Week 18 and My 29th Birthday!

Week 18 and My 29th Birthday!

The picture above was taken last night on my 29th Birthday. Saturday the babies turned 18 weeks and I feel as if my stomach grew over night. Maybe in my next blog post I'll do a 17 week vs.18 week photo like I did last week. It's pretty nuts when you compare weeks, you can totally see a difference. As you can see Buddy was following me around and would lay down next to me the moment I stopped moving. He gave me a good laugh :)

Below is a picture of my Belly with clothes on :) This is from Sunday right before I went to Chevy's for my Birthday dinner with my Mom, her friend Anita and Billy. Unfortunately I was having an allergy attack and couldn't stop sneezing. Allergies have been KICKING MY ASS!!!! Nothing is working, pollen is freakin EVERYWHERE. 

Here is another belly shot from this weekend. I still can't believe how fast my stomach is growing. It's blowing my mind.

So for my birthday Billy got me a Nook. I'm super excited and can't wait to learn how to use it. He thought it would be great for me if I got put on bed rest :) Which I totally agree! I also asked for a Sonoline B Pocket Fetal Doppler recommended by my friend Erin Gay who is also pregnant too at the moment. I was so excited that my In Laws got it for me I could not wait to bust it out and find some heart beats :) 

Below is a picture of me trying to find a heartbeat. It's not as easy as my doctor made it look at my last appointment. But I am getting the hang of it. Please click on this link to hear one of the babies heat beats :)
I couldn't locate the video because I just uploaded it so it's not coming in on the search options, So I couldn't post it here directly.


  1. So exciting to hear the baby's heartbeat!! I can't believe how huge your belly has grown lately, keep up the good work Mama!!
    Love to all 4 of you!!

  2. What a cool thing to have to really bond with the babies before they are here. I used to put my book on my belly. Jen and Laurette used to kick it off. So that is how I bonded just the sign of the times. Thank you for doing this so I don't have to keep asking people how you are doing. Take care sweetie and I will keep you in my daily prayers.
    Love you,
