"BOO! BOO! RUBBISH! FILTH! SLIME! MUCK! BOO! BOO! BOO!"
No? Well, begin watching this at the 5:24 mark to get the full effect. Or you can watch the whole thing to test your Princess Bride skillz. I just love that movie, but I digress.
That was pretty much my feeling after my visit to the OB today. I'm due on Thursday, that's just three days from now, and yet there's still NOTHING going on in the baby-vacating-the-premises-department. I saw him last Thursday, and he wanted to see me again today. He actually looked disappointed himself, and maybe a little sad. He said he was really surprised at the lack of progress that's going on.
I woke up at 5:30 Saturday morning, and laid in bed awake for two hours with LOTS of pressure and discomfort. I just KNEW I'd be waking up Hubs any minute to tell him my water had broken and we needed to get the heck out of Dodge... and fast, since we live outside of town. Eventually I fell asleep again, and woke up to the feeling gone. I was so sure it would be the day. The funny thing is, Hubs said he had that same feeling, minus the pressure and discomfort. The big jerk was sleeping pretty soundly from what I could tell. Same thing on Sunday. So when I went to the doc today, I just knew he was going to freak out that I had a baby staring back at him, and rush me over to the hospital to deliver.
But nooooooooooo. THIS baby isn't ready to come out yet. And not for some time, apparently. Hubs walked me to the car, and I bit his head off about something (does it really matter what?) and he said, "Hey! Don't turn this into a gripe-fest at me! I'm just as anxious as you are to get this baby out!"
(They're getting louder.)
Then he amended it by saying, "Okay. Maybe I'm not quite as anxious as you are. But I really do want you to have him soon!"
So forgive my grumpy moodiness, if you will.
I am soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo over housing a toddler in my abdomen.
Please, everyone, send OPEN thoughts my way. My cervix thanks you.
P.S. To the
men that read this blog man that reads this blog my brother: I'm sorry I typed the word cervix.
