Yesterday, after having nothing but great reports on her babies, Connie went to the ER very concerned that she might be miscarrying one of her triplets. After a difficult four hour wait (is it a coincidence that the ultrasound technician didn't get there until after the Colts game was over?), my sister was relieved to find out that all the babies were still visible and had strong heartbeats. She was also assured that she was not dilated at all.
She came home obviously shaken up and with instructions to rest. She is a high school science teacher, and resting can only be done once lesson plans are in place for her subs. She was told that the bleeding should subside in the next couple of days. Her doctor has pushed her next appointment up from next Tuesday to this coming Friday.
I know many of you were intrigued and moved by her story so I wanted to keep you up to date on her pregnancy. Thus far, her doctor has been happily surprised by how well the pregnancy has gone. The babies have been growing at an equal and standard rate, and no abnormalities have been detected. We are hoping that after a couple of days of rest, her bleeding will subside, and the doctor will give her the go ahead to go back to work.
