had an appt today. my blood pressure was HIGH but i knew it would be because my husband and i were arguing on the way there and i was stressing because we were running late. so the nurse let me lay down for a little and rechecked my BP and it was back down to normal. my fundal height is measuring spot on and my urine looked good. hb sounded great too.
no cervical check.
i even lost a pound! probably from playing just dance 2 every day with Sarah.
we went over my birth plan and she is cool with everything. he even said he doesn't prefer for women to push lying flat on their back because it's not an effective position to push in, and it cuts off a lot blood flow to certain blood vessels. he is pretty much ok with anything i want to do... i seriously love my doctor! i also asked him what the odds are that he would not be delivering me and he said he is 99% sure he will be delivering me, no matter what time of day. he said he doesn't like to care for patients for a full 9 months just to miss the big show.
so, a pretty good appt overall!

That sounds like a wonderful 38 wk appt!

Gotta say though my doctor said the same thing to me, about being there, as it was one of my biggest fears. And with Collin he was going on vacation the Saturday after I had Collin (reason we scheduled an induction on the 18th, still grateful for him coming on his 17th due date lol) And with Bailey he ended up having to leave the state from the 1st through the 11th of the month, and though I was due on the 3th both he and I did NOT want to schedule an induction before he left because both he and I just knew I'd do better on my own. Needless to say he didn't deliver.

sorry, while I LOVED the doc that did deliver, and he was much more friendly, funny, and "hands off" making Tom more "hands on", I still missed my OB, and hate that Bailey was delivered by someone different than the boys......


lol, sorry I'll shut up now

Great appointment and I love your doctor too!

It makes such a huge difference to have a doctor you really like and trust. Mine was so dedicated to being at my birth, that, while on his vacation, he left his wife's hospital room (she'd had a slightly premature baby w/some minor complications 4 days earlier), long enough to deliver Aidan.

That's great!
My doc also told me he was very likely going to be available to deliver Isaac and then was not. Luckily I got the other really NCB friendly doc in the practice and so everything still went as planned.

i feel great, thanks. i have a hard time putting my shoes on, but other than that i don't feel 38 weeks pregnant! i have a feeling i will make it to my due date...i don't really have any signs of approaching labor. i do have some random ctx here and there, but nothing too painful, and they are most definitely not time-able. i know it could still happen at any point though. maybe i ought to think about packing a bag.
