Susan: -found the heartbeat & started scanning over to find Baby B. Then there was a white blip. She stiffened and slowly looked at me. "Did you see that?"
Me: "What the fuck was that, Susan??"
Susan: -scanned back. Blip Blip. Then over again Blip Blip, blackness, Blip.- "How did we miss this?? I'm not crazy, right? You see it, too?"
Me: -starting to go numb all over, looked at Trina- "Baby, you're having triplets!"
Trina: -covers her face- "But I don't want triplets!!" -starts laughing-
Me: -paces, sits, paces, looks over Susan's shoulder at the screen, paces...repeats-
Susan: "This just can't be, let me take some measurements..." -mumbles to self the whole time-
Baby A: 7wks1day 132bpm
Baby B: "Sneaky Pete": 7wks 141bpm
Baby C: (Usurped by "new" Baby B): 7wks 134 bpm.
Then we started looking through all of the u/s pics stored in their computer and zooming in to see where we went wrong. Sure enough, in a few, there was a shadow in the back where baby B was peeking out from behind Baby A.
And that, folks, is how we found out we were having triplets. Feel free to send hand-me-downs of any sort and cash donations are always appreciated. :)
