1. Were you planning to have three? Do triplets run in your family? Did you do fertility?
2. Are those triplets!?! (Make sure you when you say the word triplets you SOUND it out!) Wow, are those triplets? Man you have your hands full with three.
So, here are the answers.
1. No, Jack and I were not "planning" to have three babies. A condition called polysistic ovarian syndrome prevented me from ovulating on a normal basis. After almost a year of trying my doctor recommended we try an oral medicine called clomid. She warned me that if the first dose took there is a chance for multiples, but as I remember the statistics it was a 6-7% chance of twins and less than 1% chance for triplets. (She didn't even tell us the triplet part, just the twin part. We found out the triplet statistic at our first OB appointment). Anywho, after 1 pill of the smallest dose, 8 weeks later we had 3 babes. When I found out I was pregnant I had a feeling I was having twins. Don't ask me why...just a feeling. And, multiples do run on my side of the family so our chances were higher there. So, there you are...no invetro or shots, however a little help to get going...obviously it worked, AND I would not want it any other way!! God has this plan already in his book way before we did.
So there you have it....for the curious cats out there I hope this helps.
