I had a doctors appointment this morning.
My doctor who I LAST week thought was the BEST doctor EVER tells me that there is absolutely no signs of labor… no dilating…. no thinning… no blah blah blah… what a dummy. I asked him if I could see his diploma because I'm pretty sure he got his medical degree at www.overnightDR.com. Seriously though…. WHAT THE HE#*? How can there be no progression? How can a human body feel the things this human body is feeling and not be ready to give birth THIS VERY SECOND? On a positive note, we did get to have an ultrasound. Sweet baby No Name is approximately 7lb 5oz. Big enough to deliver today… but not too big to deliver with another week of grow time. Perfect. The fact that he is a boy was reconfirmed, and they said everything looks perfect… perfect little heart… perfect little organs… perfect little everything. We could see his little lips puckering up and he looked like a little baby instead of a cross between Skeletor from He-Man and ET. It made it seem a lot more real to me. For the first time this pregnancy I felt like I was actually going to have another baby. I think it made it a little more real for Otey too. Here's his cute little profile shot…
Feel free to email me your labor starting suggestions. I'm headed out to go jogging and lift some REALLY heavy stuff as we speak. Unless something happens on it's own, my next appointment is in a week… PLEASE LORD LET MY WATER BREAK BEFORE THEN.
