So I'm officially 39 weeks. I had my appointment on Thursday. It went well. The drive there and back was torturous! My husband is allowed to have a company driver, so we don't have a car here and don't drive. As his wife I also have a privilege to use company drivers, so they give me rides to the clinic and other places I need to go. Traffic is horrible in Moscow! No surprise it's a capital city with millions of cars and horrible road plans. Sometimes my rides to the clinic last forever. If the traffic is good it takes about 45-60 minutes to get there and back, if it's bad it could be up to 2 hours. Horrible.
Now my appointment. As I mentioned before my doctor is going to be out of town till November 10th. It was unexpected but totally possible, I guess. She recommended another doctor to fill in for her while she is away. I never heard her name but I'm looking forward to meeting her on the coming Tuesday. I have mixed feelings about the whole situation. I checked the new doctor's profile and I'm not that thrilled that she has only three years of experience opposed to many years like my doctor. At the same time my doctor wouldn't recommend just anybody, she will find someone she trusts etc., not to mention all doctors are good and professional there. I guess I'm overreacting as it's my first time and there is nothing I can do to change the situation. My parents are doctors and they say that 3 years of experience is good and that I and the baby will be fine. I sure hope so!
It was interesting to hear my doctor's ideas on my due dates. She said that most likely I will go in labor between November 7th and November 14th. If it doesn't happen until then, they will start induction on November 15th. It was exciting to hear the real dates. We'll see. My doctor is back on November 10th and I have an appointment with her in the morning, of course, if our guy doesn't decide to be born before that.
It's going to be very interesting as my husband's birthday is on November 8th and his Dad's birthday is on November 14th. We are wondering if our son will have his own birthday or steel it from either his Dad or Grandad :)
Speaking of Chris' birthday. We decided that we will start pre-celebration this weekend in case we won't get to celebrate his birthday on the actual date. Of course, his first question was if he is getting a gift tonight :) No, the gift comes on the actual birthday! So tonight I'm making home-made pizza and hot chicken wings with blue cheese dip. Everything sounds great! The wings are in the oven right now and smell awesome.
On Monday will be our 2nd Anniversary! Again, nothing big this year. I'll make special dinner and I have also requested to get a bottle of champagne to have a toast. I think that we'll just watch the video of our ceremony and have a nice quiet evening at home. We are not getting any gifts for each other as we have bought a good video camera and decided that it's our gift to us this year.
Now you won't believe what happened to me today. I went grocery shopping to our local store. So I got sausage, mayo, mozarella cheese etc. I was standing by the cheese shelf trying to decide what blue cheese to get when one of the guys passing by me says: Excuse me, you have water dripping from somewhere! At first, I did not understand who he was talking to and what he meant. He repeated what he said, adding that there is water on the floor around me. Of course, my first thought was:" Oh My God, my water broke! My heart jumped up. It took me about 20-30 seconds to realize that my pants are not wet. I thought: "How could it break if I don't feel it? Is it possible that it broke and is just there without me feeling it? This kind of stupid thoughts went through my head while I stood there staring at the guy and the floor around me which was wet with some white liquid. I wish I could see my face when I looked at the guy. He obviously saw my frustration or fear and said:" I think it's dripping from your basket!" It took me quite a few seconds to discover that it was the stupid mozarella pack leaking!!!! Can you believe it? Of course, it could only happen to me when I'm very close to the due date and it has always been my fear that my water breaks while I'm grocery shopping at the local supermarket and everyone sees it! Hilarious, right?
Well, we'll see what happens when it's all for real.
