40 weeks - DUE TODAY!

Liberty Ann Wyatt is due today 3.31.10. But, after a checkup at the Dr at 5pm today, contractions till 10pm, and a prediction from our Dr. that "you'll be in labor by 8am tomorrow morning" - Liberty is still hangin' out and has not been born yet! (p.s. I'm 3, 80%, -1)

Maybe she'll come this Easter weekend.
Next Dr. apt is Monday if we haven't given birth by then!

Still waiting...

UPDATE: It's April 1 and I'm still pregnant. No baby yet:(

We've been waiting around for Liberty to make her entrance into the world. I haven't had a single painful contraction and I'm getting anxious to have this girl outta here (she's bruising my liver). We've had such an enjoyable pregnancy that I waver between wanting her to take her time, and other days I'm ready to mommy her and wish she was HERE for us to love on.
We've been taking lots of walks and even trespassed to do some swinging this weekend. Come on Liberty - join the fun! 3 days till due date...

39 weeks - 7 days till Due Date!

Not much to say...we are just waiting for little miss Liberty to show up! The Dr. said no change in my labor progress at this weeks appointment. (still 2, 60%, -1). Cameron and I have been lounging around, taking short walks and enjoying the 75* weather with time out on our patio with Cheetah Girl. Last weekend we made some extra room in the garage & laundry room for our stroller/baby stuff, did some grocery shopping and are just trying to pass the time...
If you try to call or email me and get an auto-away message...that's a hint we are at the hospital!

Kelly's Baby Shower

My good friend Kelly had her baby shower this weekend. She is 33 weeks and lives nearby - so we've had a good time comparing pregnancy notes. We are looking forward to being first time mommies together. Kelly and Ben are going to be surprised by their baby's gender - so Liberty must anxiously wait to learn about her new playmate. Here is a picture of the gang at Kelly's shower - we are all in Book Club together and a Married Ladies social group. Samineh and Chelsea (on the right) are new mommies of a 6 month old and a 10 month old. And Cheray on the left is 20 weeks pregnant - something is in the water at book club!

38 Weeks

Here we are at 38 weeks. My latest Dr. appointment has us progressing nicely. Cameron and I were a little shocked when the Dr. offered to "move things along" and told us we could potentially have her within 48 hours. We said no thanks and plan to enjoy at least 1 last weekend planning for her arrival and savoring sleep/restaurants/quiet. Also, my good friend Kelly who is 5 weeks behind me in her pregnancy is having her baby shower this weekend and I don't want to miss it! I spent some time this week working, going to a Spring Training game and walking 1.5 miles at Boyce Thompson Arboretum. Still no contractions!!
We are SO EXCITED that she'll be joining the family so soon, I can't wait to hold her! Please pray that our delivery goes as smoothly as this pregnancy has! Stand-by.

37 Weeks - Full-Term

So I'm having a baby anytime now.
If born today she'd be healthy. The longer she stays, the more plump she gets. Dr. said she's 6 pounds right now!
I'm not feeling any contractions yet, but Liberty is low and I'm progressing right along.
(for those that really care I'm 1-2, 60%, -1).

Liberty's Nursery

Here is the photo album of Liberty's Nursery! Click on the slideshow to see pictures bigger.

A couple special things to note:
  • I bought the handmade pink and white dress on the Island of Capri, Italy on our honeymoon 5 years ago.
  • Some of our maternity photo shoot photos are on the wall. Later the gallery can change to showcase pictures of Liberty.
  • The two photos in the closet are baby pictures of Cameron and I. My sister Kelly crocheted the bib (and the critter on the changing table).
  • Bookclub girlfriends made the Glider a reality. Kelsey generously gave us the glider, and Terra reupholstered it (pillow too!). Oh and Jen made the diaper wreath on the door!
  • Liberty has her own library reading nook thanks to all the wonderful gifts of books at my baby shower!

36 Weeks

Here we are at 36 weeks! Next week Liberty will be a full-term baby and is welcome to come any time. My Dr. appointment revealed that she's head down and low in my pelvis - the Dr. was actually surprised how much Liberty dropped already and thinks my March 31 due date is right on target. So, maybe my predictions of an April baby are all wrong! She's still rolling and moving a lot. Cameron and I go on waddle-walks when we can, try to guess the body part that occasionally is bulging from my belly, and have pulled out the suitcase to pack for the hospital.

35 Weeks!

Don't have much to say this week. Our appointments will soon start to tell us how big they think she'll be, and how close I'm getting to labor and delivery. Feeling large but surprisingly good. I think all the ice cream is helping with my heartburn:)

Getting Ready!!

We've been getting everything ready for Liberty's arrival - she could be here anytime this month! Cameron installed the car seat and practiced on a baby doll. He has also set up a Pack N Play, Stroller and Swing recently.

The nursery is undergoing FINAL touches! Pictures to come SOON! It's been so fun decorating a room from scratch!
