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!

Monday, Hayleigh and I reached 31 wks. Things have been pretty busy around here, but quite at the same time. Hayleigh stomps her feet all over my belly and flops around nonstop, even as I write this. The weeks seem to be flying right along.. soon I will be taking my leave from my work, and trying to keep up around the house as we wait for the big arrival of our little ham. So far this pregnancy has been by the book- with the exception of a few of the side effects- I am really grateful for not having to experience. I am really happy how helpful a lot of people have been lately, but, I am still disappointed by a few. I guess that you always wish that the friends that you have lost from dealing with infertility would just deal with their problems with others having to experience infertility and be there for me for just one day. I guess it was wishful thinking on my part. But, things are just fine with or without them. We are picking up the crib and dresser for Hayleigh's nursery this weekend. I think that both Allen and I are really excited about this, kind of making this more real for us. Other than that news, there is not much of anything else really going on.

Hayliegh's developments for the week:
As your baby's senses increase, his mommy's breathing room decreases.
Your Baby in Week 31 of Pregnancy
Weighing in at three-plus pounds and measuring 18 inches long, your baby is quickly approaching her birth length — though she's got to pack on another three to five pounds before D-day. Also developing at an impressive clip: your baby's brain connections (she's got to make trillions of them!). She's now processing information, tracking light, and perceiving signals from all five senses. She's also putting in longer stretches of sleep, which is why you're probably noticing more defined patterns of wakefulness (and movement) and rest (when she’s pretty still).
