Had an early u/s, they saw 3 sacs, but only 1 had a baby in it. I go back in 2.5 weeks, sure seems like a long wait!!! Please cross your fingers for me that there is only 1, as this is baby #3 and I think I will be less than happy if I am having #3, 4 and 5. I am 8 weeks, so I assume if there were 3 they would have seen 3 babies, BUT the u/s tech told me sommetimes they dont! Ugh....

That's a lot of information to take in at once! I hope you can find some peace while you're waiting to find out what's really going on in there.

wow.yikes.. i would be scared!

that said, my midwife and friend has triplet girls. she found out at 20 something weeks and they were born like a month later, very early..i believe that were in NICU for a long time, but are healthy and thriving kids now..and though it was a massive shock (no fertility meds used and first pregnancy) they got over it.

DDCC With this pregnancy it started off with triplets, I had IVF and we put 2 embryos in, at 6 weeks we saw two good sacs and one disolving already.

I hope you get the answers you want~!

that is a lot to take in. I had a dream early in this pregnancy that it was triplets. I completely understand your fear that would be really hard for DH and I to deal with too. We have no intention of having 4 kids. Hopefully there is just one baby in there. Got my fingers crossed for you.

I wish it was an April Fool's Joke! lol. I cant believe I have to wait so long, it is killing me... I think maybe the long wait will help me to find some clarity and maybe understand a little better that what is meant to be will be. We have had no fertility treatments and there are no twins or triplets anywhere in our family...Sometimes these things happen

I can't possibly fathom having to wait 2.5 weeks to find out!

I have a good friend who thought she had had a miscarriage due to all the bleeding she was having. She went in for the u/s to see if they needed to do anything more, and the u/s tech said, "Oh wow! You still have a baby in here--look, a heartbeat!" Then there was a pause, "Oh look, there's another baby!" Finally, "Look a third heartbeat!!!"

Identical triplets for her---talk about a phone call to give her husband! In the end, it obviously worked out great and they now have three adorable little girls.

Good luck!
