Everything is "completely normal." Yes, that's a direct quote. My appointment was oddly reassuring. I am 1.5 cm dilated, and "nice and soft" up there. The baby is fully engaged now, which I was very pleased to hear. My next appointment is on my due date, June 6. Hopefully I won't be able to make it!
I am trying to stay chill & patient. It gets a little tough when Dh calls in the middle of the day to ask if I'm having contractions. Ha ha Apparently some of his female coworkers have been sharing their tips of what worked for them:
- do squats until your water breaks (no thanks)
- orgasm (yes, please)
The baby partied for an hour last night and I just enjoyed it. I don't know how much longer I'll get to feel her kicks and squirms in quite this way.
