Friends and Family,
Lucy had another rough night, but at least this time she was in hospital care. Dr. Pereyo came to check on Lucy and the babes, and her water broke sometime after that. Ben called to inform us of the incident and let us know they were moving Lucy to Labor and Delivery.
This was quite a shock in the middle of the night, and it was even more shocking when we arrived to a very nonchalant staff. This is when we (or at least I) found out that one sac rupturing does not necessarily mean Lucy has to deliver the babies immediately. What it does mean is that the baby is no longer in a sterile environment and there is a risk of infection. This is will gauge when to deliver the babies, when lucy show signs of fever or infection, they will take her in. Sounds like this could be hours, days, or even weeks. Lucy met with Dr. Scardo this morning and he predicted that the babies would stay put for another week to a week and a half.
They started administering steriod shots to Lucy yesterday to help speed the lung development of the babies. She was also started on antibiotics to fight infection and is still on the magnesium drip. She is not feeling well and I don't think it helps that she has been poked and proded, but this is all for the health of the babies. As much as Ben and Lucy would love to see friends and family right now, it's just not a good time. Mom, dad, and I are going to get out of here as soon as I update this post so that mama bear and papa bear can get some rest.
The babies current weights:
baby a: 2lbs 1oz
baby b: 2 lbs 6oz
baby c : 1 lbs 15 oz
Keep praying that these babies stay in the womb as long as they can! The bigger the better!
P.S. Happy birthday Aunt Spencer!
