It all started on Tuesday October 25, 2011 around 3:00pm. I was at work and had a feeling like I might have broke my water but I didn't know for sure. I looked online to see if that is what really happened, and it looked like that's what had happened. I still wasn't convinced so, I called my mom and she told me to call the doctor.
At 4:00pm I was finished with work so I walked to the bus, and called the doctor as I waited for the bus. The oncall nurse at my doctor's office said the best way to know if your water has broken or not is to go home, put on nothing but a rob and see if you are "dripping." So, that's what I did, and sure enough I was "dripping." After I knew for sure that my water had broken I called my mom to let her know that this could be the night the baby would be born. I also called Jordan to let him know that my water had broken and that we would be going to the hospital as soon as he got home from work.
When Jordan got home, at around 5:30pm, he took a quick shower, loaded up the car and headed to the hospital. We arrived at the hospital at around 6:00pm, I had been feeling contractions since about 5:30pm so I was in quite a bit of pain at this point. The nurses took me to my room and had me change but after that we didn't see a nurse for about 45 minutes. I was having very strong contractions this entire time and really couldn't take the pain anymore so, I called the nurse to see if I could get some medication for the pain. She gave me some fentanyl and that didn't help much. After that she asked me if I wanted the epidural now because the anesthesiologist was going to a c-section and if I didn't get it now it could be 2 or 3 hours until he was able to come give it to me. So, I broke down and got the epidural and after that I felt 100 times better.
After I got the epidural everything seemed to go so fast! I had a doctor come in to break and drain the rest of my bag of water but, when he checked me he noticed that my water was completely broke and drained and that I was already dialated to a 10. The nurse then came in and told me that in an hour I could begin pushing, and when the babies head was in the right position she would call my doctor.
Well, the hour came, went and it was time to start pushing at around 9:30pm. I pushed for about an hour and twenty minutes when the nurse told me to stop pushing until my doctor arrived. Dr. Blackette walked into our room at 10:53pm, got her scrubs on, and sat down to catch the baby. I gave her one good push and Kinzlie was here (at 10:57pm). She was then cleaned up, tested, given her shots, and put into my arms. Ever since that moment I have been in love with my sweet baby girl.
Our first visitors at the hospital were Johnny and Denise (Jordan's dad and step-mom), then a few hours later my dad and little brother showed up :) The next day (Wednesday 10/26/2011) Kirsten (Jordan's lil sis), my mom and emma, Trissa and Spencer (Jordan's mom and step-dad), and Glade and Brenda (Jordan's Grandparents) all came to visit us. The next day (Thursday 10/27/2011) Dava and Dixon (Jordan's Cousin and his wife) came to visit and brought us a cute little blanket.
On Thursday October 27, 2011 at 10:00pm we got discharged from the hospital. We were so excited to finally get to take our precious little angle home with us. Jordan and I were so worried about driving with her that we took all the back roads home and drove very slow and careful. That was the first day of the rest of our lives and we honestly couldn't be any happier with out little bundle of Joy!

Baby can recognize and react to simple songs...time to start practicing your lullabies! In fact, baby will recognize frequently sung tunes after birth and probably find them soothing. Less cute news: She now urinates about one pint per day. Get the diapers ready!

Saturday we woke up and took Jordan to the dentist. The dentist took some x-rays of his mouth and discovered that the pain was coming from an ingrown wisdom tooth, and the tooth right next to it that both had infections in them. So, he "popped" those two teeth out, gave us some prescriptions for pain and an antibiotics. We picked up the meds and headed home so that Jordan could rest.
On Sunday we woke up and went to church. Jordan was still in pain but he took a couple to pain pills and was able to make it through all three hours of church, but by the end of it he was definitley ready to go home. When we got home Jordan took some more medicine and started to feel better, but my back/side was starting to act up again. I delt with the pain for the rest of the day, taking 2 tylenol at 6:30pm and 2 more pills at 9:30pm and neither time helped with the pain. I tried to handle to pain for as long as possible but around 12:30am I had had all of the pain that I could handle and told Jordan that we needed to go to the emergency room to see what was wrong. I was worried that I might have a kidney infection or UTI and I definitley didn't want it to get any worse if that's what it was.
So, we got ready and headed to the emergency room. When we got there they took me straight to labor and delivery in a wheel chair. They set me up in a room, took a urine sample, and had me change into a hospital gown. They gave me an IV and gave me some medication to take the edge off. While there I also had an ultrasound and a few percocet for the pain. Come to find out, I had a few kidney stones, and there wasn't much they could do about it until I passed the stones. So, at around 8:30am Monday morning they sent me home with some pain medication and some antibiotics. We picked up the prescriptions and headed home. When we got home we went straight to bed and slept pretty much all day. When we woke up we both were feeling a little better and all was well. Hopefully our pain will stay under control enough so that we can both go back to school and work as soon as possible.

