Had a doctor's appointment yesterday (today I don't have one - yippee!! - free day!!) and unfortunately the baby fell asleep while they were trying to monitor their heart - so I had to be on the fetal monitor for about an hour and a half. That's a long time for a big pregnant woman to be sitting in the same position! Not to mention, they really had the heat cranked in that room and I was sweating when Dr. Frampton came in! I mean, really sweating! But, the baby finally did her stuff and I talked to him for about 5 minutes and then we were done.
It kind of makes me laugh that if we end up having the baby on Friday via c-section, I really have no idea what to expect. I remember working at the Orthodontist and letting each patient know what was coming - every single little tiny step - and that was just getting braces on! They're about to slice and dice and I have no idea when I'm even supposed to show up at the hospital! So, yesterday, I asked Dr. Frampton if there was any paperwork that their office handed out explaining the process or giving me any information I need to know. "Not really," he said. He sat down and talked to me for a few minutes about it, but I need the paper! I need to look on a sheet of paper and check off boxes, and make sure I know what's coming! Anyway, just the pre-baby jitters, I guess. And, I guess if I went into labor on my own, I wouldn't know exactly what was coming anyway... :) But still!
In other news, Ruthie has managed to finally say (with consistency) her first word. She's mumbled around with "Mamamamama" before, but never with a ton of recognition, so I won't let that count. Here is her ridiculous first word:
The girls love Minnie, but I'm not actually sure where they saw her in the first place. Anyway, Babers latched right on, so now I suppose we'll have to cart them all down to Disney World some day soon. But she has also started saying Mama, cracker, Noa (wa wa), nose, Nana, doggie... I think that's it. I think I might be the only one who can decipher some of them though... but, she's really trying! It is so cute! I'll have to get a video of it soon and post it.
Well... with that, I'm signing off. I don't have the girls this morning so I'm going to pack all of our hospital bags, which I'm excited about. I hate packing, but this will make me feel one step closer... Ah, what a week it will be!
