20 weeks

20 weeks

Sunday marked twenty weeks…halfway already! And whoa…this baby is growing, growing, growing…or else my tummy just knows what to do after three babies already. I’m feeling fine besides always thinking I need a nap. But I’m pretty sure that is just part of being a mama, right? I am feeling lots of bubbles and flutters…this baby feels like a mover already. And I think the boys will be able to feel some little kicks soon too…they will be so excited. Griffin has started praying for the baby every night. If we forget he makes sure to let us know. So sweet. And Levi came with me to my last appointment to hear the baby’s heartbeat. He has been begging to come along and it was so special watching his face as he heard that little heartbeat for the first time. My sonogram is next week and we are still holding strong…it’s going to be a surprise! We can’t wait to meet this little one.

  • Ali - I love that you’re holding strong, but if you decide not to…don’t feel bad about it! Just continue praying and you’ll know what’s best for you. I’ll never forget the post on your last sonogram & it was so similar to my story. It really helped me. God bless you and your family & Congrats!!! 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Sharee - I’ve been reading your blog for a while and I love it. You are so uplifting and so so crafty! I just (9 months ago is just right?) had my final number 4 and despite multiple ultrasounds we stayed strong and waited! While we would have been thrilled with a baby girl, I think it made the surprise of a baby boy that much more exciting. I feel bad saying that. We really would have loved 4 girls! Anyway, I’m happy for you and look forward to new blogs!ReplyCancel

  • Tara Taylor - I have one biological child and did not find out the gender while pregnant. My beautiful daughter turns 15 tomorrow and I still feel not finding out was the best ever. The excitement of hearing the doctor tell my husband and I “it’s a girl” was crazy, crazy. Deep down I thought she was a boy, but even deeper, I was hoping for a girl. Congrats to you and your family.ReplyCancel

  • babykatesmom - Congratulations on reaching the halfway mark! Your belly is adorable & I love that Levi got to go with you to hear the heartbeat – what a special Big Brother thing to do!
    Take care! Praying for your family from Florida 🙂ReplyCancel

  • creole wisdom - Could you be any cuter? How exciting Baby #4’s birthday will be 🙂 A second daughter or third son will be just the perfect addition.ReplyCancel

  • Toni :0) - Love the update. We didn’t know for either of our children until the day of arrival and I can tell you, it’s really awesome to wait. I loved being able to say the baby is here and it’s a “Boy” or it’s a “Girl!” Best surprise ever!! Prayers always sent your way. God bless! xoxoReplyCancel

  • Mary Ann - You are such a beautiful mama….I’m excited to see what your baby will be – boy or girl – it is great that you are going to be surprised and what a wonderful surprise it will be. Me and my husband adopted our son, our only child when he was 15 days old. I got the call at my work that Child and Family Services had a little baby for us. So, we didn’t know until that day whether we would get a boy or a girl. He was and still is the light of my life. He and his darling wife had my grandson almost 4 years ago. I feel so blessed to be a grandmother. It is a dream come true. My husband passed away only 18 short months before Braxton was born. I think my husband knows about Braxton and is looking down from heaven with a smile on his face knowing he’s a grandpa and happy that we are taking good care of his grandson.ReplyCancel

  • Megan - Congrats on the half way mark!!! I have been a long time reader but changed computers and lost a lot of my bookmarked blogs, then one day you popped into my mind and I thought “I wonder if she is pregnant again?” so I Googled your blog and you had just made the announcement a few posts before! So excited for you guys! And I totally agree with the comment above … I will never forget your post after sweet Griffin’s ultrasound. It was so beautiful and open and relatable. I’m excited to see what you are having and pray any anxiety you both face will be swept away by peace from God. He already know what it is, after all. 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Melissa Joy - Beautiful, Jess, truly. I would have been 16 weeks if my little girl had lived… and looking at your belly makes me cry… but actually for good reasons. I’m praying for you and your lovely family!ReplyCancel

  • Amanda - I have been following your blog for a long time now but I have never commented before. I think you are amazing! Your boys are so cute and such fun to follow. Congrats on the new little one on the way.ReplyCancel

  • Sarah W. - You look great! Isn’t it crazy how we show so much faster each time around and how fast the time flies! I wish I was strong enough to wait and have a surprise at the birth too… at first I thought I could… I couldn’t. I’m so excited for your growing family!ReplyCancel
