Here is an email that Jen sent to family and friends on the 12th, which was when she was 32 weeks exactly.
Wow do our family and friends say powerful prayers! First of all, in our wildest dreams we never thought we would be blessed with triplets, and then to make it this far in the pregnancy is beyond a miracle. Thank you so much for your part in making this a reality for us.
As promised, I am sending another update, as we reached another huge target… 32 weeks!!! At this point, if our boys were born today they would still have a challenging beginning, but no long-term problems. We are still hoping to make it to March 5th, but feel comforted in knowing that we made it to this point.
I continue to ‘hang-out’ in the hospital, which is getting more and more challenging. I am now up to 70 nights in the hospital, which is near ridiculous! I miss my hubby, my home, and my energy, but I do understand that this is a small price to pay for healthy babies.
We’ll be sure to pass along the exciting news and pictures when our little miracles arrive. Until then, please continue to do what you are doing.
FYI- Based on body measurements, our babies weigh approx:
Baby A: 4lbs 5oz
Baby B: 3lbs 2oz
Baby C: 3lbs 7oz
Even though there is quite a difference between the three boys’ weights, our doctor is very pleased with all of their growth, movement, and overall health.
