Ok so I've been lame and haven't updated lately. First of all we found out we are getting another little girl. Kyle is going to be outnumbered (and is feeling like he has a recessive gene considering his dad got all boys). We have moved in to a house in G.C. Isabella took her first few steps last night in between Kyle and I. We can't believe our baby is almost 1 year. Just a month left.

Kyle picked out our costumes this year, which is fine, I get to dress him up next year.

It's been a crazy past little bit I promise I will update everyone soon. Here is a recap: Kyle got baptized, Isabella is four months, I am trying to balance two jobs scouts and young womens camp while Kyle is balancing three jobs and scouts (we are really loving it though), and the fuel pump went out on the stratus (which we got fixed). I just wanted to share this picture to show that I am still active in this.

Not having the internet has really altered my ability to be able to keep this up to date. I'm going to try to sum everything up as simply and quickly as possible. We will see how it goes.
May 1 was my birthday (woot woot) so Kyle and I were able to go on a date while his parents watched Isabella. It was nice to get out and be just us for a little while, although I was starting to miss her by the end of the trip. We went to Logan and ate at a sushi place, and then went to Alice in Wonderland. It was a really good show (even with the creepiness of Tim Burton). Of course it can't hurt to have Johnny Depp in it.
May 2 we had Isabella blessed. It was so nice for so many people to be able to be there with us. After the blessing we had lunch at Mom's.
As soon as we got home from Logan we changed clothes and went to the church. The bishop wanted to meet with us. We are now den leaders in the cub scouts for the bears and the wolves. Also I am one of the camp directors for the Young Women. I am excited for that one, but kindof scared of the scouts.
So I hope that sums everything up that has really happened, and wish us luck tomorrow as we go back to the doctor for Kyle. If his pinky is healing the right way he won't need surgery to fix it.

Well we finally had a difficult night with Isabella. On days I go to Logan I know that that night is going to be rough because it's a hard day for her, but nothing has ever compared to last night. Poor little girl must have had an upset belly or something because from 10:30 - 2 she cried almost none stop unless we were holding her, or she was eating. This morning we both struggled to get out of bed, but all I had to do was see her sleeping and I couldn't be upset or frustrated. While we were getting her ready for church Kyle said something like, "You kept Mom and Dad up all night didn't you?" She got the biggest smile on her face as if to say "Yes I did but look how cute I am". She is so much fun, but I'm hoping she doesn't make this a habit, haha.

I can't believe that it has been 7 weeks. Isabella has grown alot (she's finally up to 8 lbs). She's starting to smile, mainly at her dad. I'm going to be sad when I have to start work. We are doing her blessing on May 2. Here are some new pictures of her.

March 3, 4:15 I woke up to go to the bathroom and felt a tight pain in my back. I crawled back in to bed and another pain came. They were coming every 3 minutes and I felt my stomach and felt it tightening every time. Woohoo, I knew what was going on. I shook Kyle and told him I was having contractions every three minutes. His response was not what I expected. Half asleep, he said "Ok well tell me if we need to go to the hospital." "Probably now." I said. "Let me know when you're ready to leave." and with that he rolled on his side and started to snore again. I hit him and told him to grab what clothes he needed (I had already packed the basics for me and the baby the day before). He wandered around the apartment in sleepy daze. On the way to hospital we called our parents because we wanted both of our moms there with us when she was born.
We got to the hospital at about 5:30 and I was dialated to a 5. After the nurse told us that, Kyle (still half asleep) asked her if that meant we were staying or if we could go and come back later. She told him that we definantly had to stay and that I wasn't going any where. I progressed fairly well from that point on until they broke my water (which was between 10:30 and 11). I was dilated to an 8 and was stuck there. They started me on patosin at about 1 after I wasn't making any progress. I asked Ralph to give me a blessing. After this he and John (Kyle's dad) sat in there talking for a little bit. I started to feel harder contractions and had that intense pressure that told me baby was coming. I pulled Kyle over and told him to get Ralph and his dad out of there because we were having a baby and I didn't want them in the room. Almost right after he told them, the nurse told me to give a few practice pushes. She started to count and then at about 7 she said stop stop stop, your baby has hair. I sat there until the doctor came in for a few minutes. Thank heaven for an epidural because I was completely uncomfortable and knew that if I didn't have the pain killers that I would have been cussing. The doctor came in and the nurse told him that Kyle wanted to help deliver. Without asking any questions, he said "Hurry and get a gown on him." The nurse helped Kyle get his gown on and then after waiting what felt like forever for him to get the gloves on, it was time for her to come. Kyle was able to completely deliver her. The doctor just sat by him and told him what to do. I was leary of this when Kyle first suggested that he wanted to do it, but I'm glad I let him do it. Isabella Marie was born March 3, 2010 at 1:36 pm. She was 6 lbs 2 oz and 19 inches long.

