My 33million to one triplets…Posted: July 4, 2011
This heart-warming real life story about how Abby Drinkell’s amazing triplets appears in the DAILY MIRROR newspaper today.
After nine miscarriages Abby Drinkell had almost given up having a longed for baby. Then she was researching the internet and came across research at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington that recurrent miscarriages were sometimes caused by a blood clotting problem. She was referred and given a very simple treatment. That was aspirin to thin the blood. It resulted in two gorgeous sons.
But when she split with their dad and met Lee, they wanted a child of their own. Sadly, when she got pregnant she had an ectopic pregnancy, where the baby develops in the fallopian tube. This is a life-threatening condition and the embryo and the tube had to be removed, reducing her fertility by half.
Incredibly, however, she got pregnant again. Once again she took aspirin and amazingly she discovered at her first routine scan she was expecting triplets.
After going into premature labour her babies were born and after a worrying time when they were in special care, they are now all home.
The story is amazing as there is no history of multiple births in the family and the triplets – two boys and a girl – are not identical. And with only one fallopian tube Abby’s doctor calculated the odds of her having triplets as 33million to one!
Abby wanted to share her story to give encouragement to others suffering from fertility issues that you might well end up with a baby – even the big family you dreamed of.
This story has now been placed with a women’s weekly magazine.
