This might be scattered, I'm trying to collect my thoughts as best as possible.
I had an ultrasound and doctor appointment this morning. The baby looks good, size is estimated at 7 lbs. 5 oz to 8 lbs. 5 oz.
We'll be finding out today how much he really weighs!
Yes, I said today! We are getting ready to take the boys to a friends house for the evening/night and then we'll go check in at the hospital. We hope to be to the hospital a little after 3.
My appointment was so crazy. The ultrasound tech told us that my doctor had fallen over the weekend and wouldn't be back in until Wed. He fell changing a light bulb in the bathroom, and landed in the tub. At first, they thought he had a concussion and bleeding in the head but it ends up he only has facial fractures not requiring surgery.
After all that, she said they are just testing urine, weight and blood pressure today so I sent Drew back to work and kept the boys with me. I got called back fairly quickly, she checked the normal stuff and then left saying someone would be with me soon.
It seemed like quite a long wait with two little boys that I was trying to keep entertained in there and finally they come in and tell me that I am going to head over to a different doctor for my cervical check.
The boys and I trooped through the rain outside and made it to the other office. After another fairly longish wait in the waiting room and then getting right back in with the doctor, she determined I was at 4cm and said she would call labor and delivery to see if they are busy.
And that is the story of where we are at now.
I'm a little nervous, I am heading in for some voluntary pain and I'm praying that I have my expectations managed for how long I'll actually be in labor. I probably have too high of expectations. Sage was 4 hours and Kolby was less than an hour, it's hard to not have high expectations of a speedy delivery. We'll see.
I'm not positive the hospital has Wi-fi since I have never actually been on the labor or delivery floor! Guess, we'll be finding out.
Sorry this is scattered and I'm not going back for a read through. We need to be scooting out the door!
I won't leave you hanging...
