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!

13 weeks and counting!

I know to some, this is pretty boring, reading about my week by week milestones. But, this is all coming from a person who has waited for this for a long time, and now that it is finally here, it does not take much to get me excited about the baby coming now! So, with that said, here is my 13 wk Baby Center Your Pregnancy at 13 wks bit:

How your baby's growing:
Fingerprints have formed on your baby's tiny fingertips, her veins and organs are clearly visible through her still-thin skin, and her body is starting to catch up with her head — which makes up just a third of her body size now. If you're having a girl, she now has more than 2 million eggs in her ovaries. Your baby is almost 3 inches long (the size of a medium shrimp) and weighs nearly an ounce.

It just amazes both Allen and I on how fast the baby is growing! We both love to read this every Monday, since I will not be able to feel the baby move just yet. I finally got my book I ordered on 100,000 baby names in the mail on Saturday, along with the Pregnancy magazine I had ordered the morning we found out we were pregnant... boy they don't get in any sort of a hurry! I would have hated for them to wait a few more months!

I know at the last doctor's appointment, Allen was a little disappointed that we didn't get to see anything. He is mainly used to the visits to Dr. Gentry, where they would whip out that stupid ultrasound wand for every visit. It was nice to get to "see" the baby though, instead of just hearing the heartbeat.
