How many weeks were your trips? How much did they weigh at birth?
36 weeks, 5 days... Ciaran weighted in at 6 lbs,6 oz, Aisling at 6 lbs even, and Niamh at 6 lbs, 2 oz. We went home after 3 days in the NICU, for safety, as my pregnancy was labeled as 'high risk', me being older. They are healthy, though, and doing fine :) 4th day at home, today :) Very happy to be able to hold them !! :D Good luck, everyone!! :)
Thanks, but I don't feel like that, lol :) This is my first (and last) pregnancy, as I'm 41 now, and I'm just happy it went well so far, after so many years of 'trying' and IVF...We hope they will be healthy and happy, and will do everything in our power to see to that. Right now, I'm as big as a house, and resting as much as possible (gained 40 kg (88 lb), and counting, started at 60 kg/133 lb). Good luck everyone! :)
I'm at 36 weeks and 1 day now, Yesterday's USG estimates were 6.4 lb (Ciaran), 6.1 lb (Niamh), 6 lb (Aisling). Starting mat leave today. Scheduled for C-section on May 3rd, although I may go earlier... No dilation as yet, but my membranes are thinning... Hoping for the best :)

30w1d. My girl was 3#7 and came home at 4 weeks and 1 day old. My boys were 3#4 and 3#6 and both came home at 6 weeks to the day. They all did wonderfully, just had to learn the suck/swallow reflex and to keep their body temp up.
I was in the hospital for 14 days before they were born with my last bout of preterm labor. Brethine and Magnesium Sulfate (fire in a bag I called it) off and on until I started dilating. I say this to say that I was able to get several rounds of steroid shots for their lungs before they were born.
They will be 11 years old in 5 weeks.

Hi! We had BBG triplets at 31.5 weeks and they weighed 4 lbs, 1 oz., 3 lbs, 4oz., and 3 lbs, 0 oz. We were in the NICU for 1 month, no complications other than normal preemie stuff and they are INSANE (healthy) 20-month-olds now!

I'm a nanny to triplets. On my 2nd triplet family now! My "big triplets" were born at 36 weeks (full term for triplets) and were 5lbs 8oz, 5 lbs 2oz and 4lbs 14oz. They are 3 years old and in pre school full time. Actually they started out half day and then their teacher pulled me aside and said she wanted them to start full day because they already knew everything the teachers were working on with the class and she thought they'd benefit more going full day and doing the pre-k curriculum.
My "little triplets" are 5 months old and at birth the 2 boys were each 5lbs on the dot and the girl was 4lbs 12oz. They were also born at 36 weeks.

My girl triplets were born at 28 weeks. 2lbs 6oz, 2lbs 10 oz, and 2lbs 11oz. Still in the NICU, but we were really lucky that they haven't had any major problems. They are now almost 34 weeks (adjusted) and are starting to nipple to feed. Hopefully home by Thanksgiving. Getting there slowly but surely.
