Triplet Pregnancy

If you are visiting my website because you have learned that you are pregnant with triplets, I want to lead you in the right direction. Triplet pregnancy is difficult, but it can have a wonderful ending if you take care of yourself. The first thing you want to do is go to and order this book (and read it from cover to cover!): Click here: Expecting Twins, Triplets, and Quads.
This book is worth it’s weight in GOLD.

The next thing you need to do is find out if your hospital has a level 3 NICU, and if they are able to do bedside surgery. IF they are not, you *MUST* find a doctor (a perinatologist) and a hospital that has this ability. Even if you have to relocate for a few’s worth it. Most triplets are premature, and even if they make it full term (for triplets full term is 35-36 weeks, multiples develop faster than singletons) they may need NICU time.

After you have located a good physician there are some great websites and organizations that can assist you with all of the knowledge you need, the contacts that can help you, and message boards for those long lonely days on bedrest!!!

Prayers and well wishes in this most amazing time of your life!!!
