A Date Has Been Set

So, if I continue to be so blessed, my triplets will come into the world on Nov 30th, 35wk and 4 days. I can't really argue beyond that; I am getting more than 75% of what I wanted. My OB has heard my concerns and I have heard his and we have settled on 35wk4day. I feel comfortable with this. I really do. I will know going into that surgery room that I did everything I could to give these 3 little ones the best shot and also make sure neither them nor I were put in danger. Keep your fingers crossed for me. I will update as things move along. 33 and 4 today. . . .

Sounds like a good plan to me. I'm glad you were able to find some peace about it. I'll continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers that you stay healthy until November 30th.

I am so pleased to hear that you have found a place of comfort. I hope everything goes well and that you see those babies on the 30th and not before.

I certainly have my fingers crossed for you.

That sounds like a good compromise, and most of all, I'm glad you are happy with the decision. I'll be praying that you and the babes continue to do well in the hospital, and that you get access to good & plentiful food soon!

That sounds like a good plan, and I am glad you are at peace with it. Now try and enjoy the next few weeks!

Wow, sounds like a great day for a few babies! I think you're completely reasonable and glad to hear your Dr is on board. It's a tough situation that you're in but 35 weeks is the magic number for trips and you are doing an AWESOME job getting there! I think under the circumstances you're def doing everything right. The longer those babies stay in the better, unless the risk outweighs the benefits of course. Good luck and I hope you make it til your surgry date!

The Triplets have been born. I will post a new thread (under that same title) with the story. I just wanted everyone from this thread to know.
