This was our first sonogram of Lisa's pregnancy.  The dark spots in the center are three sacs--each of which had the potential to grow into a fetus.  Although not visible in this picture, there was actually a fourth sac that was much smaller and misshapen when compared with these three.  While we didn't worry much about the possibility of quadruplets, the real possibility of having triplets was a bit unnerving.  About a week later, we learned in a subsequent sonogram that we were having twins (two heartbeats were heard).
