Boring Dr's Visit

I had another OB visit today. It's down to once a week, which is exciting, except that today's visit ended up being verrrrrry boring.

My blood pressure was slightly elevated (probably due to the fact that I had had only two glasses of water all day, along with two cups of coffee). My weight was up by two pounds, which is kind of a lot, since it had only been a week since my last weigh-in. But again, the lack of water could have contributed to that. Baby's heartbeat was nice and strong, thank goodness. That's always my favorite part of the appointment, and makes the boring parts worth it. :) Other than that, there was really nothing to report. She didn't check me this time for dilation or effacement, so I have no idea if there's been any progression. But I'll be there again next week, so we'll see what happens.

In other news, I went shopping with my sister the other day. At the checkout counter, the woman asked me when I was due, and then asked how old Stephanie was. When I told her, she said "wow, you're going to have your hands full." I so badly wanted to respond with "Better full than empty!" but I just didn't quite have to guts to do it. I wish I could be so bold!

Then today at the grocery store, I was chatting with the cashier and bagger, and after everything was rung up, I handed the cashier my coupons, said "thank you" and started to walk away. She called me back saying "Ummm, this is the part where you pay me for the food..." Talk about embarrassing! Luckily we had been having a friendly conversation, so she said it in a joking way. But still. I was pretty mortified.

Ahhh, I need this baby to come soon so I can start to feel like a functioning human being again. (After I get through the months of sleep deprivation that is.)
