Celes Marie Burgess is finally here!

Celes Marie Burgess was born June 21, 2010 at 5:44 pm. She weighed 7 lbs 2 oz and was 19 1/2 inches long. She is such a good baby and we love her!

This picture was taken about 15 minutes after I gave birth. I still hadn't gotten to see her yet because she wasn't wanting to breathe. When they broke my water, there was a little bit of meconium in the fluid so they called in a respiratory therapist to examine her right after birth. They had a little trouble getting her to breathe because she had so much mucus and fluid in her. After about 30 minutes, I got to finally hold her.

This is Josh getting to see her for one of the first times.

This is her right after they finished suctioning her.

This is her 3 days old. She loves to lay like this so we had to take her picture! Every time we lay her down or hold her, she immediately goes into this ball. She loves to cuddle! She is SO cute!

Still Prego...

Just a little update on the situation:

I'm still pregnant, in case any of you were wondering. I went to the doctor today and he said I was at a 3, 80% effaced, and she is at a -1 position. This was good news for us because she has been VERY comfortable at a 2, 70-80%, and a -2 position for the last 4 weeks. It didn't help comfort me when they handed me the induction appointment/instructions paper... Hopefully it doesn't come to that though! He stripped my membranes again and hopefully she will be here soon!

Baby "bump" Week 39

These are some recent belly pictures. 39 weeks... Only 10 days left(or less!)

So here is hopefully my last blog post while I'm pregnant. I have gone through the scared phase where I didn't want to have her anytime soon and now I've moved on to the "I want to have her now!" phase.

I am betting that it will be Friday afternoon at 4 pm. One of our friends called Saturday at 12:30 am. What's your guess?
