hahaha it's certainly not bad!!!! but it doesn't really "mean" anything, either.

ACTUALLY, what it does mean is that a membrane sweep is likely to be effective

He says.. Things look GREAT! You're doing it... Then gave me a high 5 lol

He said by next week IF I'm still pregnant he will do the membrane sweep but for the remainder of the week I will be on my own to start things up.

Haha true
I just never expected that at my doctors office.
I feel pretty good about my appointment.
My cervix was thick last time. No thinning of anything. So I'll take the 80%

I agree with Rhea, with my first DD I was 3 cm dilated for 3 weeks, until I got a sweep and then went into labor the same day You're definitely making progress so hopefully you won't have a very difficult labor!

2-3 and 80% is very good! You're ahead of me, last I was checked, I was 3cm and only 50% effaced. Darn you!

The effacement is how thin your cervix is (goes up to 100% when you're all ready to go), and the cm measurement is how big the opening of the cervix is. You have to go to 10, so you have a good start on that

Okay..
I figured 80% seemed like a high number so I was.pleased.

But what got me happy was the membrand sweep will be done May 7th if I make it to my next appointment.

Well it's 8:05 pm my time on 4/30, so I think it's safe to say I'm definitely getting a May baby, which I'm thrilled about! I was hoping my body would hold off - I didn't think it would! My due date is this Saturday, May 4.

I'm seriously thinking about it! My OB checkup is tomorrow, a few days before 40 weeks. I feel like I'm ready to go and that my body is doing lots of false starts...so I'm hopeful that if I did get it, that it would work! I'm nervous that it would be really uncomfortable. No pain, no gain, I guess, eh?

Well....I talked to my doula tonight and she said that unless I have a strong feeling that I should get my membranes stripped, that it's better to wait for your body to go into labor on its own. She said when you force the issue when your body isn't quite ready, it can cause labor to be longer and/or more painful than if you had just left well enough alone and let it do its thing and prepare. So....I decided I'm going to wait. *sigh* I hope he decides he's ready soon!
