We'd love for you to meet... Olivia Kate Weatherford!

Both Koby and I are madly in love with our little sweetie and still can't believe that she is ours to keep. Everything went well with labor and delivery. It was everything I expected it would be, but at the same time nothing like I expected it would be...if that makes any sense. Anyway, here are just a few pics as I don't have much time right now. But, I assure you, there will be many more to come!

No news news

Well, our last doctors visit was today. Everything went well. Basically, I'm still not dilated any further, but I'm fully effaced. The official due date is this Saturday, September
15th. If I haven't gone into labor by Monday then I'm scheduled to go in for an ultrasound and something he called a low-stress test. He said this would let us check out what everything looked like in the womb (baby, placenta, amniotic fluid) and this information would help Koby and I decide if and when we want to schedule to be induced. I pray that we don't make it until Monday, for several reasons...some selfish, some not. In the meantime I suppose we'll all just have to hurry up and wait!
In my most recent (and very rare) bursts of energy I went to the mall and found this cute onesie at Gymboree. Koby's face lit up when he saw it...and then he saw the receipt! Haha, just kidding. It was on sale. I don't even look at the regular priced items in that store! :)

Tuesday, September 11


So I leave work today at about noon and I walk outside to find...
That it is a b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l day! As I type this the temperature is 77 degrees with only 82% humidity. This is such a welcome just makes everything nicer.

There's still no news on the baby front. I have another appointment (the last one) tomorrow afternoon so hopefully I've made some progress from last time. Here's a picture that Koby took of me on Sunday. I wear this shirt all the time because I'm running out of shirts that are long (and big) enough to cover my belly. As you can see it just sticks strait out. This, in addition to having a long torso makes finding maternity shirts hard at this stage. Oh well, hopefully I won't have to worry about that for much longer!

There are just a few minor details that need done in the nursery, but for the most part it is finished.

39 Weeks

I had my 39 week doctor's appointment yesterday and everything still looks good. I have effaced to about 70% and am still only about 1cm dilated. I'm hoping that next week will be "the week". It's really just a wating game now and I'll admit that I'm not the most patient person.

Last night I was finishing packing my bag for the hospital and the checklist I was using suggested packing some CD's or music that might help me relax or stay calm during labor. We keep all our music on the computer so I opened up Media Player to create a playlist. Anyway, I guess since my mind was focused on giving birth and all that good stuff quite a few song titles struck me as funny. Here are just few...
  • "Push"- Matchbox 20
  • "Take it to the Limit"- The Eagles
  • "Vasoline"- Stone Temple Pilots
  • "I Will Survive"- Cake
  • "What's Your Mama's Name?"- Tanya Tucker
  • "Hold My Hand"- Hootie and the Blowfish
  • "Papa Don't Preach"- Madonna
  • "Help!"- the Beatles
  • "Don't Do Me Like That"- Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
  • "Counting the Days"- Collective Soul
  • "Harder to Breathe"- Maroon 5
  • "Lay Your Hands on Me"- Bon Jovi
  • "Something in the Way"- Nirvana
  • "Man! I Feel Like a Woman"- Shania Twain

Catch up

Where to start...I guess the game. We made it to the A&M game on Saturday and had a really great time. The weather wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. We parked at my building and walked to Kyle field and when we got to our seats, they were already shaded over. So I didn't have to sit and bake in the sun! The only hard part was walking back to the truck. I was already really stiff and a little bit sore from the sitting/standing of the game that I was huffing and puffing at least the last part of the walk. I figured it was good for me though and since we had already seen the game, we were both just fine with labor starting! :)

(So I made a slide show to insert here and it is not working for whatever reason and I've lost my patience so I will try again later...)

I guess we had a pretty good weekend. I've been trying to rest up and take it easy. A&M didn't have Labor Day off, but I ended up not going in anyway. I had a really rough night on Sunday night so I slept in on Monday and then figured I might as well stay home for the rest of the day. Koby came home at lunch and we ate and went to the movies. We saw the Bourne Ultimatum with Matt Damon and some other people...pretty much I just remember Matt Damon! Haha, just kidding! Anyway, it was a pretty good movie, intense, but good.
