Doctors Update: Well this should be my very last weekly update...I went to the doctor on Tuesday the 18th and doctor checked the cervix.  I'm still 1 cm dilated and he actually did a little procedure called "stripping the membranes."  Basically, it is just a way for them to try and release a hormone that will help bring contractions and labor signs on naturally.   If I don't go into labor on my own this week, he will see me on Monday morning and then probably admit me Monday or Tuesday night to be induced.
