19 weeks

Time for another comparison!! Here's me 8 months pregnant with Hailey....

Now 19 weeks (almost 5 months) preggo with the Quads!

Things are still going pretty well! Had a couple small contractions this weekend, but nothing hydration and relaxation couldn't cure! :) I've gained 30 lbs so far, it's just piling up while I'm on bed rest. Some days I think "man, I should've eaten more", but when I look back at all I did eat that day, it's far more than I usually do! My feet have started swelling quite a bit more and way more easily so it's been fine with me to keep them elevated. The doctors did give me some exercises to do to keep up my circulation. I've also started creating a list:

Best and Worst of Bed Rest
Best -
Get to sleep in
Piling on the pounds
Relaxing on the couch/bed all day
Watching the babies move all day
Having time to catch up and get organized

Worst -
Have to sleep downstairs - Nich does tuck me in at night though! :)
Messy house and can't do much about it
Daytime Television

Luckily I have the MOST AMAZING husband who is Dad, Mom, Breadwinner, Chef and Cleaner all in one! I continually thank him for yet the 30th refill of my water bottle and ice cream :).

We also had a couple great showers over the past couple days, a HUGE thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your generosity, support and constant encouragement!
