As you may already know from my last post, I had another visit with my OBGYN yesterday. So much fun. I spent nearly an hour in the waiting room, and about 10 minutes in the actual patient room, and probably a whoppin' 3 whole minutes with the Dr. Not a happy woman was I. My blood pressure was a little high, which was contributed to the Nifidepine, and everything else checked out perfectly. I came to the office prepared with a list of questions for Dr. O and all of them were answered, none with an answer I was happy with. Dr. O wants me to go another week on the Nifedipine. He'll be taking me off of it next Wednesday (at my next appointment) and then we'll "see what happens". I wanted to kick him in the shins and say "I'm going to start contracting harder and go into labor, Dummy!" but I was good and restrained myself. What I wanted him to say was that we could schedule a C-Section right then but apparently there is some national law that prohibits Dr.s from scheduling preterm c-sections (before 39 weeks or something like that) unless the mother is in some sort of danger (which I am not, thankfully). On Monday (or is it Tuesday?) I have an appointment with Maternal Fetal Medicine to have another ultrasound and talk with the new specialist. Did I ever mention that Dr. R quit? She couldn't handle the commute from Atlanta anymore. Can't say I blame her, but it would have been nice to have had the same Dr. through this whole mess. Oh well. That's life, right? Now, again... still.... it's a waiting game. Not a fun game mind you... but waiting I will be.
Still having contractions. In fact, I'm surprised that I didn't wind up in the hospital early this morning. They were coming every 2 and a half minutes yesterday and lasting for about a minute and half. Like always, they aren't very strong, but still strong enough that I have to breathe through some of them. I'm feeling nauseous a lot lately and my sides (esp. the right one) hurts so bad now that it feels the best when I'm laying down, so I'm doing a lot of that now. Let me tell you, my days are jam packed with fun and adventure. Sometimes I will read AND watch a book all at the same time. It's crazy! Luckily I have a fun weekend planned with my sis, Kacey. She and I are going to have some photography fun and I think that it is exactly what I need right now. Don't worry, it doesn't require movement on my part. ;) Well, I gotta go. It's time for me to... well, sit here and stare into the abyss. I just can't cancel that again.
