Delay in posts due to...

Yes, she's here! Last Monday, the 1st, I had another doctor appt. and he wanted me to go to the hospital for an NST (non-stress test) for the baby. So, the next morning, Juan and I went to the hospital for the test and they discovered that my fluid level was low and they didn't want to send me home because it could be dangerous for the baby, so they said they would start labor that very day. Of course, we hadn't brought my bag or anything because it was supposed to just be a routine test. I had no idea I'd be staying. Wow! (I remember having a feeling the night before that said, "put your stuff in the car, even if you have to just take it out...") Shoulda done that! At about 10:00 am, they started labor and all through the day, things were going very good, I was having some good contractions and I was being strong. I thought, "I can breathe through these contractions, I'll try it without the epidural." Ha! Near the end, I was saying, "I'm going to kill someone! Bring in the epidural!" And they did. I went nice and numb. But then, when they kept saying, "We need you to turn over," I was like, "I cannot move!" and they had to push and pull me to whatever side they needed me on. I was not dilating past a 4 the whole day, and they said the baby was face-up (or, opposite of what she was supposed to be to come out.) Finally, they concluded that my pelvis is not big enough to pass a baby through and said they were going to give me a c-section. I think the baby was going into a little stress also and they wanted to get her out. So, at about 9:30 or so, they upped the epidural and then I really couldn't move and they still needed me to get onto my side. They gave me some other stuff and the doctor said, "This will make you shake, by the way." Yeah, shake! I felt like I was freezing to death and I shivered so much, my teeth were chattering (is that the right word?) I would shiver uncontrollably at times. They wheeled me into the delivery room and the whole time they were doing the procedure, I just shivered so much. Juan was there holding my hand. I was feeling drugged up and in a dream-world, but I remember hearing the doctors' various conversations. They told Juan to come and look at the baby when she was out and he did, he got some pictures of her with a thing over her face (I'll have to post later.) So, she was born December 2nd at 10:46 pm, 20 1/2 inches long, 6 lbs. 7 oz. and she has a LOT of black hair and dark blue eyes (they look sapphire to me). She is such a doll. I love her so much. Now, I'm just trying to get into this first-time-mothering thing and I don't think I'm very good at it, in my opinion. I guess we'll get there someday. I'll post baby pictures as soon as I can, she's so dang cute!!

Finally! Some good news!

I went to the doctor this morning and received very good news! (I know, I should relish every last moment of sleep that I can...baby's days in there are numbered!) I am 70% effaced and dilated to a two, so she should come in a couple of days hopefully. (And yes, I'm still keeping your guesses in sight.) I have another doctor appt. next Monday, but hopefully I won't have to use it, and he said if I do have to use it and I haven't had her yet, they will induce me on Tuesday the 9th. In conclusion, I will definitely have her by next week! What did I say in the last post about little Princess moving her butt? Well, she's moving her butt! :)

Saturday, November 29, 2008

Ohh, the agony!

I mean - the agony of waiting these last few days for little baby Silva to come! She is due this coming Thursday (Dec. 4th) so we'll see what happens! I go to the Dr. again on Monday and he said if we go a week over Dec. 4th, they'll induce me. But I'm so hoping that there's some good news on Monday. I'm so anxious to have her out of there! I'll let you know if there's some dilating going on!! It's time for little Princess to move her butt! Someone put a fork in her, she's DONE! (At least I think so.)

Nuttin' new yet...

? ? ? ? ?

I went to the dr. again last Monday and I was telling him what the ultrasound tech said about the baby being two weeks smaller than the Dec. 4th date and he said they give a window of 22 days either way, (mentioning a Dec. 17th date this time, grr, she'll stay in there forever, I feel like!) Anyway, he checked me and as of that day, I was dilated to about a one and a half, but no effacing yet. I've been having pelvic pains, which he said was normal, I'm just getting ready to deliver. Anyway, so he said, "We'll see about due date as we go along..." I'm getting soooo anxious to be done and have her out, but I'm trying to not be frustrated. I gotta be patient. As my mom put it, we've just got to leave it in the Lord's hands, He knows when the time is right for her to come. Just trying to be patient....I'm just kinda sad that she won't be here before Sarelle leaves to go back to Georgia the day after Thanksgiving. I was so hoping she'd be able to see the baby. Oh well. :)
My mom says it's paybacks for me being 14 days late myself - hahaha. Guess so. I'll keep ya'all updated.

