It's been 9 years gone by. The memories still strong in my heart. This is my story exactly 9 years ago at this very minute....
My water broke for baby B at 11 pm on Jan 1st. An hour later DH and I made it to the hospital. Wasn't having any significant contractions. Was hooked up to monitors and stuff. They did a test 3 times that came back negative, meaning my water never broke. LOL well there is NO way I would have pee'd like that on accident! And the nurses were telling me that their tests are quite accurate...best on the market. OK whatever. So they were going to send me home...but do an ultrasound before I went. So DH calls the IP to tell him false alarm b/c I knew that he probably didn't listen to me when I said to wait about flying out until I heard from the dr. lol DH said he did make a flight but couldn't get out until 6:30 am his time (which was 8:30 am our time). Anyways...the gal was having a hard time measuring fluid for the babies...the dr comes in and says baby B has no fluid....Prep her for surgery. LOL what? You just told me I was going home and we told the IP it was false alarm. ROFL So then I was super bummed b/c I was thinking I'd be going to Bingo that Saturday! lol DH called IP back and said it was time...for real! By this time, I think it was 2:30 am?? I think it took over an hour to get prepped and stuff.
And just like that...9 years ago on January 2nd...with 3 Teams of Nurses waiting...
AT 4:05 AM CST...XIA WAS BORN!!!
AT 4:09 AM CST.... RU WAS BORN!!!
AT 4:12 AM CST.... ZHEN WAS BORN!!!
I can still see images in my mind of the babies as they came out. So beautiful and healthy. To watch them grow up through pictures and videos on Facebook has been a blessing. The Triplets and their Dads are the luckiest people in this world, surrounded by many friends and family who love them dearly.
I love you all....Xia, Ru, Zhen, Ru & Miguel!!!
Happy 9th Birthday, Xia, Ru & Zhen!!!
LOVE, HUGS & KISSES!!!
