slowly but surely...

Slowly but surely I am going to have this baby. Just got back from our 38 week appointment and I am still 1 cm dilated but am now 50% effaced and my cervix is soft. The baby has made his way down to -2 station. The midwife said that last week they had an arrow up for the baby's station which meant that his head was still high. No wonder I have felt more pressure on everything this last week, it is only going to get worse. 

Everyone keeps telling me that when they do a cervical check that it is painful. I enter into hypnosis right before each check and I gotta say I don't feel anything while she is checking me. My midwife says "I know lots of pressure right now" and I just smile cause I don't feel it. Maybe it is the hypnosis, I think it actually does work. 

I am okay with making it to my due date but I don't want to go much further past it cause my sister comes into town on the 25th and I would like to already be home when she gets here. I know, I know it is not up to me but I hope your listening Baby P...

3 lovely notes from friends:

Wow you're so close!! I've loved following your journey to become a mama. I was 41 weeks when I delivered so patience is a must when waiting for baby to arrive. I know, easier said than done. :)

Slow and steady wins the race, right? :) Good luck, sweetie! You are almost to the finish line. :)

SO exciting! Yeah, I've heard that about the cervical checks too. I'm impressed that the hypnosis is working so well already! Let me know (after the birth, of course) if you are interested in selling me your kit! ;)
