Hey everyone, I'm new here (as mentioned in the topic). My name is Danni and I am currently on journey #2 which is a sibling project for my first IFs. We had a transfer in November which resulted in a singleton miscarriage at 8 weeks. We tried again and transferred on April 6th which has resulted in triplets.

 

I had my first ultrasound yesterday and our RE was able to find 3 sacs and 3 heartbeats. Baby C was a little behind baby A and B so we're thinking that one may reduce itself. We are 6w5d and I am just a little nervous about everything.

 

I'm looking forward to getting to know and follow other's journeys!

Welcome! I am curious about how many embryos that were transferred? I am looking at a June transfer and we are transferring two. I know that there is a 50% chance of twins and I was told there was a 1% chance of triplets. Good luck and I am looking forward to following your journey. :)

Thank you! We transferred 3 embryos due to poor quality. The RE gave us a 3% chance of triplets and I guess I ended up in that 3%.

Welcome and good luck! RE's give stats based on the actual woman (IM) transferring into herself. There are no reliable stats when it comes to adding a surrogate into the mix. Transferring more, as you found out, only increases the chance of multiples. If you don't have it, I highly recommend Dr. Barbara Luke's book "When you're expecting Twins, Triplets or Quads". It came in handy when I was carrying twins and w/trips on board (even if 1 does reduce naturally), it would really be beneficial to you.

Welcome, and GOOD LUCK! A dear friend of mine carried triplets after IVF for herself. One of hers was slightly behind as well but with a lot of care (and a lot of bedrest!) All three made it and are happy, healthy, perfect little (nearly) two year olds!

welcome!! make sure you and your IFs make a bed rest plan just in case it happens (more than likely if it stays trips). a great book for you is what to expect when you're expecting twins, trips or quads. when i carried the twinkies, the RE was sure twin b would not make it but he's now a crazy 2.5 year old :) i was also on bed rest so don't hesitate to message me!

Thank you everyone! I'll definitely take the book advice and read up as much as I can. :-)

 

We also have a pretty good bed rest plan in our contract. My IFs were great about making sure I get lost wages plus my lost overtime. Luckily my mom lives with us and my dad is retired so I have tons of people to help in case. Not sure how I'd take being stuck on bed rest though, I'm the kind of person who is all over the place.
