where you pregnany with multiples and didn't know?

I was pregnant with triplets and had no idea. i had a quicky U/S at 8 weeks and they didn't catch it. i was pretty big pretty early and everyone thought twins. twins run HEAVILY in my family. i had my one real U/S at 22 weeks and nobody said anything. when i went into labor at exactly 40 weeks i had THREE bags of water. the nurse said it happens. then i was talking to a nurse friend and she said that means three separate eggs fertilized and implanted. does anyone know? all that was left of the other two embryos was the bag of water.

  • i only had one that carried to term, but my friend who is a nurse said three bags of water means that at some point during the pregnancy i was carrying triplets.
