36 weeks excited/scared

so at my appt today doc did the strep b test and checked for dilation...now as we were talking before he did this i was asking questions and i had told him i have a feeling the baby is goin to be early. his response" well honestly you dont seem to be uncomfortable, so i highly doubt that the baby has dropped or that you are dilated any. and by your measurements you are right on track, " as hes checking my cervix his face goes into utter shock..."you are dilated to 1 cm and babys head is right there....you wont make it another 2 weeks".....so i guess we shall see how long i make it....but so far thankfully besides headaches, heartburn, and having gestational diabetes i have had it easy compared to a lot of the ladies on here..

Congrats on your news. I go to my 36 week check up tomorrow and hopefully I'll be some what dilated.  I can hardly walk and sit and also been having lots of contractions not strong enough to but ones that bug you like crazy.

i havent felt any contractions nor has it been hard to walk....so it was actually really surprising to me. i kinda figured she was low but i didnt think she was THAT low. the only time i am kinda uncomfortable is sitting on the couch and leaning foward but not super uncomfortable.

That's weird. At 36 weeks I was 1 cm dilated and his head was right there. I'm 38 weeks now...
