This was probably the quickest appointment I've ever had throughout my pregnancy. The doctor came in, asked me what I've been feeling and I told him about my copious amounts of BH, back pain, hip pain, etc. He basically just responded that it sounds like things are moving forward and that I'm almost there. He didn't check me because he felt it was unnecessary. Quote: "I could check you and you have no progress and still go in labor today. I could also check you and you be 4 cm and 75% and be stuck like that for two more weeks. No point in putting you through it."
He attempted to listen to the HB but LO wouldn't stay still - at all. Every time he would get close to hearing more than 3 beats LO would move to a different position or squirm. I think since he could physically see baby boy moving on the outside of my belly he was satisfied enough not to time a HB.
He asked how big DH and I were at birth (I was 6 lbs 4 oz and DH was 6 lbs 7 oz) and he goes, "this is definitely bigger than a 6 lb baby." Lol. Joy.
He left it at saying, "Tell your baby he can send you into labor any time he wants, we are ready for you."
