Yikes!!! We were in the RE's office the other day, and while waiting for the doctor, I picked up some of his successful photo albums, and amongst all the babies, and twin babies, I saw WAY too many triplets!!! Whoa!!! He was telling us that if we do injectables the multiple birth goes up significantly (and I am thinking like a real chance for twins) but my gosh, I couldn't believe how many triplets were in those photo albums! and not only that...some of them were 3 boys without a single girl! YIKES!!!! As an only child, do you think that freaked me out just a bit?! Anyway, he said the chance with Clomid is not nearly as great as it is with the injectables, and financially Clomid is all we can do at the moment. Don't get me wrong, I want God to bless us, but I dont' think we need to be triple-blessed!

Yeah, I gotcha! Kindof "be careful what you wish for" on steroids!

Sounds delightful! I think I will put that book on my "read later" because I don't want to jinx myself with triplets. I don't mean that...I mean I don't want to bless myself thrice by reading that! haha! But please tell me what the SAHD and WOHM codes mean. I am still learning all of the board lingo!
