Sorry for the delay--all is well here.
first, go send love to a very scared Mo-- she deserves a fear free ride, but is not being allowed that yet.

So in this neck of the woods, the baby looks great on ultrasound (biophysical profile) with adequate fluid-- 8lbs+ already. Yowza.
And my cervix was checked which really and truly sucked ass- almost not able to stand it-- only a finger dilated and very soft. Baby quite high still as of that moment. And spotting ever since (as expected).

"They" say that the cervix check can sometimes urge things along-- but nothing is a given except I really don't think they'll let me go too long. I sure would like to avoid induction. We go back monday for all the same fun unless by some miracle I deliver this weekend.

Might post again later when I can think-- right now just hungry and tired.

Whew-- glad to hear that all is well. Sometimes when they do that check they strip your membranes (often without telling you) because it's supposed to speed things along, but it sure hurts like heck and despite having mine (unbeknownst to me until I howled with pain) stripped, I didn't go into labor for several days. Did you ask about evening primrose oil? Hugs and high hopes that you're able to fend off induction.

Here's hoping your little on makes his/her entrance in their own time (which really ought to be this weekend!)

sorry the check was so uncomfortable, but do hope it helps things get moving. and thank you for all of your thoughts sent our way, Kate. they mean so much.

8+ pounds does seem to make for an easier baby, even if the delivery itself is less fun. Here's hoping for healthy, happy (huge!) baby & easy-peasy delivery! YOU ARE SO CLOSE1111

It does sound like your membranes were stripped. It didn't do much to help me go into labour, but colleagues who had it done or whose wives had it done (and said it was the worst pain ever) said that they went into labour within 24h.
Good luck!
