Night Out with the Triplet Moms

Last night I went to a Mothers Night Out with the local multiples -- triplets and more -- group. I had a great time getting to know more of the moms. I sat next to a mom who carried to 36 weeks, never went on bed rest, and brought home babies about week later. WOW! I told her she's my role model for this pregnancy.

It was inspiring and comforting to realize that not all higher order multiple (HOM) pregnancies are complicated. Some really do go quite smoothly and others, no matter what you do, just don't. I thought one mom put it well when she said, "When your body is done, it's done. And you can't control that." Ah, no control -- one of many lessons this pregnancy is teaching me!
