Dr Appt Update

Woohoo, I had my 35 week appointment today. :-) Or, rather the nurse said 34.5, LOL. I said, no it’s 35 tomorrow! Their system has it marked as 34.5 even though they know I’m 35 tomorrow.

After a HORENDOUS wait, apparently she delivered a little girl this morning and got thrown off, I finally saw her. She wanted to do an internal along with my culture test. I was like, well, I don’t really want to have this baby anytime soon, do we have to do the internal? Cause I’m not particularly curious!!

Plus, my Dr had a horrid habit of trying to strip my membranes each time last time. And since I’m a TOTAL baby with pain it really sucked. :)

Anyway, she reassured me that she would NOT be doing anything evil at all because I’m not full term. Nice to know she just kinda does it anyway for everyone when she goes down there. LOL – I’m gonna have to be very strict with her! Or actually, just see the nurse practitioner for the next few weeks since they are much easier to bully around. Heehee.

So, she cultured and she checked and said she felt the baby’s HEAD!! Whoo, head down!! And I was very high and closed, nothing going on down there. Which is good. Jeez, I’m only 35 weeks! (34.5 – heehe)

Luckily, she said that I should see the nurse next time (I think she thinks these types of appointments are boring and a little waste of her time – they are probably! :-) and it can be in two weeks instead of one. Whew. So I have another in the first week of March.

It was funny though, she asked whether or not I thought this baby was bigger or smaller than Sam. And I thought about it for a second and I said around the same or maybe a bit smaller, as I really don’t feel that big. I SEEM to remember feeling a lot more uncomfortable last time (although the uncomfortableness is still around – I think it was worse at this point last time?) and she said, yes I was going to say you seem smaller. She said it could be just the way I am carrying the baby though.

Sam was a pretty small baby though! Usually the 2nd is supposed to be bigger! But I’m not really bigger than last time, and I never really popped earlier than last time either. I thought that was funny.

Also, I have a huuuge feeling that she doesn’t even remember what I was last time. I dunno. Maybe she does but I just don’t think so. (Don’t get me wrong, I adore my Dr but I think she is way to busy to remember two years ago and what exact size I was.)

Oh, another small/big funny. I got my nails done on Monday when Grandma had Sam and the owner knows me and always says hi. I walked in and she said hi but a few minutes later I was sitting down and she walked up front. I had the little pillow they give you for your lap, even though I don’t really have a lap right now, it was covering my tummy.. and she said ‘Did you have the baby already?’!!! LOL! I was like, NOooooo! He’s due in 5 weeks though! He’s in there somewhere! hahaha! Compliment??

Now I’m feeling totally small! :) I guess that is a good thing.

And for all the ‘i’m gonna be freaking gentle’ crap today at the office, I’m having the worrrest braxton hicks and super sharp kicking pains. Oohhhh.. I guess it’s time to lie down. Or drink some water, now that I think about it I haven’t had some for awhile. Ouch.
