Cervical Dilation part 2

So I had my check up today. The results were not so dramatic. I'm a "finger's worth" dilated (as opposed to a "finger tip"), although my cervix is "favorable" which means that if they induced me, I would likely have no problems going into labor. Yay me? So I guess I'll keep having sex and taking my Evening Primrose Oil and see if it helps... any... or not. The baby is also still not engaged, although he's in a good position for delivery.

Basically, what it sounded like, is that my body and the baby are ready for delivery, but there are no signs that labor is iminent. (wahhhhh) My Dr. suggested writing baby an eviction notice. I think I will.

Dear Baby,
You are of course loved and cherished... However, you're really fucking big. I think it's safe to say you're speedily outgrowing your current lodgings. I know you're uncomfortable as well because you keep ramming your head into my cervix and trying to kick my bladder out of my body. It's not going to get any less crowded in there, so I suggest you come out. Trust me, there's much more room out here, plus it's more interesting. I'd like to look in the eye the person responsible for my many months of panic, discomfort, eager anticipation, and increasing impatience. My Dr. will want to induce me a week after my due date, and I'd rather avoid that if at all possible. Basically, you have until your due date to GET OUT OF ME, otherwise I will have to take measures into my own hands. Thank you for your cooperation.


  1. How far along are you? At 39w1d I got a DEEP massage on the pressure points of my ankles. My water broke the next day =) I'd only recommend it for someone over 39 weeks.
