It's Soaking In!

I just wanted to pop in and let you know that we are very excited, but I have to tell you the all day morning sickness is definitely x3! It is even keeping me up during the night. I have been trying every remedy I can think of and that has been suggested. Just wanted you to know I am still here.

We had a great phone conversation with Dr. K last week. Triplets happen less than 4% of the time at the NEDC. They haven't had triplets in over a year. This cycle? There are 2 of us! I have already made contact with the other mom and she is super sweet and I look forward to walking through this journey together. Back to Dr. K...He said that he feels that our small embryo did not make it and that one of the other 2 blasts split into identical twins and the other blast implanted. He said we would know come birth day. 

My due date is June 7, but from what I have read, triplets normally come between 32-34 weeks. We have another u/s at nine weeks. I turned 7 weeks today. Dr. K wants me to see the perinatologist for that u/s. He also wants me to have my thyroid tested this coming week. I haven't had any thyroid issues at all since postpartum with Elizabeth, but I am sure it is wise to check my levels. 

That is about all I can muster to update for now! We do appreciate all of the congratulations and support. This will be a journey I will love to have you all join us on!

hugs & good night!!!


  1. Hope the nausea lets up for you soon! That's exactly what happened in our case...implanted 2 got 3:). My identicals had separate sacs but shared a placenta which was an extra high risk factor and did land me with an early delivery after they developed ttts. However they are thriving healthy 4 year olds today & God blessed us tremendously. I am so happy to hear you have 3 separate placentas, as that is a great blessing. Praying for you & happy to help in any way I can.

  2. So excited for you! ((Hugs, friend!)) :)

  3. Hope you feel better real soon! So excited for you!

  4. I'm thrilled for you and the other triplet momma!!! If you need Angela Friesen's contact info from Friesen Funny Farm, just let me know...as you probably remember, she, too, was blessed with triplets through EA!!!

  5. Hi! Just wanted to pop in and say first congratulations! My husband and I also have triplets from donated embryos. We put three in and two made with one splitting in to identicals! My trio just turned 1 yesterday and it has been a crazy ride. If you have any questions that I might be able to help you with feel free to ask!


We love to hear from you! Please leave us a comment or ask a question.
