Tuesday July 9th:
I had a prenatal visit with Dr Lawrence. He told us that I was almost completely effaced and almost 2 cm dilated. Another big improvement from the week before. He also said that the baby was in the perfect position for birth. I believe he called me "ripe". He scraped my cervix membrane to release a hormone that might help speed up labor. He also discussed the possibility of inducing labor on Tuesday the 16th or Thursday the 18th. I was not a big fan of the idea of inducing labor, especially before my due date of the 19th. I knew the baby would come when he/she was ready. Little did I know that would be the very next day!
