20 Week Update

How many weeks? I am 20 weeks!!  Half way there!!


How am I feeling?  I’m feeling great!  I am feeling more confident with my pregnancy these days and trying to enjoy it.

Doctor’s Appointment? No appointments this week.

Weight Gain? 10 lbs.

Baby Preparation?  Still haven’t pulled the trigger on the baby bedding or the crib.  I’m sure it will happen soon though!

What I Miss?  I miss running and sleeping on my stomach so much!  I am sleeping pretty good these days though, thanks to my Body Boppy Pillow!  Love that thing!



  1. you look gorgeous!!! radiant!!! so glad that things are going well. (((hugs)))

    A is sitting here with me- she is looking at the pic of Seven on your sidebar and said she wants that puppy dog soooo badly and has never seen a cuter dog!

  2. You look adorable! I love your top!

  3. Great, can't wait for Allison to say she wants the Baby Body Boppy pillow... :) You look awesome, kiddo!

  4. You are just glowing Lauren! I loved my pillow too. I called him Phil :)

  5. Lauren, you look amazing. I'm glad ya'll had such a relaxing Christmas. Love to you!

  6. I miss sleeping on my tummy too. It's funny because I don't do it a whole lot but being told you can't makes you want to even more. You look great and I am so excited for you to be feeling good.

  7. Woo hoo! 20 Weeks! You look so cute!

  8. I'm so happy things are going look super cute!!!

    I am not a stomach sleeper, but when I was pregnant I would have paid someone $1,000 just to be able to do it! So I can't imagine how much you must miss it.

    Don't worry though because once she's born, you won't be sleeping on your stomach, side or back (unless it's a catnap beside Taylor's crib, or napping while holding her on your lap, the list goes on and on) - can't wait to hear all the adventures :)

  9. you look beautiful & I can't wait to see the nursery!!

    Take it easy & get lots of rest!!

  10. You are radiant Lauren! Healthy, expecting & happy what a way to start out the new year! I'm overjoyed for you & Josh! :)

  11. Cheers to 20 wonderful weeks!!! You will place that order when you are ready :)

    Have a wonderful NEW YEAR, as its filled with the promise of GOD's favor.

    Much Love and Prayers Always

  12. you look beautiful. i just found this blog tonight and read up on it and i probably could of filled a cup with my tears. Your amazing and your Green Beans are very beautiful. (im so sorry for the loss)...

    Congratulations on your 20 weeks!!!! Now that i've found this blog of you and your family i will be visting you daily. Hope you and yours have a very blessed an amazing New Year.

  13. Hi Lauren, I've been reading your blog awhile, not sure how I stumbled onto it, but just wanted to say i'm really happy to hear everything is going so well, so glad to hear the anxiety isn't overwhelming you as it so easily could. You look fantastic!! I just wanted to post a sleeping sack that you might want to check out seen as you guys like them. I really think this has helped my baby sleep SO much, I just wish I had of had one when my oldest daughter was born. If you google "Love me baby swaddle" it will come up. It's an aussie company, and although I am an aussie I have no affliation to it at all, I just reckon it's awesome! Happy New Year.

  14. I hadn't checked in in awhile, I'm SO excited for you!! Congratulations, you deserve it!! Oh, and you look GREAT! You'll be in my thoughts and prayers for a long, healthy pregnancy. God Bless!

    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.
