Thanks for the welcome!
And sorry it took me so long to get back. We had a crazy weekend with lots of company and the refrigerator dying (
I'll answer the most asked question first...no they are not spontaneous. It took us four years to get pregnant with our daughter Julia so we decided we didn't want to wait too long before we tried for a second baby. When she was 14 months old we used the exact same drug protocol (a little clomid, little follistim, and progestrone), had the exact same response to the drugs (3 follicles formed) and got pregnant with the triplets. Our first hcg blood test came back at over 1400 so we knew right away there was more than one baby and I think I was just shy of 6 weeks when we did our first ultrasound and saw the three sac's.
I had a very easy pregnancy and carried them until a scheduled c-section at 34 weeks 5 days. They all roomed in with us and all of us came home 4 days later. Liam weighed 4-13, Claire weighed 5-1, and Megan weighed 5-2. After ebfeeding Julia it was important to me that the babies get breastfed but even with a great lactation consultant I only ever got Claire to latch on. I did pump for them for the first 6 months and then stopped. We didn't co-sleep with them because they all slept together and we still had Julia in our bed. Now if someone is having a rough night they get to come to our bed.
Now they are 2! We just did an early intervention evaluation last week and all 3 are right on age level. It is crazy here but I love it. There are even times my husband and I ponder going back to the fertility clinic and trying for just one more!
Well, that's my book! I'm glad to be joining you guys.
