Today I met the last of 7 doctors at the practice where I go. It was a girl doctor (one of three) and she was delightful! Let me take you through some tidbits of the conversation:
Dr. V: Wow you have a long torso! I bet people tell you that you don't look 9 monthes pregnant!
Me: TWICE ALREADY TODAY! :) In fact the cashier at the store guessed 4 monthes along.
Dr. V: Women with long torsos tend to have easier labors so that is a good thing.
Me: (I'M THINKING "WOW THANKS FOR JINXING ME INTO A HORRIBLE LABOR FOR SURE"!!!)
Dr. V: He's sure in there pretty lopsided.
Me: Everytime I come he wedges over onto the left side!
Dr. V: His head is WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY LOW!! And your cervix is still tightly closed but it is thinning and softening. So you are 0 cm dilated but 70 % effaced; just how you want it to be!
Me: (I'm thinking "ACTUALLY I 'want' this kid out yesterday" LOL).
So yeah overall the visit made me smile because it everything was A-O-K. My blood pressure was at my pre-pregnancy super low ammount and I'm back down 2 lbs from last week; totaling 26 lbs gained.
