Doctor wheel of fortune

Q: How many doctors does it to give you a date of delivery?
A: As many answers as there are doctors

Dr 1: Dr hoff the ob/gyn view: “you can go to 38 weeks”
Dr 2: Dr hoff’s partner: “somewhere between 36 and 37. We’ll induce at 37. (remember – these Dr’s are in the same practice)
Dr 3: Dr Rockstar – the high risk Obgyn. He walks into his office with his standard gold chain, baseball cap, “just came from a rock concert look” and in his waiting room yells out “you are still pregnant? what are you doing here?” gives Mrs In Between a fist pump, has an enormous grin on his head and then disappears into his office, while everyone stares. Well not really on the stares, everyone knows Dr Rockstar’s style.

So who know. Mrs I is now officially 35 weeks and 5 days, which like I said last week, is frikking unbelievable. There is a sense of calm from the dr’s now like we are “done” and the talk about numbers to ring and what would trigger needing us to go down to the Hospital.

For some reason we also had a weigh in this week, (we thought that was only monthly) and beefcake and cheesecake are going super size. One weighed 6 lbs 10 oz and the other 6 lbs 5 oz. So one of these fatties has added nearly a pound in a week. Ok – reading are broads, but the technician was saying – “umm I had a 6lbs kid, but that was full term”.

Lastly for this week, the wand woman in the scans was winding me up about “hope you have some bling” thinking about Mrs I engagement ring being able to be put back on her finger, but then realized the chicks in the room were lining up a push present bash on dad to be. I knew I should have just shut up, I knew it, but of course I open my mouth”Oh, ok” I said, “well what do I get for building the nursery and everything else for the last 10 weeks?” and Mrs I without a min hesitation says “you push these kiddies out your penis and I’ll but you a present”… and well, with that said, we were done on that conversation and you could just smell the “go girl!” ‘tude in the room. Fair enough to I guess.

  1. Wow, you guys are doing great! I can’t believe how far you’ve made it and those sound like some really healthy babies in there. I’m looking forward to some fun news soon!

  2. Beefcake and Cheesecake! LOL! Glad all is well in your world. Crazy how so many doctors have different opinions on what is an “okay” gestation. As an ex-NICU nurse we considered anything prior 38 ‘premature’, but in reality 36 weeks and all did well unless there was an underlying issue.
    LOL on the push present. I have never heard of them until recently. Apparently down here those Pandora charm bracelets are all the rage. Then you have something to buy every holiday you can think of b/c you will have to add to it! 🙂
