I took my blood pressure today and it was still high and it was above the levels that my midwife wanted so I called her. I went in and they again are not too worried, but want me to go into labor really soon. So, they decided to check me again and do another stretch and sweep. It was the mother of all stretch and sweeps! They decided to manually dilate me more. With it done yesterday I went from barely a fingertip to a 2. Today I left stretched to a 5! I thought I was going to die! I am bleeding and cramping like I am on a regular period. They also sent me home with blue and black cohosh to take so I can get some stronger contractions to get me to efface more.

Thank you *kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!
