Introducing Baby Kelley

Sunday morning at 4 Am I woke up with contractions. Around 6 Am I woke Kyle up letting him know that I was having contractions and I needed him to start timing them. After about 20 minutes of timing them we found out that they were every 3 to 5 minutes apart so we got up and texted some friends to see who could come over and watch the girls while we went to the hospital. Our friends Mark and Kjerstie were the first to respond and they were at the house by 7sh. Kyle and I took off to the hospital sometime around 7:30 Am and ended up checking into the hospital. They hooked me up to all the monitors and found out that I was in fact in Labor but was only dilated 3 cm. After an hour no progress so they got me up to walk the halls for about an hour. After an hour of walking the halls I only dilated 1 cm so they ended up telling me to go home and walk up and down my stairs.. I WAS NOT HAPPY!!! I didn't want to be one of those girls that jumped the gun and ended up getting released due to false labor.. good thing was I was actually in labor but just wasn't dilating as quickly as they wanted. So we ended up going home around 11 Am. I was so tired of walking the halls at the hospital that I came home sat down on the couch and passed out for about two hours. Then woke up and decided it was time to walk the stairs. After I had taken all the boxes of girl clothes down to the basement and brought the baby bassinet up to our bedroom and other little baby things upstairs I decided it was time to sit down. After a few hours of walking and sitting around 6 PM I decided that the contractions were just getting to the point where I couldn't bear it.. So Kyle and I packed everything back up and headed back to the hospital. We got back to the hospital around 6:30. It was really funny going back because the front desk lady as well as the nurses from the morning/day shift were just leaving and they all made sure to come say hello. The only one that was still on from that morning was the on call doctor and she made sure to come in and stay with me. They took me to my room checked my dilation to see that I was now at 6 cm so they decided it was time to get me my epidural. The anesthesiologist came right in and hooked me up. After I got hooked up they waited 15 minutes and decided that it was time to break my water since they had just called my doctor to come for the delivery. They popped my water at 7:15 and baby Kelley entered the world at 7:35 PM on Sunday April 10, 2011. The labor portion on this pregnancy was a lot worse considering I had to do a majority of it at home but the delivery was probably the fastest and easiest I've ever had. It wasn't until Monday evening that Kyle and I finally picked the perfect name for our little boy. TROY ALLAN KELLEY!!!

Happy Birthday Nick

April 3rd is my cousin Nick's birthday and since the 3rd was on a Sunday this year we celebrated with Nick on the 2nd and the 3rd. Saturday the 2nd after the priesthood session of conference we met up with Nick and all his friends at the Provo Beach Resort for the guys to all go surfing. It was a lot of fun watching the guys. I think it would have been cool to try out but being eight months pregnant I didn't think it was a wise idea... So I ended up being the official photographer of the evening. Here's some pictures of Saturdays events... Kyle Surfing
