9 lbs!?!?!?!? I hope not . But hey, at this point in the game as long as she just freakin' comes, she can be as big as she darn well wants to be lol.
Okay, so I met with my midwives yesterday. Kinda. One of my midwifes, my senior midwife up and went to Florida this week because apparently her mom needed her. I found this out yesterday at my appt. And guess who'll be taking her place if baby comes before this Saturday night (when she's expected to return)? The only midwife I DON'T really click with!! So, my plan was to be getting my membranes stipped later on in the week (thurs-Sat night kinda deal) but since my midwife is gone I don't really want to go ahead and do that and risk being uncomfortable or stalling the labor because the one lady I don't like is there. So now I'm forced to wait until Sunday night unless Avi decides she wants to join us which is becoming a distant reality . And on top of all that my bp at my appt. yesterday was 140/90 (which is boarderline and cannot get any higher or homebirth will be out) and my swelling has now moved from a +3 to a +4. Nice, huh? So I basically had a breakdown in their office because of all the stress with the midwife being gone and finding that out when I got there, my bp being all wacked, the jump in swelling (which caused a 10 lbs weight gain in a week) and....uh....it just keeps getting worse and worse. So now I have to have my bp taken morning and night, they gave me pills to take and bed rest will have to be my friend to make sure my bp doesn't go up anymore. Thankfully it was down a bit this morning so that's good. The plan is to wait until Sunday night now when hopefully my other midwife will be back to get the ball rolling. And if that doesn't work?? Possible a hospital induction? I don't know what they'll do at that point. All I know is that I'm at my wits end with this and I just want to be healthy and have a healthy baby with as little intervention as possible. So I will def keep you all posted but as of now there's been no labor signs and I'm just getting more miserable by the day. Oh and now I've been throwing up in my sleep and choking on it because of all the pressure on my stomach. Fun, huh??? I'm sorry to complain but I am just at the end of my rope! Thank goodnesss my mom and sister are here to help! I hate to complain, I really do....but this is getting so hard [:'(]
