After labor first started at 26 weeks, a cerclage was put in place.
Nakai, Phoenix and Lianella were born at exactly 32 weeks, each weighing just over 3 pounds. All three required breathing treatments for two weeks but they quickly put on weight and learned how to breastfeed.
All three of them started walking at 10 months and now at age 3, they are all successfully potty trained and in the 90th percentile and above for height. They are very advanced in their language and physical capabilities and most people can’t believe they are only 3, let alone preemies!
