We would like to announce the arrival of [name]Edward[/name] [name]Matthew[/name], [name]William[/name] [name]Thomas[/name] and [name]Mary[/name] [name]Elinor[/name] [name]Rose[/name]! Weighing in at 4lb, 3lb 8oz and 3lb 6oz respectively. They arrived suddenly at 30 weeks despite the hospitals best efforts to halt the labour and were born as they were preping [name]Elinor[/name] for emergency C section… She is recovering well but is a little overwhelmed by the whole thing (as am I to be honest - just didn’t have time to think it happened so fast). They are now 2 days old - all in the NICU - [name]Edward[/name] and [name]William[/name] are on ventilators and [name]Mary[/name] is doing really well just on oxygen. They all have feeding tubes but [name]Mary[/name] had a couple of sucks from a bottle this morning! So far no major problems have been identified with any of them, they just need time - so fingers crossed it stays that way.
[name]Elinor[/name] would like me to pass on her thanks for all your help with their names and she will be back with an update when she leaves the hospital.
