38 Weeks.

I have a doctor's appointment today - this morning, actually. I've been pretty lazy about the appointments. Getting to Springfield and back during the week requires at least 3-4 hours of sick/vacation time to claim. I hate that. And Dave rarely goes with me, because it does take such a chunk out of the day.

But tomorrow, he's going with me, and I might go ahead and let them check me. I've been declining the checks up to this point. I suppose I could have started at 36 weeks. BUT WHY?!

Oh how I hate checks.

So much. So, so, so much. I can vividly remember my very first check when I was pregnant with Hallie. I was shocked. And I remember the three worst things about my labor/delivery with Hallie were:

1. The stupid blood pressure cuff
2. The IV and how they blew 18 million veins before they finally stuck me properly

They can just keep their hands to themselves.

I am pretty sure I am not dilated a bit. I don't feel any low pressure and the baby is moving around like crazy. I think I will make it up to my due date, just like with Hallie. And that's fine. There's enough going on between now and then to keep me busy. Things I don't want to miss.

Like the cutest dance recital in the world next weekend. I can't wait!

PS - I have created a baby pool. If you want to get in on the action, feel free to fill in your guesses!!!
