  • I'm now 3 1/2 cm dilated and gained 3 lbs of water weight in my feet and ankles
     
    I had him strip my membranes while he was checking. We'll see if that works! BP was up a little in the 130's over something. She actually checked it twice just to make sure.

    Otherwise I go back next week! I've got everything ready! I tied up all my loose ends yesterday like going to the DMV and renewing my license! Luckily it was a gross rainy day and no one else was there, so there was no waiting. Today there is several inches of snow! The streets were clear luckily!

  • I hope stripping the membranes get you started. I can not believe that you are 3 1/2 cm and still not in active labor. That amazes me!

    Crazy isn't it? I was 3 cm when I showed up at the hospital in active labor with Nicole! I plan on leaving at the first true contraction again this time
     
    I don't dare take the chance and deliver in my van

    I walked in to be induced at 6cm and wasn't in active labor!
     


    I hope everything goes great Laura!
