Halfway To Home Base! 17 Weeks!




Well guys...I'm halfway there! 17 more weeks! The checkup went well today...babies and cervix all look great! I didn't tell you, but last week, I noticed that there was a significant amount of blood in my urine (not vaginal bleeding thank God!). I've had NO symptoms whatsoever, so the doc and I were kinda dumbfounded...especially when my UA (urinalysis) came back normal with trace amounts of bacteria- nothing crazy. He went ahead and prescribed an antibiotic just in case. Well today, I still had trace amounts of blood in my urine, so they did another urine culture. Very weird! But as long as the doc isn't worried and it's not vaginal bleeding, I'm good with it! I'll keep you posted...


Many of you know, I kinda broke the "house arrest" rules last weekend to go to Houston and see all of my friends!! (shhhh! I did great and took it easy!) It was just what I needed! I got some good luvin' from all of my "second mamas" and First Street (where I used to work) even threw me a baby shower! MUCH APPRECIATED! They had it decorated so cute!







Some of my mamas! Lisa, Renee, and Susann




Sweet Angie! I LOVE this pic!! My belly got LOTS of luvin' that day! ;)


Lori...what an amazing, true, loyal, would-do-anything-for-you-in-a-heartbeat, FOREVER FRIEND. Miss her like crazy! I'm still trying to convince her to move in with us and be our nanny! ;)





The proud parents with their cart full of loot!



Okay Joe, smile and say: "I'm having four kids!!! Weeeeeeeee!"

This is his delirious face when he's had all the baby stuff he can handle for one day! (ha! better get used to that! eh?)


In other ridiculously exciting news...my only brother and his incredible wife are MOVING FROM MEMPHIS TO TEXAS THIS WEEKEND!!! (They will be about 15 minutes away from us!) We are SO super excited!!! Collin starts his new job next Monday and Ashley got transferred to a Fort Worth office! What a blessing!! I can't WAIT!!! :)

As always, you look beautiful! I'm glad you had fun in Houston and I will be praying about the bledding issue. I know that any twinge of blood is enough to get your blood pressure up and rapid prayers fired up. I love the names of your babies, all of them just great. Enjoy week 17!

I didn't know they were moving to Texas!! How awesome for y'all to have them nearby! That's so exciting that you had your first shower!! You look great, and I'm glad everything still looks good with your babies!

Suz- Awesome news about Colin and Ash!! Love the pics from 1st street! Love the belly pic! Looking beautiful as ever! Congrats on making it 1/2 way- wonder if the epitaxis and the hematuria are related? Have you had a PT/PTT and INR drawn? Maybe it's just that increased blood volume thing again. Talk to you soon- Love Mo

I have to say that reading all the health stuff, seeing your jobs picks, and memories makes me want to persue being a Nurse as well... Always thought I would in the long run, oh well.... I am glad you had a great time and that The other HOAGs will be in Texas very soon. It is nice to have family close especially as busy as your lives are going to get... Be sure to let them know we send our love.
I am glad that all is well with just a little hickup and not more.. TAKE CARE AND THANKS AGAIN FOR DROPPING US SOME TIDBITS of your lives (x BEN, ANDREW, ETHAN, & SAVANNAH)....THOSE NAMES ARE REALLY GROWING ON ME AND CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THEIR LITTLE SMILES...WOW...GOD IS GOOD AND GREAT!!!! CIOAS!!!

I stumbles upon your blog several weeks ago too and love reading it! I'm having many fertility issues and you just cast such a gleam of hope! I have that same scar on my belly now too! Also, my sister is the proud mom of 3 boys and 1 little girl. They aren't quads, but do range in age from 1-7.

Thanks so much for sharing your lives with us! It is an honor to be praying for you!

I had a baby at 29 weeks, but only one baby. She weighed 2#,8oz. She stayed in NICU for 3 mos., came home at 4#,6oz. She's 8 years old, now and my how the years have flown. Treasure each day because they slip away so very, very, quickly.
