Today's Appt

Well, I was back down 2 lbs, which was kinda nice to hear. She finally did a cervical check, and now I wish I hadn't heard. Barely effacing and no dilation. URGH!!!! On a good note (I suppose) he's dropped even lower and she can feel his head full engaged and grinding down. So here's hoping something happens soon. I know not to let the dilation get to me because you could walk around for a month at 3cm or go from 0-10 within hours, but it's still depressing to hear when with everything you're feeling makes you think something must be happening.

I hear you but I think once things happen, they will happen - if you know what I mean... I also had a cervial check today for the first time... it was uncomfortable as heck let me just say. But watch you will be the next one to go into labor Wink

I totally understand when you feel like you've made progress and you haven't but it will all be over soon enough!

I'm sorry, Rachel. But really, just like you said, it means nothing. I've been dilated to 1cm for weeks, now, and nothing's happening... I wish it would, but it's not. lol

The fact that your baby is riding low, though, makes a big difference! That pressure from his head can dilate you fast once it all starts! Try to stay positive, hon!!

That's why I'm not getting cervical checks this pregnancy! Saves the aggrivation. With DS I was at 9cm for 10 hours. I was at 9cm at 9pm, then my water broke at 10:30pm and that took be back down to 8cm! then I got back to 9cm and stayed there until I was finally 10cm and ready to push at 7:20am! Oy!
I'd rather not know and just work with my body. I think knowing my dilation discouraged me most. Because I kept thinking "I'm so close" and then another hour would go by...

Hopefully you're one of those 0-10 in a few short hours kind of women! That would be nice!
