The wait game
5

I can't believe it...

My ankles are gone. 

The Ankles are gone...

Overnight, my ankles and feet have swollen up and are unrecognizable.  Kanckles, whatever you call them I have them now. My shoes officially do not fit me anymore.  Except for my Birkenstock and I had to loosen the strap to the very last hole and they are still tight! Thank goodness the weather has taken a turn for the better lately...

After having lunch with a friend today, I headed to the clinic for my pre-natal course on relaxation and preparation for re-entry to the home after the my clinic stay.  Julien came with me as he had the day off today.  I could not focus to save my life. I felt hot. Hotter than normal and the baby was moving around like crazy. I could tell the sage femme noticed, she kept looking at me with wide eyes and asking me if I was okay. I wasn't ok. I felt so hot. Sweaty and my feet felt like they were pulsating from all the pressure.  She sent me upstairs to have my blood pressure checked and to put me on a monitor to check on the baby.  Rest assured my blood pressure was normal and the baby was just fine. And I found out that I was having contractions every 15 minutes! I looked at the sage femme with big eyes and told her I really wasn't feeling anything that felt like contractions.  I've just been feeling a slight pressure at the base of my belly. I thought contractions felt like menstrual cramps!   She then asked if it were my first baby. Well, yes... she smiled and said well the machine doesn't lie.

So,   I happened to see my doctor at the clinic and he had talked to the sage femme who was monitoring me and he said that the baby is probably on his way. Sent me home and said to put my feet up and wait for his appearance. But he did say he could come tomorrow or in two weeks. Nice time range there, doctor...

So, again I'm playing the wait game. :)  At least I'm making progress on the baby sweater and have good stuff like this to read...