Guess-the-weight-and-date contest!

As was suggested by my Aunt, I'm holding a contest. Post your guess for when the baby will be born and the size she'll be. Closest will get...something. I don't know yet. This might be fun! Hint: she is approximately 5.5 lbs. right now. :) Alright guessers - GO!

What?! Move my date back??

So I went to the doctor last Monday and he was looking through my file. At my first ultrasound, the tech had said she was a little smaller than we thought - like maybe we were a week off or something. So when Dr. Holmes was looking through my file, he said maybe we should get another ultrasound to make sure the baby was looking normal in there. He also said it looked like a NEW due date of Dec. 4th. That means my ticker is off! (I just adjusted the baby thing below the ticker, so anytime between the two, I guess.) Anyway, yesterday, I went to the ultrasound and had fun looking at her again in there. I saw her head and face (sorta - after the tech pointed it out.) The tech said she has more fat on her cheeks now, and she was sucking! It was so cute! Her foot is right in front of her face, it looked like she was sucking on it. hehe. She is still kind of small - in fact, the tech said she's like 2 weeks smaller than the Dec. 4th date, Ugh! However, it might just be that she's not growing or something - she's not off the charts, she is still within the boundaries, so it's not like she's abnormally small, just a little smaller than usual. The tech said that the next time I go to the doctor, he'll measure me again and if she's not growing, they may take her early. The tech also said she has short legs. Juan came home and was comparing our legs, lol. We're both not very tall, I think she just takes after her mama - I don't have very long legs. I think she's ready to come, though, she is head-down. Really, in my opinion, I think she could come anytime, we'll have to see. The Lord knows. :) I'll keep you updated, just wanted to let you know the latest. I'm so excited to have her out of there and be finished, but I must be patient. We want her to be healthy, after all.

My preggo pic!

I had to get a picture of me preggo before it's too late, so now's a good time. Here I am. I'm getting excited! Thanks for all your advice on what to pack, I'm in the process! It could be anytime! Love you all!

Halloween at work!

Pic 1 Kathy as a puppy doggy, pic 2 (don't remember her name sorry!) as a rodeo clown, pic 3 Alex as a Jedi (loved it! He looked really good!), pic 4 I don't know all their names, army man Matrix man (Brandon) and vampire (Greg), pic 5 me as a bowling ball, Irene as a vampire, Shelly soccer player, Alena pirate, [can't remember her name either, I'm bad!] as a renaissance vampire I think, Jessica as Maleficent, and Norma as a pirate. Love dressing up! Fun stuff!

What should I pack - HELP!

So I was just reading my cousin Sami's blog and she was talking about packing a bag for the hospital. I realized that I need to do that too!! But since this is my first time with this stuff, I don't know anything, what all do I need? They don't keep you in the hospital very long anymore, do they? So I don't need to pack a whole lot of stuff, right? You see where I'm going with this?! Please comment with your best advice, I'd love to hear it! Thanks in advance!

Did I see that right??

I was just looking at everyone's blogs and realized my baby counter says "30 days!" Holy cow! It's really getting close! I'm excited. So the latest on my pregnancy is, I've been a little crampy lately and baby's feeties are in my ribs! It's fun though. I'm getting anxious to have her out of there so I can hold her, dress her up, give her luvs, etc. I think we're about ready, there's just a few more things that we need, but we're just waiting for her big debut. I bet my niece, Courtney, is dying to have her out of there too, she's been waiting so long for a girl cousin.
Just waiting for you, my sweetie!

New colors!

