TTC after 35

Update: Dr's Appt!

Three years TTC + 3rd Pregnancy = THREE babies.

 

Big SmileBig SmileBig Smile

 

They are all fraternal. 

 I saw all their little hearts fluttering away which the Dr said were strong. He did say that one was smaller than the other and  since I'll be 6 weeks tomorrow I'm not completely out of the woods yet but seeing the heart beats is good and he's confident.

He also mentioned reduction not that I NEED to have it done but that this does put me in a higher risk and wanted me to be aware of the option. My husband and I agree that unless my life is at risk and/or the life of the other babies than we won't be doing that.

 I go back to see him on Monday.  

 

I'm pretty chill considering this news.  YesYesYes

    I did not fall on the floor but I did keep saying "OMG!' when he said 'here's the first baby' and then 'here's the second' and then 'I think I saw a third...yup, there it is'. 

    I think I'm in shock, really, which I wouldn't doubt continues for the next 19 years.

    Things are good...we are just in 'wait mode'...which I'm used to waiting; but for some reason am completely calm about waiting for a potential match...unlike the 2WW or forced break wait.  Weird, but true.

    I think 3 is your lucky number and should go play the lottery!   :)
