This morning we are going to another prenatal visit. Will they ever end? We have been there every week for the past 3 weeks. I was under the impression that you go every week when your in you last month. Our doctor says he wants to see us every week to 2 weeks. 2 weeks I can handle, but they keep giving us appts. for every 1 week. We do love being able to hear his little heart beat, and seeing how much he is growing. I cant believe my body, ME, is capable of keeping this little life alive. It’s weird how much you can love someone you have never met.
Oh and today, we are meeting a new doctor. If my doctor is not available or not on call when it’s time to deliver, then the doctor we are meeting today, she will deliver. I hope my doctor will be on call. I have never gone to a male doctor before him, and would never consider it. One painful night put me in the hospital where I met him. He is a great doctor and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
I could go on and on about how I cant wait to have this baby, but I am gonna try not too… I am so ready to have him. I am so uncomfortable. I am feeling pressure everywhere, including my ribs. I don’t think I can grow any bigger.
This weekend Dustin and I are going to take a child birth class. It will mostly be about how to relax your body and pain control.
I don’t want an epidural. I have seen 2 different girls labor with having taken it, and I decided it not for me. I would hate to not, be able, to feel my legs and not be able, to get up and walk around, to help progress labor. I cant imagine being so drug up, that I cant even enjoy my baby after he is born. And to me that is what the epidural looks like…. Plus they say that women who don’t take it are better pushers. And the baby is less alert if you have a epidural. I look at it as a drug, and if I take the epidural, then the baby will have this drug in his system. So I am passing on the epidural!!
