39 weeks, 4 days

I had my midwife appointment this morning. I haven't dilated much more than last time. She said I'm about 1.5 cm, 50% effaced, and -1 station. We decided to not do the membrane sweep right now, as I'd rather be closer to 3 cm before we try that. Elaine agreed with that, said it's better to let my body do what it needs to on its own time. Besides, I have a feeling if we'd done the sweep today, with such little dilation, all I'd get out of it is some pain and cramps and no labor. So on to my massage this afternoon, and more waiting!

Update: My massage was wonderful as always. It's so nice to lay on that pregnancy pillow face down, and for an hour not feel the weight of my belly. She did some acupressure points for me, which was interesting. We'll see if it does anything!
