And since your cervix is so ripe, it probably won't take much to make it happen, either.
I'm not having an internal until my due date & I'm trying to not expect going early to minimize my frustration. Even though I'm uncomfortable, I keep thinking that every day I have is another day to nap & do as I please. That attitude may change if my due date comes & goes though.
Hang in there, you are getting so close.

It's no fun going through this.
A while back I wrote something along the lines of "I hope I have some prodromal labor so I won't be in hard labor too long". Now, after actually having gone through prodromal land, I hope it never happens again. Being "part of the way there" really weighs on the mind.
I hope you go into labor soon but in the meantime, try and relax and maybe do something non-pregnancy related.
