Pregnancy Tag

Ok... So I really don't have hardly any pictures of me pregnant! It's kind of sad. And all the ones I do have, I look horrible! If anybody has some pictures of me pregnant, could you email them to me? Seriously this is all I have. But... here they are... in all my glory.
This is at 2 months:

At 18 weeks (the day we found out he was a boy!):

At My baby shower in St. George- 34 weeks:

A few days before he was born- 36 weeks

1. Was your first pregnancy planned? Sort of... We weren't expecting it to be that soon, but we weren't doing anything to prevent it either. :)
2. Were you married at the time? Of course... for 1 month! :)
3. What were your reactions? Excited... a little scared.
4. Was abortion an option for you? NEVER!! (and never will be)
5. How did you find out you were pregnant? My friend Chantelle was also having signs of pregnancy, and she already had two kids... So I started telling her how I was feeling and she said, "I need to look at you". She drove over, took one look and said, "You definitely have the glow!". I also took a test at Marci's house (but didn't realize you had to let it sit for a while) and left thinking it was negative. She called me back a few minutes later and said it was positive and I didn't believe her. A week later, I came into town for an appointment, and finally took a positive test.
6. How old were you? 19
7. Who did you tell first? Jeff of course (We pretty much knew from the moment it happened. :), Marci, Chantelle and Brent, then our parents and grandparents.
8. Did you want to find out the sex of the baby? Definitely!
9. Due Date? April 27th, but he was measuring small (Had him April 2nd)
10. Did you have morning sickness? I was nauseated a LOT, but only threw up once just randomly (and one weekend because of the flu, and another time because of food poisoning)
11. What did you crave? Pizza... Didn't matter what time of day it was.
12. What irritated you the most? Having my back hurt so bad, and being SOOO swollen! I retained so much water!
13. What was your first child's sex? BOY!
14. Did you wish you were having the opposite sex of what you were getting? Not really, I was just kind of shocked it was a boy because I SOO thought it was a girl. But once I found out it was a boy I was so happy!
15. How many pounds did you gain during pregnancy? 40 something (I had gained 41 the week before he was born...)
16. Did you have a baby shower? Yes! My friends and family were so great! One of my baby showers had to be rescheduled because I had Dallin two days before it was supposed to happen.
17. Were your showers a surprise? No
18. Did you have any complications during pregnancy? Well, I had toxemia, which is why they finally gave into keeping me at the hospital (although my water broke on it's own an hour after we got there so we would have been back anyway)
19. Where did you give birth? Dixie Regional Medical Center
20. How many hours were you in labor? From start to Finish- 21 hours
21. Who drove you to the hospital? Jeff. We were in Cedar, so we had an hour drive (but better than Orderville which is two).
22. Was it a vaginal delivery or c-section? Vaginal delivery
23. Who watched the birth? Jeff, My doctor, and the nurses in the room.
24. Did you take medication to ease the pain? Oh yes! I went from 2:00 am to 6:00 pm without anything, and finally had a mental breakdown and got the epidural :). SOOO glad I did!
25. How much did your baby weigh? 5 lbs even
26. When was your baby actually born? April 2nd, 11:07 pm
27. What did you name him? For the first night of his life, his name was Jeremy. Then we heard the nurse call him that, and we both looked at each other and decided it TOTALLY wasn't him. The next morning we named him Dallin Joseph Corry. (Which is what Jeff actually called him the day of our ultrasound randomly).
28. How old is your first born, today? 2 years, 2 months and 26 days

This was so fun to read, and you looked great pregnant! Isn't it crazy how all the aches and pains of pregnancy are SO worth it once you get your little one?