I finally updated my blog colors for Fall and Halloween, I love it! I found the picture at the top from Google. (Google rocks!)
So, we're into October now and although I don't like the coming cold, I love the upcoming Halloween! It's always been one of my favorite holidays. And when it comes to dressing up, I deck out! I don't like to just put a sheet over my head and call it good, when I put on a costume, I put on EVERY detail. Here's a story I have to share, I love it! (And now I'll have to go find the picture that goes with it, dang it!) (But I'll try and find it and post it so you can see.)
When I worked at Maceys in Provo, they always had a Halloween costume contest. This one guy, Trevor, won it like every year because he had excellent costumes. This one year, I was like, "Dang it, I'm gonna win this year!" And the first prize was $50. So I went home and got on the internet and started looking at costumes. I had to have something GOOD! I found a costume somewhere for Sleeping Beauty's 'Maleficent', it had the flowing robe with fire zig zags down it, and it came with a headpiece with her horns. I started getting ideas about what else I could add...but then I saw the price. $50 bucks?! That really got me started thinking what I could add, because if I could win, I'd pay for the costume. So, I went out on a limb and bought the costume. In the meantime, waiting for it to ship, I devoted my time to studying Maleficent. I put on the video and watched her, I put it on pause and looked at her details. She had dark purple eyeliner from the lids up to the eyebrows, she had painted nails, red red lips, and I even noticed a jeweled ring on her finger. (All the while taking notes!) And of course, she had the long pole with her bird. After extensive study, I set out to start collecting things. I went to good old Walmart and bought a wooden curtain rod with a ball at one end. I bought a big fake bird at Michael's Crafts that had wires coming out of its feet. My brother Dave, bless his soul, drilled the holes in the top of the pole and stuck the bird to the top of my "staff." (And there it stays to this day.) I also bought a jewel at Walmart that looked exactly like the ring she wore. I bought the perfect shade of green (mint color) for my face and skin, red red lipstick, purple eye-liner, etc. I was ready! The costume came and I tried it on. Much to my dismay, one of the horns (which were made out of stupid foam) hung down so I looked like Maleficent the bunny rabbit with a floppy ear. So my mother, bless HER soul, sewed some black sticks to the back and they stood up perfectly.
I was ready for the day! I got up early on the contest day and put on my green skin, red lips, ring, eyeliner, costume, etc. grabbed my staff and bird and headed off to work. The looks on people's faces when I went walking into Maceys, it was funny! People were like, "Holy cow! I think a villain just walked in here." They took a picture for the contest wall and I did my thing behind the cash register. My staff was just standing behind me. In walks Trevor in FULL Knights costume, complete with the chain vest and everything, and I thought, "Wow, that's awesome." A little girl came through my line with her parents and she whispered something to her mom (I think she was dressed like a princess), and her mom said, "She wants a picture with you." hehehe. It was so cute! So I went and got a picture with her. Okay, the story is a little long, I apologize. After all was said and done, me and Trevor were in a tie at the end of the day. And I believe it took like another day or two to decide on the outcome, but I ended up winning first and he got second, I believe. So I paid for the costume and I still wear it loud and proud to this day! I absolutely LOVE that costume!! It's treasured! I'll try to find the picture and post it. Halloween rocks, I love it!

Two Months Left!

Wow, I only have two months left and I'm getting a little nervous. I keep thinking, "I know you're still growing and getting bigger, and I know that you'll have to come out of there eventually." Scary! I am, however, looking forward to having the baby out to cuddle and kiss and hug...that'll be the fun part. I'm not so sure of the "birthing" part. But I know the Lord will be with me and help me through it.
There's a lot of movement in there lately. She likes to turn her whole self around and I'll be at work when she does it, so I put my hand on my tummy and think, "What are you doing in there?!" Silly baby. But all is going well. We've got some more stuff for the baby - I found a nice changing table at DI, as well as some cute clothes. And when onesies that look brand new are only a buck, you can't pass that up! So we're getting ready, slowly but surely. And look at this cute find!! (DI, of course.) (Also a buck!)

They were so tiny and clean and new-looking, aren't they darling? I had to have them. Okay, now I have to post another picture, these were too cute as well! (And my sister says 'don't get carried away...)
Baby's first rugged boots! Love 'em! She'll have to grow into those, they were a bit bigger, but who could pass those up?! Fun, fun stuff!! Why are kids clothes so dang cute?

A Tribute to my Grandfather

Robert C. Fisher

My dear grandpa Fisher passed away peacefully on Sunday, September 7th and I just wanted to say a few words. He was such a great man and I'll miss him so much. He was funny and I loved hearing stories about his army days and the funny things that he did. I liked to tease him and kiss his cheek whenever he came over to see us, and he would always say to my grandma, "Who's this woman kissing me?" I'll sure miss that. It was fun to give him hugs and kisses. The ceremony was beautiful, complete with army honors. I know he's happier and he won't have to hurt anymore. He's in a better place. I love you Grandpa!
I still have my two grandmas and I want them to know that I love them as well! Families are such a wonderful thing and I'm grateful to have an awesome family in my life. I'm glad that families can be together forever.

