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!

Over doing it... me? Never! Well... okay, yesterday, I might have over done it just a tad. With Allen on his way home yesterday, I decided that I would take care of some of the house chores that he has been doing for the few weeks that I had been sick, since now, I am feeling a whole lot better. Well, superwoman here, thought she had all of her get up and go from before pregnancy, with the cold being gone, and energy back... NOPE! I worked for an hour and a half, decided to eat a snack- an apple, my favorite food now. I sat down, ate my apple and watched tv for about a half hour, when I decided to get back up and back to work... well, I tried to get up. I felt like a 90 year old woman! Now, I know that the older I get the less I can do just like I used to be able to, but, come on! Last summer, I would push mow our whole yard - 1 acre, use the weedeater, and blow off all of the drive way and deck, then water my flowers for a whole hour - at least. I love to push mow - just ask our neighbors! I am the yard nazi! Anyway, I am a work horse... usually. That hour and a half was such a teaser, but, I hurt the whole rest of the day! I guess I aggravated my sciatic nerve once again! I just have sooo much I am wanting to get done, sometimes, I wish I had a clone of me pre-pregancy. My mom volunteered to come and help me, but, I do not want to have to ask anyone to come and help me clean my house. It is my job, and it is staying clean for the most part, just not my level I prefer!

Allen says he worries about me working too hard around the house, and has promised me that the neighbors will be watching me this spring, when I get the fever to start mowing and working on the yard. I am soo ready for spring, buying flowers, and enjoying the smells and sights of spring. I guess, the neighbors will be calling in a complaint this spring to Allen about a big fat pregnant lady working in her yard once again.. I just promise I will take my time, and take lots of breaks I guess.

As you can tell, I have been pretty bored, and just cooped up in this house for way too long. I just wish that it was nice enough out to do something besides clean and watch tv. I guess when Spring finally decides to get here, I will be ready!
