Is labor really around the corner??

Oct 06, 2011 - 3 comments

So today i went for my 37 weeks appointment, and my doctor did a cervical check and told me that i am 1cm dilated and 50% effaced.. I know that a lot of women are 1 cm dilated and can take up to 3 weeks for them to be fully dilated, but im just so excited.. Also (TMI) i went to the bathroom like 5 minutes ago and i noticed a brown-redish discharge and guessing that was my mucus plug.!! Im having some very mild contractions and some cramps.

Now the waiting game begins!!

Hopefully Baby will wait a couple more days since sunday im officially FULL TERM!!

yayyyy so happy.!!

Just wanted to share with my MED friends!!

Good luck on labor and hope you make it to sunday..

Labor is a tricky bugger, I still havent figured it out...  I went into the hospital last week because I was having contractions every 3-5minutes apart.. I was 1 cm 75% effaced....  The contractions continued for  the next 24 hours, I got great sleep that night ;)....  Next day I was 3 Cm 80-90% effaced... then they started dying down... now i have like 1 or 2 contractions here or there...   I had some streaky redish mucous too (was told it could be some part of a mucous plug/show ... but could also be from the cervix check).. I thought for sure I would have the baby by now.. But nope.. Almost to 39 weeks..... and at my 38 week appointment two days ago (1 week from the time I went to the hospital)... I was still only 3 cm and 80% effaced...  Baby is just too comfy in there even though she is sitting at station 0...  I know labor is coming but man it can be slow to get here...

=) its exciting though, glad I still have some people to follow who are in similar boats!

Wow you could go in labor any minute now hopefully baby stay until Sunday :)
The discharge it could probably be from the check up you had but who knows baby can stay in there 2 or 3 more weeks..she's the only one to decide when to come to this world lol
I'm hoping my baby stay in there until 39 weeks.. i tell him please baby stay two more weeks lol cause DH vacation start on the 20 even though he gets maternity leave I preferred baby come on his vacation
