18 Weeks

Well, I have to say......I am feeling quite pregnant these days. Backaches, swelling, indigestion and nosebleeds (weird, I know) are a part of everyday now. Also, my sweet baby boy has moved under my right rib (not his fault, there is only so much room). I had such a ridiculously wonderful 1st half of pregnancy......I kinda deserve this.

Our furry babies made the pic this week. Everybody tells me that they become like 2nd class citzens once you have babies (I hope not). Tido is the big guy. We got him when we were dating in college, hes an old man. Georgia (Gorgeous George to me) ,the cute little English Bulldog, had her 1st birthday last week. HAPPY BIRTHDAY GEORGIA!!!!!!!

How far along? 18 weeks

How big are babies? they are the size of a sweet potato. Aunt Spencer loves sweet potatos!

Weight gain? not sure......but I'm growing.

Stretchmarks? not yet :)

Maternity clothes? Oh yes! Some regular dresses still fit, but mostly maternity.

Best moment of the week? Ben's 1st time feeling movement!!!!! Ben could feel one of the girls moving around from the outside on Saturday. It was awesome to watch his face and finally be able to share what I have been feeling for the past few weeks. It was a little more emotional than I thought it would be.

Food cravings? I ate chicken!!! A kickin chicken sandwich from Zaxbys. So it seems that if you smother chicken in hot sauce and Ranch and put it between two pieces of texas toast....I can get protein for my babies. (Not sure how the health benefits weight out on this one). I am loving all the fresh fruit that comes along this time of year.

Gender? A boy and two girls

Movement? I can tell when our boy moves around because he up so high in my stomach. I have a harder time telling the girls apart.

What I miss? just being comfortable

Belly button? Innie but its going to streched flat soon

What I'm looking forward to? My anatomy scan on Thursday

Milestone? Ben feeling the babies from the outside


  1. Lookin good Lil Momma! Sorry your feet are so swollen...take care of you! Tell Georgia Happy Birthday from Marley and Gonzo! Marley also wants to give a special shout-out to Tido...she will never forget her first love! :)

    Ryan and I miss y'all! LOVES to ya!

  2. You look so pretty. Get a big bucket or mixing bowl of water with some ice cubes and put those feet and hands in if they start hurting. It works and takes some swelling out. :) You're doing a great job.

  3. Lucy Goose, you look AMAZING!! I'm coming home either this weekend, next weekend, or both. I WILL be coming to see you and Benny boy AND THE BABIES!!

    Love you!

  4. Aww Lucy!! You are so darn cute. Isn't it amazing when you feel the babies move? I still get excited every time. We need to get together soon!
