Western North Dakota , United States
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!

27 Weeks & Getting a Kick out of Reid

Today, we are 27 weeks along! Reid is getting stronger and stronger every day with each new kick he throws me. It's hard to believe that next week, I will be in the third trimester, and this chapter in our lives will be done. We will not be down this road again- that we are planning on anyway.

With us making it to this point, there seems to be a lot going on.

Allen got his red had this morning at work- see Hard Working Daddy post. Hayleigh is all but done with pacifiers. They are all "broke" pretty much. She has managed to chew holes in all of them, so I'm thinking today is the day that I take the scissors to them to make sure she doesn't choke on chewing off pieces of them. Last night was a little rough. She managed to lose 2 of the good pacifiers that were still good, and I could not find them anywhere. I looked everywhere all over this house, and so the saying goes, "if Mama can't find it, it is truly lost."

Other than that, we have just been keeping busy around the house. Getting ready for Allen to come home. I'll keep this short today, and just post the videos of Reid kicking. He doesn't look like he is kicking that hard- but it sure does feel hard to me. I'll let you know how I feel about it  in about a month on his kicks being hard now to me. Anyway, they are faint looking on my belly- what do you expect him to do? Put his foot through my belly? lol
In the first video, he kicks 3 quick kicks on my right side of my belly- 1/4 the way up on the side of the video. Hayleigh does something soo sweet, and without prompting her, she says Reid's name. This amazes me because I don't constantly tell her that is Reid in Mommy's tummy.

This video you can see him kick 3 times or so, in the middle of my belly. I don't imagine we will see too much action on my left side, since the placenta is there to cushion my ribs- THANK GOD!!!
