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!

Marco Polo with Hayleigh

I just wanted to get this written down, since it has not made it on my pregnancy calandar, and I really really wanted to be able to remember this someday.

Yesterday was a great day! I got 5 hours UNINTERRUPTED sleep through the afternoon! But, before I finally got to where I would lie down to sleep at noon, I ended up playing with Hayleigh. This has by far been the neatest thing so far! I had been blogging, and on facebook, trying to get the ZZZZZZs to settle in, and I just happened to sit back in my chair at the table in the kitchen, and put my hands on top of my belly. I feel odd just letting them do anything else anymore. Anyway, I no more than put my hands down on my belly, and Hayleigh kicked my hand hard. I wasn't applying any pressure, so, I thought she was really getting active, I would just feel around and see what she was up to. Well, I moved my hands to another spot, a few inches away from the last spot, and just sat them on my belly. KICK! Right under my hand again, and hard too! I kept repeating this all over my belly, and she followed my hand every time! The kicks were hard enough that I could really see my belly moving too! I know these kicks will progress more, and get harder, but, I just thought that this was soo neat, because she was reacting with me, kind of like we were playing Marco Polo or something. I can really feel her moving around a whole lot more everyday, and I think that is what part of my insomnia is to blame for. I just get in bed and settled, and she will start in. I think I am still just in awe that this is happening, and I just sit there with a huge grin on my face, thinking how great this is to actually be experiencing this sensation! I just keep thinking back to last year, and how excited I would be then if I knew what I was doing right now, so, I cannot sleep, just to feel those kicks and hiccups, just for my last year me. I know that doesn't make much sense, but, I know this will all be ending soon, and I just do not want to take it for granted, and enjoy as much of it as possible.
