A week of annoying contractions has not done much to bring this baby nearer. I am now offically 1 cm dialated at the top of the cervix. The lower part is 3-4cm, but even though the cervix is still thick, it is very soft.
The midwife expects that I will see her again next wensday. However, she warned that labor can go very fast with somebody who has had as many children as me.
