Edward Cullen. Now, please keep in mind that in theory, I have a crush on the character of Edward Cullen, not Robert Pattinson as a person necessarily (how's that for lame justification?). If you haven't read the books, the movie just isn't the same. I am now in the fourth book, Breaking Dawn, and am still in love and intrigued by these characters. It's rare that you find a book or book series that literally draws you in so deep you're convinced it's real. I love when that happens. That's why I read. There is so much more I could say, but it would just make me look like a lovesick teenager. Fine, I'm a lovesick 23-year-old who is obsessed with a fictional character. But I'm not alone....and there are people much more pathetic than I am. I think.
I had my wonderful, amazing, relaxing, and calming pre-natal massage today, given to me by Kurt for Christmas. I am THAT person that just loves the spa. I love the treatments, the environment....I am such a lush. Oh well. My tip: if you are pregnant or ever will be pregnant again, or aren't even pregnant at all: massage is the way to GO. There's just something about it...such an escape. So I was able to have an ahhhhh moment today. Which is good, because I had to deal with this right afterward:
As I understood it, my doctor's office is affiliated with two hospitals, and you have the freedom to choose where you want to deliver. This was implied to me during my entire pregnancy by not only my doctor, but other people in the office too. Well, as it turns out, that's not the case. SURPRISE.
I only found this out because I happened to mention in front of the OB rep that deals with billing that I would be using a certain hospital. She looks at me and says "Oh, we don't deliver there anymore." I'm sorry.....WHAT?! She asked me to come into her office and informed me that no, even though the website says that and even though I had been told otherwise, they only deliver at one certain hospital. I was so livid (in the godliest way possible). I am proud to say that I kept my cool and calmly left. Kurt decided to call, and he was told that if your insurance covers their main hospital, that's where you have to deliver. The other hospital is just for rare cases. Oh, really? Well it would've been lovely if I could've gotten some print-out or information packet or been TOLD that when I got pregnant. Nope. Didn't happen.
So, I had been planning for now 8 1/2 months to have a certain kind of delivery that was just what I wanted, with nurses I knew, at a certain hospital. And now I'm being told (at 35 weeks, no less) that they were just kidding; that can't happen. Seriously?!
However, I am viewing this as God's plan for us. He knew then and knows now where I need to deliver. We are going to use the hospital that my office prefers, because it's not worth losing our witness over. And I'm sure it will be a lovely delivery. I just don't look kindly upon unprofessionalism and being treated like a number, know what I mean? So that's always fun to deal with.
But, the bottom line is that somewhere, somehow, the baby will be born and we'll bring her to a happy home. This is where you just take the high road and move on.
That's life in a nutshell right now...have a great evening!
Edward Cullen, I love you.
