We were blessed with triplets to cherish and love. Born together, to grow apart, two daughters in our hands and one son in our hearts. I remember being afraid all of the time. Sometimes, it was easier not to think about it, but it didn’t mean I wasn’t afraid. I was afraid of falling. I was afraid I was alienating people. I was afraid of not gaining enough weight. I was afraid for my husband, feeling guilty for having him handle everything at home. Mostly I was afraid of exactly what happened going to that one ultrasound to hear those words, there is no heartbeat. But being afraid didn’t stop it from happening. I was also sad a lot. I was missing out on our foster daughter at home, on my parents’ arrival to help us, on my friends, on my life; it all made me sad. Despite this sadness, I have to admit I liked the time to rest and not having to do housework with a bulging belly. I looked full term at five months, so it was difficult to do almost anything. I also liked having meals brought to me and taken away. The antenatal ward felt like you were catered to: Whatever you wanted, when you wanted it! I did expect people to come visit me. It helped the time pass.
