About Me

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!

Baby M 15wks and first belly pic!

Well, here it is finally! 15wks Belly Pic. I know I look big as a boat already, but, I am carrying high, and it makes me look bigger than I am. My mom can't hush about the pink fever. Everyone has been making their guesses on what the sex will be of Baby M, but, to us, as long as they are healthy, that is all that matters. I am kind of hoping in the back of my mind that this is a girl, only because we have the name picked out for a girl, and are not anywhere near agreeing on a name for a boy. Since I know not that many people read this, I will go ahead and blab out the girl's name we have picked out. So, I hope no one out there that is preggers now, steals this name. Drum roll please..... Hayleigh Antonetta McCann for a girl. Allen and I have always liked the name Hayleigh, and Antonetta is my middle name, and my Grandma Weidner's middle name. I am the only one out of my mom's huge catholic family that has my grandma's middle name. All I can tell you is that if it is a boy, it will have Allen's middle name, which is Allen... his first name is really Jack, but he is the third, and goes by Allen. We are definately not going to have Jack Allen McCann the fourth.

I am feeling great, sometimes it seems like I swell up like a balloon, and others, I am not soo big. I have been trying to pay attention more to myself lately.. just anxiously waiting to feel Baby M move for the first time. I know it is coming soon, I just want to realize that is what it actually is when it happens. My nose is the only thing other than growing pains giving me fits. My nose is either stuffy or dry, it cannot make up it's mind. I still get sick if I gag good enough, and make my stomach do a flip. I really miss my strong tummy! It doesn't take much for my nose to make me gag, and then it is on! Apples are still my most favorite craved food right now. I could spend a whole meal on a fruit buffet I swear! My next visit to the doctor is next Friday, Feb. 5th. I am probably going by myself for that one. They will do the usual, check my weight.. sigh... blood pressure, and fetal heartbeat with the fetal doppler. I will also be going to the lab for this visit for my second trimester blood testing. I am not looking forward to that at all really... the blood with the needle part. I have really been watching what I eat, so, hopefully I am not putting on the pounds.

This is all still surreal to me. I get in the bath tub, it keeps getting smaller and smaller.. I just look at my tummy - the only part that has grown on me besides my boobs and hips spreading out, and I just sometimes think, "ohh, I am just getting fat".. kind of forgeting about the whole baby that is growing in me that is now the size of an apple. I really think this will keep on until I finally feel Baby M move.

Anyway, here is the clip once again from Baby Center on what Baby M is up to now..

Your growing baby now measures about 4 inches long, crown to rump, and weighs in at about 2 1/2 ounces (about the size of an apple). She's busy moving amniotic fluid through her nose and upper respiratory tract, which helps the primitive air sacs in her lungs begin to develop. Her legs are growing longer than her arms now, and she can move all of her joints and limbs. Although her eyelids are still fused shut, she can sense light. If you shine a flashlight at your tummy, for instance, she's likely to move away from the beam. There's not much for your baby to taste at this point, but she is forming taste buds. Finally, if you have an ultrasound this week, you may be able to find out whether your baby's a boy or a girl! (Don't be too disappointed if it remains a mystery, though. Nailing down your baby's sex depends on the clarity of the picture and on your baby's position. He or she may be modestly curled up or turned in such a way as to "hide the goods.")
