Remember when I talked last week about getting my membranes stripped...and everyone has like, "Yep it hurts like a no one's business but you'll totally have your baby over the weekend!"?? Well I have been on a total roller coaster ever since.
I ended up deciding against doing it last Friday. I honestly felt a little rushed seeing as we had plans that weekend to go to Babies R Us for things we still needed before the baby was born. And I selfishly wanted just one more weekend home just the hubs and me. Plus, putting off the inevitable pain seemed like a good idea. So I told my doc and we were all prepared to do it yesterday.
Until I got there and she wasn't in the office.
I had psyched myself up the entire car ride there. I still wasn't looking forward to it, per say, but I was ready. Well, as ready as I was going to be. And now what was a girl to do?
I'm sure I could've had the procedure done by another doctor if I really wanted to. But I didn't even bring it up. I would rather have my own doctor do it, and if I went into labor very soon...my doc clearly was no where in site to deliver my baby...which I also was not crazy about.
So looks like it's Friday! I'll be 39 weeks. I'm in no rush to have our little girl so I'm not super bummed about not having the procedure done yet...I just feel like it's been hanging over my head. It'll be nice to get it out of the way and hopefully get this show on the road!
