Pins and Needles

I know that's what you've been waiting on for me to post about my appointment today.

Here's the scoop:

I wore a black shirt today......just in case.

Happy to report everything that went in the cup stayed there and did not try and decorate any other surfaces. Wahoo!

For the past few weeks a midwife in training has been doing the internal exams. Today my midwife did it.

I am 3cm and 40% effaced. Apparently the midwife in training is very generous with her measurements :P Hence the 70% effacement last week.

But at least I'm at 3cm

My midwife told me, "I am going to do a VERY aggressive check on you today to see if we can't get things moving along"

Boy did she ever!!!!!

He is still very high -2 station. But here's to hoping things get moving.

I'm still betting I'll make it to my due date.
