27 Week Update

How many weeks? I am 27 weeks!  I can’t believe I am saying this, but I only have about 12 weeks to go!  I can’t wait to meet my little Tay Tay!

27.2 (3) - Copy

How am I feeling?   I’m still feeling really good!  I rest when I get tired or know I’ve overdone it, I keep hydrated to prevent feeling badly and sleep a lot.  At the end of a busy day I get some Braxton Hicks and back pain, but I know that’s normal. 

I am feeling Taylor move all the time.  She gets hiccups often and I’m starting to recognize her sleep and awake times. 

Doctor’s Appointment? Not until this Friday.  This is the longest I’ve gone without an OB appointment.  I’m looking forward to seeing Taylor on the ultrasound and getting an update on how I’m doing.   Hoping and praying for a good cervix measurement. 

Weight Gain? 16 pounds.

Baby Preparation?  Baby prep is in full force around here.  Daycare – check!  Registered – check!  Nursery design underway – check!  I cannot wait to see Josh with his baby girl.  He loves kids so much and wants to be a hands on Dad as much as I want to be a Mommy.  Josh has his baby Bjorn ready and plans to be with Taylor every chance he gets! 

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

    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.
