OB flyby……..

This week in Rose’s Daughter’s quest for deliverance……….

How far along? 37 weeks 5 days.

Total weight gain? 35 pounds.  Yes. 35!!!   

 

Maternity clothes? I only have a few left that fit.  As I’ve said before, I refuse to spend anymore money on them.
 

Stretch marks? NO!!! Cocoa Butter is my friend………………

Sleep: What ever.  Even though I did sleep pretty good last night.

Best moment this week : More gift cards from C-Dub’s job.  Don’t know what I’ll use them for, but I’m sure $100 in gift cards from Babies R Us will come in handy.  Ideas anyone?

Movement : Yes, yes.  He doesn’t seem to realize that he’s running out of room. 

Food cravings : I think I’ve indulged in them all.

Labor Signs: Contractions, contractions and more contractions.  But no baby.

Belly Button in or out? It’s kind of flat.  Weird.

What I miss: Not waddling

What I am looking forward to : The Birth of this baby.

Milestones: 37 weeks.( Term pregnancy)

So.  I went  to my Midwife today for my weekly fly by.  I got my prenatal records to take with me to the hospital “just in case”.  So they asked me if I wanted to be checked.   

Yes!

So, Peggy( the midwife) looks at my belly and proclaims, “that’s a good-sized baby in there.” 

REALLY?( Ummmmm yes, that was sarcasm)

But as always, I measure right on target at 38 cm.

As she is feeling around…..”Wow, feel that contraction!”

Heartbeat: Nice and strong… 140s.

And now……..

Ok.  Now, I’ve had vaginal exams before.  They have never really been uncomfortable enough to complain about.  I always shake my head at my patients when they scream out during an exam thinking, :what the hell?

But today……

I didn’t scream, but I thought screaming thoughts in my head.

But…..

I am 1 cm dilated! Soft(very soft she said.) and the head is at a minus 2 station.

So all and all, it means those contractions are doing something!!

AMEN

Now, I just need them to continue to do something and deliver me soon. 

 REALLY soon.
