FC: Cambria Lin Lindsay | Baby's First Year!
1: REMEMBERING THE JOURNEY AND JOYFUL EXPERIENCES OF THE BIRTH & LIFE OF OUR BABY CAMBRIA LIN | 2/26/09
2: When Rob and I first got married, we knew right away that we wanted to start a family and not put it off. After many, many long months of trying and heartbreak and getting a big fat no every month we went to the doctor and they told us that they didn't know why I wasn't able to have babies. We went to countless doctors trying to find one that could tell us something, but no one really could We finally made an appointment with a fertility specialist in Denver to talk about our options. The morning of the appointment I took a pregnancy test because they make you do it anyway and i wanted to get the disappointment over with beforehand. I waited until Rob had gone to work because I knew it was hard for him to see my disappointment when the negative sign appeared. I put the test on the sink and went about getting ready for work. After three minutes I looked at the test and then threw it in the garbage. I did a double take and pulled it out of the garbage. Imagine my surprise when it said I was pregnant! After almost three long years of no, we finally got our yes!!! I sat on the bathroom floor and just cried. I was so overwhelmed with happiness! We were going to have a baby! Then I felt horrible because Rob wasn't there to share in the excitement. But then I got excited again because I was finally pregnant! Rob got home from work and I said, "I did something bad." (He had told me not to take the test without him.) He got a worried look on his face and said, "What?" I then gave him the test and he got the biggest smile on his face. I will never forget that look. We ran to the store to grab another test because I wanted to make sure this was real and not a fluke. Sure enough, it was true, we were going to have a baby!!! | FINALLY!!!
3: OUR LITTLE GUMMY BEAR 7/9/08
4: I was a teacher in a preschool when I found out I was pregnant. The other teacher in the room had the kids do a poll to see whether they thought this baby was a girl baby or a boy baby. It looks like the majority of the class was right, it was a girl baby!
6: My mom and Tara came to visit us while we lived in Denver. We had told them previously that the ultrasound tech wasn't able to find out the sex of the baby and we would just have to wait until it was born. Which was true, we just left out the part that we went back and got another ultrasound. They walked in our front room and this is what greeted them. We were having a baby girl!!!
8: Invite for baby shower thrown by sisters-in-law! | Invite for baby shower thrown by my mom!
9: Everyone left before we were able to find the camera! This is the baby shower at my mom's house. There were so many people who showed their love and support for us! Thank you all!
10: We are on our way! I started having contractions around 5:00 p.m. Rob got home from work around 8:00 p.m. and we waited until 9:00 p.m. to go to the hospital because I didn't want them to send me back home because I was too early. | This is one of my contractions that Rob was impressed with because it looked like the Manti Temple.
11: SHE'S FINALLY HERE! | Born Thursday February 26, 2009 2:32 p.m. 8 pounds 5 ounces 20 inches
12: EWe had quite the time getting our sweet girl here. When we got to the hospital they said that I was hyperstimulated and my contractions were coming faster and harder than they should have been but I wasn't dilating. I was so mad because I knew they were going to send me home! They said that with what my body was doing there was no way they were going to send me home. Dr. Cole came in and broke my water and I went from a 2 to a 10 in less than half an hour. Then the real fun came. They had given me an epidural, which one slightly worked, but because it has taken me so long to get anywhere it had run out well before it was time to push and they wouldn't give me anything else. I was about to push a baby out and I wanted drugs! But even with my begging and pleading, nothing. I pushed almost 2 1/2 hours before anything started to happen. Dr. Cole said that the baby was upside down and caught on my tail bone and that is why we were having such a hard time. Every mother waits for that awesome moment when they hear their baby cry for the first time. After my baby came out, i didn't get that. I looked down to see what was happening and my baby was blue with the cord wrapped twice around her neck and she wasn't breathing. I was terrified! Dr. Cole quickly cut the cord and handed her off to the awaiting nurses. I was sad that Rob wasn't able to cut the cord, but it was more important for the baby to get help. They finally got her breathing and she let out the most irritated cry I have ever heard, but it was the best sound ever! She was black and blue from head to toe from bruising from my tail bone, but she was perfectly healthy and perfect! | Black and Blue and Bruised all Over. . .
14: FIRST HOLIDAY | My parents felt bad for Rob having to stay up all night so they brought him Subway! Sure beats the heck out of the Jell-o and chicken broth they were giving me. . . . | Having a baby is really tough work, isn't it, Rob? | We had so many friends and family come and see us during our hospital stay. It was fun to share our little girl!
