Just got back from mw appt, last week I was upset b/c I was having ALL the symptoms I had the day I went into labour with ds but I was only 2-3cm (and this is not uncommon for 2nd baby....I walked around 2-3cm for weeks with ds and that was first baby).
so last week 2-3cm, cervix pointing back and cervix was "half" soft so I guess that's 50%effaced?
Today cervix down, soft as butter and guess what.....7CM!!!!!
mw called the mw that's on-call this week and said when I page she's gotta get to hospital right away
woo.........even though I could still go until Mondays induction (unlikely but still) it should be that I barely need anything to get me fully there

Holy moly! You're 7CM and still not in active labor?? Sounds like you will be at any minute. Good luck!!!
I officially hate you.... lol!!! No, no, no, just kidding I WISH I could walk around at 7 cm. I was in what I would consider active labor (i.e. up all night not able to sleep or get comfortable, ctx stopping me) with DS and was only 2 cm and 50% effaced. Then it went on and on and on and on... from there! GL mama, you are soooooooo close!!

Wow! You are nearly there and not even in active labor yet. WTG with your amazing cervix, that is awesome! Hopefully you don't have a long way to travel to get to the hospital once labor kicks in.

I do live close to hospital (10min drive) however I'm the only driver in the house sigh. I have a friend who luckily works from home Thur/Fri who I can call, he lives 10min away so tops I could be there in 20min. I could take a cab or I can call my parents (but they are 30-40min away so looking at close to an hour
