  1. I hate those type of things sometimes! LOL :P there were questions that were asked at least three times! :P LOL Interesting though! :D

  2. Man, I had already gained about 20 pounds by the time I was 25 weeks, look at you and your tiny 12 pound gain. I'm totally jealous. And I didn't start getting stretch marks on my belly until I was about 32 or 34 weeks, but hopefully you can get by without them.

    Anyway, cool info. :)

  3. Erika- Ha. I haven't even done the math yet. I tried to forget that I was gaining weight. What the heck?! 12 pounds?!! REALLY?!?! Dang ittttttttttt.

  4. Hey! Gaining weight is all because you have a cute little baby growing in there! at least you aren't gaining weight that fast because of eating a lot of junk food or something... (you know what I mean... at least I hope you do! :D) Anyways... Besides.. Stef. You are in crazy wonderful shape! :D My mom didn't gain a lot of weight when she was pregnant with my sisters... in fact she kind of lost weight in a way..(I know doesn't make sense at all! :P) It was good for her! You are such a skiny-mini! It is crazy! And again you look way cute pregnant I have to say! LOL :D

  5. Cute new background!

    This was a really fun post. I love that I got to learn a few new things about you. Nic sings? And you were born in New York (NY, FL, UT; you guys were on the move!)
    Olivia and Bradshaw will share a room...and right now it's very boyish but we are definitely decorating it for Olivia but we are still brainstorming.
    And you are still wearing your regular clothes! Wow! Lucky. And embarassing but true, the amount you've gained in your whole pregnancy, I gained between one doctor's appt and another. Yikes--and I was eating super healthy. =(
    Anyway, you've gained nothing but baby. And, gosh, she's a perfect little one. =)

  6. Well, Nic sang to music? Ha. In the car. Let's just say he's better at singing to music than me.
    My dad was in the military. So we moved around a lot. My oldest sister was born in SLC, then my dad was stationed in Germany and that's where Erika and Katrina were born, then we moved to Arizona and RuthAnn was born there, then New York and I was born there, Kimberly was born in Virginia, then we moved to Kansas, Washington state, Florida, then Utah.
    And if she comes out resembling a cheeseburger, I am SORRY. I just can't help myself to fastfood. I'm sure when I'm Virginia you'll be shoving healthy food for me down my throat. I'm okay with that. :]
