Some funny things the nurses/doctors have told me.

The doctor says to come back when things are more intense. 5 minutes apart and 1 minute long doesn't seem to be doing much. (1.5 weeks ago)

If your contractions get down to 10 minutes call the birthing center. (today)

Eat lightly...toast, broth, etc. (2.5 weeks ago, I'd be starving!)

I won't let you go past your due date. (1 month ago)

I'm thinking we'll induce next Thursday because your baby is much to large. (3 weeks ago)

The birthing center seems busy today, maybe we'll induce next week (2 weeks ago).

It seems like your body is handling this labor pretty well. We'll give it until next Friday and then I'll scare the baby out. (1 week ago)

If I didn't know any better, I would think you live in some tiny community with an old country doctor and his staff as your only available option.

What's he going to do, say, "Boo!!" really loud at your belly?"
