Wow a week from hell to heaven

Well I guess you could say that the beginning of last week went a lil like this......sucky...first off monday night ended in our first visit to the ER with lil boogie man, which i would never say is a nice or good experience with your first newborn child. Well hes 4 months now so i can consider him a baby. Anyway The day started out not to bad but he was very sleepy which wasnt exactly normal he usually likes to have some play time so i ignored it and went about my day. J got home and it was time for me to go to work. So i get dropped of im doing my normal you know making my client look beautiful. I get a call from J i normally dont answer but i did, to a very panicked daddy on the other line could hardly make out words and then herd im coming in and we need to take him to the emergency room as they entered my work a very sleepy baby with throw up pretty much drenching his onsie. Supposedly projectile vomit which ended up on the back of seat as well as all over his car seat.We changed him he started going to sleep again and look very drowsey that scared me so better to be safe then sorry and being so late at  night we took him to the e.r. We told them what happened and they said he would need an iv!!.. what an iv i thought in my head(thats gonna be fun..NOT)and an xray of his stomach for a muscle that might be forming there causing all the throwing up. So are lil man being as strong as he is, needed 3 nurses and a good papa holding him down. I dont think me and J have ever been so traumatized yikes! That was heartbreaking seeing him scream bloody murder and seeing him in so much pain i gently stroked his head and tryed to tell him it was gonna help him.

 The nausea medicine they gave him helped him go to sleep, they took the xray and came back and said that they see something and that now he need to get an ultrasound and if the ultrasound came back positive that he would have to immediatley be taken to a different hopital for surgery. Oh goody this is just getting awsome just the thought of that made me and j start crying. So as we went into the ultra sound of course rusty awoke to a strange lady putting this weird goo and big machine on his stomach. He just started kicking and screaming and this lady could not get a clear shot. At this time it had been 6 hours since he had not eaten so i tried to feed him a lil to calm him down. J gave him a blessing right there to either heal him or get a clear shot. She did she got 2, so back to our room we went and waited. and waited. and waited. They finally came back to negative results .RELEIF!!!!So we went on our way he slept like a baby that night poor lil man.
  Well the next day he seemed really out of it still so we had are bishop help J give him another blessing. Things were seeming good after he went to bed. I sorta felt a lil nauseated but was so tired i ignored it. So we all went to bed Rusty woke up crying at 1230  yay. I woke up to help him to find myself running to the bathroom to use the um well restroom if you know what i mean.I told j he needed to help rusty cuz i couldnt he was trying to calm him down but wasnt working. So when i was done i went to try to help j to fing my self runnning back to the bathroom to this time throw up. Really double duty this has surely never happen to me before jay was running back in forth from russ's room to my new best friend the toilet(I can laugh now but then i felt like i would die). this lil game went on for two hours the thing that made it even worse is that yes rusty cried that whole time it was caose!So i went to bed with my bucket and rusty finally fell asleep with dady in the bed. So about and hour and a half goes by to find myself awake to the same miserable thing here we go again for round 2....and then round 3 before i finally had J give me a blessing i was able to sleep till about 9 thank you rusty for sleeping in. For once again  round 4. Thank you for answered prays when i awoke i had to feed rusty really how do moms do this i want to be the sick one and get pampered.No not in the life of a mom, J woke up to find he couldnt get out of bed with the flu. . I called my neighbor because i literally had no energy to hold rusty she took him for a while while my other angel friend went to the store for me and j for some much needed necessitys . I prayed for strength to get through the day. I had to do laundry to clean sheets blankets and towels to get rid of this devil thing. I sprayed disinfectant in every corner of our house. The missionaries came over to now give j a blessing  he ended up sleeping most of the day while i took care of the laundry and had to pick rusty back up. 4 o clock rolled around only to find j running to the toilet to now finally throw up.So as you can see we have had a fun couple of days. I will testify the power of the priesthood its a powerful tool that is such a blessing from are heavenly father. The last several months have been a challenge for are family but through the prayer and priesthood i really have felt the love and strenghth from my heavenly father! Im so thankful for a religion that has the full truthfulness! 
  Luckily on fri a family friend was able to watch rusty for like 5 hours the longest we had ever left him me and jay had a blast we watched twilight

I cant wait for the next one!!

Of course it was awsome!.Then we had lunch could barely put it down but still had tons of fun and ran some errands without baby! 
Its safe to say we are definatley looking forward to this week in St. George for some family time and a much needed BREAK!

Rusty is here!!!!!!!!!


