Today I measured only 1.5 cms with the cervix still high up there, hard, and not thinning any. My midwife did a quick ultrasound (on an ancient machine) to determine the baby's position. Even though the baby is riding low the head is actually NOT engaged in my pelvis. Could have fooled me! :S

I am measuring only 37 weeks (I've been lagging behind for the last couple of visits), which isn't worrisome because I *am* growing.

I have to schedule a bio-physical profile for this Monday and if I don't have the baby next week then I will go for another one NEXT Monday as well. If the baby doesn't come by that Thursday (41 weeks) and I'm showing no signs of progress we'll be talking induction. *sigh*

Sorry to hear that you're not having a whole lot of progression, but like Sunnydaze said, I've heard that it can happen all at once. Hopefully it happens for you before you need to be induced.

I know it can happen suddenly but this was pretty much how it went with my son so I'm definitely feeling a strong sense of deja vu, lol.
