They survived against the odds and have now come home from hospital with mother Rachael, 31, and father Ashley, 29, for the first time – three months after their birth.
Mrs Udell, said: ‘It feels like they are our babies now. Before, we did not feel like parents.
‘We could not have much contact because they were in boxes. We could not touch them much because they needed rest and had the risk of infection.
But they had not even had a chance to buy nappies, clothes or toys when Mrs Udell went into labour.
Despite regular weekly scans, she was unaware there were any problems with identical twins Lucas and Max, and brother Harvey until she began having pelvic pains.
Mr Udell took her to the Royal United Hospital, in Bath, Somerset, on November 19 but they sent her home later that day. However, her pain continued and she was taken back to the hospital in the early hours of the next day.
Doctors realised the babies were imminent, gave her drugs to delay labour and sent her straight to St Michael’s Hospital in Bristol for an emergency caesarean section.
