LAST DAY OF NURSING FOR SUZ (for a while)

Well, today was my last day as a "nurse" for who knows how long. :(
I just wanted to give a BIG THANKS to all the incredible staff at SCA! Look at this huge basket full of: gift cards, magazines, snacks, books, games, puzzles, etc, that they gave me as a "good luck, we are praying and thinking about you while you are on bedrest" gift! They have embraced me like family and I am going to miss them terribly while I am on bedrest! YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST! ;)


Joe and I took "church directory" pics last night, so while we looked nice (or, at least Suz isn't wearing scrub pants and has makeup on) we were playing around with the camera...

Isn't black supposed to be slimming??? haha! It's funny b/c you really can't tell how big my stomach is when I'm out and about.




Joe is such a goofball, I love this pic...



Oh the little pup...(okay, so I know I shouldn't be holding my 25 lb dog anymore) but look how cute she is?? Man, she is going to have a hard time adjusting to a decrease in attention once the babies are here. (ESPECIALLY with all the attention she is getting and will be getting 24/7 while I'm on bedrest! She is REALLY getting spoiled!) However, when the kiddos reach a "toddler" age after a couple of months, she will be GREAT with them! She loves playing with little children!


The last day in scrubs...thank goodness, b/c I can't fit into half of them!

It's so funny b/c I look at these belly pics and it's just ridiculous! It looks so weird/big! I still really don't "feel" pregnant! That's why I'm excited to start feeling moments and find out the sexes. (Sidenote: if you are ever wondering what that line is going down my belly button, it is a scar from where I had a diagnostic laparoscopy a year ago)

Tomorrow is my "big" appointment with my doctor (full comprehensive exam). I will also find out just what he has planned for this 5 week "house arrest" and bedrest at 20 wks. I am meeting with my dietician for the first time at 10am, then will go on over to see Tabor at noon. I can't wait to see how big my little ones have gotten! Hopefully we will be able to find out some of the sexes of the babies (if they cooperate)..but I'm not getting my hopes up. There are FOUR in there, so it will be more difficult to tell and it is still pretty early. I am in my 16th week (a full 15 weeks)...almost halfway to my delivery--amazing to think! (cross your fingers for 34 weeks!)

Suzanne,

You look great! I love checking your blog and finding new updates:) Good luck at the doctor appointment. We found out 2 out of 3 sexes at 17 weeks and had to wait until 19 weeks for the third. My poor husband held out hope for those extra 2 weeks that we had at least one boy, but the estrogen won out! Hopefully you get lucky and get a good look at the babes tomorrow.

All the best,
Casey

The new pictures are great!! No stretch marks, that is awesome! Can't wait to see how the doctors visit goes for you. I'll be praying it goes wonderfully! You look great :)

Change is not something most of us DON"T take easily and in your case it seems to be in fast forward due to your pregnancy. Just think, they will miss you as much or more than you will miss them. That does not mean that they won't be able to call or dropin to make sure all is well...I hope that all goes well at your Dr appts. Knowing what your schedule will look like up to your babes arrival, hopefully will give you the comfort and goal you need to stay strong thru this tough time.
Thanks for the updates and pictures. As always, in my prayers and it is such a pleasure getting to watch you grow physically, mentally, and most importantly SPIRITUALLY!!!
Can't hardly wait for the next update...With Love, JoLee and Family

Hey, Suzanne! I found your blog through Charla. I find your post so much fun to read. I am also a mother of four little ones--mine are 2 and 3, 7 and 8. Mine however, are spread over 8 years!! You and your husband are going to do great--I can see it in your eyes. You guys look crazy about one another! Now, you get to share that love with four little blessings. I once read, "being a mother is like your heart walking around outside your body"! That was before I had four. You can't imagine how true that is!! Best of luck and I will be praying for you and your husband! Stop over at my blog sometime for a visit. I love new readers!

Suzanne...thanks for keeping up with the posting and belly shots. You are adorable! Can't wait to hear all about the doctors appt and, hopefully, find our the sex of your babies. Oh, and looking forward to seeing your registry online (hint, hint!)

Suz,
You look great! Yes, I can imagine that Shiloh will have a rude awakening when the kiddos come home. Remmy had a hard time and that was just with Thomas. I can't wait to hear about your appt. I know you will make it to at least 34 weeks:) Love ya!

I love that picture of you in black! There is something so beautiful to me about the pregnancy look/glow. I'm laughing inside because I'm getting to know your and Joe's teeth very well lately with your funny up-close pics! :) I can't wait to hear about your appointment!!

Suzanne-
You look precious! That basket of goodies is going to come in very handy! Trust me, I've been there! I can't wait to hear what all of these babies are. :) By the way, have you seen the new show on TLC "John and Kate plus 8"? It's great! They had sextuplets plus one set of twins that were born a few years before the sextuplets! Goodness gracious! It's an inspiring show. It shows that yes you can have these babies! Good luck at the doctors office. By the way, I've added your blog to mine so that people can say a little prayer for you when they visit my site. Love, Shauri

I hope your appointments went well today, Suzanne. That is a fabulous gift basket from your work friends. I'm sure that Shiloh will be in heaven for the next few weeks with you at home. I know Lucy and Desi would love it!

You are glowing-and you look so happy! I love how you show us the belly shots...it amazes me everytime I see your growing stomach! I think you have 1 girl, 3 boys. I just feel it! Have you guys been thinking of any names yet?

Nate, Maurine, & Hannah said...

Suz- Can't wait to hear all about your appointment! Any plans for your upcoming B-day? Hannah and I would like to come for a visit sometime soon. Don't think I'll be able to make it to the nursing reunion this year either- B/C I am only allowed a limited # of WE off and need to be off for Nate's graduation and Hannah's B-day. Talk to you soon. Love Mo

I got to thinking about Shiloh today in fact! I was thinking that while you are on bedrest maybe you could train her to "fetch" you things and then it might also help out when the babies are here: "Shiloh, go fetch a diaper, I have no more hands free!" etc.? She is one smart pup and it could give her some attention!?
Just a wild hair brain idea I had, sorry!
