You Know You’re 9 Months Pregnant When…

- You’re out of breath from just sitting still

- Even your shoes are getting tight

- You lose all ability to concentrate on anything non-baby

- Your belly stretches further than you could ever imagine

- You start to outgrow maternity clothes

- You find out bras come in size “E”

  - You begin to wonder if your body will ever go back to the way it was before

  - Commercials and movie trailers make your cry

  - Your favorite place to hang out is in the baby’s room looking at his/her clothes

- It feels like there is an 8 pound baby’s head resting on your bladder.  (Oh, wait that’s TRUE!)


- There is no such thing as a “comfortable chair”

- The meaning of lingerie is now maternity bras

- You get up 4 to 5 times at night to use the bathroom

- Your husband’s size large T-shirts actually fit


Just making a little fun out of being 9 months pregnant.  While all of this is true, I wouldn’t trade it for the world!  I’m so thankful to be experiencing this part of pregnancy and realize that each day is a gift from God.

    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.
