Please pray for us...(infant loss mentioned)

So last Tuesday, 3/6 around 4:40 p.m. I had what felt like my water breaking...my husband was home and my mom was over visiting. After waiting a few minutes, I stood up and fluid was gushing out. We called 911 right away and then brought me to the hospital. They did an u/s and the babies looked OK at the moment but they brought me up to L&D and I was still leaking a lot of fluid this whole entire time, I was devastated and thought my water broke and that I'd lose them all in a matter of hours/days.

Well this leaking continued and after several ultrasounds the dr. determined that Baby A's amniotic sac had ruptured and she had barely any fluid left, and she was head down and very close to my cervix. We waited and prayed but at 1:56 a.m. on Friday morning 3/9 our little angel Aislyn Reese was born. She stayed with us for about 2 hours until she passed, and weighed 7 oz. and was 8 inches long, she looked exactly like her daddy. It has been devastating and heartbreaking to say the least...

Here we are almost a week after her birth and the rest of the babies are still hanging out but Baby B and Baby C appear to be ruptured as well. I am in bed for 24 hours a day, on tons of medication, vitamins, and antibiotics, and every day we pray that we get closer to them growing faster so that we can come out of this with at least 1 baby.

At this point, the dr. is thinking that I will eventually deliver Baby B and Baby C too, but Baby D has great fluid and looks perfectly fine. We are praying for a miracle and hoping for the best while expecting the worst. I will stay here for the next 3 months if that's what it takes.

So that's what's going on with us for now. The dr. said there's nothing I could have done but sometimes this just happens. I feel so helpless and think of my Aislyn every minute of every day.

Well...on 3/30 at 9:57 a.m. Baby B, Nevan Grace was born. She weighed 15 ounces and was 10 inches long. She stayed with us for about 2 1/2 hours and then joined Aislyn in Heaven. At 7:33 p.m., Baby C, Layden Koi was born weighing 13 ounces and 9 1/2 inches long. She only held on for about 45 minutes until she too, joined her sisters in Heaven.

The girls were so beautiful and looked EXACTLY alike with the exception of slightly different noses. They looked nothing like Aislyn though, who looked just liker her Daddy.

That night, right after Layden's delivery, the dr. did a cervical cerclage and Baby D, who we are naming Harper Quinn, is looking awesome. She has tons of fluid and moves around like crazy. Her Level II u/s last week showed that everything is great and so as long as my body cooperates and we can ward off infection, Harper should stay put long enough to be our only surviving baby. The doctor's are very optimistic because the surgery went great and I have not had any contractions, cramping, or complications since the surgery.

We were prepared for the girls to come, and knew in our hearts that they wouldn't be strong enough or far enough along to survive. They fought so hard to stay put and gave us 3 extra weeks after Aislyn was born. They did so amazing, and I am forever proud and grateful to them for being such little fighters.

Thanking everyone for the positive thoughts and prayers, it's been extremely difficult to lose the girls but we are much more confident at this point since Harper has been unnaffected and healthy since the beginning. Tomorrow I'll be 23 weeks and it will be 1 month since we've been in the hospital.

I am praying that we will leave here with our miracle baby
