I survived another drive to St Louis and met with the Dr. Same old, same old stuff. I dilated a little bit more but still at a 1 (1 and 3/4 now), effaced 75-80%. She went ahead and did a membrane sweep... YOWSERS! That was a little more intense than I had planned for. She said she thought it took well and I should hopefully start having contractions in the next 3 days to get things rolling. She said she doesn't plan to see me next week at our scheduled appt, but in the hospital. Of course, no promises. I had a few contractions already but just VERY crampy. I'm hoping this will get the ball rolling and meet our little girl soon!
