Announcing London Lynn Thorn

Born on St. Patrick's Day (Thursday, March 17, 2011) at 6:55 am. Our little good luck charm!

Our story starts on Tuesday 3.15.2011, Jesse and I were sitting watching TV that evening and he turns and asks me, "Should I keep carpooling into work or should I start driving in just in case you go into labor?" I thought for a split second, "Na! You are fine to keep carpooling. I think it will be a few more days." HA!!! Famous last words!
I get to work the next day and we had a final meeting to make sure we had everything covered for when I left. Then missy C and I went and moved her desk over to mine, then went and ate lunch. I was feeling great! We get upstairs at about 1 pm, started working and I go to the copy machine to scan an order to the factory and........... my water breaks!!!! My heart started bounding and I thought to myself "did I just pee my pants? How embarrassing! No.... wait! I think my water broke!"
So I waddle to the bathroom and I passed C and told her that I think my water had just broken, and the first thing out of her mouth was, "I haven't read that chapter yet!" My cute friend was going to read "what to do when you go into labor at work" so that she could help me if this happened. Well indeed my water did break! I called Jesse on our way out to the car.
"Honey, um..... you won't believe this BUT my water just broke!"
"Are you sure you didn't just pee your pants?"
"Um... okay. (Insert him panicking and frantically shutting down his computer and gathering his stuff). Let me see if I can catch a ride to my car. See ya in a bit. Love ya!"
"Okay! Hurry! I love you too!"
Missy C drove me to IMC and we were both laughing that this is all happening like this! I was so excited and nervous! I check into the hospital, get changed into the loverly hospital gown and the nurse start getting me hooked up to all the machines. With in the next ten minutes my mom was there and then a few minutes after that my dad made it. All the sudden Jesse showed up at 2 pm! If you remember right I called him at 1 pm and it takes about a little more than an hour for him to get to our place in Draper! Once he got to his car he FLEW up to the hospital!! Thats my babe!!
Well, when I got to the hospital I was dialating at all. So they put me on potocin to help, but I think it may have slowed things down. My contractions started and actually got close together. By 3 pm my contractions were 1:30 to 2 minutes apart, so with the history of my moms side of delivering their babies super fast I was thinking that would happen. So I decided to get my epidural.
In the evening our Doctor made it downstairs and checked me. Jesse asked him if we would be having a baby tonight or if we will have a St. Paddy's day baby? And he said for sure a St. Paddy's day baby!
17 hours after my water broke, I started pushing at 6 am and our beautiful baby girl was born at 6:55 am! She was 7 lbs 2 oz and 22 inches.
She is the sweetest, cutest baby and we are so blessed to have her here with us!!
Welcome to the world London! We love you!!

Time for an update!

Well, I think it is finally time for an update! What do you think?

We are in our 32nd week! Craaazy! Where has the time gone!
We are so excited and nervous, but can't wait to have our cute little girl here to hold and love. Here are a couple of pics.

Here I am at...
At this point she was breech. And our doctor told us that she should flip in a couple of weeks or so. Our doctor is amazing! I have no idea how he could tell that she was breech by pressing on my stomach just a couple times.

Here I am at...
I have popped! This picture was just taken on Saturday and I have grown even farther since. We saw the doctor on Friday and our little girl has flipped! No more breech. Wahoo!

I can feel her moving all the time and I LOVE it!! Any chance that I get, I will grab Jesse's hand and have him feel her. His eyes get wide and he will say, "Holy Cow baby girl!"

We get alot of movement out of her after I eat chocolate (She is definitely our child! She is taking after Grandpa Flavel and Grandpa Ryan for sure!) In fact, I just had some cookies and cream ice cream (yum!) and she is going crazy right now.

On another note...

Here are a few things I have been looking at. Tell me what you think.
