Ummm....it's triplets!

(Sent from Verizon Cell Phone)

Ummm....it's triplets! or at least there are 3 sacs...we'll see next week
:-)


~*~Update~*~
Ok, so we're home now. So, triplets. Yea, triplets. We're obviously excited to be pregnant, but definitely a bit freaked out at all that triplets bring with them: First and foremost the risks to their and my health, never mind the additional upfront expenses (new car any one?). We're both aware that if all 3 are viable we don't have an easy road ahead of us.

Being that I am only 5.5 weeks there were no heartbeats yet, next week we'll know more for sure. My nurse even warned me that sometimes the body will reject 1 or more of the sacs because there are more.

That said....We're still processing all this. I do know that 2 of the sacs were measuring at a 15, and one was only at a 10. As we have always said it's all in God's hands, and we are trusting Him through this. If we go back next week and we still have 3 little ones we know that it will be ok, and if it's not, it will still be ok.

Of course, we're anticipating everyone's response to triplets and having 4 under 3....it's a good thing we like kids and would like more than 2 or 3 :-)

Wow!! I can't imagine all that you are having to process! God is in this situation, and He will take care of you!! I have to confess that I really thought there might be 3. No clue why--just a feeling! Praying for you and those babies!!

Someone very close to me is having trips. A pair of identical girls and a boy. She's 23.1 weeks. At 19 weeks she was the size of a singleton pregnancy at 8½ months.
This is a huge journey, enjoy the ride!
