Doctors are so wish-washy!

So, I had another run to the hospital on Friday and the nurses and residents thought I was contracting and going into labor, but no go. I got sent home and went in this morning for my check-up. Baby is doing good and measuring 2 weeks ahead but because of all the strange symptoms I now have to go do NSTs(non-stress tests) and get AFI measurements. All to make sure I don't go into labor on my own. The worry before was if I could make it to 36 weeks and now we are told the hospital won't let me deliver until the 8th of June unless it's an emergency for me or the baby. ARRRGH!
They put me on bedrest so to keep me going until 36 weeks and now I have to go until June, no fair. It creates real problems because Eric leaves on the 14th for a seminar and I won't get home until the 12th. So I have to recoop., take care of a newborn, put my 2 older girls back in school on the 15th, and take care of the 3 younger ones all on my own for 5 days. Yeah right. Oh yeah, our house is completely full of stairs, the enemy for a C-section recooperation. I just love the doctors. They say I can only go early if something else goes wrong. So I'm put in the position of either recooperating on my own or wishing something goes wrong so I can have the baby early.
The doctors just don't know one way or another which is the best. My doctor would love to be able to deliver me at 37 weeks, but his hands are tied by the hospital. ARRRGH, is all I have to say! So that's what's going on here. It's very frustrating and I am so done being pregnant, but what are you going to do. So I'm just going to sit back and see what happens.
Thanks for reading my rant, hope all is well with all of you and enjoy the nice weather!


  1. Having had weekly NST's with the twins for the last 6 or so weeks, I feel your pain. They told me that I'd be lucky to make it to the end of November with the twins, then wouldn't schedule my c-section until the 20th of December. I went into labor myself the week earlier and luckily my doctor had an opening and they let me have my c-section on the 13th (during lunch).

    I wish you similar luck. If all falls into place for June, would you let me come out and help you one day? It'd be super fun :)

  2. Oh Krystal, I'm so sorry! That is so frustrating. I hope things work out well...we'll be waiting for updates and can't wait to meet your new baby whenever she comes!

  3. I am so sorry! Maybe things will just work out so the baby will come before June will ever hit. We will be praying for you!

  4. Oh Krystal, that sucks. I'm really sorry.
