The midwife told me that today. I asked Catch if it was a turn on to know that her wife has good pelvic bone structure.
I was also complimented on my flexibility and told (again) that I have a high tolerance for pain.
These midwives… They sure do know how to flatter their overdue pregnant women.
The latest news from the stirrups is that I am now 4 cm dilated. She went in for membrane sweep #3, so I’m hoping she has magic hands and this one actually gets us somewhere. She could feel the bag of waters, and also mentioned that baby’s head is stationed at a -2 and that I will have some serious pushing to do. She was very hopeful that things will get started on their own shortly, BUT…
We are scheduled for induction on Friday just in case! Phew. Friday I can handle. That’ll be 41 weeks. Much more reasonable than 42.
Don’t get me wrong–I would MUCH rather not need to be induced. It just feels so much better to know that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. It turns out that I won’t be pregnant forever! Who knew?!
Fingers crossed that the midwife’s magic hands get the ball rolling. Think contraction-y thoughts, folks!
