dear ole doc

just wanted to update you on the DREADED yet MUCH ANTICIPATED doctors appointment.

it went well.

there are three doctors in the clinic i visit so today i got to meet with another - he is a sweet man who said i have great ankles! (the highest compliment for pregnant women as 'great ankles' means no swelling!). He is also the on call doctor the weekend of july 4 when the other two docs will be out of town, so, IF i am on time(ish), he will be my delivery doc. (not that i am going to need him to do much but catch that baby and hand him over all bloody and fluid covered! HA!)

my blood pressure remains the same, heartbeat was about the same, head is DOWN down down and not likely to change, um, what else do you want to know? i gained six pounds since last month (eek! the scale continues to climb into uncharted territory!) these appointments are pretty boring (thankfully!) and will now increase in frequency. HE DID SAY he was a little worried about my ribs - they are already pushing out and he seems to think this could get pretty painful for me since i have no more room at the inn. who knew each rib in your rib cage has nerve endings? so far it has not been painful and maybe baby will "drop" early and i won't have too much pain (they can't do anything for it, but suggest resting. HA!).

anyway that is all i have to report. do all you mamas out there laugh at my silly posts? am i obsessing too much? it is somewhat difficult to think about much else!

32 weeks, 4 days

My own pregnancy and birth are far too fresh in my mind for me to laugh, but I am enjoying living vicariously through you! Like I said Saturday (I think...), I'd love to do the pregnancy, delivery and nursing again... the rest? Not so much. LOL! :)