So I figured I'd do a quick update on what is new with us. First things first, I'm getting big and to the uncomfortable point where I am ready to be done, haha. And we're both excited to get her here. Kyle has discovered one of his new favorite past times of, when she's awake, poking her and making her kick him or try hitting him (he particularly enjoys doing this at church). We went to the doctor today and found out that I am 1.5 dilated and 50% ephased. We're hoping she comes a little before her due date but we'll see; she might develop to be like me and decide she doesn't want to come.
Anyway, I'm sure that's enough about us. Hopefully our next update will include a new baby.

Ok I guess you couldn't really consider it snooping but I was reading Holly's blog and followed a link on a recent post of her's to this website. It's actually pretty cool some of things they've done. If I were creative I'd seriously consider trying some of things. Heck I might even now...or at least try to convince Kyle to try some of these things out.

I have decided to create two polls about the baby. We have reached the last month of the pregnancy, woohoo. I'm just going to give you some details the doctor has given me to help you make your choice. Two weeks ago I had already started to dilated but not very much then (he'll really start checking on the 22). The baby is head down and very far down. I know I'm weird but if you want to, vote for what you think.

So I was getting bored and decided to play with the look a like meter. I'm trying to find a picture of my dad so I can post a picture of me compared to mom and dad to see which I'm more like.

A few weeks ago this was shared with me and the girls I go to group counseling with. I liked it. Random I know.

This really is worth it. It made me giggle and just make sure you press 4 and 7 the first time.

Ya, the title is a big word for me to write, but it's the only announcement I really have and didn't know how to title this. On Tuesday the 17th (so ya a week ago, I'm behind).
Just as a background, even though I'm sure everyone already knows, Kyle has had four open heart surgeries for a few different things (pulmonary atresia, hypoplasty right heart syndrome, had a enlarged heart, and a few other things that were either caused from or linked to the other things. Ya, I've done a lot of research, good thing I like things to do with health.) Anyway because of all of this, our doctor told us he wanted us to go see a doctor in Salt Lake that could do a specialized ultrasound of our baby's heart. The reason for this was first of all, because our doctor wanted to know, and secondly, because if she has any of the same conditions as Kyle, we would not be able to have our baby in Logan and would have to go to Salt Lake. Even though there is no evidence that any of his conditions are hereditary, there is also very little evidence that it isn't hereditary. In fact, they don't really know what causes these conditions.
Now away from all that stuff, on Tuesday, we had to go to Primary Children's Hospital to visit with a neonatalcardiologist and have the ultrasound. Kyle was calm throughout this which was a good, because I have been extremely nervous about it. Even though I knew how rare the conditions were, I have still been freaked out that something would be wrong. We sat in the waiting room for about 30 minutes and with each minute I was getting more and more nervous, letting my mind run away with what if's.
Finally someone brought us into a room to do the ultrasound. As I lay there and watched her trying to find the heart, my mind continued to freak out. Finally after chasing her around for a while, the ultrasound tech was able to find her heart and zoom in on it. She took a long time and a lot of pictures of different angles of the baby's heart. She would talk to us, but said she wasn't allowed to really tell us anything about the findings in the heart. Ya, that was not so comforting to me. Finally she said that she got pictures of every part that she needed and went to get the doctor. He came in and looked through all the pictures, and re-looked at some.
He said that there was nothing he could see that was wrong. Thank heaven. He said that just as a side note, that doesn't mean there isn't anything however. Because some of Kyle's conditions have to do with the pulmonary valve, he said that some things won't be possible to detect until after she is born because right now my heart and lungs are doing everything for her, but he doesn't feel that we have any reason to be concerned about that.
He then asked us if we wanted to be involved in a special study that Primary Children's was doing with U of U about heart development and heart defect detection. By doing this they took 3D pictures of the baby's heart. He said that the type of ultrasound he was doing would not harm her in any way (I was a little leery because I've heard so many things about 3D ultrasounds) and that it wasn't the same type of 3D ultrasound that is used in shopping malls. It was actually pretty cool to see all the parts of her heart.
Anyway to make a long story short, in spite of my freaking out, everything is looking fine and I'm not as worried. I'm just happy for technology these days, and the ability for doctors to find things sooner and before birth. Everything right now is feeling normal to me (although I don't recall having braxton hicks at all with Braxton) and she is an active little girl.
