Ultrasound Results

Well, I'm back from my u/s and have some amazing results. We went into the exam room - oh, H. was with me - and the tech first tried to get results via an abdominal u/s. That wasn't clear enough, so we went to the transvaginal u/s, always with the cootercam. Anyway, the tech is looking and she shows us that there are two sacks and she does all of the measurements, looks at heartbeats etc and then she say. "I'll be right back". Both, H and I thought to ourselves - that's never good news... The tech came back with another woman. Tech 2 takes over and is looking and H says "so how many do we have in there? and Tech 2 says "well we think it's at least 2." My heart stopped, what does "at least mean". Yep, it means what you think it means... we're having triplets! Holy fuck! We had two embies transferred but one of them split. So, we're expecting a set of identicals and a fraternal.

I guess when we do things, we really do things!

I thought about selective reduction for about half a second. Going into this, i thought if we have triplets we'd reduce - better health for me and better health opportunities for the babies. But, now that I'm faced with it, I'm not sure I could do it. And, I know H. would not go for it. Unless the Dr. gives me very good reasons that we should reduce, we're not going to.

My life just flipped upside down and I'm feeling really good about it.

Oh My. at least two... so why not three... Have to admit I can't wrap my head around that just like that. Was sort of holding my breath for a heartbeat. Half my brain keeps screaming you're not out of the danger zone. But worrying is not going to make it any better and you sounds so happy now. So happy thoughts for growing your miracle.
