Big News

By now, pretty much everyone who reads my blog will have seen this on Twitter or Facebook, BUT...  Trent and I are expecting Baby Allen #2 on June 28!  We are very excited!

To give a little background....

About a year and a half ago, we began trying to get pregnant.  After many disappointing months of nothing, my doctor diagnosed me with polycystic ovaries and insulin resistance.  Together, these two things definitely complicated our desires for another biological child. (If you know our hearts-- adoption is DEFINITELY a "long term" plan for us!)  After months of prayer, doctors visits, and even some fertility medication...  we are finally expecting again!!

The author of one of my favorite blogs, Kelly at Kelly's Korner, is also pregnant, and I'm stealing this idea from her blog! :)

How Far Along:  7 Weeks
