I've been timing my BH contractions just for fun tonight and they're coming every 5-6 minutes, lasting about a minute each. I remember this point from last time (when I was timing them like crazy thinking they might actually be the real thing) and I know it won't be long now! They're picking up a little in intensity and while I know cervical checks don't tell you much, I checked myself and things are definitely progressing. Two days ago I couldn't feel my cervix at all and tonight I found it easily and it's soft and about a fingertip dilated.

I'm fully prepared to stay pregnant for another 3 weeks, but I'm having a good time noticing all these changes.

Anybody else gearing up?

I have contractions all day long lately, some bordering on painful. I'm dilated to a "loose 1" but still pretty thick last time we checked. Being that I have so much extra fluid, I'm not counting on there being much dilating or effacement before I actually go into labor because baby is still "floating and bouncing" in my pelvis instead of locking into position and putting pressure on my cervix. I have another NST tomorrow and depending on the results we will decide how to proceed from here.

Let us know how your appointment goes. Wishing you good luck.

That's exciting!

I think I had my first "real" contraction yesterday. Holy. Crap. I actually had to breathe through it and it's possibly the most uncomfortable feeling I've ever felt. It was only one, but it lasted at least 30 seconds. At my appointment last week I was a good 1cm and 70% effaced, but baby's head was still "bobbing a little". I go today at 1:30 and hopefully things have progressed! We're talking induction for next week, but I'm hoping that things are moving along on their own.
