So I am 14 weeks and 4 days today with triplets, they think A-girl, B-girl, and C-Boy. I have an 8 month old right now. So things are definantly going to get hard I know that. Those that have triplets, what can I expect?? What is it like in a day of your daily schedule?

Congratulations! Your story sounds very similar to mine. I found out at 14 weeks that I was having triplets and Daniel was 9 months. It was hard at first but once they were older I loved that they had their own little play group and kept each other entertained.

I alway wanted a quad stroller. I dont have triplets but my kids were all close together. Dd2 was 21mos when the twins arrived and still needs to ride in a stroller. I wish I would have bought one. At this point it would be silly to buy one since DD2 walks a lot more but it would still be nice to have.

Congrats!!! Hope you all are doing good and that they are all healthy.

Our Quadruplets are 2yrs 4 1/2 months now. The first year was the hardest, but it gets easier the older they get. One of the biggest issues is when they were all hungry at the same time. It was difficult trying to feed them all, at first we started a schedule to feed 2 at a time and then the other 2 30mins later. But it never fails the other 2 would wake up hungry before it was their time. So one night when they were about 3 1/2months old, I figured out how to feed all four at the same time and decided not to wake the wife up. I laid all for on their side on boppy pillows and propped up their bottle and would just go down the line burping each one. The wife still work up and was wondering why it was all quite and when she saw them all being fed at the same time she was like, "well i'm going back to bed".

24 weeks today! THe doctors are hoping for at least 28 weeks, I am on total bed rest and medications to stop contractions. The meds make me feel really weird but Ill deal with it, if it means keeping them in longer to bake. My son is now 10 months old. He is growing up so quickly. He is starting to stand by himself but when he realzise it he falls on his butt, and he is starting to walk much more when we hold his hands :) Hoping the babies are at least a year apart.
