Monday- OB appointment.
JD: So any guesses on weight?
OB: Mom’s are usually the closest ones. They can usually tell if the baby is bigger than the last one.
JD: Oh this one is bigger.
OB:(looking down at my chart) Bigger than 9lbs. 9oz. ??
JD: yeah, I think so, but I do have that annoying habit of over exaggerating. Should I schedule the C-section now??
OB: No, I think you should be fine.
*on with the pelvic exam.
OB: You are a one to a two. Let’s just see if we can’t stir things up a bit. (strip membranes)
JD: (in a fit of shock and pain forgets to breathe, sits up and starts seeing stars.)
OB: Well we will see you next week, if not sooner.
Since then I have been contracting every ten minutes, then twenty, then ten again. For the past three days. Today they changed into the contractions that you say….. Oh yeah I remember now. Only now they are still 20 or so minutes apart.
If I deliver 10 days early I am excited! If not no sweat. We tried. So it has given me a huge kick in the butt to get stuff done around here.
I am excited to see this little guy’s face.
