Today's Appointment

I had a doctor appointment today. It was good and bad. Baby is fine, so no stress!!!

Good news is that I am now 2 1/2cm dilated and 80% effaced and again she stressed how incredibly low baby is. This I know because I feel how low her head is in my lower regions and feel how uncomfortable it is. No surprise there. I have been contracting more and today especially they have been getting a little bit uncomfortable. I am thinking that it shouldn't be too much longer.

Here is my hope - I hope to have Sierra before Friday. I know it is a stretch, but I have good reason. See, my parents are leaving on a cruise first thing Friday morning and won't be back until he evening of the 28th. Truthfully, I couldn't at all imagine them not being here for her birth. And I truly don't think that I will hold out until the 28th or later. From the beginning I didn't ever think I would. So much to think about...

On to the bad news. My doctor walked in and had her arm all in a contraption. I then found out that she BROKE her shoulder and will not be delivering babies for another six weeks. You see my problem. Sierra will not be in my stomach for another six weeks. There is no way. That would put me at 42 thank you. So, I have to have another doctor upon delivery. This crushed me. Like to the point of having tears in my eyes. I absolutely love and adore my doctor. She is amazing. The thought of having another doctor is just not something I am having an easy time wrapping my head around...but I am trying.

So, things are progressing for sure which is exciting. Just that much closer to getting to hold my precious angel in my arms!!!!!

**Oh and I am real bummed that I didn't blog yesterday because I was doing so good about posting every day! :(

Bummer about the docs broken shoulder. I cannot believe how much you're dilated already! Come on baby S!

I so remember that feeling! My doctor with Rawni said at 30 weeks she was moving to another hospital on a different medical bill ugh.

Wow on the dilation! Hopefully she is healthy and ready and you get your wish!

Wow she'll be here anyday! Go walk! Walk! Walk!

That sucks about your doctor. My baby came so fast that a doctor that was already at the hospital delivering someone elses baby had to leave his C-section to deliver mine. And you know, he was fabulous! He can deliver this baby too. So as scary as it is to have a different doctor you don't know, hopefully he'll/she'll be really good.

How exciting! I can't wait to see pictures of her!

So exciting how things are moving right along for you. I swear that (as an innocent bystander) this pregnancy has flown by. Can't wait to see her little face.
