Hi all! Long time lurker and silent supporter, but this is my first post. I'm a FTM, technically due November 14 with spontaneous triplets, an identical set of twin girls (no membrane) and a boy. Due to the girls, the doctors won't let me go much past 32.0 (late September) and I'm headed for HBR at 26.1 for monitoring. While, at our 10 week appointment, the MFMs gave us a 50 percent chance of delivering three live babies and 90 percent chance of major birth defects in one or more - we have been blessed with an uneventful pregnancy and three perfect children still cooking away at 24.5. It's been a long ride - and it will get more exciting before it's over - but I've mostly just taken it a day at a time.
I just wanted to say thank you to all of the amazing ladies on the multiples, high risk and november 2013 boards. I've never been one to post anything, anywhere, but I have been so grateful to you all for your guidance, humor and advice. Particularly seeing where some of the multiple moms have gone, has given me some hope that I won't be completely drowning once I actually get these little ones home. (Honestly, I've been so focused on growing them and getting them out safe, there has not been a whole lot of thought about what happens after!) I've prayed for many of you and hope to be a more active supporter on the boards in the future. Thanks for letting me join you all.
