I thought this would be helpful information for 1st time moms. I had a doctor's appointment today and since I am past my due date they hooked me up to a monitor to monitor the babies heart rate and to see if I was contracting. Apparently I was!

This might help some of you know a little better what you are looking for!
I was also 3-4cm and 80% effaced! Hopefully something happens soon, but if not I am booked for an induction of the 4th of July!

Now paranoid its not her kicking at all- any advice?
