Pregnant with quads!
Sun, 01-01-2012 - 11:56am

Hello ladies, just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Taryn and I'm pregnant with quads! This is a huge shock to us as we struggled with infertility for 2 years and tried 3 rounds of Clomid 50 mg. The third round was in October, I ovulated in November, and got a positive HPT on 11/26. We didn't do IUIs or anything! I had a feeling there were multiples because when I went for my b/w at 16 dpo my HCG was 3259.0 and my Progesterone was 40.2. I went for my first u/s on 12/23 and the dr. said it could be twins, maybe triplets. We were completely overwhelmed but excited at the thought of triplets!

We went for another u/s on 12/30 and the tech said "the dr. was off by 1" I said "ok, so it's twins" she said "no, it's 4!" I almost passed out! Apparently, one egg split into identical twins! What are the odds of that?? So then we have baby
