Went to my 39 week appointment on Friday. My midwife and I talked and decided to have her strip my membranes. With my last pregnancy she stripped them at 39 weeks and I went into labor the next night. Also at my appt. she checked me and baby is still head down and dropped and deep/low. I was 1 centimeter dilated the last two weeks and at this appt. I was 2 1/2 centimeters dilated, 70% effaced and soft. So some good progress made in the last week with all the Braxton hicks I have been having.
I lost more of my mucous plug yesterday morning and it was tinted red so I knew that meant things were happening. I had two painful contractions yesterday morning and then nothing again until afternoon. I had several from 4pm until I went to bed at 9pm. I woke up around 1am this morning with more painful contractions even though they have been sporadic. Finally got out of bed around 3:45am cause they were about 10-13 minutes apart and now they have slowed down again. I hope things pick up cause today would be a great day to have a baby.
How are things going now, Kimia? It's been about 12 hours since your post. Baby here, or on the way? Or is she hanging out to wait for BIL to leave?
70% of the U.S. population now lives in a state where same-sex marriage is legal. At 36 and counting!
wondering how you are doing? Hopefully baby is here and you're busy!
