Weekend Update from the Bedridden Quad Preggo

Two of my best friends from Houston drove to come spend time with me this weekend! I got to show them my new house and take them out to dinner at local restaurants. It was a blast! Here's a picture of Lori, Aracely, and me from this past Saturday night.



Okay, okay...so, maybe I'm hallucinating...been stuck in this hospital room for what seems like YEARS!! But it made for a much more entertaining story, eh? Sounds a lot better than: "Lori and Aracely sat on a little sofa in my hospital room for 12 hours and watched me eat every two hours, get my finger stuck 4 times, get vital signs taken every couple of hours, etc." All I can say, is it takes a GREAT friend to sit there and endure that all day! ;) I WILL say that they sure did get a big kick out of watching me try to roll out of bed with my enormous abdominal tumor of love every hour to use the restroom. (Go ahead...laugh it up girls!) They also loved getting to feel the quads during their daily routine soccer game in my tummy. It was SOOOO good to see my buddies and spend time catching up!

I've been in this hospital for a little over a week and it seriously feels like SOOOO much longer! Ahhhhhh! Tomorrow marks 26 full weeks! So that is exciting!

Dr. Tabor is finally back from his week long vacation! (PHEW!) He said he was glad to see that I was still here...and I replied, "YA- ME TOO!"
And bummer...but I have to start on INSULIN SHOTS tonight! :( !
I was hoping I wouldn't have to go there for several weeks...but oh well. My blood sugar is just all over the place and they had maxed out the dosage of Glyburide on me, so...it's that time! Gotta protect those wee little ones inside my belly


Several of you have asked about the nursery progress:
This weekend my BF, Adriane and her husband are going to paint our nurseries as gift to us! (Isn't that awesome??) Adriane is so talented with interior design and creativity...it definitely runs in her family. Ade's mom will be coming up to help, along with my dad, mom, Aunt Judy, and of course, Joe. Here is Ade holding the rug she got to go in our rooms...these are the colors she will be using. (Brown, blue, green, and orange) So weird to think that I will not be able to see it or help organize my own nursery until I am home from the hospital and am a mom for the first time! Joe will have to take lots of pics! ;)

Adriane! Wow. She doesn't look any different. What about her sister? Was it Allison? I always had the hots for her. Of course I'm engaged now, but one can reminice, can't he?

Carol said...

that's so wonderful that you have friends who are going to do the nursery for you. It must seem wierd to not do it yourself - but what a wonderful surprise it will be when you finally get to go home and see your nursery all perfect and ready for you!

I didn't get to help fix up my nursery either. It made me sad, but that was okay. I've had planty of time since then to move things around, and really I've ended up re-organizing things several times the last year. So you'll get your chance! Never fear!

Miss K said...

I check your blog daily - I absolutely love your sense of humor and the positive energy that you are putting out into the universe. You totally got me today with this post - I was like "WHAT . . she is supposed to be in the hospital!!". You are good! It is not even April 1st!

Joni said...

Yep, I was freaking out too. "She is supposed to be in bed!!!" I'm glad you're doing so well and still having fun with your friends. Praying for at least 2 more weeks!!!! Good luck with the insulin shots...

I talked with Joe at church yesterday, and told him that Karen and I had made a big mistake when we took your blog address last week. He kinda looked at me like "what". Then I explained that it has become addictive to find out the next installment of your humor and wit. He just laughed and immediately understood what I ment.

Keep up the positive engery, and grow those babies! We are praying for you all.

triplet mama said...

Too funny! Glad to hear you are still in good spirits. Woo-hoo for 26 weeks tomorrow. Keep it up girl!

Dallas said...

I have called your hospital room several rooms, but haven't gotten a hold of you. Is it a bad time to come out? Marty and I would love to see you, but don't want to come when you're all worn out.

Just email me and let me know!

We are praying for you! Dallas

Corrie said...

You forgot to mention that SHILOH will certainly be helping with the decorating of her new brothers' and sister's rooms! :) When Joe takes pictures make sure we get to see some too!

Nate, Maurine, & Hannah said...

I was like-- WHAT!! She's out of the hospital and didn't text me!! You got me! So glad Lori and Cely got to come see you! Congrats on 26! Love Mo

brad said...

Please, I knew right away. I've been keen to her hijinks for 11 years. She's never gotten one by me, he said fecetiously . And then wondered if he spelled that anywhere close to being right.

Suz,
You are so truly blessed with wonderful friends and family that love you and you seem to bless all of those around you as well!
Yay for 26 weeks!!!!!
:)

Jody and Janell said...

We are praying for you. I was only on hospital bedrest for two weeks, but it seriously seemed longer than that! IT IS WORTH IT! YOU ARE GONNA DO GREAT! Know that prayers are coming your way! Insulin shots.....bummer, but we are all cheering you on!

Melissa Mullinax said...

You don't know me...found your blog through a friend of mine who has triplets. :D I hope you don't mind me reading.

I gave your name to Ruth Williams (she is a photographer friend of mine in TX) Hoping to see some beautiful pictures one of these days or four gorgeous babies!!
Until then just keep on cookin'!! You are doing an awesome job!!

Take care and keep going strong!! You can do it. :)

All the best from Kansas,

~Melissa Mullinax

Audrey T said...

What sweet friends you have! And 26 weeks - way to go!

Is that a picture of you with the insulin shot? I'm kinda thinking not...

Stef~ said...

you "almost" had me going... I was getting ready to pick up the phone and call every hospital in Texas and find those nurses who let you out of your room... he he.. Just kidding!

What great friends you have to sit with you!! If I lived in TX I would come sit with you too.. how weird would that be for you to sit with a total stranger.. that alone could make you go into labor...

Sounds like Melissa Mullinax is going to set you up with a great photographer.. TAKE ADVANTAGE of that one!! She only knows the best of the best! She won't let you down!!

Great Job.. keep going!

Granna said...

I don't know you- but have been checking in from time to time. I am praying that all of you do well, and that the babies stay put for a few more weeks! Can't wait for the next update. Granna in Alabama.

Amanda's News said...

You are so fortunate to have such good friends helping out:) I know the nursery will look amazing!!! When I read the first part of your blog I thought did they let her out for an evening on the town?? Then realized you were just day dreaming a story:) I love your attitude and positive spirit. Those babies are so lucky to have a mom like you!

Jenny said...

You don't know me, but I found your blog after reading the blog of one of my friends (Leah Hunt). I really enjoyed reading your blogs and I pray that the rest of your pregnancy will go as long as possible and that your beautiful quads will be perfectly healthy.

brad said...

You don't know me, but I read your blog and your belly's huge!

Jamie's Crew said...

I hope that you are having a great day! Just thinking of you and your 4 huggable babies!

I really enjoy reading your post & I'm excited to see pictures of the babies when they come. You will all be home before you know it. I understand how much you miss your puppy dog (I'm a dog lover too) .... God bless. You're still in my prayers.

Suz,

Thanks for answering my questions on your blog. You seen truly blessed to have such great friends and a loving church family. Can you see yourself driving a big conversion van or hoping for a bigger SUV? The hardest thing I ever did was trade in the SUV for a van. You look great, Can't wait to see the nursery pics. Keep smiling you are almost to the finale.
