Three for three

Just another odd ending to the old year...
The first surprise was when three Warrenton sisters discovered
they were pregnant
and due around the same time.
But the bigger surprise came last week when their babies —
Sophia, Jack and Kara — were born on three consecutive days at the
same hospital in the St. Louis suburb of St. Charles

"I've had sisters deliver within a week or so of each other, but nothing
like this," said Dr. Evelyne Schuetz, who monitored the sisters' pregnancies.
Her medical partner offered to deliver the third, but Schuetz said no way.
"I said, 'I've delivered the two, I have to deliver the third.'
Tracey Mueller, 28, was the first to give birth; daughter Sophia Ann
Mueller arrived at 7:07 a.m. on Dec. 28.
Labor pains next struck Trisha Duvel, 31, who delivered Jack Thomas
Duvel at 9:39 p.m. on Dec. 29.
The next morning, Jamie Roden, 24, started feeling queasy. She checked
into St. Joseph Health Center in St. Charles in the afternoon, and Kara Grace
Roden arrived at 9:23 p.m.
