Help removing strings after a certain string with Rex

I'm trying to remove characters after a certain string in my search string. I am still getting the strings after "3" appearing after. I only want a 3 to be displayed.

I only want the 3 to show up from "number of supervisor reminder memos sent:" and I want everything after the 3 to remove.

If you would like to get 3 characters, use this:

... | rex "Number of supervisor reminder memos sent:\s*(?<ex>.{3}?)

If you would like to get all characters up to the first character 3, use this:

... | rex "Number of supervisor reminder memos sent:\s*(?<ex>[^3]+?)
