Due date, take deux

Yeah, did you notice that Strawberry changed all our tickers to make today our due date?  It makes us feel better since today would be the due date based on conception.

Yesterday’s midwife appointment included another cervical check and a vigorous stretch and sweep, which is about as much fun as it sounds.  It did however bring on some cramping and some bloody show through the evening and night.  Actual sleep is a thing of distant memory for me and I suspect it will be many more months until I rediscover it.

Everything checked out fine, urine, weight, BP, heartbeat, fundal height (40 weeks).  The cervical check revealed that I am 3.5 cm dilated but the midwife could easily stretch me to 5 cm.  She was feeling the top of Cupcake’s head as he wiggled it against her fingers.  She could actually feel his fontanels!  We were sent on our way with a referral for the back-up OB to get a bio-physical profile on Friday, but also with well wishes that we would go into labor before then.  We certainly hope so!
