    Default 39+1 appt today....

    sucked! So frustrated right now. Have I mentioned that I really don't like this DR i'm having to see because the other one we really like is on vacation?
    Anyways, this is how it went. Brought me back and weighed me...gained a lb..whatever.
    Took me in the room did blood pressure, a little high at 132/82 but it is what it is and no big deal. Gave me the paper thing to change from the waist down. Entire time nurse and I are getting along great and laughing.
    DR walks in, how are you...still pregnant...yup you are.
    Has me lay back does the measurement and heart beat tells me nothing but the word...good. Yup thats it, just good.
    Then gets his gloves on and lube to do the cervix check...drumroll please......NOTHING! He said, if my cervix had started softening or even started dilating he could of induced me as early as tonight, but because I have no progress he can't yet because my chance of a c-section go through the roof but they won't let me go more than a week past my due date...I appreciate it, I really do.
    Takes his gloves off and goes....come back Monday and walks out of the room! SERIOUSLY! WTH? Why the heck do I need to come back Monday if my due date is Wednesday and you won't induce me yet anyways. Why not wait until Wednesday or Thursday as would be my weekly appt and go from there?
    I mean I get that they are holding off on making any decision on the chance my body does start dilating, but what the heck is going to happen if we get to 41 weeks and still no progress? Obviously c-section so why not just get it scheduled now after next Wednesdays EDD and be done with this!
    Ugh!!! Anyways. thats it for now. Unless I magically go into labor on my own which i'm sure won't happen.

    OH that sucks. Yeah I hate when doctors/midwives seem like they aren't really paying attention to you. Both last week and this week my midwife prefaced the appointment with "I have a lady in labor, so if I get paged I have to run." Basically saying "we don't have much time for you right now."

    I'm sorry you aren't progressing, but it really doesn't mean a thing. My friend hadn't dilated or effaced at all at her 40 week appointment and then at 40 weeks 4 days she suddenly went into labor. He still should have gone over the "what ifs" with you, so you can at least plan a little.

    Are you trying anything to kickstart labor? Sex, evening primrose oil? I would probably start trying things right about now. I will keep my fingers crossed that you go into labor on your own within the next couple of weeks!

    Dr's can be such tools!!!!! Sometimes bedside manner can go a pretty long way.. You're SOO close, lady! Hang in there.

    I thought I had heard the dr we really like was only going for the week and was going to be back this week. I know his days in this office are definitely Thursdays because thats when we had been seeing him, but i'm not sure which other days. This chatty kathy dr that I have a love hate relationship with will be the one I see again on Monday, but I don't know what his other days are.
    I get that he doesn't want to put me through any unnecessary pain by inducing and it not working, and I truly do appreciate that, but to use Adrianas words, his bedside manner sucks and it'll be my luck he will be the one to deliver us. LOL
    He is a really great dr and have heard many good things about him, but I guess we just don't jive or something. He's just not Mr. Personality.
    Elizabeth, DH has been buying fresh pineapples and cutting them up for me. I have been trying to walk but after so much it just gets unbearable. We haven't done the sex thing yet, last time we tried it was just too much so I haven't asked DH for it. I know he's just waiting for me(he's being such a good sport and awesome about this) and has said on nights that I help him out, that when i'm ready he's there he's just afraid to hurt me if its that uncomfortable. But I think maybe tonight i'll tell him we need to try, what can it hurt? I go back Monday and still no progress? Hahaha!
