It's been a while since I've updated everyone on our growing life. Growing at this point means so much! Ha!

I completely forgot to do a 16 week post. Some call it baby brain, I call it being in a whirlwind and being pulled 150,000 different ways! Work, Shopping, Studying, Taking Tests, Work, EATING!, Sleeping, Peeing, Picking out cribs, Strollers, Car Seats, Work, EATING! Okay, you get the picture.

So here's the shortened version of our 16th week:

  • Weight Gain: 8 lbs. so far - it probably should be more, but since I was so sick for the first 14 weeks I think this is great! So does my doctor. He wants me to reserve the majority of the weight gain when I'm farther along. No complaints from me (or Justin, I'm sure) since that's about 50 more pounds.

  • I measure a month ahead so at this particular appointment I measured 20 weeks instead of 16! haha! Dr. Y said I'll be huge! Thanks dude. I guess when we're in St. Augustine the end of May (25 weeks) I'll probably look 35 weeks which means definitely no swimsuit attire. Don't worry I'm not the person that thinks its attractive to be in a 2 piece when you're THAT pregnant anyway. Unless of course it's our backyard and no one can see the beached whale.

  • I'm feeling so much better! I haven't been sick in about 2 weeks (Hooray!) Still exhausted

  • I'm eating better and current cravings are: Apple Pie - still, yummy grilled chicken salads. Food No No's: Onions, peppers, pickles, tomatoes and any kind of tomato sauce (if I eat pizza they aren't allowed to put sauce on it

  • We ordered our cribs! I fell in love with them the moment I saw it at like 5 weeks pregnant! I'm so glad Justin loved them, too!

Bratt Decor Venetian Iron Crib in Pewter! Imagine 2 of these beautiful things! ahh
16 weeks

16 weeks 4 days

17 Weeks:

This past Sunday I left for a week long Vegas WORK trip. Being in Vegas for a week isn't ideal - especially when you're pregnant and know that you will be sitting in meetings from 7-5:30 and then have to go to a dinner until about 9 ish. Let's just say it was a long week! Thank goodness someone in corporate headquarters felt sorry me and gave me my own room! It was SO nice! I thought for sure I would gain LOTS of weight this week. I mean I would be sitting around trying to stay awake so obviously I would be eating a lot. Not. The. Case! The food was terrible! Oh well, sweet hubby packed me lots of snacks for the week in my carry on! He wants BIG boys! Not to much to update on other than bump pics I guess! Sorry in advance, apparently the only thing to do in Vegas while pregnant and staying in a room alone is take pictures of yourself to send your husband so he'll know how big the boys are.... and mommy!

17 Weeks!

17 weeks! They grew overnight

We'll be staying in this weekend so I can catch up on sleep! Oh and one more thing. Daddy went out and bought the boys the sweetest polo seersucker outfits while I was gone! I can't even get him to go to the mall with me, I guess anything for the boys these days though! Love all 4 of my boys so much .... that includes King!


  1. SO glad you're growing! Four boys! That's a lot :)
    Definitely glad your back SO we can get back to regular chats vs mini chats! :) Ugh! :)
