About Me

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!

30wks with 3D and 4D pics!

Allen's favorite pic of Hayleigh- she has her hand on her chin

sucking her thumb

has her arm up next to her face

sticking her tongue out

She had had enough put her hand up in front of her face- look at that chubby little arm with that little hand!

Her girl parts- her legs and butt are the white U and the girl parts are inside of the U
So this last week was quite a week.. glucose screening was a day from hell. I did not get to leave the clinic until after 1:30pm, and after being up since 1am, and not eating since 10:30pm the night before, I was wiped out. The week went on pretty fast. We had our 4D ultrasound on Friday morning first thing. My dad, and his wife came with us. We had to register in the maternity wing before the ultrasound, and had to walk past the nursery on the way to radiology. That was a real ohhh my gosh moment. There were a couple of babies in the nursery, as I pointed it out to Allen. I think that the look on his face mirrored mine as well. The ultrasound was great! We have quite an active little girl... well, little may be understated. The tech guessed her at 4lbs. I thought she would only be a little over 3lbs right now. He also said I looked closer to 31wks going on 32wks, instead of 30wks going on 31wks. But, we know that it cannot be any closer than being conceived from October 26th.. that is the day we went in for IUI.

We got to catch Hayleigh sucking her thumb, yawning, and wailing her limbs around. We did have the tech confirm that Hayleigh is indeed a girl, and got some 3D pics to go with the 4D as well. I just couldn't believe how we could see what she looks like, or get over how not soo skinny she was... our little HAM... at least her initials will match her quite well. Anyway, I have had a blog post in the works all week, and I am just going to keep it short today.

Hayleigh's Developments for the week:
Week 30 of Pregnancy

Your baby's brain is getting smarter by the minute, but for Mom, the only thing that smarts right now may be heartburn pain.

Your Baby in Week 30 of Pregnancy

Your belly’s increasing size is a definite clue that your baby is getting bigger every day, weighing in at over three pounds now (he’ll be packing on the weight at a rate of half a pound per week for the next seven weeks). Also growing daily is his brain, which is actually starting to look like the real thing with those characteristic grooves and wrinkles. And now that your little genius can regulate his own body temperature and turn up the heat, he'll start shedding lanugo, the downy body hair that's been keeping him warm up until now.
