Triplet Pregnancy

GRATEFUL

I apologize that this post has taken so long for me to get to.  Every time I sit down to write, I get overwhelmed with emotions and I come up blank.  Grateful is the only word that I can use to even begin to describe how I’m feeling. Let me start first with the babies….

The Birth Story

We know that many of you are wondering about the events surrounding the birth of the triplets, so this post is to help bring everyone up to speed. This is Jan, Jenna’s mom. Aaron has been extremely busy being a husband and a father, so I am writing on his behalf to let everyone know…

Delivery Day!

So ‘The Day’ is here! Jenna was admitted into Labor and Delivery yesterday. Her preeclampsia is increasing in severity. Her physician has decided that it is time, mostly to keep Jenna safe and healthy. They are not worried about the babies because she made it to 32 weeks today! They just finished monitoring the babies…

Shocked that I’m STILL home!!!

I’m completely in shock that I’m still home.  Saturday night and all day Sunday were really, really hard on me.  I was contracting every 2-3 minutes and in a ton of pain.  I had a bad headache, was dizzy, back pain, and could barely move all day.  I held out through the day on Sunday…

Mild Preeclampsia

I really thought I was going to dodge this bullet too.  🙁  I’ve just been formally diagnosed with mild preeclampsia.  Basically, there is protein in my urine, my blood pressure is high, and I’ve gained another 4 lbs overnight.  That’s 13 lbs since last Wednesday!  Wow, right?  The liver enzymes came back negative. . .which is…

Today is a new day!

So thankful to hit 31 weeks!  It’s been an eventful week and I’m glad to be on to the next one.  We had a pretty big scare yesterday at our 31 week ultrasound.  I have to start going in for u/s every Wednesday now to monitor and check all of my levels, etc.  Anyway, the…

The excitement continues…

Well, we had to go into the hospital last night bc I was in a ton of pain.  It was basically non-stop lower abdominal pain that got worse with contractions. . .which I am having pretty frequently.  It started 2 days ago, then they would subside, and eventually would come back.  So, at 2:30am last night…

30 Weeks

So, I made it to 30 weeks and the doctors can’t believe it!  They (all three that have seen me) have admitted that they thought these babies were going to come 2 weeks ago.  I’m so thankful to have made it this far. . .30 weeks means we are out of the woods for some…

Cradles

I’m finally getting around to posting pictures of the cradles that my dad made us for the babies.  He and my mom drove them out earlier this month –  they had to bring them to the hospital so I could see them.  🙂  They are beautiful, we love them and are so, so thankful.  …

Still Home

I cannot believe that I am still home!  I went in to the Labor and Delivery floor this afternoon to get checked out and everything has stabilized.  My cervix has shortened a little bit, but they said that was to be expected and they weren’t worried that I was going to go in to pre-term…
