Inches Around - Still 52"
So my appointment was at 8:50. I told the receptionist ladies that I needed a sonogram today because Dr Read said every week I needed one but he forgot to schedule it for today. They said they would check, then sent me back without checking with Dr. Read because he might do it himself. Since when does an OB do sonograms themselves?? I got in around 10:00, not too bad. Of course he said I needed a sonogram. So I settle down to wait to be fit in in-between regular appointments and the 5 (!) emergency ones they had to do. So long story short. I get out of there at 1:15!!! I had to get something to eat at one point because it was just getting ridiculous. Ugh!! The thing about being friendly with your doctor's staff is they tend to see you as more a friend and not a patient. I can't really complain about it because we do know each other so well, so I just sucked it up.
OK, on to the important info. Dr. Read says I am doing extremely well. He said that even with my cervix opening that I could still go all the way until July 2nd. He agrees that I have dropped. They had to go way down with the Doppler to hear Abigail's heartbeat. He reassured me that the baby's weights are good even though they haven't gained hardly any this past week. He said the sonograms can be inaccurate plus their weight gain does tend to slow down. This along with my actual loss of weight is not surprising. Keep in mind that we have two different sonogram machines and two different scales in two different Dr's offices going here. I saw both girls breathe, plus I got to see Abigail's face which I hardly ever get to see because she is so far down there. Olivia is still laying transverse, across my belly. They were both moving like crazy and kicking up a storm.
All is well, again. He said he wants me doing next to nothing all day. I assured him that is my routine; next to nothing all day long, every day. I should be enjoying this because soon it will not be the case.
There was an over abundance of little girl babies in the office today. Believe me I saw a lot come through in the 2 and a half hours I was waiting!! Anyway, there was one that was 6 weeks old. She was so tiny, my gosh, tiny. She weighed 7 something when she was born so my girls will be at least a pound smaller than that and I just can't imagine it! The mom had her mom there to help her and I just thought to myself, "I will have two of those tiny things." It became a little more real to me. It is becoming more and more real everyday.
I can't wait to see my girls!!
