So, after my midwife appointment on Thursday (postponed first from Tuesday to Wednesday for a birth and then from Wednesday to Thursday for ANOTHER birth) and an internal exam telling me I was 3cms dilated, about 80% effaced and that my cervix was ripe and mushy... I had some bloody show, and then woke up this morning with mild contractions for about four hours... then they stalled out, but started up again tonight a few hours ago. OWIE! They are still mild-ish, but getting stronger and stronger to where I can't sleep anymore (I tried) and I have had more spotting throughout the evening.
I am up watching TV and the midwife is expecting my call to have her come out at some point tonight. I don't know when I will call her (and my labor coach friend) yet, but for now I am enjoying my last few moments of solitude for the next few years. WooHoo! At over two weeks past due (almost three actually), I am READY. I will remember this in a few hours when I am screaming through transition, I hope. Here comes another one... whew.
