1 Week

On Friday Dec. 24th at her doctors visit Peyton weighed 8.5 lbs which puts her in the 75th percentile. Most babies loose weight after birth, but not this girl. She measured 22.5 inc. which put her in the 99th percentile!!! She is off the charts, I know she doesn't get it from me it must be from Mike.

Mike said "It's amazing how much I love her after 7 days, I can't imagine my life with out her."
Mike took these photos at our house, pretty impressive I must say. He has a hidden talent!

A hint of green eyes, but mostly blue.
She is partially smiling, I love it when she smiles!  P looks like she is picking her nose, but if you look close she isn't. I still think it's funny and cute.
 This is how most of the pictures turned out :) I'm glad we got a few amazing ones though.
* She has an attitude, if I don't feed her the second she decides she is hungry she thinks she is going to die and lets everyone know!
* She has different cries, I like the quite little…

Weight: 8 lbs. 5 oz.
Length: 20.5 in.

5:40 AM the phone rings. It's the hospital calling to say they are ready and can induce me. I went and woke up Mike who actually got some sleep that night.

At about 8:00 we were all checked in and ready to go. I was dilated to a 3 and 70% effaced. They put the IV in and I almost passed out. I got really nauseous and white. She kept poking me and and poking me finally she got it in... It was horrible, then they started the Pitosin. I waited to get the epidural because I wanted to feel some real contractions. They actually weren't bad at all I would have gone longer, but they were going to break my water and I wanted to be numb for that. I got the epidural around 11:45 and the doctor broke my water at 12:00 I was dilated to a 5. They put the Pitosin up to a 20 which is its max. We were progressing great and guessed that she would be here around 3. Then a turn for the worst...
About 5 nurses came running into the room. They put an oxygen mask on me and that when the flash backs of…

39 Weeks

Monday was my first day not working in a very long time. The last few days have been hard because I’m just playing the waiting game. I cleaned our WHOLE house on Monday. Nesting? I think so!  I couldn’t sleep all night. Mike and I went to the Dr. Tuesday morning. He said he would induce me if I was a 10 on the Bishops Score, last week I was a 9.  He checked me and we calculated it and he said I was around an 8. He said really if you’re not a 10 then there is a high risk of Cesarean. So of course we will wait, I'm not against C-Sections since I was told once that I might have one, but I'm not going to take any risks. I have another Dr.  appointment on Friday for another check up. I am now 192lbs no thanks to egg nog…. I bought some yesterday around noon and as of right now it’s gone. It was only half a gallon, but still! I guess that means I’m off to the gym.  I have A LOT of Braxton Hicks through out the day, but I finally have had a few real contractions! OUCH!! I just wish the…

Winter thus far!

I have a bunch of random pictures that I haven't blogged about so here is one big post for all of them. 
Temple Square! We usually go on the 19th since that is a special day for us, but we hope to be in the hospital. :)

38 Weeks!

We are down to weekly appointments! My Dr. is back and so now I can relax and Peyton can come. I weighed in at whopping 190lbs. I know it’s from the all Milk I've been drinking. I can't get enough of it. I'm at about a gallon every 2 days. Don't judge! :) I have kind of been dreading this appointment, but really excited for it all the same time. I knew he was going to check me... and he did just that. He was a little surprised to find that I am 80% effaced and ALMOST dilated to a 3. He said not quite, but pretty much. This was not a pleasant experience... Then he said "Do you want me to strip your membranes?" I was told by a few people to have this done and so of course I said yes. I'm not going to lie this hurt. I would do it again though it was bearable. He said "I can't promise anything, but I wouldn't be surprised if you have her this week. I don't want to get your hopes up though."  Mike and I went home and watched T.V. when my …

37 Weeks! BIG WITH BABY!

I am now considered full-term and boy do I look and feel it! 
My Dr. is out of town till the 7th and so this week I went to someone else in the same office. I was excited to see if I've dilated at all, but he didn't check. I am now 187lbs which is 1lb over on where I want to be, but that's okay. He did tell me that as far as belly measurement I’m still right on 37 weeks 37 inches. They measure from your pelvic bone to just under your chest. He said I am having a hard time telling because her head is right on your pelvis and her legs and bum are up in your ribs. He said she hasn't dropped yet, but she is defiantly head down.  Dang it, I thought she had dropped, but no not yet. I have been walking funny because it hurts to walk normal. It’s more of a waddle now and Mike thinks it's pretty funny and I’m glad I can laugh with him. It actually hurts pretty bad when I walk though :(
I'm having a really hard time sleeping I wake up a few times every night and go get a dr…

My Golden Birthday! 23

Happy Birthday to me!
This year I decided I wanted to keep it simple.
Mike and I both took off work. We slept in for as long as we both could. :) Mike brought me my second present Fire and Ice roses my favorite of course. The first present was gum and jerky and eggnog at midnight :) Then it was off to IHOP for some breakfast with Spencer and Janae. Spencer surprised me with some beautiful pink Gerber daises my other favorite. After breakfast Mike and I went to the hospital to get registered since i've been having contractions we don't want to have to do this later. Then we went shopping, I keep forgetting to buy stuff for me. I think Peyton has all of the clothes she needs.... Then we came home Mike made me take a bath, because he knows how much I love them :) I got a few more presents and we left to go to dinner! Today the 2010 Blizzard hit. We went to Thanksgiving Point my favorite restaurant, i'm so glad its a few blocks away from our house because when we got done and …
