2 years ago today, at this very moment (1pm my time), we were settling in to an L&D room. They couldn't exactly figure out why were were there so early until I told them I was pregnant w/ triplets & since I had not had anything to eat or drink all day, it was best that I came early, per Dr. A's instructions, to get an IV to stay hydrated. If you know anything about triplet pregnancies, you know how important water & staying hydrated is. Without, I would end up having contractions & possibly go in to labor on my own.
Not a good idea since I had 2 cerclages (cervix is stitched shut) & we wouldn't want to tear through them. Needless to say, the wait was long. Very, very long. There ended up being an emergency c-section that took my 6pm slot. And then another. Hmft.
BUT, let me tell you, when Dr. A came in & said it was time to go, she wasn't playing. I actually got to walk down the hall, to the OR room. My last walk carrying my babies. Feeling them move inside me. For ever.
By the time the spinal/epi was in, they were ready to get cutting when everyone realized Todd wasn't there yet. Just as she was breaking Sofi out, Todd came in. PHEW! Then Gabi & Ian followed in the same minute. Yes, 7:20 pm on March 31 st will forever be etched in our minds. 3 beautiful cries followed their entrance in to the world.
And now look at them. They are all big. Seriously big. Not just big b/c they are 2 but big for their age. Next Friday we will know exactly how big but I have a feeling Miss Gabi will be put on a diet (ok, maybe not. what 2 yr old is put on a diet?).
I promise to post loads of pics tomorrow. Until then, I have to run to Target. My freshly made cupcakes need a tray to sit on.
