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!

Great Day to be Alive

Today has been a great day, despite being my favorite day of the week, Saturday. Today, I felt Baby M kick for the first time. Four little thumps to my left side. I was just relaxing in my chair, and felt the thump, thump, thump, under my arm, resting on my belly. It is such a great thing knowing that sometime soon, I will finally get to meet this person in my belly, and they will change our lives forever.

I have "popped" out in the belly just a little more now. My uncle's visitation and funeral went well. It was a really nice service, even though, it was not a happy time. I broke down a few times, just like everyone else seemed to. It was really nice to see my family, considering the events. I got to visit with a lot of my family that I usually don't get to see that often. My Mom's family is now expanding by 5 babies, instead of 3. We are all due just weeks apart in a 3 month spread. I am having baby #2 out of the whole bunch, but, Baby M will be the first one out of the 3 of us expecting our first baby. It will be really nice to have lots of cousins for Baby M to play with, all around the same age too. It was funny to see so many pregnant women at the gathering hall at the church all mingling and talking about how we feel, what we crave, etc. Aunts were all swarming around trying to figure out what the sex of the babies was, for the few of us that were showing now. My prediction went from carrying high, to I don't know, maybe high middle by the end of the afternoon. I let the aunts know they will find out if they were right or wrong this week, since the ultrasound is on Friday. Everyone of course asked what sex I wanted Baby M to be. My answer is the same as always, I really do not mind either Boy or Girl, just as long as they are healthy. I only wish for dark hair and Allen's laid back personality. We do not need another live wire running around in our house, and SPF 50 sunscreen is something I do not want to have to rub on a toddler every time we leave the house. I know both Allen and I agree on that one...dark hair like mine with a dark complexion, just like their Mamma. It is really going to be a toss up on hair color.. Allen is red headed, and we both have red hair on both my Mom's side and Allen's Dad's sides of the family, but, dark hair is also dominant too... so who knows what we will end up with!

I feel great for once. This week has been the easiest week I have had in a long time. My pelvic pain has went away for the time being, and I have my energy back for now too. I had a trade off though, Baby M has dropped down lower I guess, since now, I have to go to the bathroom twice as much again. I really don't mind that part, as long as I feel great. I was telling Allen last night that I really would love to stay the size I am now, even though we know that is not going to happen, I am showing great, popped out front and center, but, I am not big enough to be uncomfortable yet. I think I am finally comfortable to be loving every minute now. Before, I loved being pregnant, but, it was hard with all of the discomfort from my pelvis, and trying to walk when I would first get up from sitting down. I got quite a bit accomplished this week... the house is spotless, and I am ready to tackle Baby M's room now... just 6 more days until we can start in on that!

Since, it is soo nice out today, and Allen is shooting sporting clays with our neighbor, I am going to spend some much needed time outside and baby my sweet spring flowers that have started poking out of the ground! This weather is soooo great! It came at the best time.. I feel great, and it is soo nice outside! Things could not be any sweeter today!
