I don't post many threads, but my first scheduled cervical check seemed worthy of a new thread right?! lol
I went to L&D at about 31wks 5 days because of contractions. The nurse checked me and said I was high and closed (didn't mention effacement).
Today at 35wks 1 day I am 1.5cm dilated and 60% effaced. Doc said he felt the baby's head (he's been breech since 28 weeks so that was a relief). Then he did my GBS swab.
Then I got my ultrasound (they give them at every appt) and he confirmed that the baby is head down and measuring about 5.5lbs. I think he said the same weight at my last appt, but it doesn't surprise me. We all know u/s measurements are to be taken with a grain of salt, and my daughter was pretty petite (she was born 18.5in and 6lbs 13oz at 39wks 1 day). Also, at my 36wk appt with her (didn't have a 35wk one) I was only 50% effaced with no dilation. So YAY for that!
I know the checks are unnecessary at this point but I like having them done *for fun* - as long as my water isn't broken on accident lol. That would suck if it lead to an induction or CSection.
