4 Months and GROWING.....

Happy April everyone!  Spring is blooming and so am I as you can see in the pics!  Finally (with much effort!) the weight is coming on and I can see them growing!   At my last appt. I had gotten to 132 yay, and hoping for even bigger numbers this week!  I'm still feeling really good, just restless during the night.  Usually a rerun of Kathy Lee and Hoda (Today Show) along with lots of cheese and crackers will help put me back to sleep though!   Another thing that helps is reading!  I feel too guilty to read the mindless chick books now with so much to learn (sure that'll change on bedrest), so here is what I'm into now...                          

Most of the info is super helpful and VERY new to me, considering it's so different than even a normal pregnancy. The books and internet can get quite overwhelming, so I try to not to fixate too much on all the negative possibilities, and just keep my eye on the prize!  It's also been so wonderful to compare notes with one of my best friends who is also pregnant and will deliver almost the same time as me!  Makes it a lot easier to have someone that can totally relate to all the highs/lows, etc!
The nursery is getting closer to completion yay!  We got all the paint matched and ready last weekend, chair railing installed,  then Timmy, Ash, and Al painted today while I was at a friend's shower.  The did an awesome job, and i LOVE how it has turned out so far!                

Till Wednesday (when we hopefully find out the genders!),

  1. Hey Lauren-I've been meaning to comment on your blog for a few weeks now, but I always seem to read your posts on my phone. I'm finally sitting at my computer so I can type away!! Not sure if you remember me from classes at A&M, but I saw a post on facebook about our blog and clicked over!! Congrats on ALL 3 of your sweet bundles of joy. I, too, am expecting a little one. But just one though. I have a blog too, if you are interested in following I have enjoyed reading all about your pregnancy. It's truly a miracle that we can carry a baby in our belly, but oh my word WHAT A MIRACLE that you have 3 in yours. I am truly amazed by our God!! I can't wait to follow the rest of your pregnancy and the birth of your sweet babes. Praying for you and your little family.

  2. Oh and I read Girlfriends guide to Pregnancy, and I LOVED that book. One of my favorites. So real and down to earth!! Loved it!!

  3. Oh my goodness! You're adorable!
    The nursery looks awesome! Well done, team!

    Love your updates. Me and my hubs are still praying for y'all! (And Dodger, I hope he doesn't get too jealous)
