1st Trimester

Shock.

Had my first ultra sound today. Its triplets. TRIPLETS. I didn't know you could have triplets naturally. (yes I realize I am dumb) I have always just been a lurker here, never even made a user name... but realized I was going to need a LOT of advice.

    That's awesome news! And that is totally not dumb to think... When I think triplets, I think of fertility drugs! Congrats :)

    They brought a ton of people into my room to look at the ultra sound because there were so amazed! I am the first spontaneous triplets my doc has ever had, and he has been doing this for 15 years! He told me I was in great health so, while I will need close monitoring, he can't for see any problems. They all had strong heart beats :) He thinks two are identical.

    Thanks you guys are so sweet! I posted on the multiples board and a lot of them were nice, one lady kept telling me how my terminology about multiples was wrong and that I have way more to worry about then names (I jokingly said that my one boy and one girl name weren't going to cut it) but I guess not everyone is nice and helpful

    Wow, Congrats!!!  I wasn't sure what to expect when I read "Shock." And you're not dumb!!  It's funny because I was recently thinking how rare it is to hear of triplets without the use of drugs.  You are truly blessed!

    Thanks ladies! I am 8 weeks along and yes my husband was there. He is amazing and started asking all the right question, while I was still blubbering like an idiot. He just doesnt want me to stress :) I know he is nervous but on the way out he jokingly said "Well at least you wont have to have to many pregnancies for all those kids we want" (We wanted 4 :) ) Any way my symptoms : I have been really blessed so far. Only sore bbs and peeing a lot. No morning sickness or nausea or food aversions. I have been very emotional... but thats nothing new

    People don't like it when you refer to your babies as natural because it makes it seem like theirs are unnatural if they had help getting pregnant. It doesn't just apply to multiples.

    Yes I realize that, and I meant no offense. I was just in shock and there are nice ways to help me learn that :) Thanks! I will be sure to use the right terminology now (Plus I am learning a lot about it now... and will continue to for quite some time :P)

    Some people are SO touchy. I can't believe someone would be upset by you using the word "natural" to describe your pregnancy.

    Besides, it doesn't mean their baby is unnatural, it just means their means to get pregnant was with a little help. Geez.

    Anyway, congratulations! I'm jealous. DH and I wanted twins (kill 2 birds with one stone since we want to be done having kids before I turn 30), but unfortunately twins don't run in either side of our family. Good luck!! I'm sure once the shock wears off you'll be triple excited!! Also, that's AWESOME you got away without morning sickness. I've heard sometimes pregnancies with multiples are double the sickness.:)

    That's crazy! I knew it was possible, but I usually attribute it to fertility treatments.  And for what it's worth, I would have said the same thing on the multiples board.  Maybe I'm insensitive or maybe just not well versed in some of their trials and tribulations - either way, I wouldn't take it personally.  We all learn something new everyday.
