We're having a baby - make that three :)

On August 23, we went to Tanya's doctor to have all the pregnancy stuff confirmed. Much to our surprise her doctor found not one, not two, but three little babies!

Look at this ultrasound taken the next day by Tanya's perinatologist showing babies "A, B, and C!"

Tanya is pregnant with two identical twins supported by one placenta. This is called a monochorionic diamniotic pregnancy. She is also pregnant with a singleton supported by it's own placenta and amniotic sac. Together, the three babies make up her triplet pregnancy.The twins are at significant risk becuase they share one placenta. And, overall, a triplett pregnancy is risky because it's typical that pregnancies like this gestate less than the normal 40 weeks.Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers and we'll keep you up to date often.
