Hi everyone, I just found out about this board from someone on the August DDC. Actually though, I just found out yesterday we're (cautiously) expecting triplets! So we probably will be due in late June instead of August.

We went through IVF, and because we did chromosomal screening, we know the sexes already - two girls, one boy! We're so happy I can't even begin to tell you. I've had 4 miscarriages, and I started bleeding fairly heavily Christmas eve after spotting for several days & I was sure it was the end. We had to wait almost 4 days for our u/s because of the holiday rush to find out whether or not we were still pg. Lo and behold, three sacs, three babies, three heartbeats!

So we're still in shock, and it's hitting me now I need to start figuring out how to deal with 3 feedings, 3 diaper changes, 3 baths maybe all at once??? How do you get three of those clip-on cribs for my bed so they can sleep in the same room with us in the beginning? I'm so incredibly happy to have 3 babies but I know it's going to be a real challenge!

Today I was trying to figure out what the best bed-rest setup is. I telecommute & do web work and computer graphics, so I'm trying to find an ergonomic laptop table or one I can hook up my Mac Mini + a flatscreen monitor to. I love laptops but they cramp up my hands, so I'd rather have my mouse and keyboard and cinema display if possible. If anyone has advice I'm interested!

I'm very happy to find this board & looking forward to getting to know you girls!

I'm glad I found you on this side too :-)

I'm on the August board along with you. I'm having TWINS! It is all so exciting and overwhelming at the same time.

This should be an interesting and fun journey for us all!