I haven't posted an update for a while, I've been a little busy and I just wanted to post a quick update. I should be in bed, I'm tired!! I've started working at Deseret Industries in AF, back in the clothing processing. I either inspect the clothes that get donated (i.e. holes? stains? out of style? lol) or I hang up the ones that pass the inspection test. I really enjoy working there, I work with good people, it's a great place and I feel like it's a big service project. We have a devotional every morning, which really gets the day off to a good start, I love it.
So tomorrow, I have to go to another prenatal appt. and this time, they're having me take a glucose test! Hence, the subject line - yummy...sugar! I have to drink this sugary drink within a 1o minute time period and then be at the doctors 45 minutes later so they can test my blood. Everyone I've talked to about this portion of my pregnancy exams say, "it's really sweet!! Like pure sugar!" and one girl at work said, "It makes you kind of....loopy, be careful driving to the doctors!" hehehe. Fun huh!
I can't believe it's getting so close now to having my own little baby girl around, I'm so excited! It's funny, when I am sitting in church and I have my arm resting across my belly, she'll start kicking and kicking at it. Last week, I watched my arm move up and down, I almost laughed out loud, it was so dang cute!! She's probably in there going, "Would you move?! I need some space!" I have news for her - it's going to get a lot more cramped in there before long. She does a lot of moving and it's sure fun! I love it! I feel like I'm getting a little anxious for her to come out though. But soon enough. Anyway...I think that's all for now. I'm 27 weeks today! Goodnight everyone! Love ya all! Stacey

This is for you, Nastia Liukin!

Chinese gymnasts win another gold
BEIJING - "China's He Kexin won a tiebreaker over all-around champion Nastia Liukin of the United States for the uneven bars gold medal Monday at the Beijing Olympics."

Did you watch the olympics on Monday night? They were having the women's gymnastics on the uneven bars, and I've loved to watch Nastia perform, she's good! But there was a tie breaker between her and a little Chinese girl, He Kexin, I thought they were both good, but everyone thought that Nastia's routine was just a bit more smooth. I don't know, I'm not a judge, but poor Nastia ended up getting a silver medal over that tiebreaker and I felt so bad for her, you could see the disappointment in her face the rest of the night. In my opinion, they both should have gotten the gold for having a tied score. In the past, they've given double medals for ties, but the rules have changed.

So, here's a gold medal for you, Nastia! I still think you're great!

I love to see the temple!

I was able to go to the Jordan River Temple with my cousin, Mercedes, who went for the first time, and I just have to say I love it! I felt all "warm and tingly", it's so peaceful and beautiful in the temple, I could spend forever in there just clinging to the spirit! I'm so grateful for the gospel in my life, I don't know where I would be without it. I'm grateful for 'Eternal Families' and every blessing the gospel brings. I just wanted to share that. I took this picture of the temple with my cellphone camera and I must say...not too bad!! It's so pretty, and the sky was a perfect bunch of clouds and colors to capture the image!

Summer's almost over...

Isn't that sad?!
Well, I think so anyway! I love Summer and it's coming to an end! But I suppose with the end of one season, another one comes along, and who knows what surprises are in store. I'm just one of those people that don't like things to change. (Much.) I know, change is necessary. I always get a little sad when Summer is over. Summer is my favorite time of year, I love it, even though it's hot and miserable some days. I could live with Summer weather all year long. Where my husband is from (Trujillo Peru) he says it is 70's and 80's all year 'round. Now THAT'S what I'm talking about! I told him we need to move there. His family lives by the BEACH!! I'm not sure how close, but living anywhere close to a beach, mm-hmm! I love beaches!
I hope everyone has had a good Summer! It hasn't been too bad. And even though it's about over, I am looking forward to having my baby girl in November, it's getting closer! She moves mostly at night, the silly thing. The other night, I felt more than just one move, it was like a series of moves all at once, like waves or bumps, and I thought, "What are you doing in there?!" hehe. Silly baby. I can't wait to welcome her into our family and see what she'll look like! Have a great day everyone!
Oh, one more thing - I was looking for my crying faces at the top of this post and I came across this FUNNY website, I had to share it, I laughed. Read the description of the item, it's funny. Enjoy!

