Do you really want to know!?

I've deferred uni til next semester. 

I'm finally 40 weeks pregnant!! It's just a waiting game now!

I had an appointment today - here's what happened: (CAREFUL, this could get graphic!)
I had the appt, and I asked "What do you normally do at this appointment" to which she told me that they offer an internal exam and a stretch and sweep, and did I want one. YEP!  Very happy  Baby's heart rate is 138, my BP 112/55 (bit low if you ask me, but right on par!) Internal and s&S were done and the midwife looked very pleased! I am effacing (and you know, I have no idea what that means - even after the midwife and my student midwife explained it to me). Apparently the cervix is 2cm thick, and I'm down to 1cm. Not dilated (which is what I was reeeaaalllly hoping for!) Midwife could feel the baby's head. Baby is still 3/5th engaged. Baby, though, is apparently "OP" (their technical term). When I asked what that meant, I was told it was posterior. Apparently not favourable (is the word my student used), but still good as head is down. I think it means that baby's head is facing the front, not the back. I think.

If it doesn't rain tonight when Andrew gets home, we're going to have dinner and go for a walk. Fingers crossed that does something, coz I've got a little bit of period pain since the S&S.

I'm booked in to see the doctor next Thursday to talk about induction if I don't go into labour naturally. Hopefully, it happens tonight! That would be awesome!
