So we had a follow up with our midwife yesterday to check on progress and fill us in on the plan going forward. Part of this appointment was going to be a procedure called The Sweep. I'll let you google that for the finer details. I excused myself from the room before the procedure started. Just seemed kind of wrong for me to be peering over the midwife's shoulder as she man-handled my wife's cervix. Besides, it would have been irresistible for me not to let loose some curling-type commentary through the procedure "SWEEP! HURRY! HURRY HARD! SWEEEEEEEEP!!!!!".
Anyways, the results of the procedure were quite promising. Things have been progressing. It's just a matter of time. We have an ultrasound scheduled for tomorrow to determine whether we need to speed things up a bit but we think Peanut won't need much external coaxing. When Peanut's ready, he or she will show up. Until then, we wait.
