Life just got extra crazy.
We got the timing right this time around! It took extra monitoring, but it is time to go get these babies.
Plane tickets are purchased. Hotel booked. Friend to travel with found. All the various details are getting worked out. And this is really going to happen.
The reality of this brain dump is dawning on me:
We have done what we can to give these babies the best chance they’ve got at continued life. We’ve striven for getting my body ready, we’ve prayed for these babies and this transfer. And now, we gotta just leave it in God’s hands. We have to rest in knowing that God is Good, that He loves us, that He loves these babies more than we ever can.
Yes, we made the choice to transfer all 3 waiting babies. We got good reasons, we thought about it deeply, and we’ve prayed about it a lot. Each baby has about a 50% chance of implanting resulting in pregnancy. It is about the same chances of a coin flip resulting in the coin coming up heads. So, we are flipping 3 coins, and praying that all 3 come up heads. Of course, there is only about a 10% chance of all 3 coins coming up heads. Having triplets is not likely. Having twins is more likely, and having a singleton is even more likely.
We will know about a week or two after the transfer if any babies implanted, but it will be at the 7 week appointment when we know how many babies implanted. Of course, once a baby implants, all the other risks of pregnancy become a thing. About 1 in 6 pregnancies end in miscarriage in the first trimester. The more I learn about these things the more amazed I am that anyone makes it to birth.
We appreciate it when friends, family and strangers pray for us. Pray that God will continue the lives of these babies and grant us the privilege of raising them in our home.
