I had another doctor appointment this morning – am supposed to schedule a visit to the local clinic and see an antenatal GP once every week now until the big bang happens!
So, off I went this morning. With my list of things to ask – or rather my mum’s list of things to ask!!
I especially wanted to know whether there had been any update in the “out of five scale” to how far the head was down as that is an indication of how close apparently you are to giving birth. I have been getting a lot of pressure and pains – which are probably contractions or the little monkey pushing down – and so was curious to what she would say.
Sadly though this check-up was with another doctor I had not seen before, as they alternate, and this one today was unfriendly and on auto-pilot!
It was an in-and-out and “Next!” scenario!
Sit down, check my urine sample, check my blood pressure, lie on the bed (without even bothering to put any sheet down!), belly out, measure baby, press for head down, listen to heartbeat, belly in and DONE!
No hello. No goodbye.
Just business. Belly business!
I mean, all of the checks she did came back fine but there was no place for questions or answers or any sort of environment to do so anyway…certainly not like with the other nicer woman!
She may have been having a bad day this doctor, or rushed for something, or who knows…but it left my mum speechless and she is NEVER speechless! She didn’t want to ask anything! I think she was thrown off by her robotic appointment to say anything! And it whisked straight past her!
So now I don’t have any clue if the head has moved down further than last week, which was a 5 of 5 then, so who knows if birth is imminent or not! I assume she would have said something if so, but I guess we will see if it is!
Anyway, my next appointment is made for next Wednesday and thankfully it’s with the other doctor who I have seen twice already and who is lovely…so until then I guess…unless the little schmonkie decides he wants to make a preview appearance! It sometimes feels like he will!
How about you wait until your daddy (that is sooooooooooo strange to say!!!!!) arrives on Sunday…at least, little one!!! Deal?
