Last week I was 2-3 cm dilated and my cervix was a little thick. This week I'm 3-4 cm dilated and was told my cervix is still somewhat thick but my cervix is opening very nicely so the doctor says. She stripped my membranes which only caused me pain and pressure through the day and night. This morning more mucous plug came out but tinged with blood. I feel like I'll never have this baby. SO is terrified to have set with me. I am out of ways to get things going so it's really just the waiting game. The left pic was me last year with my daughter and the right is me this year with my baby boy. Look at how long he is hanging. I had my daughter at 38 weeks and 5 days.
