yep gave in and got checked today....my due date. NOt a bit dilated and she said "maybe" a little bit effaced. I think the maybe was just so she didn't have to say "and not even effaced" because that would make it seem pretty bleak! Oh well. I wasn't really surprised as I don't tend to dilate until in labor but thought just maybe this time. Looks like I just might have quite a ways to go like usual. Her check really did make me feel very achy crampy icky and have pretty hard spotting so maybe she stirred things up enough to get some progress going.
