During his check today this is how the conversation went:
Dr. R- So your going to feel some pressure....(followed by a very confused look as he keeps on with the exam)
Me: C'mon (bc of the look on his face) please tell me that the cervix is at least softened some...
Dr. R: Softened?? You're 5 Centimeters!!! and 70% effaced!
Of course, we both were very shocked! 5 Cm?? Wow! Thats half way there and i didn't even have to work for it! I did tell him that I was having braxtons every 20 minutes for the past week. To which he said, "well obviously they aren't just braxtons. They just aren't very painful, but they are working for you."
So now what? Im at home waiting. I did put on the Clary Sage oil on my belly and Im about to go lay down with the boys nap time and hopefully this evening we will have some work to do! And MAYBE we can be holding our little girl this weekend sometime.
Dr. R said, before he stripped my membranes "now if I do this it will certainly get things going. do you want to do it?" I obviously said yes! But then told him I wasn't going to listen to his prediction about it happening this weekend bc I didn't want to get my hopes up.
Too late! LOL.
