My husband, Allen, and I are high school sweet hearts. We started dating Sep.99'- I kind of followed Allen home one day, and never did leave, is Allen's story. November 02' we were engaged, and on November 22,2003 - we were married. Having been married for 6 years in 2009, marked the 5th year we had been trying to start our family. With the referral of a Fertility Specialist from a friend, our IUI attempts ended up being a complete success despite my doubts. We welcomed our sweet little girl, Hayleigh into the world on June 30,2010 at 6:28am after 37wks and 1 day of gestation. She weighed 7lbs 14oz and was 20 in long. We found out that we were Baby #2 on April Fool's Day- a complete surprise! Reid Allen was born 11/13/12 3:24am 9lbs 8.2oz 21", after 38wks 5 days. Our 3rd baby, Eva Jane, was born on April 19, 2015 after suffering a pregnancy loss June of 2014. We are currently anxiously awaiting baby #4 due 2 days before Eva's birthday, so we are having Irish Twins! Our family is so blessed and happy to be growing!

6 weeks!

Well, slowly but surely, I am getting further and further along with the babies. Today they should be the size of a lentil bean.. about a 1/4 of an inch. I am really feeling the fatigue of pregnancy, I could lounge around all day, and be just fine. I have been eating the absolute healthiest I can.. I just have to watch acidic stuff and carbonated drinks.. I swell like a hot air balloon. Other than that, I feel great, and I am really enjoying being pregnant!

As of now, I think most of everyone we could tell the news to has been told already. My sister suggested that we wait until we were 3 months along.. who can really wait for that?? Anyway, Saturday, we visited my Grandma and Grandpa Travous, who already knew - my dad has been keeping them updated. I kind of knew better than to get my hopes up about how my Grandparents would react.. I think if I had the ability to walk on water, it would be just an ordinary thing. So, when you are about to tell your grandparents.. with whom you was one of only two grand kids to them until a few years ago, that they are going to be Great Grandparents.. one would think they should be just a little but excited or at least... happy?? We no more than walked in their house, and Grandpa did not say a word the whole time... Grandma wanted to discuss Ruth, my aunt's adopted 3 yr old daughter, whom is named for my Grandma. Big Surprise!! I had to be too nice too.. they were not doing anything for Thanksgiving, and since my dad and his wife are coming over Thanksgiving night, I went ahead and extended the invite to them as well. It wouldn't be as bad I guess, IF, throughout the 3 years we have lived in our house.. a mere 2 miles away from my grandparents, they have yet to come and visit. They are able to get around just fine, so, I have never figured out what the reason was behind all of this. Ohh, well, no use in worrying about anything that I cannot change. I guess my family on my dad's side is just not close at all, and it makes everything really awkward. I just hope for the sake of the babies coming, that people can act a little bit more happy and excited to see them someday.. we all know that day will be here sooner than we know it. So, that is my rant and rave from the weekend.

In other news, Sunday, was our 6 year wedding anniversary.. couldn't have had any better of a gift than finding out we were going to be parents! I really think this is the happiest that I have really been in a really long time. I think that both Allen and I really both feel this way. Our lives are changing in a really dramatic way, and our lives are never going to be the same again. No more just taking off to go wherever, whenever...we will have other priorities to keep in mind now.
