Hi ladies! I went to the dr this morning expecting a normal routine check up and once again our baby boy is acting up again! When my dr came in to check his hb I layed back and started contracting right away...a strong one. She asked if they have been getting closer together and stronger since my last visit and I just kind of smiled at her and she said "I will take that as a yes!" So she checked his hb and it sounded good but since the contraction she witnessed was so strong she decided to check my cervix to make sure I wasn't dialating. So it turns out we are not dialating yet but I have begun the effacement process! She said I was definitely thinning out already but I didn't think to ask her how thinned out I was. I was just in shock when she told me that. So then she decided to put me on the NST machine to watch my contractions and see how close they are. Well after about 45 mins on the monitor we tracked 11 contractions = about 4 minutes apart! I guess in my everyday life I didn't really notice that they were that close together. Some are stronger than others but we definitely were able to see that they were consistent. Now I have to go back to the dr on Wednesday to get my cervix checked again to make sure I still haven't started dialating and to make sure I haven't thinned out any further. I am terrified I am going to be put on bed rest! I am the "bread winner" for our family and if I have to go on bed rest that is going to KILL us financially! So please keep your fingers crossed that this little man stays in there for at least another 7 weeks or so! I will let you know about our appt on Wednesday when I get done!

*****UPDATE*****
So we went in on Wednesday to be rechecked and I haven't progressed any farther since she checked me on Monday. Thank goodness! I did however ask her how thinned out I was and she said I am 70% effaced!!!! I thought maybe I was just thinning out a little bit! She still hasn't given me anything to stop the contractions at all but has moved me to weekly appointments now. I go back in on Monday to be checked again and to have another u/s. I asked if it was still ok for me to be working and she said "for now!" So thanks for the T&P's ladies! I think they worked again!!!!

I'm hoping there won't be any more effacement by your next appointment so you won't have to go on bedrest. Good luck!

I am glad you are OK to keep working....I know you were concerned about that. Sounds like things are pretty good. You are almost 32 weeks right? Keep that baby in for atleast a few more weeks and I think everything will be fine! KUP with your future appointments.
