This may be more than some of you wanted to know, so beware.
I visited the midwife today and here are my current stats:
3 1/2 cm dilated
40% effaced
and the baby's head is at about -1. According to the midwife, about the lowest -1 you can get. I am not at all surprised to hear that. I am very excited for this baby to come so that I can have full blood flow to my legs again some day.
The only problem with knowing all this: I get my hopes up. I was dilated to a 3 for 3 weeks before Tayleigh was born. Hopefully, that won't be the case this time.

4 people think my kids are cute!:

Yeah!!! Have you done any of the wives' tales to induce labor? Planning a big party worked for me. Good luck!
