Pregnancy Update

I haven't written much about my pregnancy with #3 yet. Half the time I forget that I am pregnant, since Adam & Matthew keep me so busy! I feel like this third baby will just be added to the mix, and hopefully that will be a positive thing. I am hoping I will be more laid back and able to enjoy babyhood. I am so looking forward to nursing one baby at a time. Of course I am also nervous about adding a baby to a sometimes already crazy house!
This pregnancy has been harder than my first. Probably because I am chasing the twin tornadoes around. I was extrememly tired the first 14 weeks. But I used it as an excuse to take it easy and snuggle with my boys. The house got messy, and we went out to eat more, but we survived :) I remember being lazy during my twin pregnancy, but somehow the house wasn't quite as messy. I was a little more nauseous with this one during the first trimester, and much more picky about what I ate. VERY picky. Only one thing at a time really sounded good to me, and often it was different for breakfast, lunch and dinner. My nausea started getting a lot better around 12 weeks, and my energy returned around 14-15 weeks (finally). I also had stressful issues I didn't have last time. I spotted quite a bit during weeks 5-8. I was sure I was going to miscarry, but the baby hung on. Then later I thought I was leaking amniotic fluid (of course my mind goes to worst case), but that was a false alarm.

4 Weeks - Still "showing" some from the twins :P
On the balcony overlooking the Smokey Mountains in Gatlinburg, TN where we found out.
I felt the baby move for the first time at 14 weeks. I know it was the baby, and felt it off and on for the the next few weeks. I am 17 weeks now, and I feel the baby move pretty often. It is so neat :) I can't wait until baby gets a little stronger, and we can start seeing the kicks and feeling them from the outside. We find out the gender in a little over 2 weeks, and we are both so so excited to find out. I think most people know I would love a girl, but we are also okay with a houseful of boys. We are done after this one, so this little one will complete our family, no matter what the gender. 
16 Weeks - Tiny Bump!
Adam & Matthew love babies. Everything small or tiny is a baby. A tiny blueberry.. "Baby!" Tiny grape.. "baby!." Tiny ball of playdough.."Baby!". And always with a squeaky, high pitched voice. Then the normal size fruits/objects become "Momma". They know where Mommy is growing their little brother and sister, and I think they understand that baby will move into the nursery across from their room. I showed them a video of a 15-20 week baby developing in utero, and Adam understood right away. He pointed to the video, then my belly, while repeating "Baby, baby." Matthew sort of got it, but he also pointed to his own belly as well and said, "baby" :P
Alan's nickname for the baby is "Little Feti" but thankfully he hasn't nicknamed by belly (yet).
16 Weeks

I am Mariam used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes...i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Priests Irumole); he does not advertise on the internet, has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps
for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn't mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I'm sure any help/ extra work will benefit him as He travel sometimes.i cant give out his number cos he told me he don’t want to be disturbed by many people across the world..he said his email is okay and he’ will replied to any emails asap,love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,HIV AIDS,it's all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something
