Abigail Mae

Abigail arrived at 7:39 Saturday evening. She had a little trouble once Mom's water broke; her heart rate dropped suddenly, so the doctor decided that we needed to get her out quick. Mom had an emergency c-section, which was a bit hard on all parties involved. Abigail and her Mom are tough though, and are in great shape. We are still hoping that Dad will recover.

Abby weighed 6 pounds 8 ounces and was 19 inches long at birth. She has been very patient with her parents as they learn to take care of her.

We wanted to post a couple of videos so everyone can see how cute our little girl is. Dad likes the first video because his hand adds a little perspective of how tiny she is.

39 Weeks and the End of the Semester

My due date is in 6 days and I'm feeling better than I ever expected to feel at this point in my pregnancy. I finished work on Monday, my classes yesterday, and am hoping to have my finals done by this Saturday (hopefully the baby will cooperate, so far she has been very obedient).

On Monday they said I was dilated to 1.5 and 70% effaced. They offered to strip my membranes, but I declined because I would rather get this semester over with before she comes. We are getting excited, although it still seems crazy that I could go into labor at any moment.

Landon is all done for the semester and I am very jealous. We are doing well, just waiting for our life to completely change in a few days! Here is a picture of me at 39 weeks. I look a lot bigger than I actually feel!
