Dialated a bit

Ok, not much...but 1cm and soft.
Abram is head down...
Having some contractions.
I walked around 3cm for 3 weeks before, so who knows;0)
They are all completely different for me!
I can tell you I am very excited!
Have been gaining 15# every month...and this past month didn't gain! HOORAY! (that was the goal)
Each month I would try and this past one...I said scr#w it...and ate whatever and didn't gain...:0)
He gets the hiccups and loves pushing on my hernia...which has increased in size.
Lots of trouble walking cause of my pelvis...acid reflux...ya know, the usual with us ladies:0)
Sorry I don't get on a ton...we have no power due to 90mph winds and our barn had a TON of damage...the horses are OK! We were in the basement...PRAYING. It sounded like a train our whole house was shaking...we lost roofing, wood, doors, windows, picnic table, flowers, trash cans, and a big maple...booo...
BUT, thankful all of us are OK and the animals!
I hope you are all OK! Praying for all the sweet babies that are coming!!!!

The visual is painful for me! Losing plants and barn pieces and a maple would really hurt. The sounds are frightening for sure. We have serious flooding every spring and that too has its worries...
hugs
May all go smoothly now. Biggrin

Glad to know you are ok! Thanks for keeping us updated. It's exciting being dilated. The doctor told me at my last check I was starting to dilate a bit! Will keep you in my thoughts!!

Glad everything is ok!! I am excited for all of you starting to dialate!! I have an ultrasound today and my next appt is 11 July but I havent even been checked (down there) yet this pregnancy since my very first appt... not that I care, I hate those type of appts - so akward but it would be nice to know if I am dailated or anything... I have BH on and off kind of alot but nothing too alarming and I am fairly certain the babies have dropped bc they are kicking REALLY low and I can even tell by looking at my stomach its dropped some and I am not even quite 32 weeks yet.

Glad everyone is OK! We've been having nasty storms here too. Knocked power out for a bunch of people around us. They are being told it will be about a week before it's all back up...I couldn't imagine! It's supposed to be upper 90's all week. We've got some friends staying at our house during the day (sleeping at their home though since it's OK at night).

My next week is my 36 GBS test and they will check dialation for the first time...here's hoping! If all the little painful twinges I have down there are anything to go by then I hope something is happening! Probably wishful thinking though.

This is the first time I'll be checked, too; but, that's not for another three weeks or so!

haha I always decline the check. I don't want to know lol. I do know that you can be 2cm dialated from a previous pregnancy though. I also know that with my first I was 3cm dialated at 38 weeks and my friend who was zero went before me lol, so I never use dialation as any indicator.

I'm so glad everyone is ok though after that storm, I heard there were some bad ones in the US. I have friends who's estimated power return date was July 6th. Insane!!

Had my almost 36 weeks check up today. Head down and in position it seems. Am 2cm dilated (but have had previous baby so that may not mean much) but am 40% effaced which my mom says is quite advanced (she is a maternity nurse). But I am pretty sure that I recall this being how things proceeded for me last time - I was dilated and effaced about 3-4 weeks before my due date and DS ended up coming 1 week early. (My labour was good last time so maybe the early efacement etc is going to help things along this time!). No weight gain for me vs 2 weeks ago (which is good as I am closing in on 200lbs now!!!). Blood pressure is being well controlled by blood pressure medications (same as last pregnancy).

9 more days of work for me. Then hopefully a week of mom & toddler time - I am thinking water park, sprinkler in back yard, swimming pool, and just hanging out - spending time together before we have to start sharing our attention between two kids.

Sigh - it has passed so fast! I am definitely uncomfortable and tired (have had a cold for 8 days and can't sleep with the peeing) - but I really want to relish/savour every uncomfortable moment - because it will be done too soon!

Good luck to everyone as the big days approach.
