My Dr. is on vacation this week so he sent me to one of his collegues (spelling?) for this weeks apointment. He asked if I wanted checked and out of curiosity I said yes...expecting no news. As it turns out I'm walking around 3cm dialated!!!! Yeah. He said I'm still a little long and 20% effaced...does that sound right? I know what dialated means but confused on the rest. I quess my concern is my waters braking somewhere embarassing! I have been going swimming the past 3 days and plan on going for 2hrs tonight as the water feels so cool and I can do squats more easily in the water. It hurts to walk 2 blocks as my back/hips ache and I'm slow as molasses! But I also have a fear of my waters breaking someplace in public! Has that happend to anyone? How active would you be/are you if you're dialated that much or more?
