And still waiting...

I feel like I am starting to sound like a broken record. Nothing new this OB appointment. BP fine, and my other numbers look good. Nurse practitioner told me that nothing is happening with my cervix. It is still high. This child is in no hurry to go anywhere. It is very frustrating.

I have to think that the twinges, the pulling, and the back pain indicate that something is happening in there. He is also fairly active. That also has to indicate something. I want to feel like he is ready to come out, but there is no indication that he is actually doing anything productive. At the moment, it feels like I will be pregnant forever. I know that is not true, but that is the way it feels for me right now.

My next OB appointment is with a different doc. My OB is only working two days next week, and she is over booked both days, so I have to see someone else. And I have to see a doctor, not an NP. I am not all that happy about the one I have an appointment with, but she may end up with me in the labor room, so I probably ought to figure out how to deal with her. I hope that if I see her in the office, she will not be on call when I finally do go into labor. Here's hoping, anyway.

I never got to the pregnant-forever stage, but good friends have, and from what they describe, it's maddening. But labor can kick in full throttle at an instant (not in a bad way, either), so I have high hopes this will be your last post from the waiting room.

I hope you have a good birth and a wonderful time with your little one!

I saw my OB (same one) at every appointment. It seems to me like it would be so hard to really get to know someone and then get shuffled off to different doctors for appointments and not know who was going to deliver your baby.

I hope when your kiddo decides to make an entrance, your doc is available.

I felt like a broken record too...and started to feel like this kid was never going to come.

Do you have a yoga ball? I spent a lot of time on that the day I went into labor (like most of the day).
