Hi LizLA,

I am still very overwhelmed. Sad to say not excited. I feel so awful and guilty for my feelings. I am worried all the time. I go back at the end of the week for another ultrasound. I am 8w3d today. I keep reading all the risks and horror stories. Which I stopped doing. My dh has been great. Although he is gathering the facts and I am emotional mess. Plus I feel nauseous. Sorry to be such a downer. I never expected this. All these years of wanting a baby. Now I have all this worry. I thought I would't have to worry as much using a young egg donor. I hope things are going good for you.

I have a patient in Australia who just found out she is having triplets today - 3 heartbeats on the scan. There are a few ladies having triplets at the moment and although there are horror stories there are many that do fabulously well. I personally know of a 51 year old Japanese lady who delivered triplets and she was tiny with no problems. I also know of a Malay lady who had triplets a few weeks ago at 35 weeks - again no problems. I think the main thing is that you get things ready early - I would say by around 24 weeks and after that try and rest as much as possible. Please venture onto the pink board and ask questions. You will be amazed how supportive people are.

I say this in the gentlest way, but please remember that you have options. Just gather all of the information you and your husband need, speak to every doctor you can and decide what is best for you. I know that SR is a difficult topic but there are many, many support boards that can help in your decision-making.

You should find the best high risk Dr and follow his advice. As I understand there are a lot of variables.

Hope you feel better after your appointment.

While I empathize with your worry... I hope and pray your worry will turn into joy (or at least MOSTLY joy - LOL) very soon.

Peace!

I was terrified but now have 3 beautiful souls that i couldnt imagine my life without. I SO get where you are. We can hear 95 positive stories and 5 negative, but will only remember the negative. Don't feel guilty. I know everyone who sees that ultrasound feels like same way. Hugs to you!!

Hi-

I wish you all the best from the bottom of my heart.
I found out I had triplets with a mo/di twins. Beliee it or not mo/di twins are sometime more dangerous ue to the twin-twin syndrome. I did a very extensive research and talked to 3 different high risk OB in three different states. Although I'm a physician I still got a very good picture of all scenarios. They never pushed for SR or continuing with triplets.
After a long 4 week battle with ourselves we decided to do SR.It was the most difficult decision of our life.

I wish I could give more info about my pregnancy without revealing my screen name, but having the twins there for 11 weeks and the extremely high hormone levels are not making the pregnancy easy even now with a singleton. Based on the things now, I'm sure if I did not do SR I would not be able to pass the second trimester. Not that I have any guarantees now, but the chances are higher.

I have read succesful stories about triplets, but without knowing more about their pregnancies an what they call success I wasn't sure what to think.

I don't want to influence your decision in any way. Just wanted to let you know that you're not alone which ever way you go.
