Dear OB:

When I see you today at 9am, please tell me that I am dialated and will likely go into labor this weekend. The 'beach ball' look doesn't do anything for me. Oh yeah...and I'm more and more swollen everyday which means I have more and more numbness in my right hand/arm...that's REALLY getting old.

Thank you-

p.s. lie to me if you have to...I need my sanity
******************************************************* that's what I'm hoping happens today...

I also have my breastfeeding class tonight at 6:30pm. I was supossed to go back in December, but when I got the new job and had to go to OH, I had to postpone. Ha....and I thought I was worried I might not make it to the class being only 6 days from my due date.

I guess it's my own fault that Ethan is not here yet...I was 10 days late arriving and we can blame O a little too, I think he was 5 days late making his entrance to this world.

Thankfully, the doc will only let me go as late as the 12th, but I'm going to request being induced on the 8th if I go that long.

I hope he's ready to come out! When I rotated on the ob/gyn service as a med student, they were telling me that people who are white and never had a baby before have the highest incidence of being past their due date. But don't worry... you have two weeks after that until they really start to worry about the baby!

My sister-in-law was not dilated at all, and they were talking about having her induced. Then two days later the baby came. So regardless of what the doctor told you this morning, keep thinking positive thoughts!

Amy -that *IS* hilarious - thank you, I SO needed a good laugh today and your comment helped for sure!!

My personal favorite is: 22 minutes ago, Milo & Hula would be better birthing coaches then O!


krystyn said...

Oh yeah...and O's sister BETTER NOT call during my delivery - or he better @ least have his phone off...I hadn't even thought of that and sadly, I would NOT be surprised if she did call considering how she cannot live w/o him. Geesh!
