32w6d - Our girls are here!

My water broke on Sunday afternoon at 1:35. We arrived at the hospital an hour later and I was 5 cm dilated. Shortly after 4 pm our babies came into the world, kicking and screaming in surround sound.

Baby A
3 lb 15 oz
4:03 pm

Baby B
3 lb 14 oz
4:04 pm

Baby C
3 lb 13 oz
4:06 pm

All 3 girls are in the NICU receiving help with breathing and hooked up to IVs for nutrition. I saw them for a few minutes on Sunday evening, but I have since developed preeclampsia and have had to rely on my Dh for photos and video clips of our babies. (They are tiny, but seem strong. And oh so adorable!)

I'm on the devil drug, magnesium sulfate, to prevent seizures and/or a stroke and have been feeling absolutely horrid. Will update more as soon as I'm able.

Congratulations on your baby girls!! Glad to hear they are doing well and hope you are feeling good soon!

Kate said...

Congrats! Sounds like those girls really wanted to come out now, whether by rupturing your membranes or giving you the preeclampsia. Hope the BP and all settles down soon so you can go off the mag.
Awesome job on the nearly identical weights! I'm sure they'll be tough ones and fly through their NICU stay. Can't wait to hear more details when you're feeling better.

BB said...

CONGRATULATIONS AND CELEBRATIONS....YOUR BABES ARE A GOOD SIZE AND NOT MUCH SMALLER THAN OUR AMELIA AT BIRTH. They may lose a little weight...however with much luck they will maintain their weight and not drop to 3 lbs as Amelia did...all circumstances different. WOW to you for growing so much BABY. I am so excited for you. YOUR DREAM OF BEING A MOMMY has now emerged! Welcome to the world of mommy-hood....three times over.

Hugs, Hugs, Hugs (and to you and Dh Hugs, Hugs) - two to five...is quite the accomplishment. Sorry about the drugs and being bed ridden you hang in there and get better soon.

Love Sharon
