Hello everyone. I'm newly pregnant and had my first ultrasound this morning. Two gestational sacs and two yolk sacs. VERY surprised. No twins in my family, no fertility aids. I'm kind of freaking out, both about the risks of the pregnancy to the babies and at the fact that I might have a 17 month old and twin newborns. I've spent my evening googling triple strollers. Yikes. Words of encouragement from people that have BTDT would be appreciated. I just need to know that it is, in fact, possible to have three kids under two and keep them all healthy and happy and myself sane.

Congratulations!! Well, I'm here to say 3 kids under 2 is definitely possible to handle. It's not easy, but just take it as it comes :-) I've got 3 21month olds and life is defintely crazy fun.

Good luck with your pregnancy and make sure to take it very easy!

Thank you to *Kiliki* for creating the perfect siggy!

Congrats and welcome. My duo are my only 2, so I don't have experience with 3 that young. I used to take care of my niece (4) and my nephew (2) along with my 2. It wasn't easy, but definitely doable. We were out of the house every day I watched them. I would wear one of my kids in an Ergo or Moby, the 4 year old would walk and my nephew and other baby would ride in a double stroller.

Thank you peimum for my siggie

I'm fairly new to this group as well and will have 3 age 15mo and under. I'm not too worried (maybe I should be?) but then I have a lot of helping hands in my house. I've also done the 3 dc age 2 and under before so that broke me in a little. I have a Joovy Big Caboose that I love! It's built to last just about anything!

There are a few of us due close to each other so it will be fun to go through this together.
One-time "I'm NEVER having kids!" woman to mama of 11. Love living the beautiful life I thought I never wanted. ♥

Also missing 11 precious little ones here with us but for a moment.

VERY cautiously expecting after two losses early 2013. Hoping and praying my Valentine's Day due date baby sticks this time.

Congrats and welcome! I can't help with the 3 under 2, since these will be our first. I know people have done it though and I am sure you can too!

I do know how surprised you feel right now though. I felt the same way at our first appt, because twins don't run in our family either. I think my DH and I just kept looking at each other for the first few months and going "twins" :| .... I can tell you that the ladies on this board are wonderful though and have already given me lots of great advice, and I am sure you will find the same thing!

thanks for all of the encouragement. the shock is wearing off and i'm starting to feel a little better about it. i'm going to have another ultrasound next week, so hopefully everything will be progressing as it should be.
