She's Finally Here!! April 7th, 2010!

Friday morning April 2nd 2010
I was having the worst labor pains, so we went to the hospital. 2cm dilated, not enough to be admitted, so we walked around the hospital for two hours, but it seemed like eternity!! When we returned I was 2 1/2 cm dilated, still can't be admitted, so home sweet home we went.

Sunday night April 4th 2010
Major back labor pains, waayyy worse then before, waited a few hours at home before going. Measuring 3 cm dilated... still can't be admitted!! Wonderful, I just love having these stabbing pains in my back at all hours of the night, just hoping they would go away.

Tuesday Night into Wednesday morning April 6th and 7th 2010
Ok, this time the pain was 100 times worse, Brad being the wonderful husband he is said, "Lets wait a few hours so we don't go and end up getting sent back home." easy for him to say and back to bed he went, while I was in PAIN!! Finally I woke him up sometime around 4:45 am and said we need to go to the hospital NOW!!
(I forgot to mention, I wanted to have a natural birth because I'm not a fan of needles and I already had to get a an epidural when my cervix was stitched and I'm one of those people who if there's side affects, I get them. And sure enough when I had the epidural for my stitch I itched like crazy and it was just the most uncomfortable feeling ever!! So because of that I wanted to go natural.)
When we got to the hospital they checked me and I was at 4cm dilated... whoop whoop I've been waiting for this day for 9 months! I was admitted and put in my own little room in the High Risk part of Labor and Delivery. About 1 hour after being there, they broke my water... It was at that moment in time that I couldn't go natural.. I was feeling really nauseous and yep you guessed it, threw up and not just a little bit, it just kept coming out... luckily is was just liquid. I was in pain and all I wanted was an epidural.
The doctor didn't get the epidural right the first time and had to do it over. Once I got it, it was like heaven!! No more pain. So about 3 hours later I told the nurse one side of my body was a lot more numb, so she had me turn to my other side. Little did I know that when I was checked again one side of me was fully dilated and the other wasn't, So I turned again and when the doctor came in to check me I was ready to start pushing. I was so overwhelmed with excitement, but scared and nervous at the same time. Little did I know after pushing for about 20 min or so that I would be meeting the most beautiful little baby ever.
Avery Coredila Collins was born on April 7th 2010 at 7:24 pm. Weighing in at 6lbs 12 oz and 20 inches long. My life couldn't get much better then this! She's the perfect mixture of mommy and daddy! She reminds me a lot of her older sister Kiarra! I'm so very thankful to my Heavenly Father for blessing me with this perfect child! She brings soo much happiness into mine and Brad's life! We love her and can never get enough of her! My long 17 hours of labor was worth it, those past 9 months were worth it!

It's Easter and No Baby Yet!!

I love this time of Year!! I must say, I was hoping that Avery would decide to come before Easter, but I guess she wanted to roast a little longer. The little kid inside me, loves this holiday! Especially when Gma Cordy does it. She always makes yummy food, puts on a fun Easter egg hunt (I still partake in it, you can never be to old) and gives everyone fun Easter baskets. The past three years my family has been invited and my nieces and nephews love it! I remember growing up and always getting excited for Easter and Christmas. My grandparents would always do the best Easter egg hunt when I was growing up. When my Aunt Cathy passed away, we just kind of stopped doing the family stuff and it was like a void during that time of year. I'm so glad Grandma Cordy believes that every Holiday is a time to party! It makes me think of my Aunt Cathy and how much she was like Grandma Cordy, always wanting to have a good time! So thank you Gma Cordy for making that void no longer be there and continuing the tradition! It's something I will continue to do with my family as it grows. Took a few, pics so enjoy...

It's about Time!!!

Me and My Adorable Niece Desea

Well I haven't updated my blog in well.. FOREVER!! So what better time then now, when the baby is sleeping and work doesn't start for another hour!! So lets start with the most AMAZING baby shower my Best Friend Jacqueline threw for me in March. Boy does she know how to put on a shower/party! It was lots of fun.. yummy food... and good company.

Thank you Jack and family for throwing yet another wonderful party for me. I'm lucky to have you guys in my life. Jack your amazing and I can't thank you enough, what would a girl do without her best friend! Avery loves her Auntie Jack and loves the many gifts she received from everyone. To those who came, thank you for being a part of our lives we love you!!

32 Weeks...

Our little Avery Cordelia was measuring 4lbs 4oz today!! This is a picture that I got today at my appointment... I think she is going to look a lot like her daddy, just like her sister Kiarra did!! She's been moving around like crazy inside my tummy.. I guess she takes after me because Brad wasn't very active from what he tells me. WE are getting soo excited! Time has gone by so fast and I think it's only going to keep going by faster. I'm excited to meet and hold my beautiful little girl.. it's only a matter of time!! We love you Avery!!

I'm so excited to be an Auntie again!! Lots of people think that she looks like Jazzy, but I'd have to disagree! I love her sooo much and plan on spoiling her just as much as I do my other nieces and nephews!! Seeing her in the hospital makes me more and more anxious for my little Avery to arrive... 27 weeks down.. 13 to go! I can't wait!!
