Hey there!
So had a doctor apt today, the out come is.....I HATE MY DOCTOR!!!
So two weeks ago he was talking about giving me a c-section instead of inducing because the baby is so big, I am in horrible pain due to the SPD and can't move.
Now he is saying, "Why don't we just let things happen naturally, I mean you have gotten this far, and the baby is very big, he should come any time now, and for your case he better because the SPD will only get worse as he gets bigger."
I am 34 weeks, and Stone is measuring 36 weeks. SO that is where we are now.
He scheduled for my midwife to come out next Tuesday morning since I have only seen her once at the start of the pregnancy, and he scheduled for me to come back at 38 weeks. PLEASE PRAY THAT I WILL HAVE DELIVERED BY THEN.
And he made Paul and I feel OH so much better when we voiced our concerns about all the pain med's I am on, and that now I wake up in the middle of the night in pain and have to take the med's, he told us that we will have to deliver at Heartlands Hospital where they have a neonatal unit because there is a chance Stone will go through withdrawal!!! I almost died at the thought of my baby being addicted to pain med's. When I told him I hate taking them but I have no choice because of the pain I am in, he agreed and said I could even up the dosage if I wanted to, but the baby is still better off inside me and if he was born addicted it would be a small addiction. THEY TELL ME THIS NOW?? In any case, here is a picture of me today, yes my hair is red because the med's had turned it green, so I dyed it temporarily red, not sure if I will go back to blonde or not.
Love to all,
From the miserable Bitch!

Jun. 3, 2008 at 8:46 AM Oh, you poor Boo. Of all the horrible things to be told before you get ready to give birth-"Uh, Stone might be addicted to pain pills, but it's no biggie?" WHAAAAAT? And let you have birth naturally-excuse me, over here, a doctor would've opted for a C-section by now, what w/Stone's size and your general discomfort. You will have to tell me what SPD is-I'm sure it's not pleasant, whatever it is. Lots of hugs!!

Sorry hon! Keep hanging in there! Speaking as a Neo-Natal RN, I don't think he'll go through that much withdrawl.  Unless you've been using crack or heroin recently. : )  Actually it depends on the length of time you've been taking it and how high the dose is.  Even if he does show some signs, it should be only temporary, ok.  Try not to stress about that. Just concentrate on going into labor! : ) You're a trooper! Let me know if you have any questions! XOXO

My doc said the same thing, and then waited until I was a week late to induce. I ended up with an emergency c-section at 10:30pm afterbeing induced at 4am and a child who was 9lbs 1oz. After the fact, she applogized and said I should never have been made to wait that long and there was no way he could have been delivered vag with a head that big!

Doctors are not God. They do make mistakes. Question Everything!
