OK, time for the weekly cervical update! I just got back from my regular doctor’s appointment, and was told that I’m 50% effaced and about 1 cm dilated. I’m 39 weeks along today, but it could still be a while. Standard procedure is to schedule an induction at 39 weeks, but to hope that we don’t have to do that. I *really* want to avoid an induction, so I think we’ll schedule it for right at 42 weeks. I’ll be pretty uncomfortable, but I want to trust the millions of years of evolution and billions of women who have come before me in letting my body take the lead on this.

And here’s the new baby blanket that I cast on for last week – much improved!
