Another Set Of Sextuplets On The Way
A women in Florida will set a state birth record if she successfully delivers her sextuplets later this summer.
Patty and Jack Kiewra were 'stunned and speechless' when they found out that their daughter was expecting 6 babies.
Karoline will be 20 weeks pregnant Monday, and doctors hope she can make it to at least 30 to 32 weeks before the babies are born by cesarean section.We wish these babies at least 10 weeks in the womb. I do not want to report next week that they have arrived!
After covering this exact situation a few times it starts to frustrate me that all these couples talk about leaving things in Gods hands.
These babies need a high calorie diet with a good prenatal vitamin to grow. They need low activity while in utero and a good NICU team to take care of them when they arrive.
Once again, I feel like everyone has rose coloured glasses while viewing this situation. It is going to take a village to raise these babies if they are able to hold on for 8-10 more weeks to arrive.
