An "easy" cm - both in that it is not high (she said normally they have to reach WAY back to find it) and that it wasn't a stretch to say it was a cm it's more like a little over a cm. 30% effaced and -2 (how does that work? What are the stations - does that mean she's high or dropped?). Weight gain to date 32 lbs, blood pressure and urine good. I can't remember what she said the HB was but it was good. With both DS's I was 1.5 cm and 30-50% effaced and my 36 week appts and with #1 I was 10 days late and induced and #2 I went to just a couple days before my due date so it will be interesting to see what this little girl does.
And I was really surprised she was telling me that usually with the third they don't drop - they like to float higher AND you usually stay closed longer and then just dilate faster. I would have thought the total opposite.
-2 is still a little high, but she has dropped some. I'm at 0 station now which means her head is engaged in the pelvis and +4 means baby is crowning. Some websites have pics of diagrams that shows you the stations. I googled it because I was never told what station DS was at so that was all new to me. Sounds like you had a great appt!

Great appt! Maybe you will go sooner this time!?!?
I was just looking at a picture yesterday because I couldn't remember the stations either so I thought I would share this with you. Gives you a good idea. I'm at a -1..but I feel like maybe he has dropped more since yesterday

Congrats on a good appt. That's interesting about the third baby, I hope this one comes out quick and easy! I do have new stretch marks way up high so maybe he is higher than my first two. But at the same time I swear he's super low, maybe he just likes to stretch hehe.
