Well did manage to get into the docs yesterday. Still just a 1 but have thinned out more. When the nurses saw me walk in they bumped me to the front of the line. They really thought he would check me and send me to L&D because of the way I was looking and whatnot but since I was still just a one he sent me home instead, after going over(again) and in very much detail exactly what I am looking for and when to leave for the hospital. They made me an appt for next week but one nurse flat out said (and the others and the doc all implied) that they were not real confident that I was going to make it to that next appt. The first time they took my BP it was way high for me so I ended up having to lay on the table for a little while and then they came and took it again and it was back down to a normal range for me, so a little concern there. Maybe holding my sweet LO before I know it(not to mention before I'm ready, yikes!)
In some ways I am ready. I have everything I need and everything is packed that sorta thing. I just don't feel ready for her to be here, but at the same time I can't wait to hold her. Been having a few more intense contractions today. I had to drive 'to town'(which with where I live that means a 25 mile drive) and on the way home I had one that was so intense I actually started to slow down and pull over until it was over. By the time I was able to get there it had stopped and thankfully had no more that were that bad until after I got home. So I'm thinking it might be soon, but then again I could continue this for another week or more I guess we will see.
