Could this be it?

This better be it! I went to Dr. Damore today. I was 3 and 1/2 centimeters and 80% effaced. We decided to strip my membranes to see if we could get things going. She was able to stretch me to 4 centimeters.
The stripping of my membranes was not pleasant but I'm hoping this will get things started. I'm having cramps and a lot of soreness in my lower pelvis area on my tail bone. This better be the beginning! I want to be done and see my little Max.
Usually if the stripping of the membranes works it will be within 24 hours. I'm really optimistic about this. If Max doesn't come because of all this then I don't know if he will ever come! Seriously, I seem to be all ready.
Dr. Damore also said Max was even lower! So things have got to start. I'm hoping! I don't want to have this soreness for nothing! Come on Max!! I promise I'll be nice to you when you come out! Wishing for a baby birthday of April 10th!! But trying not to get too excited just in case:)
