Be Careful What You Wish For….

You know when they say that? “Be careful what you wish for!” I now know what “they” mean….we are no longer having twins….we’re having triplets. We found out today that one of the embyros split into identical twins. Now we have identical twins and a fraternal singleton. Ironically, I also had my own doctor’s appointment today for a general check up. I told my doctor that my blood pressure might be a little on the high side because we just got some unexpected, but very happy news….TRIPLETS!!!! Yes, my blood pressure is a bit elevated, but the doctor said he wasn’t surprised at all.

Our GS is ecstatic and says her body is made for this and not to worry. That’s all I’m doing right now…. worrying. Can we afford this? I know, we’ll figure out a way to make it work. I put my two seater convertible up for sale a few weeks ago. My partner already has an SUV, but I said it was time for a family sedan…he informed me this morning that I would be getting a mini van. I’m still not over that.

Its sinking in, but not fast enough. I don’t think our house is big enough for a family of five plus two big dogs (our first babies). At first, I thought, we’ll have time but our doctor informed us that with triplets, they often come early. Originally, we were told that our due date was the end of August. But now, we’re being told to expect early arrivals, possibly late June or early July…

Our families are rallying around us. We already have both Grandma’s, Great Aunts, Aunts and Uncles promising to move in to help. Where will we fit them?

As you can tell, I’m rambling. This is actually how the thoughts are coming to me…. they’re bouncing back and forth in my head.

Well, I’m heading to bed to sleep, possibly for the last time. I’ll write some more when things have settled in. Thanks for reading.

    Thanks for the note and for the positive thoughts. We just heard that we were having triplets less than a week ago… its still sinking in. We’ll have to see about more kids. Originally, we thought that 2 would be enough, but who knows.
