I am dilated to 2 and 50% effaced. The baby has dropped even further and the during the exam today the doctor said she could feel his head. My blood pressure was up today, though not dangerously so, just at the higher end of "normal." (I usually sit at 117/65, and today it was 128/80) The doc scheduled another appointment for Monday morning but closed our appointment today with, "I probably see you this weekend."
I'm both jumping for joy and filled with abject terror. how is it that I can still be afraid of this process after having done it three times?Easy, pain sucks; and even though I know this pain is temporary, it is still a very intense few hours of pretty sucky awfulness.
Anyway, I don't know when this is going to happen but I've got the text posting working on my phone and so I'll post after he arrives, hopefully with a picture. Any of my readers who use the google reader thing, I may monkey around with text posting pictures to see if I'll be able to share pictures with the news, so I apologize in advance for any wired, short posts with odd photos of myself.
