37+2 = 3cm dilated, 70% effaced, baby at -1 station


I am freaking out! The midwife was surprised with my progress. She said she wouldn't be surprised if I went into labor tonight! I know I could be 3cm for weeks, but I have been having contractions on and off for the past week so I assume all this progress was made in the past week. This is the first time they checked me.

Anyone know the chances of me going into labor in the next few days? I am scared!

It could happen for sure, or nothing could happen for a bit! My MW checked me wednesday and I'm at 5 cm, 25% effaced but baby was high at a -3. She told me once he drops a bit more and puts more pressure on my cervix I should thin out and have a pretty quick labor. This is my 4th so I don't know how it'll go! I'm 37 wks 4 days. My last two boys were born at 37 wks and were both 8 lbs!

Here's hoping! Lots of contractions but not much else happening!

Didyou guys asked to be checked? I haven't yet!

Told mw that I lost my plug Monday and Bern having irregular contractions since tues and she still didn't check me. So I have no idea if I am progressing!!!

Yes I asked. Part of me wishes I didn't know though so i wouldn't be driving myself crazy with why I'm not in labor yet!

wantabean- i was wondering the same thing!!

i had to be asked to be checked. and i'm only at 1cm but she said my cervix is way up front and she said she could feel his little head. so i'm hoping that means he'll come soon!

I wouldnt worry, though take it as a sign to make sure you have everything ready just incase you do go a little earlier.

Ive been 4cm since 32 weeks, baby is fully engaged and Im still here
