At just over 10 weeks pregnant, Marr went in for her first OB appointment. Her husband sat next to her as Murray spread gel over Marr’s still small baby bump.
“Dr. Murray began doing the sonogram, and all of a sudden she got this funny look on her face and turned the screen away from us,” said Jenny Marr. “I immediately started thinking something was wrong with the heartbeat. I told her it was okay and that she could tell me if there was a problem.”
“Oh no, there’s definitely a heartbeat,” Murray responded. “Actually, there are three babies in there.”
Murray turned the screen toward the couple. At that moment, Chris Marr’s face went ghost white and he passed out, said Jenny Marr.
After about six minutes of shock and silence, the tears started streaming for both parents-to-be.
“It sounds horrible to say, but I don’t know if it was necessarily tears of joy. We were completely overwhelmed and frankly, terrified,” said Chris Marr.
“The fact that we didn’t have any medical intervention, and no history of multiples in either of our families, made the news a total shock,” said Jenny Marr.
Still, they had another surprise in store.
One week later, after the Marrs had somewhat digested the new reality that they were having three babies instead of one, they went to see a high-risk-pregnancy specialist, Brian Rinehart, who practices maternal fetal medicine at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas.
