I wish! 39 weeks 1 day pregnant. Went with false labor to L&D on Friday night, but the contractions were non-productive. I am still 1 cm 60 % effaced and -1 station. Although for the life of me, I don't know if I want to feel what anything below a -1 station feels like at this point. A 0 must be miserable, because he is SO LOW.
I have my dr's appt today, so we'll see what he says.
Have I mentioned I can't believe I'm not in labor yet? My mother and my sister both delivered babies early. My mom was a week early with me, and two weeks early with my sister, and my sister was 5 days early with my niece. Sigh.
And I SO didn't want to go to class today. Oh well - guess I'm going!
One my favorite patients has Stickler Syndrome. He had his challenges as a young infant, went home on an oxygen saturation monitor and had feeding problems, but now he is an entirely normal 7 year old and smarter than most!
Thank you for the patient example kpzr- it helps to know there is a light at the end of the tunnel. We have so many hopes and dreams for our children, and since her birth we have almost been afraid to think in those terms.
Surgery is scheduled for ~ 10 hours from now, will try to update when I can. Nervous, but also excited, as she is getting the metal out, which cannot be comfortable for her to have.
Thanks for the support ladies- it helps more than you will ever know! This has truly been a journey, and one that I think will ultimately make me a better physician- someday. For now, one day at a time, one day at a time...
Southern- Hoping you are in labor, or better yet, have that perfect little man in your arms!
