Pictures of the Triplets

Yesterday was a busy day and both Steven and I. Steven was extremely tired last night from the lack of sleep. I on the other hand was extremely tired too and feeling the pain from my c-section a lot more. For all of you that thought I looked good during the pregnancy and couldn't believe I didn't gain weight or have swelling well you all got your wish now! My legs (thighs to toes) are swollen bad, apparently this is common with multiples. The doctors finally sent me to L&D (our pre L&D day will have to be another blog post for later, what a couple of days!) because I was running fever most of the day and everything they gave me it continued to rise so I have been stuck by more needles in the last couple of days than my whole 2 month stay in the hospital! Unfortunately the babies have also had to have many IVs for antibiotics to make sure they do not have an infection from my fever. The babies are doing good, the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) nurses are amazed at how well they are doing. The nurses told us they would probably be moved to level 2 NICU soon but right now they do not have bed space for them so they will stay where they are for now. They are all feeding well through the feeding tubes and their antibiotics are being reduced. Soon they will be considered feeders and growers which is the most challenging for babies. Thanks for all of the sweet congratulations, comments and prayers. We are so blessed!

I'm so glad to see pictures. Addison looks big, but I'm sure she looks bigger than she is. You guys both look great. We'll say prayers for speedy steps in the NICU and for rest for both of you! Take care!

Your babies are precious! I had two NICU boys and the time they spend there is so very hard. I hope they get to move to the "feed & grow" stage quickly so you can all come home.
