I Am Truly Amazed...

...at how FAST I am growing! So tonight, Joe was taking our weekly "pregnant pooch" pic (say that five times fast). When he looked at the screen after taking the picture, he said, "WHOA"... I questioned him what was wrong..."is my bra showing? are my pants too low?" To which he responds, "no...uh...are you bloated?"...


Man, sometimes husbands are just not all that bright, eh? ;)


"No Joseph, I'm not bloated, I'm carrying FOUR BABIES INSIDE OF ME!" Then, I take the camera from his hands and look at the picture, "WHOA!" I said! Okay, so maybe he was right...I CANNOT BELIEVE HOW BIG I AM GROWING EVERY SINGLE WEEK! It's just incredible...






To answer more questions:
- Nope, still not getting sick...I feel nauseated sometimes, but it goes away pretty quickly
- Nope, still not wanting to eat...AT ALL! I am forcing myself to eat all the time, then my stomach feels TERRIBLE afterward.
- Still trying to gain weight, but not having much luck
- I'm going to my maternal-fetal specialist on Monday (26th), so I'm going to ask him a TON of questions...

I'll be in Waco this weekend (I took off Thursday and Friday), hanging with the folks for some much needed TLC!!!

Whoa is right! That's unbelievable!! You've still got an adorable bump and look skinny everywhere else! I'm so sorry you're going through the stomach problems. It is no fun to eat when you're not hungry, especially when you've got 4 babies pressing on your stomach! Call me this weekend if you have some time. I want to see that bump in person!

You look precious:) I love the belly. I'm proud of you for working so hard on eating! I know it is tough esp. when you don't feel like it. So what week did you say you would find out the sexes? Do you have names picked out? Have you started thinking about the nursery or nurseries???

I ran across your blog on a blog "rabbit trail", and I find myself coming here often for updates. Your bump is adorable, and you, your husband, and the babies are in my prayers!

Helloooo, babies! Good for you taking some time for yourself and getting spoiled by your parents!

In case you're looking for some pants - I just got 2 pairs of khaki and black pants from Old Navy that actually fit, look cute, and aren't too short. The stretchy waist band is fabulous!!! Pretty funny that we have the same "wedding" dress - I wonder how many other duplicates we have!?!

I hope that you're getting plenty of rest. Once I hit 16 weeks I totally BALLOONED and sleep became nearly impossible.

You really look fantastic and dare I say ... tan?!?

Congratulations on your pregnancy & best wishes for all the best!!!

Your belly is precious! It's good that your taking weekly pictures of it. That's going to be a great way for you to make a belly collage of pictures after the babies are here. Get some rest this weekend. :) Shauri

Lindsey said...

Wow - that's amazing!! (And I mean that in a very complimentary tone!) Your butt is still tiny which makes the belly that much cuter!! ;)

Suzanne,

You asked if anyone was staying with us as we take care of our boys: Yes, we have people coming in around the clock. It will be helpful to you if you are able to build a layer of support that will be willing to come in and help you. But, even if you guys have to do it yourselves, you can do it, it is very tiring, but so so rewarding! God will provide exactly what you need, nothing more, nothing less, trust Him!

Suzanne,

I'm a mother of QUADS!! I have 3 boys and 1 girl who will be 18 months old on April 4. They are so much fun! I had the best experience being pregnant. I would love to tell you my quad story and answer any questions that you might have. I got to know the Murray's while they were pregnant and was able to help them out for just little questions here and there and also a big supporter to them - hope I can help you out in anyway possible! I enjoy reading your blog! We found out the sexes of our quads at 16 weeks. My e-mail address is denisejer@earthlink.net - hope to talk to you soon!

I found your blog through jenny in ms, and I want you to know i am praying for you! How awesome! You look great! I was on bedrest the first 12 weeks of my pregnancy, and the last 10, so I am familiar with bedrest! A few things I found to be nice were #1 having a laptop with internet access (this is how I bought Christmas that year) #2 People scheduled to help you clean your house and prepare food. #3 the library was my friend. At our local library you can search for books/cd's/dvd's online and put them on hold, then my hubby would go pick them up for me. Bes of luck!

I found your blog through jenny holloway in mississippi. I just love it! We too have a beagle and I am 9 weeks pregnant, but with just 1. We were set to start clomid and found out we were pregnant the next week. Anyway, just wanted to let you know I read your blog!
