Good Morning!

Well, I am 18 weeks today!  Still not anywhere close enough to having viable babies, but I am still making good progress.  Each day seems long, but overall the weeks come and go pretty quickly.  Like Josh mentioned on his blog this morning, he has left for work, so today is my first day alone in my room.  I will have some visitors this afternoon, and I plan to keep busy by attempting to start working again.  I am all set up to work remotely from my room, and I think it will be good for my mind. 

Breakfast was gross this morning, so I supplemented with 3 bowls of cereal and a banana!  I'm feeling good now that I have some food in me, so I am off to go take a shower and get ready for the day!


  1. Congrats on the 18 weeks. Enjoy your day. If you get bored give us a call on the house line. We are only doing school :)

  2. 18 weeks, yay...getting closer day by day. Good Luck today, I'll be thinking about ya!

  3. Baby B says she wants a snack.

  4. Man I wish I was pregnant with quads so I had an excuse to eat 3 bowls of cereal. Sadly I'm just obese! Keep feedin' them chillin's!

  5. You are doing a great job Lauren. Keep eating, resting and throw a little work in to keep yourself busy (at least that is what I did). If you need anything, even just an ear to vent to, just send me an email and I will give you my cell phone number. Us quad mom's are rooting for you and your beautiful babies. Hang in there sweetie.


  6. Yeah on getting to 18weeks! I know the hospital is boring & the food sucks, but before long you will be waaayyy pass 24 weeks, marching on to 30 weeks! You are doing so awesome!
    Call or email me if you need anything! Take care,

  7. I wish we lived closer and I would come hang out with you. May the days go by really fast until all four of those babies are here safely!

  8. I hope you a have a great day of eating, showering, eating,

    just kidding about the eating!!

    Give us a call if you want anything.

  9. 18 weeks! You're doing great, Lauren. I'm praying for you and your babies~ I'm on the Sonlight forums and found you through Traci. :o) Hang in there through those yucky hospital breakfasts! (Yay for cereal, huh?)

  10. I've been thinking about you constantly...even though I haven't called, just know that!

    Love you,

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
