1 1/2 – 2 cm

Had my doctor’s appointment today. It took forever, I was seriously thinking of opening the door and asking if they had forgotten about me. I sat in the exam room for at least 30 minutes waiting, and that was after waiting about 15 minutes to be called back. The appointment was scheduled for noon, and it was almost 1:00 when I got to see the doctor. The whole time I was nauseous because all I had eaten was an english muffin for breakfast and I really needed lunch. At least the lab folks were on the ball, I didn’t even get to sit down before I was called to the lab area.

The labs all still look fine, and they are happy with my weight and measurements. Although she did say I was measuring on the small side of normal, but I wonder if that is just because the baby has dropped. When she did the cervix check she said it was about 1.5 to 2 centimeters dilated now, and said that was good progress (it was less than 1cm two weeks ago). I was really hoping for more, but I suppose it is only the 38th week. I am just so ready to get this kid out.

I don’t remember if I said this already, but I stopped taking my nausea medicine Sunday since I am working from home full time now. I might have to give in an start taking it again though, it hasn’t worked out so great. I threw up Monday and Tuesday, and nearly threw up this morning. And once I finally got to eat lunch at 1:30 today, I threw all of that up. I really don’t want to take the medicine anymore, but it is looking like my choices are to either risk throwing up all the time or just suck it up and take the medicine a little while longer.

The next appointment is scheduled for Thursday afternoon…
