On Why I Don't Look 8 1/2 Months Pregnant...

Went to the doctor today, I'm 1.5 cm dilated and "if she was any lower, she'd be talking to us." So I think that means 100% effaced (and have been for a while). The doctor asked me, randomly, "So do people ask you why you don't look very pregnant this late in the game?" Me: "Uh, yeah, some do." Him: "Do you tell them that half the baby is in your vagina?" Me: "Uh, I'm usually not that blunt, but..."

It was actually very funny, though I think it loses something in translation.

Too funny! That kid wants out...I hope she stays put for another week or two for you...and then... :)

Still sending you good labor and birth vibes.

I forgot...one of my midwives joked with me about my water breaking during my PhD defense...as it turned out, it broke early in the morning two days before my defense - a much better scenario.

But I like health care providers with a sense of humor too.
