We had another appointment today and I was really surprised with how fast my doctor wanted to get everything going! She came in and right away asked if I wanted her to strip my membranes. Besides not really knowing what that meant, it also sounds really gross so I asked what she was talking about. She explained it (it's basically detaching the 'sack of waters' away from the uterus so it brings labor on faster.) and I told her I wasn't sure. She said "Well, do you want to have your baby today or tomorrow?" Of course I thought about my last post where I was like-I REALLY want her to come on the 16!!! But when it could REALLY happen...I got really scared and told her I didn't know. I was really thinking about my mom coming up (Not until Nov 1) and I don't really want the baby to already be a few weeks old by then. I want her to be closer to brand new. So, because I took too long to think all this out, she stripped the partially. It didn't feel good.
Final outcome...The baby could come ANYTIME now. I'm dilated to a 3 and 60% effaced. (Apparently last week I was 50% effaced but the dr never told me that...Oh well) We have another appointment next Tuesday where she will fully strip my membranes...Unless, of course, the baby is already here. Which she kinda made me feel like will be the case. We'll see!
Embarrassing story... The dr told us she could feel the baby's head. I got super excited and asked, "Can you feel any hair?!?!" She was like....No....because the baby is in a bag. Then she and Cody (lovingly) laughed at me. A lot. :)
Oh well. I was excited she might have hair!
Now I'm just sitting around (my feet have become super super swollen since like yesterday...don't really know why), eating oreo's and getting ready to be a mom! I got a pedicure yesterday, so I'm all set there! Maybe I'll take a bath. Ahhhh that sounds relaxing. I'm all about this having a baby stuff :)
