Maybe I am just being cranky bc I'm 38 weeks pregnant, but I don't understand the fascination with late-pregnancy appointments. I have had no fewer than 5 family members call me today to inquire about my appointment.
"How was your appointment???!?"
"Well? Any news?"
"Well I peed in the cup without peeing on my hand. And I only gained one pound last week.....?"
Seriously, people, I pee in a cup, I stand on the scale, and the midwife says, "Yay, no protein in your urine! Call me when your water breaks!" That's it. And even if I *did* have information about the dilation or effacement of my cervix, I'm not about to tell my father-in-law. I do not understand the fascination. Please tell me I'm not the only one with crazy family.
