Hey ladies I must say my little man is coming early and I am so EXCITED! went to my appointment yesterday thinking the same routine weight, blood pressure baby heart rate, check and then see you next Saturday. She goes to check the cervix and she goes wow! You are a cm and I can feel the babies head he is ready to go. She gave me a week two weeks max! My eldest was about 3 weeks early. My youngest was two days over due and I was induced and now my third baby boy following his brother. Slight contractions all through tonight and this morning and I swear I have been on that toilet with the number 2 about 5 times in the past 6 hours. Isn't that a sign of labor coming? Do you guys think I am going to make it two more weeks??click to enter text
I had preterm labor at 32 weeks, which they stopped after a few days of being on mag. Thank god because I was so afraid she would be early.
Since 32 weeks... I've had time-able contractions, lost my mucous plug, they felt the baby's head in position, had a pos fetal fibernectin, 1cm, 60% effaced and have a very very short cervix. So I constantly wonder the same thing but so far and thankfully we're still baking!
I wouldn't base it all on the fact that you're 1cm and the baby is in position because I've been the same for 4 weeks, going on 5. Then again! you never know.
Right! I know you can sit at 1cm for a while. when the dr. said she can feel his head I was in shock. Still having mild contractions. With my first two i didnt have any. My first water leaked through the night so next day i was induced. The Protocin set my big waves off and i went fron 2-6-10 cm in no time. My second son was two days over and I was induced again so the same drug brought them on, and i was 10cm in a flash. First labor was like 8 hours, the other was 5. This is the first time I am actually listening to my body. It's such a different experience.
Good luck ladies! Roper hang in there, I know you have to be nerve RECKED! Through the grace of God your Baby will be hot and well done before he/she comes out
