Who would have guessed?!?!?

So - since this is my 3rd pregnancy you would think I would know the signs of labor or what it is like to go into labor, BUT for those of you that know me - you know that my body sucks and really doesn't know how to be a woman! In my previous pregnancies I was neither dialated or effaced prior to induction at full-term.

SO - low and behold, at my 36 week appt. I was 1 cm. dialated!!?! I was super excited for about 3.5 seconds until the OB said, "Let's see if we can stretchhhhhhhhhhhh your cervix a little more to get things rolling."

Well, at least that I is what I think she said.

My mind computed this as "Let's see if we can stret.... OWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW WTF IS SHE DOING IN MY CROTCH?!?!??!"
People should warn you before they stretch ANYTHING on your body!

So who knows - I may actually have this baby without an induction (not that I am holding my breath!) I go back again on Tuesday (May 6th) to see if the stretching aka ripping my body in half worked or not. It better have worked dammit!

For those of you who have no idea what dialation is - here is a chart*.

*Not my actual Crotch!
