Leslie's triplets are here!

From Leslie:

We have three baby boys!!!!! The triplets arrived on March 13th at 12:30, 12:31 and 12:32 pm. They are all doing unbelievably well at 33 weeks exactly. I had been in the hospital for 32 days and at home on bed rest for 3 weeks so I am sorry to have been mia so long. The boys names are A- Noah Jacob at 4 lbs. 17 inches, B- Chase Ryan at 2lbs. 13 oz. 16 inches and Tyler Matthew at 3 lbs. 16 inches long. You can imagine my surprise at 3 boys!! Big brother Hunter makes 4 and I am overwhelmed. I just got home on sunday and have spent my days since back at the nicu with them as much as possible. I am home today because unfortunately I am sick and am not allowed to visit!! It is killing me!!! I am very uncomfortable recovering from the surgery it was a long road these last 7 weeks and my dr. says it will be worse due to the bed rest too my body is weaker already. I am sooooooo grateful for all your thoughts and prayers throughout all of this. I know that is what allowed me to make it so far and for them to be healthy. Now they just need to get bigger and stronger. No respiratory issues at all thank God. Just learning to eat now, all 3 have feeding tubes and ivs, etc., monitors but no episodes of apnea, low oxygen, heartrates, etc. We are truly blessed. I have to believe my 3 angels who went before have something to do with these 3 perfect miracles. I will write again when I can but now it is busy mode with them at the nicu and Hunter here. Thank you alll my dear friends I can never repay you for all your support.
love, Leslie

Congratulations Leslie!
What a great birth storey. I am so happy for you that they are doing well! Did you know that it was triplet boys before you had them? How old is Hunter? It must feel so great to be up and moving around again! Congratulations again. I hope they come home soon.

CONGRATS from fellow triplet mom!!! Your boys were a really good size and I'm glad to hear they are doing well. With no breathing or apnea issues they should be home pretty soon. The eating thing can get frustrating but hopefully they'll be quick learners. Congrats again!!

Congrats to Leslie! We want pics as soon as you feel up to taking and posting them. :) What a great birth story. I second that, did you think it was twins, and then got an extra? How cool is that!?

Keep us updated on how you are doing and the boys too!

Thanks for letting us know about the triplets!

Leslie - Congratulations on the arrival of your trio. Take care of yourself - get healthy and strong because I suspect your four boys will keep you on your toes for years to come.
