So today was my 36 week apt. Didn't even bother asking weight (I'm over it). Blood pressure was really good and actually the Group B Strep Test I did myself after my urine sample. It was pretty easy although it's been so long since anything has gone near the lady gardens I had a hard time just finding the right spot lol TMI but such a Meredith moment.

The nurse then got me a room, but didn't tell me to take my bottoms off. I immediately felt upset because I thought I was being checked and I just wanted to know if I was crazy or not or if things were starting to happen. When the Dr came in and asked how I was I basically just told him I wanted to numb my pelvic region for the next four weeks or take a very long slumber thank you very much. He found the heartbeat and pushed around my lower region, which KILLED, and then he goes "oh wow, yeah that head is right there on your bone, let's do an internal exam." YES maybe I'm not insane!

So, he does the internal, owie, and I actually come to find that I am 1cm dialated, 60% effaced, and at a -1 station as far as the head goes! I know that I shouldn't read too much into this and he reminded me that while I might have this baby early, don't get too fixated on that, it sort of makes me feel better knowing that something is starting to happen. I've been in so much pain, especially that lower pain and pressure that it just feels sort of good knowing it's because my body is starting to do it's natural thang.

Trying to stay calm and realize that next week I might be at the same exact position I was today, but if this one little ray of sunshine is keeping me happy through these aches and pains than so be it

It is nice to hear that you have something going on! Just look at it this way..your cervix has to be 100% effaced and 10 cm dilated. Well you already have over half of the effacement done and 1 cm down. Sounds awesome to me!

Yay! Progress!! -1 station sounds super painful!!

Now I'm even more anxious for Thursday to see if I've done anything or not! I'm one of those weirdos who like to know even if it doesn't mean anything

I think I felt better knowing just because I've been in so much pain and it was hard to believe that this was just normal, nothing progressing pain. It really has been wearing on me and although the measurements doesn't mean I am having the baby next week, it makes me feel good for some reason. Idk!

That's how I am thinking about it. Even if nothing has changed yesterday, it's a start! It just makes me feel good that my instincts that the baby dropped and where her head might be resting were correct.
