Went well. I'm almost at a 1, 10% effaced. Baby is "moving into position for birth" in other words she's LOW and I feel like she's trying to crawl out. Everything looked great. I asked about evening primrose and he kind of laughed lol. He said that he doesn't know if it works and when it does work he thinks it's usually a coincidence that you're body is ready at the same time. He did say I could try it if I wanted but I needed to wait until at least 37 weeks just in case it does work. He said there was no harm in trying. I am already progressed the same as I was at my 39 week induction with my son so I'm really hoping she will come between 37 and 39 weeks.
He wouldn't give me any hope though, he said its still possible that I go to term or after and still have a 16hr labor or I could progress nicely over the next couple
Of weeks. Time will tell!
Eek I'm sooo anxious!!
so exciting - you're getting really close!!! I weirdly look forward to my 36wk appt for the first cervical check just to find out progress...idk whether primrose helps, but if dr isn't concerned it could hurt sounds like it's worth trying!

I kind of look forward to them too. Lol
My doctor isn't too rough so I don't dread them.
I think I'm going to start doing squats and walking in the evening to try to move things along. I'm hoping I'm at a 3 next week! I'm 11 days away from 37 weeks!!
