27 Weeks 6 Days

Becca's contractions have started back up.  The medical staff is pretty sure they can get them stopped but I might be a father very soon.  Rebecca is on an IV (not magnesium) to stop them and is very drowsy.   Becca says the babies need to hold off until at least Sunday so that she can get the steroid shot tomorrow and it can have a few days to take effect.

Please give us some space at this time.  We will update our family and then the blog when we know more.

The babies were measured today:

Caleb: 2 lbs 11 oz        28 weeks 2 days

Abby: 2 lbs 10 oz        28 weeks 2 days

Elijah: 2 lbs 7 oz           28 weeks 1 day

Elizabeth: 1 lb 14 oz     26 weeks 5 days

Ellie is behind but she is still healthy and she will remain behind while in utero.  All the babies have at least 4 cms of fluid

  1. praying praying praying praying praying praying..... with much love

  2. There are hundreds of people praying for you right now all over the world! You are covered. Love you!

  3. I'm praying the contractions will stop and that the babies will wait a few more weeks before they make their appearance.

  4. We've got Austin, TX praying for you! I pray God's peace will be over you both!

  5. Thanks for the update, we are all pulling for the doctors to get them stopped for another few days. The 2nd round of steroids is pretty important for their lung development. So i'm sure they will do all they can do to hold them off for atleast 24hrs after the 2nd shot.

    Also, just remember that those baby measurements are just a pretty good guesstimate, Elizabeth's could probably weigh a little more than what they measured. So we are praying thats the case. Then again, i'm sure when she is born she will quickly start to grow. Ours started to put on weight quickly and surpassed their birth weights on day 3.

  6. Hey Rebecca....praying for your little ones and you!

  7. The Barretts are praying! We love all of you.

  8. We are praying for you. We delivered at 28wk 5d and all of ours are doing great. A few scary moments here and there, but it makes you stronger. The babies are going to be fine. You're going to be great parents of multiples.

    Take time for your selves and we'll be here for you on the blog or facebook anytime.

    Hugs and prayers.
