Miscarriage means triplets

Filed under: Your Pregnancy

This has got to have been one heck of an emotional roller-coaster of a pregnancy. Beverley Cunningham, at age forty, was giving it a go to have one last child before she was too old. So naturally, she was devastated when doctors told her she'd had a miscarriage. She thought that was it for her. "When they told me I'd miscarried I was so sad and part of me thought it just wasn't meant to be," she said.

That's not the end of the story, however. When she went in for an ultrasound to confirm the miscarriage, the doctors gave her some amazing news -- she was still pregnant and with triplets to boot. "We were crying with relief because I was still pregnant and laughing because it was triplets," said Mrs. Cunningham. She had conceived quadruplets naturally, but had miscarried one of them at 12 weeks.

Now, the Cunninghams have three healthy baby boys. "We are tired out but happier than ever," Mr. Cunningham said. "All we need now is a bigger car." Congratulations to the Cunninghams!
