So I had my appointment today. Last week at L&D, I was only a fingertip dilated and 50% effaced. Today I was still 50%, but I was 2 cm dilated. With DD, I wasn't 2 cm dilated until my water had broken and had been in labor for 12 hours. She also said that my cervix is really soft and Lena's head is at -2. So not all the way in there, but not too far out either. I am pretty encouraged by this bc of how my labor with DD went. It was never this good until I was well into labor. The midwife I have seen for most of my appointments didn't think I would make it much past 37 weeks, so we will see if she is right. In my head, I know that I could walk around for weeks like this and the midwife I saw today reminded me of that, but I can't help but start to get excited. The practical side of me knows it would be best for her to wait another couple of weeks to show up, but the part of me that is so done being pregnant hopes it's tonight!
I have been having sharp pains in my back every once in a while and the BH contractions have kept on coming. So I suppose we'll see!
Sounds like an amazing appointment hun. I was similar with our first, I walked around 3cm for 5 weeks granted I started at 3cm at 31 weeks but he was a 12 hour intervention birth. When I was pregnant with Katelynn I thought it was going to be similar but she came in 4 hours after my water broke at home. Like you I was 2cm and about 50%. So I hope you have a wonderful birth this time around. And you just never know.
