We are both born and raised in Alaska and currently live in Anchorage.
Becca is an Aviation Transportation Planner with the State of Alaska, with a focus on system planning. Craig currently works as a State of Alaska Administrative Officer. We are both children soccer coaches and enjoy getting out into the wild by hiking, camping, and four-wheeling and look forward to doing this again once the girls are a little bigger.
We were married June 23, 2017.
In September of 2017 we found out we were going to be triplet parents. The Douglets are spontaneous triplets, which result in 32 out of every 100k births in the US. In October we learned all three were girls, with two identical (Baby A & Baby B) and the third possibly identical (Baby C). Baby A and B shared a placenta, Baby C had her own, and all babies had separate sacks (called dichorionic triamniotic). When the girls were about four months of age we determined through DNA testing that all three are identical!
The pregnancy went as smoothly as it could considering it was considered high risk. Becca had terrible morning sickness 24/7 from about six weeks on, so all the time sickness… HAHA, that eventually subsided after several months. Each of the concerns and issues that came up throughout the pregnancy took care of themselves, and we were blessed with three beautiful baby girls.
The Douglets were born March 20, 2018, at 33 weeks and stayed in the NICU for approximately a month.
We are an instant family of five and never would have dreamed this in the past, but now can’t imagine our family any other way!
