Weekend Update

Well, I've made it to 20 weeks!  I don't want to celebrate that too much, because I still have a ways to go, and I desperately don't want anything else to happen.  I am feeling good, and getting plenty of rest.  As you can see, Josh is making sure I am fed every 3 hours or so.  Every time I step on my scale, it seems that I've gained another pound or two. This is what 22 pounds gained and a 40" waist looks like! :)   I'm doing this for you B, C, and D!  

I ask that you all continue to pray that we can all hang on for at least another month, and hopefully much longer than that!


  1. Holy cuteness! What a good job you're doing Mama!

  2. Other people's pregnancies always go by so much faster...I can't believe you're already twenty weeks! You look fabulous!

  3. You look AWESOME!!! I think about you often! I have a care package to send your way if your interested! :) Praying for you!

  4. I am praying that you will deliver around or after me (MAY)!!!!!!!!! You look so cute!

  5. You look wonderful! And congrats on making 20 weeks! We will pray vehemently for 10 more weeks!!!

  6. Hi Lauren!
    I have been reading your family blogs for a few weeks and just wanted to say Hi.
    I am sorry you lost your sweet baby A. I know it must be a tough time for you all.
    I think it is a wonderful miracle your other three "greenbeans" are doing so well and look forward to checking each day to see how you are all doing.
    Best of luck and I hope the next 10 weeks are uneventful!

  7. What a cute picture! Keep up the good work.

  8. You look wonderful, congrats on the 20 weeks! I know you'll make it much, much longer.

  9. Glad to see you smiling, looking good! Hey if you need some size 40 dress pants, come on over and try mine on. Sure you'll look like a guy but they're silky smooth! :)

  10. Damn woman! How is it you are on bedrest and still look like a million bucks? Could your smiler be any brighter? All 5 of you are in our daily thoughts and prayers. Y&S.

    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.
