I'm totally convinced this baby will be in my belly FOREVER! He is never coming out! I went to the doctor today and unfortunately, they can't get me in any sooner than April 4th. So...who is miserable?! THIS GIRL! I know, I know...."it's only 9 days away". Unfortunately, for me, that is an eternity! The doctor told me today that he is going to be a "good sized baby". I'm not sure what that means.
I pretty much get about 4-5 REAL hours of sleep each night, which I know I should be grateful for now because I will be getting 0-3 hours of sleep each night in the coming weeks. At least I'll have a good reason to get no sleep, then! I wake up all throughout the night with leg cramps, bathroom breaks, Antacid pills, water, nasal congestion...ugh...the list goes on and on! Then, I get to go to work every day and hear over and over "You're still here??" and "Are you sure you're not having twins??" and "Wow-you've dropped!" It's such GOOD TIMES!!!! (sarcastic)
I brought a list of "requests" up to my doctor today about how I want things to go with the C-Section. Since I've been through this before, I know what I want this time 'round. Thank God she is surrendering to all of my requests which include having an iPod on and BLASTING during the C-Section so I dont hear them cutting me open, don't tie down my arms, use stitches-not staples and a lot of other things. I'm so thankful to have such an understanding doctor! Anyone in the Richmond area looking for an awesome OBGYN, Dr. Leigh Lewis at St. Mary's is fabulous! I suppose I will let you know exactly how fabulous she is after the C-Section :)
Well, anyhow, April 4th it is and it just can't get here fast enough!
