Every week…

We will see the doctor. It’s the once a week appointment time! For some reason I was looking forward to this earlier in the pregnancy. I have NO idea why.

I think I’d forgotton what the last month of visits were like with Harper.

I would put on real pants, show up for the appointment, and leave crying.

These were the standard phrases used in that last month:

  1. Your body hasn’t changed any.
  2. Oh you’re miserable, well that’s just a part of being pregnant.
  3. We’ll see you back next week.
  4. You probably won’t have anymore ultrasounds, you’ll just see what the baby looks like when she comes.
  5. You need to be pregnant until 40 weeks.
  6. Looks like you’re just a “contractor” and you’ll just have contractions up until your water breaks in a month.

Number 6 ticks me off the most. Like “oh you’re body is just stupid and you’re going to feel like garbage for another month”….GREAT.

This week I saw a new doctor, since mine was out of the office. He informed me that even though I was told the baby could come on the 29th, that my doctor would be out of town and would not schedule us for birth until she got back, ON APRIL FIRST.

After pouting for a little while, I thought “well that’s sort of neat, he will be an April baby like me and share my diamond birth stone!”. Then, I realized April 1st is freakin’ April fools day! UGH.

I’m not hating on people that have it for a birthday, but it’s just not what I had in mind. I REALLY want a St. Patricks day baby!!!!! REALLY BAD. Like the day before I’m going to do 100 jumping jacks, eat spicy food, and drink the cervix tea. The other two dates that would be cool are John’s birthday or his grandfather’s birthday, they’re all within a few days of St. Patricks too!

Clearly I just don’t want to wait another month, I want to wait 2 weeks. Apparently you can’t decide when babies will come, Harper taught me that.

I’ll probably be pregnant in June still. But let’s hope not.

  1. Haven’t gotten to that point yet, it scares me! I hope he’ll come a little early for you πŸ™‚ He might! Second babies sometimes come FAST! right? I have never heard of cervix tea!! Now I want to buy some to drink after week 37. And …… maybe go to acupuncture lol and be like “can you jump start labor for me with needles?”

    • It’s red raspberry leaf tea (doesn’t taste like raspberry) but its not bad with a load of sugar! I read to drink it after. 35 weeks bc it’s not supposed to send you into labor just supposed to make your cervix nice and soft so it’s easier during labor! I started drinking it with Harper and my cervix was always “short” at the end but I haven’t touched it and my cervix is always long. Could just be a coincidence, but one can hope. I’m gonna have to go get my tea bags down πŸ™‚

  2. Go for March 29th, that would make us due-date buddies!! πŸ™‚
    I’m also crossing fingers, toes and everything else I can think of, hoping to avoid April 1st – what a day to be born, will anyone ever take you seriously?

    • I know!!! At least if I schedule it, people will know in advance it’s not a joke…I think? But then all of his friends probably won’t believe it’s his birthday! I just don’t think april first is meant to be. I might do something crazy, like wait until April 2nd to schedule it. What’s one more day? Maybe I can treat myself that day before so I forget I’m waiting an extra day longer…like oh look I bought myself cake and pizza, now forget that I could be having a baby right now and be done with this whole being as big as a house thing! Maybe we will have our babies the same day, like a week early πŸ™‚

  3. Omg, I am right there with you! I am really hoping that the baby is just as anxious as I am and will want to find his way out within the next 3 weeks. I will definitely cross my fingers for you!

  4. Oh my dear I am sooo sympathetic! My last month and a half was just unbearable! Here’s something else you can try to kick that labor into gear: Apples to Apples! That card game got my mind off of being so uncomfortable, and I am sure all the laughing helped with the contractions! Good Luck

  5. Awh, my birthday is April 2nd.. they had scheduled my Mom’s c-section for April 1st and she told them she wasn’t having a baby on April Fools’ Day so they waited one more day haha!

  6. I can’t believe he is going to be coming so soon!!! The time has passed so fast. πŸ™‚ Try eating pineapple to get little man here sooner. I’m living vicariously through you so I can’t freaking wait for him to be here!!!

  7. OMG! I remember looking forward to the almost there weekly visits too. I thought I’d see the baby, but they didn’t do ultrasounds and I was super disappointed. Hope the baby comes on time! πŸ™‚
