At my appt today my dr said I am now 3 cm dialated and 50% effaced with the baby sitting at -2 station. I don't know how to feel exactly. I'm excited of course but I'm also scared and nervous and frankly, I'm not quite ready for this pregnancy to be over yet. Oh well..guess it will happen when it happens. Any thoughts on how much longer I might be pregnant? With my first I was 1 cm at my appt and two days later I woke up in full blown labor and was 4 cm when I got the hospital with painful contractions every few minutes. I guess I was just wondering if this means labor is right around the corner for me or if it's possible I might just sit at 3 cm for a couple more weeks?? I was 1 cm at my last appt a week ago btw.
with my first i was nothing until i went into labor. with my second i was 3cm and 80% effaced 2 weeks before i delivered. sorry. but you said your not quite ready yet. you could very well have a couple more weeks in you! good luck. either way we are all at the end huh? do you want anymore children?
Yes I do want more children and so does DH. We plan on having more but we have a 5 year plan we've come up with. Basically no more kids for at least 5 years. LOL I know I'll get to experience pregnancy again but I didn't realize how much I loved having Spencer all to myself until he was here and everyone wanted to take him from me all the time. I guess that's part of my fear right now. I don't want to have to share him when he's born. That and having two kids under the age of two..double diaper duty, home alone all day long...ugh.
I was 2 cm and 60-70% for two weeks (and possibly longer, but hadn't been checked prior to that) and as of today I am 3 cm and 60-70%. I have a friend who was 2 cm for 3 weeks before she delivered... You really never know, I guess.
I think it's impossible to predict! I was 1cm and 90% effaced with Holden for over a month, and with Parker I was 1cm, but long and hard.. even got to the hospital and was still 1cm and 4 hours later he was born
