Hello! My name is Trixie, I just happen to have three little children growing inside of me! Yup. I am a sophmore in Highschool and I'm a couple weeks pregnant with triplets. My boyfriend is 17, almost 18 (his birthday is the 15) and I don't really know what to do. I haven't told my parents, yet. Any tips? I plan to keep the children, no abortion. It's possible that I'll put them up for adoption but that is HIGHLY UNLIKELY. Anyway, the ultrasound said the kids were healthy.

Trixie, are you bored? Why post such an outrageous and false statement. I am a school nurse and I hear it all! There is no way you know you have healthy, four weeks triplets, that were seen on an US, paid for by your BF parents' insurance? Makes no sense. Go play outside, or join some school clubs!

Um, still HUGE HOLES in your story.

Your boyfriend's parents cannot claim you on their insurance, for one.

Everything you have written doesn't make sense.
You don't find out you are pregnant at a couple of weeks, you would be at least 4-5 weeks along when you miss a period.
There is no way you would have had an ultrasound this early. There is no way they can tell you that the babies are healthy this early. They can't even see the heartbeats!
How about you make your story believable first instead of completely unbelievable.

Your are right Dove, state coverage and "ObamaCare" is very liberal. I was speaking terms of private coverage. My mistake, none the less, she'd never get her BF parents plan to pay...

Sarah... I will add that our state insurance will cover all pregnancy costs for a minor of 14+ w/out parental consent.. so that type of thing might depend on the state, but every other point you've made is absolutely true. ;)

An ultrasound at 4 weeks wouldn't show even a single actual baby.. much less 3... and using someone else's insurance is illegal and impossible.

Ev is right, a single birth pregnancy is not even visualized on US at 4 weeks. At 5-6 weeks is the earliest that the gestational sac can be seen. Also, the using the BF parents insurance? Really? Never gonna happen.

I agree Trixie....You are 15 and you seem to think you know everything about this. I am sorry but I find it a bit hard to believe that at 4 weeks or so you know you are having triplets and so on. No ulstrasound is going to catch that yet.

You cannot get an US done on your BF insurance. Also, even you you were a covered member on his insurance (which makes no sense at all) most plans will not cover obstetric costs for minor children. So I don't know why you are saying this, but it just does not add up. And at four weeks, you would have just noted you were late and done a home test. Then with the positive home test you could see a doctor, but you could not have the US without parental consent. My daughter at 17 even needed my consent for her to have an EKG.

They still don't usually do ultrasounds before 6 weeks as there isn't a heartbeat to detect earlier.

Ok I think I need to update this. By a couple I meant four weeks not two (I know that that is REALLY confusiong and I'm sorry), and I got an ultrasound on my boyfriend's parent's insurance, I'm not sure why My parents now know.

I'm calling nonsense as well. No 15 year old in the US can ask for an ultrasound or confidentiality in their medical records until they are 18.

A pregnancy takes linger than 2 weeks to be detected via a test, an any physician I have spoken with will not perform an ultrasound before 6 weeks.

Not to mention the age of consent question...

I find this post suspicious. The others are correct a triplet pregnancy cannot be confirmed at a "couple" weeks. Also, how did you even get an US done without your parents consent? It is also too soon to declare the babies "healthy". You are 15, and the age of consent in Maryland (which is where you are from according to your profile) is 16.

At only a couple of weeks pregnant and you've already had an ultrasound confirming triplets... By a couple do you mean two? Because that is typically when conception occurs.. most people don't even know they are pregnant until what would be considered 4-5 weeks along... and most people don't get an ultrasound til 6-8+ weeks...

Anyway... if you are actually 15 and actually pregnant... tell your parents immediately because you are going to need a lot of help. A triplet pregnancy is extremely high risk even for an adult... being only 15 you would be even more high risk and quite likely to endure some bedrest, preterm labor, and dealing w/ premature births.

If you are only two weeks pregnant then you would not yet know if you were having just one or even three. And if you are pregnant you need to tell your parents because you are going to be showing quite soon if you are carrying more than one baby.
