…my cervix!Â It’s still posterior and showing no signs of progress.Â I had an prenatal appointment today and had high hopes for an uncomfortable, yet productive, sweeping of the membranes, but the doctor said there’s no point and it would just cause a lot of pain with no results.Â Boo!Â I was certain that things were starting to get moving since I’ve had a lot of crampy contractions and loose stools for the past three days.Â Alas, the ol’ cervix is still unripe and unwilling.
I know I am only officially one day overdue, but I feel as though I’ve earned the right to be a total bag about it.Â “When are you due?”Â asks an innocent bystander.
“Yesterday!!” I hiss and belly-bump him to the pavement.
Not really.Â I am feeling OK and trying to take it one day at a time, because that’s totally not cliche.Â Yesterday I took Avelyn to the mall and she was a gem.Â We shared a vanilla bean frappuccino and looked at pretty necklaces from the dollar store.Â I know my time with her as an only child is limited so we are trying to make the most of it.
Stay tuned for further details on the state of my cervix!Â Hopefully, as in “it’s at 10 cm and I can see the head and Steve is live-blogging it for me!”
