Triplets

I'm having triplets and I'm having a hard time with finding information about it. Everyone I talk to has told me about having their baby and what it was like but no one can tell me about triplets. Is there a mom that is out there that can answer questions on triplets?

    I'm sorry, I cannot--I'm the godmother of twins, but I understand that's not nearly the same. I'm going to invite my followers to this post--can someone with experience with multiples offer any advice?

      I have 3 children... but that's not at all the same as 3 babies at the same time, so I have no advice. But I really like this blogger, and she had triplets! http://actualjenny.com/

        what can I expect to happen or see over the next few months? How can I help my husband deal with the fact that there is three of them?

          First of all I would find a good OB who specialized in twins/triplets. There will be frequent prenatal visits, ultrasound exams, and other tests to make sure that the mother is doing well and the babies are developing properly. As the pregnancy progresses, your belly will look larger than in a single pregnancy. You may find that the babies press on your stomach, making it hard to eat large meals. It's important to try to eat healthy foods, though, and the mother of triplets should expect to gain more weight than in a single pregnancy.
          Did you tell your husband already?

            Yes I told him on the phone when he called last. He is happy but is struggling with the fact that I'm here and alone dealing with this. He wants to be here to help with the pregnancy but I keep trying to reassure him that everything is fine. I have an OB that has had twins herself. She comes highly recommended and is great.

              He is working with his commanding officer to come home and take care of me. We aren't sure if that is going to happen. My family has passed on and I'm in a new state and don't have friends out here. My closest friend is in Virginia.

              I got the best news today. I got to talk with my husband on the phone and he said he will be home on June 22nd. I'm so excited! He said they are going to keep him home.

              This is my first pregnancy and I'm having triplets. My husband is in the Army National Guard and is currently deployed. I'm alone in a new city and I don't have any family left to help other than his mom. I enjoy going for walks and playing with my dog.
