Week 33 appt

I had my appointment today. Carter is head down!!!!!!!!!!! Yahoo I'm 33w2d and he's measuring 34w. I guess he's going to be a healthy boy. Heart rate was good (145).

She went ahead and checked my cervix because of me working 12 hour shifts even though they normally don't start those checks until week 35. I was worried that it was going to HURT but it didn't feel any different than getting a pap. Good news! Cervix is firm and not at all dilated! Yahoo I was getting worried because of the amount of contractions I had been having. I'd really like for him to make it to at least 39 weeks. MD wants me to stop working the 12's and do my desk job only so I'm going to talk to my boss about it.

Next appt is 35w and GBS test. :eek: Then weekly appointments thereafter. Wow, he's really coming soon!

Sounds great Jen! Those cervical checks aren't pleasant, but not too awful... Might as well get used to them now, before everyone starts peeking in there. Wink
Weekly appointments? Oh my! Already?

So glad your cervix isn't freaking out about your 12 hour shifts!

I hope you are able to cut back and just do your desk job!

Congrats on a healthy babe and positive appointment. KUP about how the talk with the boss goes - fingers crossed for you!

Have you looked into declining traditional GBS treatment at all, just out of curiosity?

Congrats on a healthy appointment. With the cervix check I'm glad your doc is watching out for you, way to take one for the team hee hee. Hopefully your boss agrees to shorter shifts or desk job, KUP on that!

So my boss said no problem cutting the 12s out but she said I'd be losing those hours each week. I was like whatever but then I was thinking 'I NEED those hours..and light duty is fine as long as I'm not on my feet. They can't just take my hours away because I'm pregnant!' So I called my aunt who is one of the managers of Elvis Presley Enterprises and asked her (since she is very familiar with labor laws). So she said they still had to give me my FT hours and not just take those 12 away and that they HAD to accommodate me. Guess my boss and I will be having another chat this week. I need at least two more full pay checks and it makes me mad that she was just going to make me miss those 12 hours each week!

Oh! Well that is totally different - you need your money you deserve your money, you're totally right - surely she can't cut your pay back just because you're pregnant. Hopefully she just didn't think that quite through & will reschedule you this week.

this makes me grrr. I'm sorry. I'm sure she'll quickly change her tune, but I'm still sorry you have to have a second talk. How did the conversation go, by the way?
