Pregnant for eternity....

Yup, that's me....pregnant till the end of time. :( NOTE: This is a little bit of a pity post -- just a heads up...

Went to the doctor today. My NST yielded good results, after some effort. The girls were not cooperating and I started feeling sick again like I had at last Thursday's NST. And now my doctor has changed the order so that they also do a sonogram to check my amniotic fluid levels after each NST. I have to lie flat on my back for that....not fun.

Sooooo, then we saw the doctor. Actually, we saw Rita, the nurse-midwife. I guess Dr. Silver was delivering a baby again. After asking if I was having any contractions/pain (no), she said, "I think you're gonna go all the way with these babies, Sarah." I wanted to verify that she meant 37 weeks and she said (with a grimace on her face), "He'll probably let you go longer..." At that point, I said a bad word. :/ oops

For kicks and giggles, I asked her to measure my fundus height. She did; then she laughed and said, "Oh honey." She checked my record and said I was 10 cm bigger than the last time she measured (4 weeks ago). That puts me at a lovely 53 cm!!!! With 3-4 weeks left. AAAAAACCCKKKK!!!!

And so she encouraged me to start begging. :) I'll be e-mailing him again at the end of the week with my blood sugar numbers and I intend to start planting the seeds.

Sorry if this blog post sounds a bit random - Kirsten is sitting next to me and just informed me that most of my recent blog posts haven't made much sense. Hopefully most of you can still follow along. :)

*&!@# Just keep saying to yourself, "It's going to be worth it, it's going to be worth it..." and you'll pull through!

Just be glad that you don't have my doctor, which let me go 2, yes 2 weeks past my date with C. At the end, I measured 45 cm with one baby.

You don't have to worry! Those gals are coming July 31, I promise! I hope you can make it 'til then. I know you must be miserable by now. Glad Kirsten is there with you and Abby. Is Zac still gone to Denver?

Love you all! Meemaw and Pa

Ahhhh, I'm sorry! The time seems to drive by slower and slower the longer and longer you go, huh? What are your arrangements for help when the babies come? My first OB (with Sophie) induced me early b/c my father had taken off work and my parents were coming out. Maybe he would go earlier if you had plans in place for help from out of town?

Wow on your fundus height :) lol You should definitely start taking pictures each week and posting them!
