The Siegrist Family

My pregnancy started like any other typical healthy pregnancy. I did all the right things to monitor the progress of my twin boys but they still arrived prematurely. Almost four months premature, at 26 weeks. I started to develop complications at 25 and a half weeks when I was admitted to Labor and Delivery already 7 centimeters dilated. I was too unstable to be transferred up to Crouse Hospital in fear of delivery in the ambulance and was given a 20% chance of making it through the night. I was given magnesium sulfate to stop the contractions and not only did I make it through the night but I was able to get both doses of steroids, developed through the March of Dimes, administered before the birth of the boys. This and surfactant used immediately after their arrival, greatly improved their chances through the NICU. We were able to hold off for five days until the contractions became stronger. Landon was born at 1 lb 13 oz and 13.5 in long. Shortly after the doctor realized that Baby B had no intention of coming out so we decided to wait and see how long we could hold off. A long 5 hours later Grant Parker made his appearance, breech, at 1 lb 12.2oz and 14 in. long. They were transferred to Crouse so they could receive the best care for their early stage of prematurity. Throughout their NICU journey we dealt with ROP, brain bleeds, jaundice, and even the dreadful sepsis. After over 100 days each boy was released to come home. Landon and Grant just recently celebrated their 7th birthday and are in 1st grade. They are thriving, academically, and physically. Most people are shocked to hear about their grave start. Before the birth of our boys we were not knowledgeable of the benefits the March of Dimes has on women in risk of premature birth. We will be forever grateful for the strides March of Dimes has made to prevent premature birth and help those families whose babies are born too soon.
