Hi hun.

I am 39 weeks. Saw the Dr at my antenatal clinic today and asked for a sweep. They tried but my cervix is still posterior and 2cm long. She said I was barely 1cm dilated and that she couldnt do a sweep but that any examinations could start things off.

Not a thing has happened though but baby was 2/5 engaged. That doesnt mean anything though as it is baby # 4 so they pop in and out at will!! I was having contractions this morning but they stopped when I had a bath. Just fed up now

Is this your first? With my daughter I didn't dialate or anything until THE morning I went into labor. It can happen very last minute!! Don't worry

The EXACT same thing happened to me!!! I was terrified...

At 38+3 weeks - cervix closed, and baby not dropped enough.
39+1 weeks - cervix slightly open, baby not dropped enough.

Today at 40+1 - 1.5 centimeters dilated, baby dropped!

It turned around fast for me, so hopefully it does for you as well!

not to freak you out but...


My cirvix never turned. They induced labor and over 30 hrs later I still was not turned or dilated. The doc then took control and gave me a c section. Im now about to have my 2nd c section. yes the recovery is harder BUT having a healthy angel in your arms is the best feeling and takes all the pain away, Good luck but either way YOU WILL BE FINE. Promise! I was terrified!

At 40+4 appointment today, I was finally 1cm dilated and baby has very slowly begun to drop. It'll happen, baby is taking its time

with my 3rd baby, at 39 weeks i wasn't dilated at all and baby hadn't engaged, 2 days later my waters broke and i went into labor, but when i went in to get checked i still hadn't started dilating! it wasn't until my contractions were 3 minutes apart that i started dilating. and baby didn't engage until i was in full blown labor.