Lately, I have been feeling baby kick and move around quite often and I have even been charting her daily kick counts. Unfortunatley though, no one else has been able to feel here move, not even Jordan. I have had 1 braxton hicks contraction but it was bad at all. Sleeping isn't causing too much discomfort execpt when I eat something too acidic and have heart burn. Jordan and I have already set up babies craddle in our room, and are preparing everyday for the arrive of our beautiful little bundle of joy :)
And, according to thebump.com, babies skin is smoothing out and her grasp is strong enough to grab ahold of a finger now. I am currently 30 weeks and 5 days along, and I have about 65 more days until baby gets here!

My next appointment is in 3 weeks, and after that they will be every two weeks! I can't believe how fast this pregnancy is flying by, only 85 days until my due date. Before we know it she's going to be here!
Lately I have been feeling great! I haven't had any nausea or vomiting either. I am sleeping pretty easily still which is great :) I also haven't been having any strange food cravings although I do always want to eat fruit and sweet things like that :)

I have a lot of favorite songs but the first one that comes to mind is by Jason Aldean and it's called Dirt Road Anthem.
P.S. I think Jason Aldean is extremely attractive!!
Day 29 - In this past month, what have you learned
In the past month I have learned that I need to start being more outgoing so that I can meet more people and have more friends lol! I also have learned that I am pretty lucky to have such a wonderful life and an awesome husband to share my life with. The last thing that I learned is that it is pretty difficult to blog every single day, and I have a new respect for the people that take the time and energy to blog every day.

The picture on the top is from about a year ago (it's one of our engagement pictures), and the picture on the bottom is of Jordan and I at the Manti temple a week or so ago.
I have changed a lot since the first picture was taken, the biggest change being the fact that I'm pregnant now. I feel like I have also gotten more mature and grown up than I was a year ago. Jordan is still as handsome as ever!

Day 27 - Why are you doing this 30 day challenge
I decided to do the 30 day challenge because I thought it would be fun to do. I also needed to switch up the blog a little bit from the weekend updates and I saw a few of my other blog buddies doing this challenge and so I decided to hop on board!
P.S. I'm not going to be too terribly sad when it's over though!

Lip glosses (3)
Glasses cleaning kit
Mini Manicure Kit
Day 23 - Something you crave for a lot
Lately, I've been craving a lot of sweet things like cookies, popsicles, and chocolate mostly. I've read a lot of articles and research stating that while pregnant with a girl you'll usually crave sweets and if you're having a boy you crave salty snacks, so this is my excuse for the time being lol :)
Day 22 - What makes you different from everyone else
This is a difficult one for me because I don't think I'm really that different from everyone else. I guess I would have to say my personality and my sense of humor. I am a pretty positive person, I enjoy life and try to live it to the fullest. I am also a pretty quite/stick to myself kind of person.

Day 21 - A picture of something that makes you happy
There are a lot of things that make me happy but, here are my top 3 :)
1. Pepsi! Nothing makes me happier than a nice cold vanilla pepsi over crushed ice! YUM!!
2. My camera, it's a Canon Rebel Xti and I absolutely love it! I love being able to take fun and creative pictures, then coming home and attempting to edit them in Photoshop or Picnik! I have taken a class on how to use all of the different functions of it, but it's going to take a lot of practice before I am any good at it!
3. Lastly, are two of my favorite comedy routines. They are Kevin James: Sweat the Small Stuff, and Bill Cosby Himself. I love these two so much! I laugh until I cry every time I see them (I think I've seen both of them about 10 times each and they never get old :))

Day 13 - A letter to someone who has hurt you recently
Sorry but I don't really have anything to put for this one?? This could be due to 2 different reasons. 1) I don't go around people that I know will hurt me 2) I don't really get hurt by others that easily.

According to thebump.com, baby's skin is becoming more opaque as the fat starts to pack on. And, thanks to the formation of small capillaries, her newly thick skin is taking on a fresh pink glow.
Day 12 - How you found out about blogger and why you have one
I probably found out about blogger by just looking at my friends blogs that they posted on Facebook, but I don't really remember exactly. I have a blog because I wanted to use it as a journal, to keep track of my family and have a record of all of our fun adventures. I also wanted to be able to update our family and friends that live far away on what were up to without spamming Facebook all the time lol :)

This is a picture of me and my best friend and husband, Jordan. We have been together for almost 3 years and married for about 1. I love him more that anything thing, and I feel like I can tell him everything! I don't know what I'd do without him :)
Day 10 - Songs you listen to when you are happy, sad, bored, hyper, mad
When I am happy I usually listen to country music. I love Chris LeDoux, George Strait, Reba McEntire, Jason Aldean, and Miranda Lambert.
When I am sad or mad I usually listen to Hard Rock or Rap, but that's not very often.
When I am hyper I like to listen to crazy techno and club/dance music :)
