Getting Ready

Baby update!

I had an ob appointment this morning and got the poke check. ;) Looks like little Port is on the move. He is already at a -1 station. Unfortunately, my body did not get the memo and there is no dilation at all. The doctor had to actually push the baby back up just to reach my cervix. (ok, I'm no doctor, but that one confused me a bit) My cervix is apparently still tilted back some and "needs to rotate". ummmm......ok.

[Here is a diagram of the stations, for those of you who don't know, they generally measure from -4 to +4 with -4 being the highest point, or rather, when the baby is floating above the pelvis. When a baby is at 0 station, they are considered to be engaged in the pelvis. So, little man is almost half way to crowning, and almost to the engagement point. Aww, that sounds so romantic! lol!]

So, I don't really know what that means. I could be walking into L&D tomorrow or it could be a few more weeks. I do have the ok to travel this weekend to my Blessingway, but he did give me the names and numbers of a couple of his "friend" docs in the area I will be staying - just in case. Mercy. He said that there is no way of predicting when I'll go into actual labor (well duh) and that he doesn't do predictions because years ago he told a patient she had several weeks to go and she delivered her child that night! I didn't ask, he just volunteered that info. I guess at this point most women ask or something.

So I guess all that downward pressure I've been experiencing has been doing something. And, it would explain why my tailbone is killing me.

Otherwise, all is good here. I feel really good, but I haven't been sleeping much so I am completely unmotivated to do anything. I have no energy at all. I don't even care to surf on the computer much. I sit in my chair (cuz it is the most comfortable seat I have) and just stare into space. I am pretty worthless!

There is still so much to do. I read my friend's blog (she is due about a week before me) and she is so active and on top of things! I am sitting here trying to rub two brain cells together.... no sparks yet.

ugh. I'm tired. And I have work to do. I'll have to post more later I guess.

D :)

Oh yes, a cute Kiddo thing. When we walked into the doctor's office, he turns to the crowd in the waiting area, waves and loudly says, "Hi folks, we are here to see the doctor!"

Who is this child?? ;)

That diagram is awesome. I have never been able to figure out the stations, and this might be the first time that I "get" it. I feel like that today, staring into space and feeling totally useless. Add pissy to my list too. I sure hope for both of our sakes that we have our babies and get our energy back in one fell swoop. :)

I'm more like you at the end of pregnancy - staring into space, getting nothing done, not sleeping well ... I think it's all prep work for how *totally* useless I am the first few weeks with a newbie :)
