So, I was fully prepared to go in to my appt today and hear something along the lines of "why yes, we will induce this weekend." Instead, I got a call saying that Dr. P had to do a surgery, and did I want to reschedule or see the other doctor. Since I'm headed to the Ft. Worth Stockyards tomorrow with the 4th grade, I elected to see the other doctor.

What a mistake.

She was incredibly rude. She didn't understand why Dr. P would have scheduled an ultrasound to measure the baby, since that would take a whole half an hour. We explained that she was concerned about fluid and size, and the other doc just blew it off. She did agree to check the fluid (it was fine), but that was it.

I am still not dialated at all, she didn't tell me if I was any more effaced. (She also didn't tell us the heartrate, which annoyed me.) I did manage to gain 2 centimeters of belly in a week. (That's up 4 1/2 in 2 weeks, when you're supposed to gain 1 a week.)

I really wish now that I had rescheduled and just done my best to be there. I really wanted to talk with Dr. P about how uncomfortable I am, how I can't even wipe myself on the toliet without doing crazy preggo contortionist acts, how tired and emotional I am...

Oh well. Tomorrow I'm 39 weeks, and I plan on doing a LOT of walking. Bring it on.
