My apologies in taking so long to update you! I needed to crash first.
So, I met up with my mum at about 3:30pm and hopped on the bus to the clinic. We got there at 4pm, to find an empty waiting room. Awesome! Went in to see the midwife straight away. Blood pressure was fine, weight showed I gained another half a kilo - meaning I'm now at 86kg. I'm happy with that. We listened to Creature's heartbeat which was strong and steady. She then asked me if I will be breastfeeding.
I sighed. I told her I was not sure yet,and explained the difficulties I see me facing with breastfeeding and that if I will go down that road, it will only be for the first month or so. I explained how soon I will be returning to work and the long hours I work. She seems to have understood where I'm coming from and said that my hesitation is understandable, but that a month is better than none at all and that it is worth giving it a shot.
We then went in to see the Prof. After a few minutes of us waiting for him, he walked into the room and asked us to go into the bigger office which was now vacant. He asked me to get on the couch, and we did n ultrasound scan. Everything appeared to be fine. Creature's growth is spot on!
Then, the words were spoken.
"You will be checking in at the hospital on Sunday at 10:30am"
I nodded and tried to stay calm. He got the midwife to check how many people were scheduled to give birth on the Monday - and it turned out there were5 of them already. So he said "OK, so you go in on Sunday for them to keep you under observation, then we start the induction for the birth to happen on Tuesday."
There. You know now. Creature's arrival is scheduled for the 31st of January 2012.
