Multiples Can Happen

I just found out today that one of my fellow surrogates is pregnant with TRIPLETS. Like most of us, she received two 5-day blastocysts to boost the odds of achieving a pregnancy. However, not only did both blasts implant, but one of them split! She's carrying identical twins and a fraternal sister - all girls! So far all three babies are developing well. :-)

I'm aware that this is a possibility for me too; although I'd thought it "couldn't" happen, obviously it sometimes does.

Ultrasound on June 3rd.


  1. Praying for one or two only for you!!!

  2. Yes! They can...recently there was a transfer of two embryos and the surrogate became pregnant with five babies. Yes, that's right 5. It's like a 1 in 200 millions chance, but it too can happen. Hoping for a good healthy 1 or 2 for you :)
