I had an appt yesterday and my midwife wanted to check my cervix. Looks like I'm dialated to 5 and I haven't had any noteable contractions. WOW!!

I know when we delivered Annika, I hardly noticed the labor and really couldn't pin-point any contractions that I could time. I was just uncomfortable and my hips felt a bit achy.

B/c I'm already to 5, the midwife thinks I may have a similar "mild"-as she put it- labor.
If I start to feel "uncomfortable" like last time she doesn't want me to waste anytime getting to the hospital. So, it could be today or it could be 2 weeks. Either way, this baby is on her way.

Awesome! I wish I'd had something like that. As it was I had horrible contractions all night one night, and the next day at my appt. I wasn't dilated AT ALL! Terrible.


Good luck honey! I hope it's sooner rather than later!

Everyone at work is surprised that I still keep coming in everyday. My Dr said as long as I wasn't contracting and I wasn't straining myself I should be fine.
I have another appt on Tues..if I make it that long. I wonder if I will dialate any more.

If I do, do you think they will take any steps to get me to have the baby sooner. I guess I could have asked but I didn't think of it at the time.

My Dr. said they wouldn't let me go past six because then they'd be worried about the cord coming first if the baby weren't engaged enough. But every dr. is different. You should definitely ask.

I live/work about 35 min from the hospital. If dh is already at work I have 3 ppl lined up to drive me and they are all just moments away.
Hopefully, that's enough time!!!
