Just got back from the MW

Just got back from the MW and she says I'm still pregnant (really?!?) 30 weeks now and she says I really need to go another 4-6 but she doubts I will...for now all we can do is rest and wait and watch.

The thing that I got a kick out of is that we were talking about outcomes for preemies and she said that white males (what I'm having) have the worst time as preemies because they just "won't" do what they need to do to get healthy. She said they affectionately refer to them as "wimpy white boys" in the NICU. Black females have the best outcomes and fight the hardest and recover the quickest. Hope nobody finds that offensive, just with all the "d"h troubles in the air lately, I got a funny image in my mind of my husband, 30 years old, laying in the NICU letting a nurse take care of him because he just refuses to grow the surfactant on his lungs so he can get out in the world on his own. OK, that probably is offensive, sorry...
