Pregnant forever?
Today, just out of the blue, I decided I want to have the baby today. I mean, I want to have the baby everyday, but I got it in my head that if I didn't have him today, it would never happen. I honestly thought for a few minutes that if he didn't come out, he really would never, ever be born. I'm pretty darn sure that's not possible. I had to convince myself that he will be born, even if it's later than I want him to be, but that he will, in fact, come out of me whether I like it or not. It does feel like that somedays, though. Like this baby is just never going to come. I mean, if he cared, he'd come when I asked him to, but nooooooooo.....

He obviously knows I'm talking about him, b/c now little Cole is going all to town in my belly, and kinda thumping on my ovaries or something. Kinda hurts.

Speaking of, I have to go to the dr. tomorrow, where I'm sure they'll yell at me for my slackness in managing this stupid diabetes. Blah, blah, blah...It sucks, too, b/c I have to take the kids. Trey is usually off on Mondays, but his boss screwed up the schedule, and now he has to work. I am really, really dreading this visit. Of course, I could have tried to find someone to watch them, but it didn't even occur to me until about 11 tonight that I have the appt. tomorrow morning. What makes me even madder about it is that they won't tell me anything I want to hear. I want to hear that I'm 100% effaced and 5 cm dialated, but nooooooo....I'm sure even the mention of that will just bring a chuckle. I don't even want to go to the dr. I have tomorrow. I want Dr. Campbell, but they keep giving me Dr. Cook. I don't care for her. She's nice enough, but dammit, she's skinny as a rail! I don't like skinny people seeing me naked!

Well, I guess that's enough for now. I'll go rant some more in my sleep now. Oh, and on the good side, I have a babysitter for my cheerin' tomorrow night! I'm looking forward to someone coming and playing with them (she's a hyper high school student that I work w/at Pizza Hut), and hopefully finding someone who may be a good backup in case my mom can't watch them sometime (like when she goes on her vacation the week I'm due with the baby!). I hope you have a great day, and I'll see you soon!

    Sorry, but I'll say November 2. 9 lb 1 oz. It's probably too late now, but you can bring the kids over here for your test.

    So how did it go??

    Julia, have I ever mentioned just how purely evil you are?

    I'll have you know, though, I think you'll be wrong. Today she said I'm a centimeter dilated, and super squishy. She said surely something should happen w/in the next couple of weeks. She also said that if he doesn't come out on his own by week 39, they will induce me. She said she wants him in till then if possible b/c diabetic babies' lungs don't develop as fast, but out by then b/c she doesn't want him too big!

    My 2 cents...

    Whoa! Thats one funky OB's office you go to. I wear clothes to my appointments.

    well... at least YOU'RE going to have your baby before thanksgiving. I just know in my heart of hearts this child is going to be later than late, and I'll be the one served up for thanksgiving as being most-stuffed!

    but when's your actual due date again? I'll make my bets after I hear your date again...
