Still at Work

I saw the doctor again this afternoon. She asked me if I've felt any contractions and I said that I haven't. Her response was, "Well that's not what I wanted to hear."

I am 2 cm dilated now and still 70% effaced. She estimates that Logan is going to be an average sized baby and that he weighs about 7 lb. 10 oz. right now. The doctor did strip my membrane at the appointment. That was not a comfortable feeling, but she said that I might actually start to feel a contraction now. We'll see.

I'm just glad that a human's gestation time isn't 3 years like an elephant's.

strip the membrane? I'm sure they used some highly specialized tool that looks like a chopstick or tongue depressor
