So I had my appt today at the BC and had the fun "stretch and sweep". Good news is the Castor oil got me to 5 cm!

But, nothing is happening!!! I think it's going to be Saturday. Erik's (DH) birthday is Saturday, we'll see. I go tomorrow and do the cervadil thing, hopefully that gets things going! I'm so over this!!!

YAY! You're half way there at least. Hopefully this means you will have a quick labor and delivery!

hopefully being that far already will make your labor go very quickly. I really hope it happens sooner rather than later!! I swore my DD would be born on my step-dad's b-day out of spite (cause I didn't want her to share his birthday) and I was right. So if that's true, just think, could be less than 48 hours from now!!

Your post title made me giggle. 5cm is good....I really don't think it'll be long now. And when it starts, just think....you've only got 5 more to go!

Being half way there is what is keeping me sane at this point. At least I know my uterus isn't broken and it can get this baby out!
I was seriously starting to wonder!
