Delayed Launch

Mei-mei took her sweet time passing her biophysical profile today, but once again scored 10 out of 10.  It was pretty much the routine appointment we've become accustomed to, until the part when the doctor did A Bad Thing.

My cervix, which fortunately has been neither seen nor heard from since embryo transfer in November, had to be checked to see if it's favorable for induction on Thursday as planned.  OUCH!! It is most definitely not - it is long, not softened, and totally closed.  The doctor didn't think it was even a good idea to mess with it enough to try stripping the membranes.

Now we wait.  We'll go back again on Friday to see what my stubborn cervix is up to.  Really, what's a few more days when we've been waiting YEARS for this?  I have no desire to rush things and create problems, but I'm terribly anxious for this constant anxiety to end with Mei-mei in my arms alive!

I've been thinking about you and wondering how things are coming along! I can only imagine how anxious you are and how HOT! But you're right, a few days isn't that long to wait and I'm sure you'll make it despite the nerves. :)

a few days is nothing especially when she is still scoring a 10/10. My fingers and toes are crossed for smooth sailing.
take care

Way to go Mei Mei!!! Great job but you are a little stubborn sweetheart! LOL

I hope something happens soon so you can have her in your arms :)

It's enough to make you crazy, huh? I was 60% effaced and dilated to a 1 last week, and made absolutely NO progress this week. I'm starting to freak out a bit because with LJ, my c-section was for "failure to progress". Looks like both of us are in for a bit more anxiety before we're through!

I bet everything changes quickly and you'll be holding your little one very very soon! Thinking about you!
