Quick Update

Report from the doctor appointment this week:

2 big contractions, 2 small ones during the 20 minute non-stress test
2 centimeters dilated
70% effaced
- 2 station

I don't know what all this means exactly, but it's reassuring to know I've finally made progress. The doctor also stripped my membranes without telling me what she was doing, and it was surprisingly painful, but will hopefully help things along. Fingers crossed. I think I've had one or two contractions since leaving the office. The doctor said we'll have a baby by Monday. I'm hoping for much sooner.

Ack Stripping Membranes DOES sound painful! Hopefully your wee one will be here SOON! Good luck!

OUCH, stripping membranes? What membranes? I guess I managed to avoid that particular unpleasantness. Well, hopefully it'll move things along. I'll be waiting for an update!

Whatever stripping membranes is, I DO NOT want to know. Somethings about pregnancy and childbirth should be kept secret from us not-yet-ready-to-conceive women, for the good of the species.
