St. George family welcomes triplets
(KUTV)  New parents David and Julie Grygla have their hands full these days with three little boys. In March, the couple welcomed triplets. "I think that I was in a bit of a daze and I was so please to be having kids finally," said David.

David and Julie had to turn to fertility treatments to get pregnant. Last year, they learned that Julie was pregnant with triplets. Two of the babies were identical twins. "It was basically I was lying on the table crying and David was laughing and he didn't stop laughing for seven months," said Julie. "I stopped crying after three or four and then got used to the idea."

During the pregnancy, the identical twins developed twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome. At 19 weeks pregnant, Julie went into preterm labor. Doctors stopped the contractions, but Julie would have to go to Los Angeles to have surgery so that doctors could intervene with the twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome. The babies survived and in March, they arrived almost 3 months prematurely.

The triplets would spend the first weeks of their lives in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit at Dixie Regional Medical Center. The babies are now home. David, how is also a family physician, says despite the twin-to-twin syndrome, and despite the fact they were all born prematurely, the triplets are doing well. "They are meeting all of their developmental milestones and they are too cute for words. I think they are going to be all right."
