    So had an appt today and found out I am 3cm dilated & 30% effaced!!!:happydance::happydance::happydance:

    I was so afraid she was going to tell me that there was nothing going on down there even though I've been having so many pains. I asked about doing a sweep prior to the exam and she did one for me. She said baby & body are definitely revving and ready to go & she is pretty confident that the sweep will yield some results but its no guarantee.

    I am so excited that I am 3cm already and really hoping that the sweep takes effect and puts me into labor. just wanted to share with someone.

    I'm ridiculously excited, a few pains here and there but no contractions yet that I have noticed. But then again...I think I'm too hungry to notice much else & too lazy to go make something to eat :blush:

    Oh I definitely am impressed!!! With my son I was induced with pitocin and at 2-3cms I was in tears begging for an epidural, the contractions on that drug are worse than horrible. :nope:

    Well its wednesday and I'm still pregnant!!! I had some cramping & contractions that night and yesterday as well. Nothing regular but I can feel my cervix has effaced more & I think I went at least another cm dilated as well. So it did something but did not put me into labor. I'm still hoping it will be soon though because I'm ready and my body is definitely giving me signs that she is not more than a week off. :flower:

    goodluck sweeps are frustrating things as they get our hopes up but I hear many women are more succesful on their second sweep plus it can take up to 48 hrs to kick in x

    Good luck!

    With my 2nd baby I was 3cms at my 40 week appointment, I had to be induced 2 weeks later, he was comfy in there lol.
