Moren følte at noget var anderledes ved hendes graviditet – nu viser hun hvad der kom ud

Det var i januar sidste år, at parret Fairbanks fik at vide, at de ventede et nyt familiemedlem. Parret havde to børn i forvejen og var overlykkelige, da de skulle give dem en lillesøster eller lillebror. Tre børn havde altid været lidt af en drøm for dem begge.

Den her gang mærkede den kommende mor, at graviditeten ikke var som de andre, men det var ikke en følelse af bekymring. Det var bare anderledes og mavefornemmelsen, den slår aldrig fejl.

Da Ms FairBanks var i uge 10 tog hun til lægen til et helt almindeligt rutinetjek, hvorefter han foreslog, at de skulle lave en ultralydsscanning. Da dette ikke var planlagt, så den kommende mor det som en sjov bonus og lagde sig glad til rette. Snart blev lægens blik dog mere alvorligt.

“Han sagde ‘Hov! Vent nu lidt’, og jeg tænkte, at nu er der ikke noget barn derinde, eller noget er galt. Men så siger han pludselig ‘Herregud, jeg ser to hjerteslag. Du venter tvillinger'”, fortæller moren.

I’ve never shared much about my C-section on here so now seems good with it being the last day of c-section awareness month. I knew all along that the delivery would be through c-section but got overly nervous the few weeks before delivery. Through the pregnancy I was so focused on keeping the babies healthy and cooking for as long as possible. I heard many scary scenarios about delivering too soon so was counting to get to a safer point daily. (For some reason when you’re pregnant with multiples, everyone likes to share all of the scary stories of their cousins cousin that had babies early, etc and I let fear of that creep in.) By the time we were at a safer place with the babies, the fear of delivery came. My OB was awesome and so patient with me. He knew I was nervous so he scheduled the delivery on his vacation time off because he knew that him being there comforted me. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ Everything went so smooth. Everyone was so excited to be there with us which really helped calmed my nerves! We had almost 20 people in the operating room. Three doctors, nurses, Anesthesiologist, and a NICU crew for each of the babies. I remember the anesthesiologist being so sweet to me the whole time. He kept holding my hand and talking me through everything. Evan was popping back and forth from my side to the doctors’ side to where each of the babies were getting oxygen levels checked. Eli came head down, followed by Easton who was born in the sac (shown on last picture-he may look a little scary to some so don’t scroll to it if you’re uncomfortable with blood), and Jade born feet first! Evan got the entire thing on video and it’s the coolest thing. We have decided to save that just for us for now but we are sharing a small snip of it here! ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ My recovery has been really hard because my belly was so stretched that it would hang way over my incision, making it take longer to fully close and heal. I had to physically lift it with both hands to see the incision for the first months PP. It’s now finally completely healed! ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ Looking back, I wish I wasn’t so nervous for this moment because it is so special. I wish I could relive it again!

The Fairbanks skulle gå fra to børn til fire. Det var i det mindste hvad de troede. I takt med at maven voksede, forstod moren, at der var mere hun ikke vidste. Ganske rigtigt, parret ventede trillinger.

Sidste efterår fik parret trillinger i form af to drenge og en pige, og familien blev pludselig udvidet til syv. Sikke en omvæltning.

Parret ser alle børn som en gave og er taknemmelige for deres “lille” familie.
