Today I went for another check-up. Everything was fine. But (standard procedure at 41 weeks) the midwife told me to set up appointment in the hospital for Thursday. They're going to do a CTG and ultrasound to make sure that everything is ok with baby, placenta and amniotic fluid. If things go well (the midwife expected them to) they will probably strip my membranes on Friday. That might jumpstart the contractions. If it doesn't work, they'll try that again on Sunday. If I haven't delivered by Monday night, I have to go to the hospital on Tuesday to be induced. But I really hope that won't be necessary, because I really want that homebirth!
