A Woman Was Diagnosed With Secondary Infertility Surprise Gave Birth Adorable Triplets
Roxanne White (37) from Illinois, USA,married her childhood love, Hank, back in July 2015 they began trying to had babies soon. Within months, Roxanne fell pregnant, but it wasn’t to be as she later suffered a ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇ at nine weeks.before she delivered triplets in November 2017 after feared she might never become a mother after a ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇ in 2015 .
In May 2017 the couple found out that the insemination had been a success and Roxanne was pregnant. However, ʙʟᴏᴏᴅ tests revealed high hormone levels, leading Roxanne to believe she could be carrying twins. At 6 weeks scan, she found out having triplets.
The triplets, Haven, Spencer and Riley were born via C-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ on November 28, 2017. Haven and Spencer were brought home on December 21 but unfortunately Riley had to stay in the NICU until January.
In the beginning it felt unreal and I had no idea how my 8st 2lb body could carry three babies. We were even given the option of selective reduction, but we knew right away that we could never take that route. I had a very smooth pregnancy with no health complications. I gained a total of 3st 7lbs throughout my pregnanc.
“At around 31 weeks I started having cord flow issues with baby C (Riley) and I was given steroid shots. Baby C was then diagnosed with intrauterine growth restriction. I ended up delivering at 33 weeks and three days because it was better off for baby C to be outside than on the inside any longer. The delivery went smooth – I didn’t even need a ʙʟᴏᴏᴅ transfusion and thankfully I had no post-op complications. I did have a lot of pain after my C-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ though and my husband had to wheel me around for a week.”
The triplets were born November 28, 2017, with Baby A, Haven, weighing 4lbs 10oz, Baby B, Spencer, weighing 4lbs 11oz and Baby C, Riley, weighing 3lbs 8oz. Haven and Spencer stayed in hospital for just over three weeks, whereas Riley was in hospital care for over a month.
Roxanne also spoke about not wanting any more children after spending years wanting children and then having three.
“We definitely won’t be having any more children. As much as I would love to experience a pregnancy with one baby, that won’t be happening. I always dreamed of having two children, so having three is a huge blessing for us. I also feel like I am getting up there in age because more of my friends’ children are a lot older, some are even in secondary school now.,” said Roxanne.
