Today is Just a Normal Day

...for most people. But for me, this is the day that I birthed our sweet little babe. I can't believe how fast time has gone by. People tell me all the time that it goes by fast, but you never really comprehend that saying...

I went into labor around 6pm on Sunday, January 24, 2010. Hubbs and I were hanging out at his brother's house. My SIL and I were talking about how much of a pain this child that I was carrying is, since she decided to turn at the last minute (she was breech) to avoid a previously scheduled C-Section that past Friday. All of a sudden, the contractions start! They weren't that bad at first. They really felt like my Braxton Hicks that I had been having since I was in my 23rd week of pregnancy. Finally, Hubbs decided to start timing them. Lo and behold they were about 1 minute apart! I didn't want to go into the hospital again and leave without a baby, so we decided to go home and let me rest.

We get home, and at this point I'm balling my eyes out. They hurt so bad! So, I tell hubbs to pack everything up and to rush to the hospital. They put me in triage, and start monitoring me and the baby. The nurse came back and said that there was no way I was going to be leaving here pregnant, so they checked us in. They broke my water around 6am, and I progressed pretty quickly after that. They gave me my epidural when I was 3cm dilated (about the time they broke my water). Finally, it was time to bare down push (fyi, I never pooped on the table and my epidural ran out. Let me tell you that "ring of fire" is real!). Emily Ann Jolly entered the world and changed my life forever on January 25th, 2010 at 5:35pm.

Emily, my lovely amazing daughter, you are everything to me. When you smile, I smile. When you laugh (oh how I love your laugh), I laugh. When you cry, I cry. I'm the one who bathes you, feeds you, comforts you, and protects you. You are everything I've ever wanted, and I thank God everyday for you. It is because of you that I fought so hard when I was diagnosed with PPD/Anxiety. It is on this day that I remember who I do everything for. Happy Birthday baby girl!

Today is not just a normal day.

Have any of you heard of this before? It's a program called Superpoints, and it is invite only. Apparently, I've been  member since October but I've just recently (within the last 2 days) started participating in it. I've earned 210 points, and that is just within the past two days.

"The Superpoints Network is a collection of sites where you can win and earn Superpoints that can be redeemed for great rewards."

They have some pretty awesome rewards. I'm going to post some invite, but remember...these are one time use only invites, so act fast! I'm loving the whole thing, and any points your referrals make, you make as well! Pretty awesome, huh?

I hope everyone has a great weekend! I'm pretty sure Hubbs, Emily and I will be going out to the family farm tomorrow. Hubbs is still undecided, but I think it would be great fun! Don't forget the giveaway ends at midnight on Sunday, so get in those entries!

A Migraine and Photoshop

I had the misfortune of experiencing my first migraine last night. I used to listen to my mom complain about hers, but I have never experienced this before. I felt nauseous! My head hurt so bad that I seriously thought it was just going to explode from pressure. Thank goodness for my husband though! He normally gets migraines, so he had some Excedrin Migraine in the cabinet. I took 1, and about 30 minutes later...migraine was gone!

Does anyone use Photoshop? I'm sitting here playing around and trying to design blogger templates. Maybe I'll end up posting some and seeing if there is any demand for them.

Let's talk about

fertility. Hubbs and I have been trying since December 2010 to get pregnant with baby #2. Obviously, it hasn't worked out so well. I've tried drinking POM juice (which is disgusting, btw), I've tried holding my hips up in the air after hubbs finishes (all that has gotten me is an infection), and for about 4 months I was charting. I just don't really know the answer. I feel like I haven't put my all into trying, but it is really exhausting. Then, I've been spotting since January 8th. Yes, I'm still spotting.

I guess I'll just give my all at charting, buy some ovulation tests, and just relax. Maybe that's the problem. I mean, I'm only 25 and we have had one successful pregnancy (I've been pregnant a total of 3 times, 2 ended in miscarriage). So I don't think it would be a fertility problem.
