Are there cases of anyone given birth to triplets? I'm scared to undergoe a c-section.

Vaginally, sure!: That doorway used to be the only way we all made it here before the northern c/s door was available. In modern OB care multiple gestations are often relegated to c/s status to "avoid complications" and fetal safety. Talk to your OB md about your c/s fears a I am sure there is a good reason for selecting that over a "southern"(vaginal) exit. ...Read more

I am having a miscarriage of triplets & am having bad cramping how long do you go through a miscarriage with the pain before you are back to normal?

I am having a miscarriage of triplets &  am having bad cramping how long do you go through a miscarriage with the pain  before you are back to normal?

A week or two: This depends on how far along you are. If this is a very early pregnancy, then the cramping and bleeding of a miscarriage can be nothing more than like a heavy period. However, if you know you have triplets, that means you're probably into it at least a couple of months, which means your body is going to need to expel all of those products of conception. If it worsens, go back to your gyn to check. ...Read more

I lost one triplet down to twins dr told me it will get absorbed i'm confused how is that possible and will i bleed heavily i just have been spotting?

Just spotting normal: After one triplet stops growing, your body will often reabsorb that embryo if it is still early in your pregnancy. The cells in that embryo break down, and your body reabsorbs the substances left behind. It is unlikely you will have heavy bleeding: spotting would be common. Good luck on the remaining twins! ...Read more

Why is it so hard to get in shape after a vertical c-section?

Why is it so hard to get in shape after a vertical c-section?

Painful incision.: The vertical skin incisions are less bloody and much easier for your obstetrical surgeon to safely deliver your baby in a cesarean section, however they take longer to completely heal and hurt more than the usual bikini cuts because they affect nerve endings on several neurotomes (nerve levels) of your abdomen. Give it some more time (3 months) before trtying to get back into shape. ...Read more