A Different World, Charles in Charge, Cosby Show, Too Close For Comfort, Diff'rent Strokes, Silver Spoons, Facts of Life, Little House On The Prairie, Bewitched, Family Ties, Punky Brewster, Gimme A Break - anyone remember that one? The Hogan Family, Incredible Hulk, Growing Pains, Fraggle Rock, Who's The Boss, Mr. Belvedere, Moonlighting, Perfect Strangers, Step-by-Step, Small Wonder, Three's Company, Knight Rider (go David Hasselhoff!) Webster, my absolute favorites were 21 Jumpstreet (Who didn't love that one?!) and CHiPs (and of course every time the theme for this came on, my family would GROAN!)

My mom used to like "Alice" and "Mission: Impossible" with the old[er] guy she thought was handsome, (what was his name?)

There were so many others!! I just loved 80's TV! And what about all the old 80's cartoons?! That, my friends, is a whole 'nother story!

It's been a few days since I updated what's going on around here, so I thought I'd post some updates! I've started feeling the baby move, it's fun! Little flutters in my tummy, it's so cute! The first little pop I felt in there, I was like, "Was that the baby??" I believe it was! And she's a little more active now, it's cool! My brother's birthday was yesterday and I wanted to wish him a HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Another year younger! Birthdays are fun!

We went up to my cousin Mercedes' bridal shower yesterday, she's such a cute girl!! I just want to wish them congratulations! I am happy for them, it's an exciting time in their lives!

Finally, my dear friend Lacee got married, and I wanted to wish them congratulations as well! I'm so happy for both of them, I hope that they have a wonderful life together! She's a beautiful bride! And of course, he's a handsome groom! Congrats Lacee & Travis! I love that bridal picture of you in the field, Lace! Gorgeous!

I guess that's it for now!! Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Some of these other celebrities I don't know, but the kids' names are still quite interesting!
Rob Morrow - Tu (That's right, Tu Morrow!) (doesn't that make you wanna sing, "tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya! Tomorrow!" Okay, on with the list!)
Helena Bonham Carter (main girl's voice in Corpse Bride) - Mingus
Keith Richards - Dandelion
Erykah Badu - Puma, Seven They get stranger - keep reading!! :)
Forest Whitaker - Sonnet, Ocean
Patrick & Rachel Griffiths - Banjo (Strum, strum...)
Robert Rodriguez - Rogue, Rocket, Rebel, Racer
Lil' Mo (R&B artist) - God'iss Love Stone, Heaven
The following are my favorites and the most unusual, in my opinion!
Frank & Gail Zappa - Moon Unit, Diva Muffin, and . . . Dweezil?!
Chef Jamie Oliver - Dixie Dot, Poppy Honey, Daisy Boo
Paula Yates & Michael Hutchence - Tiger Lily Heavenly Hirani
Paula Yates & Bob Geldoff - Fifi Trixibelle, Pixie, and (all one name!) Peaches Honeyblossom Michelle Charlotte Angel Vanessa (Kinda makes me think of the following conversation: "honey, the baby's been born, what should we name her? Michelle?" "No" "Charlotte?" "No" "Angel?" "No" "Vanessa??" "No," "How about...ALL of those?" "Yes, that's perfect, and add a few more too!!!")
And the top 3 weirdest celebrity kids names are:
Jason Lee & Beth Riesgraf - Pilot Inspektor
Penn Gillette - Moxie Crimefighter
Shannon Sossaman & Dallas Clayton - Audio Science
Juan and I have therefore decided to change our baby's name from Sierra Nicholle Silva to something like Saturday Tuesday Silva, or Toyota Nike Ipod Silva, whaddya think?! Vote on those two! ~hahahahahahaha~ :)

Happy Birthday to my sweetie!

My sweet husband's birthday was on Thursday, July 10th and we had a really fun party on Saturday, the 12th. We had family and some of his friends get together, and of course, one friend had to smear him with cake - eww! We also announced what we're having, it was hard to hold it in from family for two days. I hope everyone had fun. I love getting together with family, we need to do it more often! Just wanted to wish you a happy, happy birthday, Juan, I love you!! So does baby Sierra!
