1/31 update

Here are today's stats:

BP: 110/74
baby's HR: 149 bpm
urine: "great" as always :p
dilation: still only 2 cm -- same as last week

The doctor stripped my membranes (now doesn't that sound pleasant?) in the hopes that it'll cause me to contract/go into labor on my own. She said something about it releasing prostaglandins. The effect of the membrane stripping only lasts 24 hours, though, so we'll see if it does anything if at all.

I have an appointment Tuesday for a non-stress test and an ultrasound, and my induction appointment is scheduled for 6 a.m. on Thursday, February 7.

For some reason the thought of all of this is making me unbearably sleepy -- I'm off to nap.
