I vaguely remember being here a long time ago, I think when I was pregnant with my oldest, but I drifted away. I'm back now :)

I'm Athena. I'm a happily married mom of 5. Our family is a little unusual, we have an adopted 18 year old, who is technically my nephew on my husband's side. We have 4 biological children, our oldest turned 6 in January, and we have triplets who will be 6 in September. Our oldest starts college this fall, and all 4 of the younger children will start 1st grade in just a few weeks.

With one an adult and the others all in school, we decided we were ready to try for another baby, and I'm pregnant, during the first month of trying, so I'm a little in shock, I did not anticipate that it would happen so fast! I'm due April 2nd.

Congrats!! April 2nd is my DH birthday.  Are you afraid of having multiples again after having triplets?

Thank you :)

Yes, it's a concern. I had two miscarriages before I had our 6 year old, and one was a set of twins, so I know multiples are a risk.
