The Waiting Game

No induction for us! Baby Burns is measuring at about 7 lbs and looks great. He or she has started to descend (I knew it!) but I'm still only 1 cm, 30 % effaced. I told him how miserable I've been the past week and he suggested stripping my membranes at the next visit. I couldn't help but blurt out "Can we do that today?" lol. Physically, I am so ready. Emotionally, I'd love another few weeks of being pregnant. I just have to get through school for a few days next week. My appointment is Thursday. I see lots of baths and heating pads in my future! Now I'm off to Google everything I can about membrane stripping.
