9:00pm Tuesday evening. Saw the midwife earlier. I had an appointment for this afternoon, but the midwife was busy delivering a baby (not mine unfortunately), so they changed my appointment to this evening. She did another membrane sweep and said that I am now 5cm dilated and 80% effaced, and also said that the baby is not quite centered on my cervix and that may be part of the problem. The baby isn't putting a good pressure on my cervix. So after my membranes were violently stirred around, the midwife had me walk briskly around the building for a half an hour, using the stairs and wheel chair ramps. She checked me again and said that the baby was now nicely centered. She sent me home and here I am.. hoping to be in labor when I wake up in the morning. They said that if I don't deliver this weekend they are going to have to send me to the OB. Sigh.. stay tuned.
