|Asa - LOVE this one! It looks like he just ate something he doesn't like... |
although since he smiled right after, maybe he was just entertaining us!
|Asa - Awww....cute baby :o)|
After my ultrasound, I had my visit. The appt went pretty well, minus yet another doctor with horrible bed side manner - but hey, I'm getting used to that. He practically tried to schedule me for a repeat c-section for 39 weeks because I asked a question concerning a VBAC. (when doctors say 'do you have any questions, they don't actually want you to ASK any!) He said if I'm 'concerned' about the baby then I should just schedule a section. Um...what mother isn't worried about her baby?? How about just answering my question? (which by the way was "if I get nervous that something is going wrong while laboring, can I change my mind and have a c-section?") Is that a dumb question or something? I mean, they did just make me sign a paper saying they aren't responsible if my baby DIES, so don't I have a right, if I'm responsible, to decide at any moment a c-section would be needed? Do you seriously do this for a living and get paid for it, Buddy? OK, that might give you an idea of how much I enjoyed the whole 4 mins. he was in the room with me... loved it. But the rest of the visit was great. Nurses should get paid the big bucks. They tend to be a lot nicer, not so prideful and actually do most of the work. I'm not sure how that guy makes it through the day with his head that far up his rear end. I would think that would be dangerous. Sorry, this might be hormones talking.....maybe I should eat some caramel (which thanks to my friends, I have a steady supply of!) :o)
Sooooo anyway.... My fluid was a little high today (?) Probably explains my new back trouble. They weren't concerned since it's just over 'high' but I can't help but worry after that being such a big problem for my girl. The nurse started going over the ultrasound with me. She went through the report and said "so, the baby scored 8 out of 8". I got a lump in my throat and my eyes filled with tears. You can read why In this post from last November - actually, I just read through a bunch of stuff from last November, and I honestly don't know how I did it. Thanks to God I didn't fall apart.... I cried reading all of it. I miss her so much and wish she was here every single second of the day. every day.
Cyndie went with me today and brought me to Longhorn's afterward. That was where Matt & I ate on the day we got Rachel's 2nd opinion. Seems like so long ago. I got home and Matt had gotten out of work early so I was able to nap for an hour. I felt very blessed today and am so looking forward to adding another little Aube to our nest. Please continue to pray for a safe delivery for me and him.
