About Me

Western North Dakota , United States
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!

27 weeks... rounding the corner of the last of the Second Trimester

Today, Hayleigh and I have made it to 27 weeks! I am soo happy we have made it this far! I will say that this keeps getting harder and harder, the further along we get into this adventure, but, really worth it all! I think Allen and I are learning how to multitask more and more each day, deciding what is really important for our growing family, and what can just wait. We have soo much going on right now, that some things are just being pushed aside. We have less time it seems like anymore to just sit and relax, and our weekends seem to always get booked up by Wednesday anymore. Time sure is flying by soo fast, I just wish we could touch the ground just a little bit more than we have been. Taking care of everyone else lately has been exhausting, since we don't have that much time to ourselves anymore.. I hope that people can understand that we are trying to do the best we can right now. I worry more and more about when Hayleigh comes, who I will or will not let near her. I thought this was kind of silly at first, but, if you had waited for 5 years for this little girl, wouldn't you be a little bit more protective of her too? I like that right now, she is in my belly, and no one can touch my belly without me authorizing it first. When she finally does get here, I worry about people dropping her, and just not listening to me period, about who I do not want around.... there is more to that right there. I guess that I just worry and know that I cannot protect her from all of the wrong in this world. I know I will make sure that she understands wrong from right, and understands that certain things are just not okay in this world, or in society. Deep down I know everything will be alright.. she will have a very loving family to say the least.
Anyway, on a good note, she has been kicking all of the time now.. non-stop.. really good sign of a healthy baby girl! She has been picky lately on who she will kick for... Allen comes home, she won't hardly make one thump when he is near me. Ohh well, I am sure she will be putting on a show pretty soon for everyone. I swear I felt her foot slide across my belly last night already.. so, I am sure we are not too far from the neat shows of limbs poking through my belly.
Well, I guess since I am running out of steam here, here is Hayleigh's progress for the week:

Week 27 of Pregnancy

Your baby moves on to a whole new growth chart this week, while your swollen feet and ankles may need a growth chart of their own!

Your Baby in Week 27 of Pregnancy

For a baby, it's time to trade in the old crown-to-rump measurement for a new head-to-toe standard. So what are your baby’s stats this week (which, coincidentally, is the end of the second trimester)? Fifteen inches — more than a foot long — and triple (or even quadruple) what it was in week 12. Her weight is creeping up the charts as well, coming in at just over two pounds. More big news: Your baby may recognize your voice by now, so feel free to serenade your belly (start learning those lullabies!).
