OB appointment today :)

OB appointment today Smile Everything went well and the c-section date remained the same Smile We went over precautions in regards to labor signs and what I need to tell the hospital etc. I was at a different doctor?s office hence a different weight scale but you wouldn?t believe my weight gain since last week. Usually it has been a pound a week for over a month or so BUT today it showed 6 lbs.. WHAT the heck Sad So crazy.. well I did have my 5 lbs shoes on today ..lol
Good news is that when she checked me I am now 1 cm dilated.. which the OB says is normal. I will be 37 weeks tomorrow so I didn?t know you dilate that early. Since this is technically my second pregnancy she said things may work a bit faster.. so we will see Smile I believe that she was referring to when I start my labor pains.

Anyone else dilate this early?

I also have the stupidest question to ask. She said she could put her figure u know where and touch his head.. Does that mean I have no mucus plug?

I am just so happy that my body is finally doing what it should.. I guess I still may have 2 more weeks though Sad I am so ready to meet my little man .. OH and to be rid of horrible HEARTBURN.. yuck

I have been dilated all 3 preg. To a 1-2 between 35 and 36 wks. I don't know about plug but I know from 36 wks on doc could feel #2's head. As for weight gain I would chalk it up to a diff scale and now worry about it. 2 wks will fly by Smile

Congrats on a great appointment! I haven't been checked for dilation yet, I think that's in 2 weeks for me, I'll be excited to see what's going on down there, lol!
