Okay I think I probably would have asked my MIL to apologize and/or leave if she did that. How awful! What was she thinking?! My mom sometimes takes my baby from me (well, when he was younger) and she does it to my siblings too. She gives this look and says "Here, let me take care of it" as if she knows better. It's infuriating. I'm not letting it happen this time. How unbelievably rude.
So my MW appointment today was... interesting. A few key points:
1. I scheduled a BPP/NST for my 40th week if I have not had the baby yet. Maternal-fetal medicine is recommending I start these weekly now (well last week, really) because of my gestational diabetes but I declined until week 40. I know that he is doing well. He's very active, growing, and does not at all seem large.
2. She talked to me about SPD because I was hobbling around today. She mentioned that some mothers find the pain during labor to be excruciating. She said she describes it as the difference between pain (which is expected during labor) and suffering. She said "it's reason enough to get an epidural". Obviously, an epidural isn't an option (birth center), and none of her mamas have ever transferred to the hospital for an epidural because of SPD pain, but she was just saying that it can be that bad. Um, help?! Should I do some research? Are there positions that are better/worse to labor in? I am not that concerned about it, but it does worry me a little bit.
3. I lost 3 lbs. Ha. Probably just from all the vomiting last night. yeesh.
