It's Going to Be a Long Weekend

Monday is the big day. That is if Skeletor doesn't come on his own. Doctor's appointment went well yesterday, but apparently my child enjoys his mommy so much he doesn't want to leave the womb. Mama Mia and I headed to Wilmington early for my appointment yesterday which was very long and consisted of a stress test, ultrasound, and exam. Lots of fun let me tell you. Mom went in with me during the stress test. I was hooked up to a contraction monitor and a fetal heart monitor, sat in a recliner, and was given a buzzer to click every time the baby moved. This went on for 20 minutes. The baby sounded like he was playing the drums or riding a horse on a cobblestone street. It was so loud! I know that in labor they hook you up to a fetal monitor, but I hope they cut the volume down because it became annoying after about 10 minutes. Does that make me a bad mom?

After they unhooked me, I had an ultrasound. This is the first time I've seen him in like 3 months. He still looks like a skeleton to me, but he definatly looked crammed in there. He kept looking at me and mom, which made it clear that he was perfectly content being in the womb.

During the exam, Dr. Hall informed me that I was still only 1 cm dialated! WTF???? So she is giving Skeletor the weekend to come on his own, and if he still isn't here by Sunday they will induce me on Monday. While I would really prefer for him to come on his own, I am really glad to know that there is an end in sight. It's much more comforting to have an actual day to go to the hospital and to know that he will be here soon.
