Doctor. . .

Today was the doctor visit. 35 1/2 weeks basically, so from here on out that where I'll be at 4:20pm on Tuesdays. Nothing exciting. Really. I was hoping for a much more exciting visit. . .but no. There was not long wait, which was nice but I was so thirsty throughout the whole thing. The nice little scale went up 3 pounds so I'm at a total of 28 pounds. My blood pressure was up a little from normal, its usually low and I was informed that I was at a 1cm. Yep. A stinken one. . .I'll be working on that. . .I let the doctor know. I'm not sure how yet but I'm going to some progress for next week. I asked if this baby will "drop" and she said since its the third probably not until right when real labor starts. Bummer. I feel like I'm breathing like an elephant. Basically I can't breath. I can't imagine being obese and feeling like this all the time. Its awful. I dread making calls at work because I feel like I sound like I just ran a marathon. So thats my complaint for the day. . .oh and one more. . .I can't stop drinking. . .water that is. I am so thirsty. Last night, throughout the night I drank almost 36 oz. Try to drink that much, plus sleep, plus go to the bathroom throughout the night. . .I'm not talking about a 12 hour night either. More like 8-9 hours. Just so you know it doesn't work that well. Even if I drink more during the day, I'm still thirsty at night. Like I said before; 35 1/2 weeks down. . .4 1/2 more to do.

Sorry to hear that things did not go as well as you wanted at the doctors. But lets face it when the time is right you will be amazing for sure!! I have never seen anyone have babies like you. With Grace I remember you sitting on that ball eating ice cream and playing cards. Obie hey who stops at McDonalds on the way to the hospital? YOU!! I know you are feeing really bla right now, but it want be long till you be seeing your new little blessing. Maybe you should suck on some hard candy or something to help with that thirst problem. See you soon.

I love the obese comparison. I keep thinking the same exact thing! I couldn't handle be obese because I hate feeling like this, lol. Mike pipes in with that reminder every time I start waddling around Walmart.
