Baby Brother - 37 weeks

Had an appointment today and things are looking even better for the induction next week!  Baby is still head down and had moved even further down.  I am dilated 2.5 - 3cm and 60% effaced.  This is more than I have ever been dilated - even further along in the other pregnancies!!  I always go into the hospital at about a 1, so we were really pleased to hear this!  Not much other news other than to say I've been having quite a lot of contractions since she stripped my membranes this morning.  I don't think it will amount to anything (as they aren't regular), but will hopefully help me dilate even more before next week.  So thankful for the progress!!  One more week of pregnancy!  :)

And I've been sooooo lazy about posting pictures, etc. lately.  Hopefully I can post some of the girls' new haircuts later today.  I need to get the camera out and let the world see just how sweet they are.  ;)

"stripped my membranes"? yikes. what does this mean?

Sounds a lot scarier than what it actually is. During a cervical check, they just separate the amniotic sac from the uterus (I think) and it is supposed to help with induction of labor. Not a big deal. Barely felt it. ;)
