Visited with the BDM today. Since last week, Rae has dropped a couple of pounds (nothing drastic – don't worry) and has "thinned out" and dialated a bit more. (Sorry – more cervix speak.)
BDM says everything is going as it should – and thinks Rae will deliver sometime next week. Right on schedule.
Meanwhile the contractions continue ... we'll see if mass quantities of Turkey have any affect.
