getting ready

Man oh man the end of pregnancy is nothing if not uncomfortable !!!!!!!!!

I have to have these non-stress tests now everytime I go to Dr (because I am 100 years old). With last two kids I did this at Dr.s office but this time I have to have it done in labor & delivery. I showed I was having contractions every 5 minutes & it was a very slow day in labor & delivery. They were acting like they had never heard of anyone having contractions prior or that I live in rural area miles & miles from any help (I walk to the Dr because it is about 5 blocks away from my home in Chicago). Five different nurses & two residents talked to me about how I felt & if I felt the contrations. They called my Dr before they said I could leave. I hope they dont act like this everytime. I mean it is nicer than being treated like crap or ignored but still it felt like an overbearing mother.

crazy! I can see how that would be really annoying, maybe if it happens again they will suggest inducing you early? You are almost to the finish line!

When I did my 1st NST this pregnancy I was contracting every 2 minutes and they didn't care lol.
