last weekly appointment

11:30am – Wednesday 11/11/2009

Little did I know last Wednesday would be my last weekly appointment. It was not a good day. I was in a lot of pain and I didn’t sleep much the night before (or pretty much the last 4 days). We did all the normal things like piac, weight and bp before seeing the doctor. OMG, my bp had sky-rocketed compared to my normal. Normal blood pressure for me is 110/60. That day it went up to 158/98. The nurse actually went and got someone else to take it just to be sure.

I kind of knew in the back of my mind that this was it. This was the beginning of the end of my pregnancy. So of course I started crying. I’m crying right now thinking about it. =)

I go into the room and the doc is in there before I get my pants off. She sees me crying, looks at my stats and does her thing. She told me I was 2 cm dilated, 80% effaced and 0 station.

Before she had her glove off, she asked me what my plans were for this evening. I said, “with any luck, having a baby.” She said it’s time. She couldn’t send me home knowing how much pain I was in. Then she said, “I’m kind of glad you blood pressure was high. This gives me the go-ahead to send you in.”

Here we go!!
