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