Wow, I can't even imagine! I am so sorry that this is in fact a decision that you have to make. How many is the RE wanting you to reduce to?

On a more happy note with multiples... there was a women in my area who was pregnant with six babies at the time I was pregnant with my twins. All six are home and healthly. I posted some links below about her. Best of luck sweetie!

I agree, there's that TV show "John and Kate plus 8." They had sextuplets and all are healthy, normal children.

I know it seems scary, and I know that this must be so hard for you! I wish I could give you a guarantee that all four would be perfectly healthy and normal.

Hi kclefeb78, thanks for the links, they are much appreciated! Wow, 6!!!!!!

Hi Brittanie, I watched almost an entire Jon & Kate marathon one day! Her belly still gives me nightmares (when they show her lying on the hospital bed wrapped in saran wrap, I don't think she can even reach her arms around her belly!) It is chaotic but they manage true.

Update: Well the good news is that I got my referrals to two perinatologists today - one would be the actual doctor to do the reduction procedure (who offers a full counseling session to present all options, not just reduction), the other we would talk to just for our education & a 3rd opinion.

Did I mention that we still don't know if we'd have to reduce both ID twins or just one? So far the doctors have all said we'd have to take both the ID twins, but my brother-in-law the OB said there might be a possibility of reducing just one. Basically they inject a tiny drop of potassium chloride into the embryo(s) which stops its/their heart. Then they would be absorbed by my body.

Steve has kind of flipped on me. At first he was reluctant to consider reduction, but now he's thinking maybe this was a sign that we weren't meant to have 3 babies after all, only two. He's not religious per se, he's more like me, we're just really taken by all these babies & I think especially for Steve, this is hard because we both feel strongly the only boy is the one that twinned. He hasn't come out and said so, but he was ecstatic when the boy "took" and he was going to have a son! Now it looks like he may be taken away again. And we can't go through IVF again, it took too much out of us.

I'm not trying to throw a pity party here, just kind of talking about things out loud because it helps! Thanks for listening!

Oh my goodness, congratulations girl!! Wow, quadruplets!! Thats exciting...I know reduction is always an option that you have to consider, but quite honestly I can't see how you could after seeing those ultrasound pictures...I hope I am not sounding negative, I realize you have to look at all the options.
