38 week 5 day appointment

We went to the doctor today (I was secretly hoping we wouldn't have made it this far). Anyways, I am 3CM dilated, 80% effaced and Brooke has dropped to the -1 station. WOO HOO! All these contractions are actually doing some good. We contemplated getting induced this weekend, however, we are making progress and the doctor said to come in on Monday and he will strip my membranes. OUCH! That basically means he is going to pull the plug that is keeping Brooke in. Once he does that, things should really get going. If I can go into labor on my own, it will be much less painful than getting induced, so we will keep our fingers crossed.
