Today has been a really long and crazy day...let's start by saying no 10-9-8 baby for me...its 1025pm EST and it just isn't happening. I'm okay with that though...really. I went into the doctors office this morning and my BP was fine (that's what sent me to L&D the other day) and everything looked good. I told the NP a few concerns I was having - 1/ I still felt sick and 2/ I hadn't felt the baby move much at all even though I did do a kick count. She said that everything looked good and that I'm probably dealing with some sort of stomach virus which is making me feel gross and Amelia feel gross. Meaning that she doesn't want to do much moving either. Where she came up with this great idea - I have no freakin' clue! She checked me and I was the same as I was on Tuesday. Ok Ok. We head home and I'm satisfied but not totally. I honestly think that the first problem was the nurse on Wednesday just made me an appointment to come in and see someone Thursday instead of calling the doctor at home which is what the doctor asked for...then on Thursday I was going to be bumped to the doctors schedule except she was still at L&D. I'm thinking no one really kept her in the loop here. ? Just a thought. So I'm at home and I'm miserable. I eat lunch and then do another kick count - not many movements. I take a nap with Abby and wake up and I still feel concerned so I call the OB office again. At this point I feel like I'm harrassing them. The nurse tells me she either wants me to go to L&D or to come in...ok...I'm just gonna go into the office because its easier. I get to the office and they hook me up - thankfully Amelia's looking good on the machine...you know what else is looking good? The contractions I'm having - every THREE TO FOUR MINUTES- yeah. So a phone call gets placed to the doc on call (my doc!) and then the doc for the weekend is notified. So I say to the nurse "and who is on call Monday" and I get the chuckle you won't make it til Monday...ha ha ha! Well...its now 10:30 --- and I have to say that the contractions have continued...but aren't painful. The hot shower felt great (and yes this time the fans were on and the door to the hallway was closed!). But I can't see a reason to call the oB...and I'm hoping that I make it to next Thursday because that's when my doctor is on call again LOL. Here are some fun pictures from gym class...(waiting to go in - she looks goofy!) Climbing out of the pit!
At circle time doing exercises... Practice skill w/ Daddy Abby pulling one of the teachers around on a sled... Climbing to the tippity top! Falling off the bar....
Swingin' Blurry swingin' 38 weeks...stay in 1 more - until our favorite doctor can deliver you... I don't think I look nearly as huge this go round...and my stomach is no longer round :-/
