Megan was just like every other first-time mom anxiously awaiting her 20 week ultrasound and the chance to see her baby for the first time (unless there was a medical reason or other concern, her OB does not do ultrasounds before 20 weeks for most mamas). So imagine her surprise when she saw not only 1 baby, but 3 GIRLS !!! Yes sweet Megan was having spontaneous triplets and had no clue until half-way through her pregnancy! At the time, Megan & Kyle were still living in their apartment, but thankfully a couple from their church moved and is letting them rent their house. So when she was 28 weeks pregnant, they moved into their house on a Thursday and ended up in the hospital that following Saturday because she was having some light contractions. Much to her surprise, she was already 4cm, so she was admitted right away and thankfully they were able to get her labor to stop, but the doctors expected that she would deliver within a week. A week passed and she was still hanging in there, so she was moved to a less intense floor for the remainder of their 44 day hospital stay.
Megan & Kyle made the best of their long stay and were just thankful for every day that passed with the girls still safely inside their mama. Megan & Kyle had a team of family & friends working to unpack their house and get everything ready for them while they were stuck in the hospital. Megan made it all the way to 35 weeks, and then gave birth via c-section to 3 beautiful, healthy baby girls on the morning of January 24, 2015. The girls are still in the NICU with feeding tubes, but they are doing great and are expected be home very soon 🙂
God sure knew what he was doing when He blessed Megan & Kyle with 3 little surprises, though, because they have totally embraced the crazy and have had such a positive outlook ever since. They were so at ease and comfortable caring for the 3 girls in the hospital and I’m going to join everyone else praying that their transition home goes smoothly. Congratulations Megan & Kyle!!
