Baby Updates

Quick updates on day 6. The babies are doing great!! We had a few little bumps along the road the past few days, especially with our little Jasmine. She was having quite a few apneas and apneas with brady's. This is where they stop breathing for just a moment and you need to stimulate them to make them breath again. It doesn't last very long and it's normal for some preemies to have apneas. Oftentimes it is because the brain isn't developed enough and the babies can forget to breath for just a moment or two. But the good news is, she's been great the past few days. Also - the babies have all had issues at time with residuals. Residuals is when they don't digest all the food in their belly's and they need to get it suctioned out before the next feeding. This is also normal though and not a huge concern. They have been increasing feeds and are doing very well now and are also doing great on the breast milk I have been pumping. Suprisingly I have been able to keep up with the triplets and have been bringing plenty of milk up for them - some is already being frozen. I am very happy about that because the breast milk is so good for them being so little and so much easier to digest.

Well that's about it for now - we are all doing good and I'm healing up well from the C-Section. I feel much better today than I have the past days. I will be back to normal in no time.

Thanks for everyone's support and please keep praying that everything continues to go well for us.
