Yesterday I had my 39 week check up. Actually it was a day short of 39 weeks. Apparently that was very important to my doctor. She did the routine check up and I am dialeted to a 3. (Here is where it gets a little graphic.) Well a couple of weeks ago I asked her if she would strip my membranes. She told me that I had to wait till 39 weeks before she would do that. So anyway I reminded her to do it. She laughs at me and says, "Not till 39 weeks." Are you kidding me!!! So I responded with, "Well isn't that tomorrow!" She laughed again and proceeded to tell me how new studies have shown that stripping my membranes doesn't actually send me into labor that all it can possibly do is break my water. So my thought was well then do it if it doesn't matter. Anyway, I am not happy about it in the least bit. And of course she responded with, "Well he will come, I will be shocked if I see you here next week." I wanted to tell her that she said the exact same thing about my 39 week appointment.
Anyway, I never knew that 7 days would feel like an eternity away. Even then my doc didn't sound like she would induce me. I am going to try and see a different doctor that I have seen a couple of other times during this pregnancy. She seems to be a little more willing to listen to me. So, pray that my water breaks or I go into labor TODAY please!
I am so tired of being hot and sweaty. We were at Brooklyn's soccer practice yesterday and we were sitting in the shade. I was dripping in sweat and I look at Benson who was bone dry. Not a drop of sweat on him. I am so tired of being so hot. Why did I ever think being 9 months
pregnant in August without air conditioning was a good idea!
If you think I am being a complainer well, you are right. I am complaining! I have never been pregnant this long and I am pooped! I woke Benson up to cry to him this morning and as soon as he realized I wasn't in pain he pretty much hugged me, released some pressure and went back to sleep. So I didn't get any sympathy from him. (He is gonna kill me when he reads this!)
