Making Progress!

I went to the dr. this morning, and I am a finger tip dilated and 80% effaced. This just means she is making her way! Glad to know my cervix is cooperating :) The dr. said if I haven't had her by next Monday that he will strip my membranes if I want him to (ouch!). Has anyone had this done, and did it speed things up at all?

I can honestly say that is one thing I have never had done. Sorry.

So glad Kate is cooperating! I can not wait to meet her. I will spoil her.

Love you!!

hey!!! i have not been a good commenter... but i have been checking on you to see if kate has arrived!
i know you are getting anxious!

i had c-sections with both of my boys, so i didn't have my membranes stripped - but i thought that was the doctor term for 'break your water'! so i would think that would speed things along!!!!
you are the nurse, so i may be TOTALLY wrong!!

Hey Amanda! I hsd my membranes stripped at the dr's office on a Tuesday afternoon...on Wednesday morning at 3:00am my water broke. So, yeah, I would say it speeds things along.

Good luck!

Can't wait to see pictures of Kate!

Have sex! It does the same thing. The semen like attacks your cervix! We did that and I had Claire a day later!
