Picture Overload...

Sooo...It's been awhile, like 3 months I think! So I thought I better at least put some pictures up of my little munchkin and some of the other things that have happened since

This first picture was of Haylin on a drive up to Cardston to go see her great grand parents get set apart as missionaries. The ride wasn't very pleasant, first because she needed attention so i had to sit in the back with her and second because...well as you can see in the bottom right hand pictures she...well...kinda messed herself. It was so funny I had to take a picture.

This here is the cutest nephew ever...

I took a few memory photos so see how big Haylin is when G&G Evanson get home! Haylin also loved walking around with grandpa while he made up little songs to go along with his bouncing beat. He does it with every grandchild! In the top right hand corner picture is great great grandma Evanson taking a look at Haylin.

So for my Birthday my mom bought me a ticket to "RIVER DANCING"!!!! It was amazing. Karah bought a ticket as well. But I always remember when I was little dancing to river dance because my mom had bought one of the CD way back when. My friends and I would pretend to be fairies and dance to our favorite songs.

done for now...

Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV)

Haylin had her first trip back to the hospital and was there for 5 day because she had RSV. Basically what it is, is a really bad lung infection! And the sad thing is that you just have to let it run its course because there is really no medication to clear it up. Anyways, here's a few pictures of haylins time at the hospital....

I guess i can't type first and then add pictures!...Because it does this.

Well like everyone says...make sure you spend every waking moment with your babies because time goes by way to quick. Well its true. It feels like yesterday when I was looking into my baby girls eyes in amazement thinking she's mine, or i can't believe she's actually here. I loved her from the moment I saw her, but my love keeps on growing when I see her smile at me or give me a half grin, or even a little giggle when I do something absolutely retarded. She knows whats funny.

I love watching her dad play with her, and how she knows who he is. I love watching Dayne put her to sleep and how she'll calm right down and fall asleep. He's awesome with her.
I truly am grateful for eternal families and know that we can be together forever.

On Saturday Dayne and I just decided to head up to Cardston to surprise my Great Grandparent with a visit, because they hadn't seen their Great great granddaughter yet. And it was special because we now have a generation of 5 living "Belles". It's been the middle name of each first born daughter in the families. So...Grandma Tanner, Grandma Evanson, my mom, me, and now Haylin.

My Sweet Haylin Belle....

Haylin was born Oct 27, 2010 @ 9:37pm. She defiantly made me work. I was actually admitted in to the lethbridge hospital that Monday because of my health, i had high blood pressure and was very swollen so the doctor put me on bed rest at the hospital. Tuesday, the doctor decided to use a gel to try and make things happen. I got contractions for about 6-7 hours and then they stopped during the night. So the doctor told me to get some rest because i was going to have a big day on Wednesday...I was having a baby whether i liked it or not. Doctor came around 6am in the morning and checked if i was dilated enough to break my water, and sure enough I had dilated 3cm so he broke my water.

The nerves started to kick in, and i was shaking and couldn't stop.

After he broke my water, he said that if i wasn't contracting by 8am then he was going to start me on the drip. I was having a few contractions here and there but nothing major so that's when all the fun began. I feel bad for anyone that has to be induced, just from my experience and what the nurses were telling me, being induce sucks! Being forced into labor can really put a toll on your body because your naturally not ready for this baby to come.

I was doing really well until up to 6cm, the only thing that sucked was that I had to labor in bed...oh ya fun stuff...the doctor didn't want me walking around because of how high my bp was. So ya i had to lay in bed which was the worst thing possible. Finally by 5-6cm I didn't care what the doctor said I was standing up, and oh my goodness what a difference. I could actually breath.

Soon after they sent me to the labor room. By that time I had only tried morphine for pain. That did nothing....all it did was make you fall asleep between contractions. So thats when they asked me if i wanted a epidural, i was hesitant at first because i really wanted to do it natural, But it took me a matter of 3 seconds to change my mind. And what a blessing that was!!! Having a epidural was heaven....for the time that it lasted. It worked for maybe 4 hours and then I could feel full on contractions on one side. Not a fun feeling. Nope. There was a button that I was allowed to push every 15mins to give me another shot of the medicine, but it was jammed, nothing was slowly things started to wear off.

But before I knew it, it was time to push! I pushed for 2 hours to finally meet my baby girl! I cant say it was a wonderful and amazing experience because it wasn't for me. But to be able to hold Haylin for the first time was a blessing! I love her and I love my Husband! And now i have a family of my own.

Count Down....

So my due date is Nov 13th, 2010....
I can't believe that its getting so close, I do have a feeling though that I'm going to be induced a little early. My BP keeps on going up and down and the doctor doesn't like that. So I've been doing alot of running around, going to appointments to the clinic and also to the hospital to get NST's (Non-Stress Tests) done for the baby. Its been going good. Baby is not at all stressed, she likes to move around lots.
And today I get yet another ultrasound...Dr. said that this ultrasound will determine whats going to happen in the next couple weeks...eeeek!
Any whooo....part of the reason I blogged today was because I wanted to here as much helpful ideas that i could use while I'm in labor. I plan on doing all natural, plus I'm having the baby in Taber so they don't have all the good meds like lethbridge has.
So, please if you have any helpful ideas that i could use that helped you ladies out during labor then I'm all ears. :)
