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!

Wordless Wednesday- 8wks!!!!

Tomorrow, I will be 8wks along with Baby #2! Tomorrow is a big day! Hopefully we will get to see the baby moving around and waving, and hear the heartbeat. I cannot wait! That must explain why I cannot sleep anymore! I am soo happy that I am off of work for this week and most of next just for that. Today has been pretty hectic. Missy and Toby got out of our fence, and ran two houses down before I finally found them. I looked all over our house, our backyard, and our neighbor's yard, before walking down our road to get our mail, all while yelling their names. I finally found them running to me, covered in stink mud! eggghhhh! the smell was awful!!!! They are now on total lock down for the rest of the night- just allowed out for potty breaks and food and water. After all of that, Hayleigh decided to throw a tantrum before her nap- sigh... never a dull moment in our household anymore! I wouldn't trade it for anything- but the dogs running off- that has got to stop. I was afraid I was going to find them on the road run over- I always expect the worst. Anyway, busy, busy day! Well, in celebration of  tomorrow, I figured I would start posting these updates now- after all, I did the same for Hayleigh. So, Baby M #2 - your developments for this week:
How your baby's growing:

New this week: Webbed fingers and toes are poking out from your baby's hands and feet, his eyelids practically cover his eyes, breathing tubes extend from his throat to the branches of his developing lungs, and his "tail" is just about gone. In his brain, nerve cells are branching out to connect with one another, forming primitive neural pathways. You may be daydreaming about your baby as one sex or the other, but the external genitals still haven't developed enough to reveal whether you're having a boy or a girl. Either way, your baby — about the size of a kidney bean — is constantly moving and shifting, though you still can't feel it.
