I had another doctor’s appointment today. She was able to touch the baby’s head this time. And things weren’t as painful as last week. I was thankful for that, but a little bummed that I wasn’t more dilated this week. I was just over 1 cm or so.
I am 38 weeks along now and I asked if she would do anything to help my labor progress. She said she wouldn’t do anything at 38 weeks, but next week, she’ll do everything she can to help me along. Hopefully I won’t make it until my next appointment, but it’s good to know that she’ll do her best to help things progress at that point if I don’t have Thumper before then. If what she does works, it should happen within a day or two. So we’ll see how that goes!
