Back-Up Doctor

Went to see my back-up doctor yesterday evening. It was the first time I've ever met this man. People aren't kidding, the man has HUGE hands. Luckily, it was more of a meet-n-greet type of appointment, so he didn't do a cervical check. After seeing his hands, I can't tell you how happy I am that he didn't check me.

He did palpate the baby, though. That means he used his hands to feel around my belly to check the position of the baby. And he confirmed my thoughts that the baby is head down, but still sitting high, not ready for birth quite yet.

She just has to wait a few more days before our regular doctor is back in town...

Um, coming from someone who has experienced "big Hands Hucker," you're lucky to have avoided his fingered appendages.
