Ugh, Dr's Visit. (and TMI)
Ok, I know I'm going nuts, but... was checked AGAIN at my dr's office (It's routine procedure), and now I'm at 2cm dialated, and 70% effaced. The only thing to change is the dialation...

And now, since she checked... I HURT. Internally. *sigh* I just got DS from the bus-stop, and every little step was a little stabby pain... :banghead:

It's frustrating the heck out of me because I KNOW I have at least a week left, and I want to be done so very much. :lostit: I know, like I said, I'm nuts.

Doc asked AGAIN if I had everything ready to go. She apparently thinks it's any day now. :headscratch: She even said:
"Remember, your blood type is O+, and you're Strep B negative, if you call or go into the hospital at night or over the weekend, they may not have your records on hand"

Should I even bother hoping, or should I keep raining on my own parade?

And... is it possible that at 2cm dialated I still have my mucus plug, or did I lose it and NOT even notice? :headscratch: I don't remember how things like that were with DS 1 and DS.

Not in your DDC, but wanted to offer you some hope.

With YDS, I was 1cm and about 50% the day my water broke. It'll happen for you soon mama!!

:hugs: Thanks for that mama.

I know I'm nuts here, but... it's my 3rd time, and it's been 5 years since the last one... so I feel completely thrown for a loop by everything.

2cm and 70% is great considering you're not due until the 30th! you must be doing something right, mama. patience. : )

I was maybe 1 cm and 70% effaced the day that I went in to get checked by my Dr. He said it would still be a week or so (I was already a week and a half overdue) and scheduled my induction. I told him I had a feeling about the day and he told me I was crazy. I went into labor that evening and DS was born the next evening. So, you never know.

i still have my MP- though it has been coming out in pieces the past few days, but not much- and im also 2 cm dialated, and not sure how much effaced....unfortunatly this could be like this for weeks, or it could be days. you never really know. I personally hope this baby stays in for another week and a half. im ready- but I dont want to miss my 2 year olds first week of preschool. LOL! I want to bring him myself! :)

good luck, and all in due time mama, all in due time.

The last few weeks of pregnancy are SOOO hard. The waiting, the wondering, the more waiting the more wondering....ughhh.

Sympathies!! I can't tell you when you'll go but they say once you think you'll be pregnant forever, the baby will come!

I'm declining checks this time until 41 weeks, but with DS I was hardly dilated or effaced when they stripped my membranes at almost 41 weeks and he was born 18 hours later.
