Hey, no worries, you're allowed to complain! You at 14 weeks is like a singleton pregnancy at 30 weeks (or something like that, right?) so of course you feel uncomfortable and in pain. You have THREE babies in there! Have you met any other triplet moms that can reassure you that it's going to get better?


no kidding! you're certainly allowed to complain being that you have *three* babies in there! are you planning to work much longer? might you be able to swing stopping work earlier than anticipated?


Complain away! I think the whole "embrace your pregnancy and don't complain" thing can only fairly be applied to singleton pregnancies that have no complications... and maybe not even then!Take care of yourself and your babies.


Do you think you will ever post a "progression" photo, so to speak?

It's your right to complain. Nobody ever said that pregnancy is easy. Doesn't it feel great when you realize that other people know your pregnant. I'll never forget my first pregnancy when I was taking the trains to work and this huge guy stood up for me. Being NY someone else was trying to grab the seat and he said "excuse me, I got up for that pregnant lady - let her have the seat." That's when I knew I was offically showing. It will seem more real once they start kicking.


You really haven't even TOUCHED cranky here, did you realize that? Not even in the neighborhood, really.I think the imposter thing comes from infertility, the total anxiety of the decision-making process, and the nagging concerns about "what happens if" when if is a worst-case scenario. Totally par for the course. But worth fighting, if you can, because this is a big deal.You can't do anything about the nausea or the pains or the exhaustion or the curtailment of normal life (although: mmmm, recliners) but do try to use a little retail therapy if you can, and TAKE PHOTOS. I didn't take photos, and I regret it ENORMOUSLY.Enormous being the operative word, later on in the game.Seriously: retail therapy and regular photos. If you can't feel authentically pregnant, fake it until you make it.Courage [and glad to see that you felt better later]


I'm at 32 weeks, and I still feel like a fake. I think it's just something that happens to some women...
