For those who don't know me I thought I would take this time to introduce myself. My name is Tanna and I have been married to a wonderful man for 5 and a half years. We met when we were both working for a local grocery store over 12 years ago. At the time I was 16 years old and
After dating for 4 years we married and we started right a way trying to have a baby. Little did we know it wouldn't be as easy to have a baby as we thought. After trying different fertility treatments we found out we were preggers 3 days before Christmas '06. Wow, what a Christmas present. I would have to say it was the best Christmas ever. A few weeks later we found out we were having triplets. We were scared and excited all at the same time. Even though we were scared to have triplets, we were blissfully unaware of how scary a triplet pregnancy could be. I was in an out of the hospital 5 times, with my final stay lasting almost 2 months. In June of '07 we welcomed our babies 11 weeks early. L was first to be born weighing in at 2 lbs 13 oz, C was second to come, weighed 2 lbs 14.4 oz and last was our baby girl D at 2 lbs 10 oz. They were all rushed off to the NICU right after birth and being born at 29 weeks the babies had only an 80% survival rate. The NICU has been described as a rollercoaster ride. We were lucky enough to have a smooth ride, with only a few twists and turns.
Today my babies are now 17 months old and you would never know they were born 11 weeks early. They are all healthy and happy babies.
The Lord has blessed me with a great life and great family. Thanks for stopping by.