Well are lil rustys man is here and he is the most precious thing ever!! Me and baby are doing very well after a very short very intense labor!! Im still alive I cant believe its already been 5 days ....Don't feel left out I havnt talked to any of you yet  I felt like death till today!!We are so in love and very blessed!! Heavenly Fathers plan is amazing and families really are for forever and this experience has made that even more of a reality of the plan of salvation! We are soooooo stoked on our lil man!!


Well It all began about the 11th I had braxton hicks and cramps for about a day and the next day I lost my plug I knew it was coming close ...but every one and there mother told me" in your dreams every one on there first baby goes late" But I knew my body and also knew that my mom and sister also had fast labors so that day I ended up sleeping all day long(GOOD THING). That night at about 4 o Clock I was having a dream ..the dream was me my mom, dad ,my brother and sister and Jay were all playing at the beach we were all in the water playing in the waves, I was walking the edge of the water and told everybody they needed to get out!! My mom said she was having to much fun then a huge tsunami wave came and my mom told every one to run back in the water to duck dive the tsunami wave haha so we did and all got plastered we all came up and then all of a sudden I woke up and my water broke instantly! I don't mean just a lil bit of water It was like the whole thing so i tried to stay calm ......jay took some sleeping pills that night and had ear plugs in and was so out of I Gently rubbed his arm and said honey my water broke ...He said what..I said my water broke He popped up and yelled"what theres water in the bed!" I said no my water broke! so he jumped out of bed I called my midwife she sounded half asleep she told me i should stay home because first time labors last for hours she said i could come in but expect to go back home...Well I knew my body and I told her we were coming in to be safe we took showers jay gave me a blessing and we got are bags and left its a 45 min drive to salt lake and my contractions were starting to become very intense!! We got there and I was admitted they were asking me all sorts of questions and trying to give me Iv because i had an infections so i needed pencillin so rusty wouldnt get it they kept telling us our midwife was on her way it felt like an eternity my contractions were getting even stronger and right on top of each other. She finally came and clarified my water did break well DUHHHHHH and so they said we could go into our room. From the start we had decided I wouldn't have an epidural so we had learned some techniques at our class we went to. I instantly Got into a hot tub...I pretty much moaned through my contractions to get through them I maybe had 30 seconds to 45 second break in between my contractions jay was a great coach he would rub my back through them I couldn't look or talk to anyone I started to  moan extremely loud and they were starting to get unbearable my midwife said she would check to see where I was at after an hour in the tub she checked me and I was at a 9!!! thank goodness I still was getting no breaks and felt a strong urge to push!! she said why don't we get you on the bed..and that it was a good thing we came in ....UH YEAH HELLO I got onto the bed and she said I could start pushing through my contractions .I really cant describe the feeling of pushing...ITS JUST KNARLY!! through the contractions all i can say is that I don't think you can say your a women until you have given birth !!!!!!!!! through each contraction I would push I was pushing as hard as I could there was a lil piece of cervix around his head so she massaged it till his head was completely uncovered I pushed and pushed I felt like I wasn't getting anywhere ...I pushed so hard that I popped blood vessels in my eyes and broke a capillary in my nose one of my pushes blood just shot out from my nose all over my stomach.When they say the savior bled from every poor ...I now know it can truly happen I was pushing so hard that every poor in my face broke open so if you can notice in my picture my face is a lil purple thats why I have all these purple dots all over my face ...I really cant understand these chicks who have the pictures looking so pretty with there babies in the hospital...ahah that def not me! anyway, my contractions would stop and i would have to push after through no contractions they finally said his head was coming!!!!!! jay was so encouraging and i just kept on apologizing to the nurses for sounding like a wounded cow that was dying...thats really what i sounded like, I was so in the zone that there was just one thing on my mind GET HIM OUT..I started to cry a lil bit, I had been pushing so hard that my eyes were swelling shut......finally after an hour he was on my chest!!!!!!! It was the most surreal feeling ever I felt so much releif it was finally over and it was still only 8:20 in the morning!!! praise to all you women who are in labors for 20 hours barffffff ! I could barley see him cuz my eyes were so swollen but I felt like the luckiest girl in the world!!....Lil rusty man is such a lil mumchkin head he def looks like daddy(lots of dark hair) but has my lips and my fat cheeks and I think my eyes there BLUE now and hopefully they wont change!!! OUr family has been awesome I have had so much help I don't know what il do without them or how ppl have a newborn with multiple children its a full time job....breast feeding is an interesting thing I feel like I instantly got a double D boob job I walk around all day with no shirt on cuz i literally cant have anything touch them ouch this hurts but I love that im giving my baby the nutrients he needs.....its a really cool feeling and its so instinctive for them It was so crazy that rusty could feed only 15 min after he cam out!!All I can say is womens bodies are truly amazing and I wouldn't want it any other way ...I LOVE BEING A MOMMY!!!
