Well went to my midwife this afternoon for routine check and she genarally asked how i was, so i told her about all this back ache and period pains etc i was having over the last few days. So she gave me an internal- i am 1cm dilated, my cervix is really soft and is only 1cm thick, so it has started thinning as well. While she was in there she gave me a sweep and told me she could feel the baby's head!! ah bless and put it was ceph-3???????? (haven't a clue) So things are on the right track and she told me doesn't think i will need the appointment next week but booked one just in case Also she is the midwife who delivered Amy and as of tomorrow she is on delivery suite for 2 weeks, so she will no doubt deliver this baby, i am sooooo pleased.
