Holy crap on a cracker......

I had my routine appointment yesterday and of course, my platelets fell again.  So the midwife chatted with the doctor and they decided to check my cervix to see if I was "ripe" at all (DH cracks up everytime they use the word ripe about my cervix haha.)  So the midwife is like, ok we're going to check you.....now put your fists under your hips to hold yourself up and she's like, "ok you're going to feel this."  Umm that was an understatement, I actually swore and said "holy shit" haha.  The Midwife actually dilated me to 1 cm on her own.  Yes....just let that thought sink in....LOL!  But anyway, they are having me go back on Friday morning and if I'm to at least 3 cm, they are going to induce me on Friday evening!  Isn't that crazy?!  There is a possibility I could be a mom by the weekend!  YIKES! haha

Thanks Ladies!!


I called the office today because I had some bleeding that I wasn't expecting and to quote the midwife I talked too, she said "yeah Sue said she did a number on your cervix yesterday so I'd expect that type of bleeding."  haha Gee thanks.

Oww!  I winced just reading that!  Sounds like your docs are really on top of things which is good--you must be doing all that last minute "prep" stuff to get ready for it all knowing that in just a few days your whole world is going to change...for the better :)

How exciting that you could be holding your little bundle of joy by this weekend! eek! 


I only made it to 1 cervix check before giving birth and I remember the extreme discomfort! I'm glad I only had to go through one of those!
