I saw the midwife today, and it was nice to hear that all those contractions have not been in vain. I'm at least 4 cm dilated now and the baby's head is extremely low...so low that the midwife could hardly believe it. I had an hour-long appointment as we had several things to discuss and decisions to make.
We have a plan in place now that my husband and I feel good about. I know you all are curious as to what the plan is, but I'll just say that it definitely will not be long now (...as in a few days max.)
Next time you hear from me, it will hopefully be with our good news.
Prayers for a safe delivery are always welcome :-)
