I decided to blog about my OB, Dr. Jeckyll & Mr. Hyde, over at My Best Birth. Here’s an excerpt:
So, I arrive this morning with my husband. After the nurse weighs me and takes my blood pressure, she tells me to unclothe waist-down. I then notice the ultrasound machine right by the bed. ”Uh oh,” I think. Compliant-patient side of me agrees to undress (though I know my cervix is still high and posterior). Not-gonna-comply-patient will not agree to an ultrasound!
This week, instead of having a big baby, I have “not a very big baby” (based on external palpation) . . . “maybe 6 6.5 pounds right now.” I’m measuring “right on” (which he didn’t say last week). Everything looks good. No worries. Who is this guy!? So, a very straight-forward appointment with Dr. Hyde this week. At this point, I am planning on keeping my 39 week appointment, just so he doesn’t get suspicious of anything. Suspicious of what, you might wonder?
