I am new to this board and I have 4 month old triplets. i was wondering if there were any other triplet moms on the board.
Welcome! I don't have triplets, but look forward to hearing all about yours. What sex are they?
I don't have triplets but I have 11 week old twin boys. They are great and wonderful. I also have a 21 month old girl. my life is very busy.
I can imagine you are very busy. I don't know what I would do if our son was only 21 months. Luckily he is four and can be a big help. It is quite a shocker to go from 1 to 4 kids. Have you had the babies out at all? We have been out twice and we are pretty much swarmed by people asking questions and wanting to see the babies. It is very stressful. I thought it would be fun but it is NOT. Just curious
hello , i am also new and i have 6 month old triplets, 2 boys and a girl born at 30 weeks.
How cool is that? I had no idea we had other parents with triplets on the board.
Wow, triplets is really cool! What is it like with all three? Are they sort of "in-synch" with each other when it comes to things like eating, sleeping, and games or is each different?
i don't take my babies out alot. when i do i keep their faces covered so it keeps people away. i also never go anywhere with all 3 kids by myself. my husband or my mom are alway with me. i can't wait for summer to get here and we can just take walks around the block. vvvv
they are doing ok, all 3 still need O2, they all have reflux 1 severe they were born 9/6/08 the boys came home 11/10 and 11/12 and she came home 11/29. she was 2 lbs 13oz "a" baby B was 3 lbs 3oz and C 3 lbs 4 oz.we just went for our 6 month check up and a 14 lbs b 15 lbs12 oz c 16 4 oz. i just stopped nursing a week ago well pumping..just didnt have the time, the first 3 months they all got breast milk then they had to share. and no i dont think it will get any easier for a long time lol. i do have a nurse 3 days a week i get alot done when shes here. we only have had them out for dr appts they see about 5 drs right now and its like we are a traveling zoo people are brutal i cant belive how many people try to touch them ugh. are your babies getting synagis shots for rsv? mine do thats why i dont take them out. i cant wait till we can go on walks also we are in NY so it will be awhile..
I cannot imagine having people ask such personal questions. Do they just assume you had fertility treatments? What do you say when they ask you things like that?
people really are rude the question i get all the time is " were they natural?" and i say no c-section.. thats really gets them then some push and ask if we did fertility. i think that is so classless. i dont mind if they look at the babies from afar lol but dont ask personal questions..
Even with twins people ask if i have done ivf. I think right now people are just curious. The question about ivf doesn't bother me as much as "why can't you get pregnant on your own." I'm hoping the curiosity will go away soon.
