Sorry for the short rant but I figure everyone else seems to post to get stuff off their chests so here it goes.
I went to my OB for my weekly visit...can't believe I'm down to weeklies, I'm 37w6days...and the DR. wasn't there he was delivering a baby so I guess I should be forgiving. But I have to travel in major traffic to get to the appt. because I try to take them late in the day since I work. I get there essentially to pee in a cup and the nurse who sees me is just an idiot. I asked about getting checked to see where I'm at. She gives me the when I was pregnant I didn't do that, "when it comes it comes" kind of making me feel like a jerk for asking. Then she turns on the Ultrasound machine...and it's a total piece of ***. The image is just grainy and horrible compared to the Maternal Fetal Ultrasounds I get upstairs. So I'm like what are you doing and why am I here. Also there's no mention of the fact that I'm 38 weeks esssentially and this baby could come. I know it was a nurse but I almost feel like if your not doing anything why am I here...I might as well just wait to go into labor. Seriously. Next week I'm calling to make sure the Dr. is there before I go because seriously WTF. Doesn't 16 days to go count for something. I read about all you ladies getting your membranes sweeped and knowing your 1-2 cm dialated and 80 percent effaced, and I get *** for asking.
Sorry and thanks for any of you who made it partially thru that rant.
