I ended up getting IV's again today for severe dehydration and they wanted to do a test for multiples. I said okay to the U/S, although I didn't want one.

There were not one sac, there were not two sacs, there are three.

Although it looks like baby C is being reabsorbed into my body. There was some pulsing still, but it looks like the baby just died.

Baby A has a heartbeat of 178 and Baby B has a heartbeat of 181.


Baby A and Baby B are measuring perfect. All three have seperate fetal sacs.

I am having twins. And I am okay with not having triplets, honestly.

I think I am in shock.

I just feel overwhelmed with everything. I have three small children already. I couldn't imagine three more. It seems horrible to say that though. I don't know how I would and will do it.

At least I know why I am sick.

Oh my word! Talk about bittersweet!

Big congratulations and big hug too.

I'm curious as to whether all that awful sickness is feeling more worth it? I hope so!

I've been wondering myself, but I do everytime! Then the nausea gets better.

Congrats on the twins!

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?

Congratulations! I have 2 year old twins so of course I am wondering how many babies I am carrying this time. I will find out soon enough, though. I am so sorry for the loss of baby C, but it sounds like you are ok with it. Come over to the multiples forum, the mamas there are awesome!

Blessed mama of four
