    Hello ladies. I can't believe it we are 39 weeks today only 7 days till our little girl is due. I went to the doctor today and she told me I'm still not dilated yet but she is 0 station so she is engaged...yaaa!! Also she said my cervix is very short and soft (she could feel little Marley's head). I told her I have been walking my self crazy and that I was having a lot of braxton hicks contractions and she told me I need to stop walking so much its just making me tiered and I should take like 2 baths a day and submerge my tummy in warm water, this would make my uterus relax and if its ready my water will break. She also said I may not make it to my appointment next week which would be her due date :) I am soooooo happy I can't wait to meet our little girl!!! I hope you ladies out there are getting some good news too I know with this heat I am so miserable and cant wait for her :)

    I have never heard of submerging in warm bath to help along.....This would be great except we only have tank water and it takes a million years to fill my bath full enough to cover my bump LOL......
    Good luck and I hope you meet your little one soon....
