aerdran: (Winged Horse)
I went to the doctor today, after getting absolutely no sleep at all last night, I might add. I just couldn't fall asleep, which is not unusual lately. This time I just didn't manage even a small amount. I did get about three to four hours sleep after coming home, though. So at least it's something.

However, when I talked to the doctor, I was rather adamant about wanting to get this over with. I told him that he could take the baby out right then and it would be fine with me. He laughed and then actually asked me if I wanted him to try something that would help speed it up, and I was more than happy to say yes. It wasn't that big a deal, just something called stripping the membranes, which I won't go into detail about because I'm kind. It took less than a minute, though. I was already dilated to the size of a quarter before he did it, so he said that all looks promising for delivery this weekend. This could be over before Monday! Woohoo!

It's not that I don't like being pregnant, actually. I do, but I've just been so uncomfortable and sore lately that I'm ready for it to be over. We shall see just how soon this happens. I'd really like it to happen today, but if it's meant to be Sunday, that's what's meant to be. It does have its bonuses. Not only is that Halloween, but my father-in-law's birthday as well. He'd be thrilled if she shared his birthday. But hey, the sooner, the better. Tomorrow we go out to pick up the remainder of the stuff we really need, and then we'll be set. I am definitely anxious to meet this little monster child who enjoys pummeling me! It's also cool that this weekend Dr. Phillips is actually on call, so I wouldn't end up with his backup. I've never met his backup so have nothing against him, but I prefer my own doctor to do these things. I did get an appointment made for next Thursday, just in case this doesn't work, but he doesn't expect to see me then. Everyone keep your fingers crossed!

So that's it for now. I'm going to consider going to bed before too long, but we'll see. John likes to turn the heat up in the room to a temperature that is too hot for me, so I'm not in a huge hurry. That's probably part of the reason I can't sleep so well. That and the fact that the baby just loves to start constantly moving after I lie down. She's trying to encourage me to eject her, I think. If I don't talk to any of you before the baby comes, I'll do some updating not long after, hopefully with pictures posted. I'm sure you all are waiting anxiously for those!
