Birth Plan

Today, I had some extra time to sit down and make my birth plan! At first, I felt a little lost so I did some research to see what all I needed to make sure to put down and things that needed to be stated! Then I went ahead and wrote down some of my major priorites and then I typed it all up and it's now ready to go! Only about 10-13 weeks left until we will need to put it into play!! only 89 more days until Hunter's Due Date!!!!!

I will share this with you guys!

My Birth Plan
When Labor begins, start timing contractions and when they get to be about 5 minutes apart for about an hour, call the hospital and let them know..
Get all our stuff packed up and put into the car
Call the Grandparents to let them know that we are on the way to the hospital.
The Carseat should already be in the car, just make sure that it is tightly fastened and ready to go!
pack ourselves into the car and LET"S GO HAVE OUR SON! =D
When checking in let the desk know that i am already pre-registered!
Pray The whole time!!


I would like to try and go as long as possible without my epidural. BUT if i am in pain, PLEASE, let the Dr. know that i'm ready!
When I am being checked Vaginally to see how far along, I only want Jarrod in the room!
I don't mind if our families are in the room while i'm getting ready and transitioning, but once the Dr. says that "It's time to push" I only want Jarrod, myself, the Dr & Nurses to be in the room!
If I look like I am going to tear, please tell the Dr. that I want an episiotomy


Only Jarrod's and Dr's in the room!!'
I would like a mirror available so I can see Hunter's head when it crowns
I would like to have Hunter placed on my stomach/chest immediately after delivery
I would like to have My Husband cut the cord.
I would like to hold Hunter while I deliver the placenta and any tissue repairs are made.
I would like to have Hunter evaluated and bathed in my room
I plan to keep Hunter near me following birth and would like it if the evaluation of Hunter can be done with Hunter on my abdomen, with both of us covered by a warm blanket, unless there is an unusual situation.
If Hunter must be taken from me to receive medical treatment, My Husband will accompany Hunter at all times.

Breast Feeding

I plan to breastfeed Hunter and would like to begin nursing very shortly after birth, and I would really like it if the Sugar water would not be given to him unless it's needed.
I would like more information about breastfeeding.
I would like to meet with a lactation consultant.


Hunter is to be circumcised before we leave the hospital.

I'm sure that I am missing a few things on here but I have plenty of time to continue to update it! =D

26 weeks preggers and funny stuff!!

Well, On wednesday I went in for my normal monthly check up. I got to do the gestational diabetes testing and PASSED! I eat a lot of chocolate, hence the excitment on passing! I also got to see my sweet boy again, which was a suprise I didn't know I was going to get to do another sonogram! He is getting so big! Kin (our tech) said that he has my eyelashes and some pouty lips! Yaaay, I was so excited I really wanted him to have his daddy's lips! =D He is growing up a storm and measuring about 3 days ahead! maybe we will get to see him a few days earlier! (hopeful thinking)..... However, I realized that in 11-14 weeks we will be meeting our little Hunter! I'm sooo excited! He is started to get MUCH stronger with all of his kicks and movements! I just love it!

Okay, so i told you that i had some funny stuff too, here goes- The other day while i was getting dressed i felt something drip on my belly and i immediately thought "not the roof" so i had Jarrod get on a chair and check and sure enough nothing wet!! I looked down and my right boob was wet! yep, its already starting to leak! my left one has a little clear clostrum! Its crazy but really awesome that my body is preparing for Hunter! Its exciting! ha ha..

well i'm off to grab some much needed dinner! yummmmmmmmm

99 days until we meet Hunter!!

Picture taken 25 weeks Preggo!! 05/23/09

Holy Moly! I just realized that I only have 99 days until i meet my son (+ or -)
I can't believe how fast my pregnancy has gone. Last night on the way home from dinner i told my hubby that "Can you believe anywhere from 12-15 weeks we will be meeting our son?". He didn't realize how quickly it had gone either!

Hunter's room is coming together and my son already has TONS and TONS of clothes and we have yet to have a shower! (all given to us!) Almost every day i just walk into his room to look at his crib and changing table/dresser and think how awesome it is going to be to go in his room to check on him!!

I;m so thankful that the Lord is giving my husband and I this blessing! It is a true gift. I pray for my little boy everyday that he will be in love with his Savior, Jesus Christ! I am also praying that Jarrod and I are godly parents to him! I'm sure there are going to be many days when we fall short but Praise God that he continually lifts us back up each day and makes a new day for us!

Focusing On Family....

I feel so blessed to be able to carry this baby boy in my womb. It has already shown rewarding effects on my life! Firstly, I have to thank God for blessing and opening up my womb, it truly is a gift. Jarrod and I are so very thankful every single day!

I have started to prepare for being a godly mommy, I want my son to thrive to know his Lord and Savior! My very sweet husband suprised me and brought home "Shepparding A Child's Heart". I was thrilled! I really wanted to read a godly book on parenting as well as reading God's word to sheppard my sweet son! I know that you can't be fully prepared when bringing a child into this world, but what better way than to keep yourself girded up with Christ's word!

I have noticed a nuturing side in myself, I am already protective and looking for what's best for Hunter! When I read the word in the mornings I do it aloud, I know that Hunter May not be able to hear me just yet but I want to start telling my son about His PRECIOUS Savior!! I strive to always take care of my family to the best of my ability! I love being able to keep my house clean for my husband, making sure Jarrod has clean clothes, supper,etc. It's such a blessing to be a Wife and now a soon to be mommy!! I thank the Lord every day for giving me such a wonderful life!!

Jarrod and I pray for Hunter all the time, we know how much of a gift he is and also that he is not promised to us, but we serve a GRACIOUS God who is growing him in my belly!! I can't express how grateful for my family I am!!

What a Wonderful Resurrection Day!!

Happy Belated Resurrection Day To Everyone!!
What a Glorious day it was! My Hubby and I got to wake up another day and give all the praise and glory to our wonderful Savior! We serve a wonderful Savior who gave up his sinless life to save ours! He was beaten beyond recognition and hung on a cross, for all the sins of the world! I can't imagine taking the pain for just 1 other person's sin! What an awesome God we serve!! We serve a RISEN Savior!! Praise the Lord!!

During church Hunter was moving all around! It's the most amazing feeling!! I rested my arms on the top of my belly and he would kick them off! I can't believe how much he has grown already and how strong he already is!! Jarrod is soooooo in love with his son!! He is always given my belly (Hunter) kisses and we talk about how much we can't wait to meet him!! well we definately want him to be ready to come into this world first!! =D We are continuously praying for the Lord to keep His gracious hand over our son!!

Only about 20 1/2 weeks until we can meet our Son!! I can't believe that I'm almost 20 weeks!!
