Default 39 week appt

I just got home. I'm now at a 4 cm dilation and 80% effaced. Everything else is looking good! He stripped my membranes again. I swear he went up to his elbow! Luckily it doesn't hurt, but boy is that a ton of pressure. He's on call at the hospital tonight and said if the contractions pick up again tonight (like they have every single night for 3 weeks!) to come in for monitoring and he might give me a little push and keep me there unofficially. Otherwise officially I'm on the induction list for tomorrow, but I'm #7 on the list! 3 c-sections and 3 people being induced are before me. He said there is a chance that they won't be able to do anything tomorrow as I'm so far down, but its a total wait and see sort of game. I'm really hoping that as his eviction papers have been signed that Everett will decide to come on his own this evening!

This exact thing is what my mom did with my brother (her 3rd). Tons of contractions for weeks with very slow progression. She ended up crowning with him in the shower and had no idea she was in real labor! I'd rather not do that!

Good luck. Joseph did that. We kept going in and getting little pushes and nudges from the midwife and finally they worked. He was delivered on his due date so I guess he's just very prompt. She was going to send me in for induction if I hadn't made any progress by the end of that week. Joseph decided he didn't need that much urging.
I can't believe he's almost 3 months old!!
