Expecting Triplets

(4 Posts)

Hi ladies,

I have recently found out that I am expecting triplets following a private early scan.
I am absolutely petrified! I've had a look through the threads to see if I can find anyone else in the same boat - appreciate it's quite rare!

I have a set of MCMA (identical twins in the same sac) and a separate baby in a separate sac.

I'm approx 8 weeks.

Is anyone in the same position?
Does anyone have any success stories to share??

Hope to hear from someone soon as this is certainly a very lonely experience!

Hi there, congratulations, though I imagine you're still in shock. I have 4 month old triplets plus a toddler and found out at the 12 week scan and was in serious shock for a long time, both due to the logistics worries and the medical worries. You should get great care with lots of extra scans. Whereabouts are you?
There is a closed Facebook group for UK Triplet & Quad mums which would definitely be worth you joining. Plus you should join TAMBA and your local multiples group.
Mine were TCTA and I made it to 35 weeks by planned CS and all is well. Happy to help answer questions as I know how daunting it feels. Xx

Wow! As a mum of twins all I can say is you triplet mums must be superheroes. Good luck!

Hi ladies,
Thanks so much for replying to the message.

I went for another scan today and it seems that one of the identical babies has stopped growing, and they couldn't find a heartbeat. So I am down to two! The remaining two are not identical and they both have strong heartbeats! Xx
