is that she made it to 32 weeks and has three healthy wonderful babies, but it was a rough road. She thinks having 3 is actually easier than having one because it forces you to be completely scheduled. *laugh*

*prayers and good thoughts*

Wow. Just wow!!! Congrats to you and Andrew! I would imagine being shell-shocked is quite normal. Take good care of yourself and those babies.

Oh, and I'll make certain not to complain about my pregnancy discomforts with you around. Your carrying 3 babies makes my 1 look pretty easy. [Wink]

I can't wait to know their names and genders, I'll start their hats soon, I found the cutest blue and pink yarns, they're cotton, very soft, and the color isn't super light, more a bright but young blue and pink.
