Oh No triplets!!

We found out at 7 weeks through u/s we are having twins. The pregnancy was a surprise we didn't want anymore, because we already have 5. I was on BC and still got pregnant. Today I went in and had another U/S and there is a baby behind one of the twins. My husband did not go with me to the doctors, he had to work. He was uset about the twins, how now do I tell him about the triplets??

  • Now ya got a heck of a Christmas gift for him don't you?

    You could try to get him to laugh.... "Honey I was thinking,,,,What if we name the babies Huey, Duey, and Louie?" See how long it is before he catches on.

    Anyway, congratulations! Good luck with DH.

  • They do have that commercial on TV where she says - and look honey - I saved the card (whatever one it is for - lol) for the big stuff - opens the door to show 3 cribs and 3 car seats :)

  • It was almost exactly 6 years ago that we found out about our surprise triplets. This is just the beginning of alot of surprises. There is never a dull moment in our house with teens and kindergartners. Good luck

  • Wow. The odds of naturally conceiving triplets is about 1 in 8,000. So I'd say these babies were meant to be!

  • What kind of man leaves his pregnant wife? If he does that he's a loser.

    Give him 3 little onsies that say "If you think I'm cute you should see my triplet" and give them to him.

    Try to be understanding of his concern but make sure he understands that you are scared to and you need his support!
