  1. Ok. So, I'm in total shock right now but happy. I never expected this would happen in a million years. Not only did I ever think I would be pregnant after I had a tuble ligation at 21 but this takes the cake. So, girls here it goes. I went for My u/s today and we saw three heartbeats YES, I said THREE heartbeats, 3 babies. I'm pregnant with triples.( sorry I have to keep saying it to believe it) I am an identical twin myself so my doctor said it was bound to happen. All 3 babies look great, baby A's bpm was 95 measuring 6.5 weeks. Baby B' bpm 104 and 105 (identical twins)measuring about the same. My doctor said this isn’t an ideal pregnancy but all is going very well, Of course they prepare you for the worse. He said they split late so it’s possible they are sharing the same sack. sometimes this happenes and puts the babies at risk for twin to twin transfusion, meaning one twin could get more nutrition. When they get bigger they could get tangled in each others cord. etc, So many things could happen but again they want to prepare you a head of time. My RE said I was the first patient in his 35 years of practice to go through this. He said a few other doctors in his practice have seen this but it’s not common. So, hey I’m his first that’s cool to me, I like to leave my mark,lol. I am very excided but nervous and optimistic. Shock x 3 I had two eggs put in and one split, so I have identicals and a fraternal.

  2. well congratulations!!!!! let me tell you i am almost 24 weeks with triplets and there are still days when i think holy **** its three. i think it will sink in the day they are born.

  3. That's amazing news! Congrats -- wow!

    Yes, sure, there are increased risks, but so far so good! I had twins, but personally know two sets od triplets. Both sets were born in a good birth weight range (4-1/2 to 6lbs, I guess), healthy and beautiful! Just take a day at a time and set small milestones for yourself. Stay away from grumpy pesimists and their advice. Think positive and yes, keep repeating to yourself that you're having triplets! How many women have been able to say that?

    Multiples are amazing! Best of luck!

  4. Congratulations!
    Shock is always the first reaction along with the happiness and fear. Come over to the triplet mommies thread, we are either already triplet moms are future moms and we have lots of great info and really wonderful members.

  5. Congrats! I highly recommend reading Dr. Luke's book on expecting twins, triplets, or quads, and drinking as much water as you can possibly stand.

  6. Congratulations! Just wanted to wish you the best of luck.

  7. Congratulations, but due to the splitting of the embryo, and HOM, I strongly recommend you get in with a perinatologist straight away. Identicals that share a placenta, a sac, or both are at high risk for Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome, a dangerous and sudden disease that only affects identicals. You must be followed as soon as possible by a peri who is strong in this field.

    I had the exact same pregnancy as you, and sadly lost 2 of my 3 children. Please be very cautious, and get the best doctor you humanly can.

    i totally agree. i am 16 weeks preggie with quads and never would ahev though in a million years that that would be my reality. at first i started out with an ob and it was very clear that this dr had no idea how to deal with this sort of pregnancy. no one in the entire practice had ever taken care of or delivered a set of quads and i want NOT about to the the first. Now i am with a perinatology practice and feel that their experience is invaluable...and if they don't know the answer, they know someone who does within their network of perinatology colleagues. So i wish you the best of luck...and hopefully i will see ya around on the triplet thread:-)
