It is 9.50pm and my daughter Róisín has just eventually drifted off to sleep in my arms. Just like every night she went to bed at 7pm, but due to the fact she is shattered and overtired she couldn't settle. I treid everything but she just would not give in. Elliot was asleep by 7:10pm, and while Rebecca did not want to sleep either, we eventually got her off at about 8pm. Róisín had other...

This time 24 hours ago I was being prepped for my gall bladder to be removed. Being in the operating theatre brought back memories to fourteen months ago, but what a different experience this time around was. Firstly, the operating theatre was empty and I was just being prepped by three staff and it was all very quiet and calm. However, I definitely felt more anxious about having to be put under...

There has been a robin in my garden every day for the last two weeks (or so it seems) - and I think it's a sign my dad is keeping an eye on me. I have had a few brief teary moments while making big decisions over the past few weeks: Do I have surgery? Do I not? Do I return to work or do I not? I've also been tired and I'm missing my family in England a lot; wishing they were here for...

I am writing this from a bed in Tallaght hospital after being admitted following the worst abdominal pain I have experienced. They have decided to keep me in for tests but I am wishing and wishing I was at home with the babies - this is the last thing I need. Thankfully, my mum is staying with us as were are getting them christened on Sunday, so she there holding the fort while my husband works...

Life is such a wonderful thing with our three little miracles in it. Don't get me wrong, I miss my family so much more since the babies have been born and so wish I was nearer to them, as well as my friends at home in the UK. I also miss my dad and think of him everyday and how proud he would be. If only he was here to give the triplets the love that he gave me, my brothers, sister, and nieces...

So time has passed us by, and an update is long overdue! I have had seven weeks with the company of my mum staying or my husband being off, which has been wonderful, and now I have managed to achieve almost two weeks (by the time I finish this) by myself too! Now, I have to say that is not being totally by myself, as my mother-in-law comes to visit and help with the lunchtime feed most days, and...

So what is life like two weeks on from bringing the babies home? Well I have to say it is actually very relaxed! The triplets left the hospital in a great routine, where they were sleeping lots, feeding every three hours and didn’t need to be comforted too much, so we have kept this system going. We ask visitors to come during feeding times so that they can give one of the babies their bottle...

Ok, so this is about the third or fourth attempt to write my update, because life has changed quite a bit since the last one. I am delighted to say that the babies are home! Here's what happened... So, the week leading into their seventh week was productive for the bottle feeding. Elliot progressed to two bottles in a row quite quickly, then three in a row by Tuesday, and by Wednesday it was...

Well, here we are, six weeks on from the babies being born. I got to drive after four weeks, which was great and my energy levels have reverted back to how they were before I was pregnant. My tummy is not doing too bad on slimming down and although I am tired, I’m getting into the swing of getting up every three hours in the night. What I have not practiced for is that I will be up every three...

So as I sit here expressing at 2.30am I thought it was a good opportunity to send an update on our progress. If I was still pregnant, the babies would be at 34 weeks now, but they are actually five weeks old today. 34 weeks was the stage I was aiming to be sectioned at so it is strange to think that I could have been about to have the babies if all had been plain sailing! To think how well they...
