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!

28 wks check up and Glucose Screening

Today, I had the wonderful privilege of getting my glucose screening done at my 28 wk check up. I got the lucky draw of getting the nasty fruit punch version of it instead of the orange, like I had been hoping for. The drink was not too bad at first, but, kept getting stronger and stronger, so, I chugged it down when I got about half way done with it. I then got to go down and wait and have my regular check up.

I weighed in~ gained 1 lb, so I am now up to 13lbs total for this pregnancy, which Sandy and the nurse were very impressed with- no more getting grouched at! I am right on track with Hayleigh, which is great. She is a very feisty little thing! She had been moving around quite a bit before the appointment, and as the hour after I drank that fruit punch from hell drink, she got even more rambunctious. Sandy had to follow her back and forth across my tummy to get her heartbeat. That Girl just didn't want to hold still! I had Sandy set me up a 4-D ultrasound order, scheduled for May 14th at 8am- Allen and I are both off, so this will be nice! Other than that, Sandy went over how to time contractions, preterm labor, and all of that good stuff, and said she would see me back every two weeks now... I kind of sat there shocked we were to this point already! So, my next appointment is May 11th at 9:30. 

So, then, I finally got to go back up to the lab, and get my blood drawn. I don't know about most people, but, I usually favor one arm when blood is to be drawn from me, which is my right arm.. this time I told the tech to just go ahead with my left arm. I am hoping this does not throw off my lucky streak with my right arm. I know it has nothing to do with anything remotely of making my test come back fine, but, I am just funny like that I guess.

Everything looked and went fine today, I guess they will be calling me before my next appointment if I did fail my glucose screening test. Hopefully that does not happen, but, we will see! I ended up leaving that whole appointment today kind of freaked out, and with a packet of papers to look over. One thing is for sure, Hayleigh will be here soon!
