Quoting тᴀỵ 30:" If you have been having contractions, then you could've made progress -- if you're not dilated, don't get discouraged, it doesn't really mean anything. Good luck!"
Quoting Soon 2B Mom of 2:" I stayed dialated at 1 cm from 36 weeks untill I went into labor, with contractions on and off again ... [snip!] ... mean your dialating, or it could mean nothing. Hang in there mama, your time is almost up. LO cant stay in there forever "
Quoting Chels :3:" Getting checked today. Did anyone get checked and there wasn't dilation but said the baby was baring ... [snip!] ... I've start contracting this past week? Does that mean I could have made progression. I haven't lost my plug or anything "I've been getting checked since 36w, i've been 1cm since then--no changes really except that i am almost completely effaced. Since I have gestational diabetes, my dr is inducing me on the 6th.
Quoting Chels :3:" Thanks. My original EDD was the 8th and she changed it when I was 32 weeks to the 16th it's only a ... [snip!] ... matter much to me. But I'm either 9 or 17 days away either way I'm really afraid of for 42 weeks and needing be induced. "
Quoting Chels :3:" Lol she's so squirmy she's running out of room. When I get a contraction and my stomach gets hard and ... [snip!] ... like as if she were fighting it, and I'm always like "I'm sorry baby girl ! I can't stop it!" I always feel so bad! Lol."
Quoting Soon 2B Mom of 2:" Lol I felt the same way with my first. Now I'm more like "please stop moving so much, your killing mommy" ... [snip!] ... moved I thought I would die. It was good to know she was doing ok, but seriously I got sick as hell everytime she was awake."
Quoting Chels :3:" At least she wont get the flu now though! Lol. And I just feel helpless she obviously doesn't like ... [snip!] ... blown contraction. Ever since the BH stopped and now I actually get painful minute+ long contractions. I just can't time them. "
Quoting Soon 2B Mom of 2:" My labor was the same way. I had completely random contractions all day one day. They got to 45 minutes ... [snip!] ... 5 minutes apart and lasting 30 seconds. I was 39+4 so you still have plenty of time before I would worry about being induced "
Quoting Chels :3:" Getting checked today. Did anyone get checked and there wasn't dilation but said the baby was baring ... [snip!] ... I've start contracting this past week? Does that mean I could have made progression. I haven't lost my plug or anything "
Quoting Kelsey Johnson:" My cervix is just way back there like on a curve and his head is dropping fast.. I'm dilated 3 cm. But, ... [snip!] ... cervix.. I haven't lost my plug either.. But, I would say you're making progress. Because I'm 38 weeks, & that's how I was."
Quoting Chels :3:" Yeah see I do these weird like dog style position my TMI lol. not sex though and do like squats with ... [snip!] ... bed anymore. Unless I do that, so I'm hoping that helps. I'm gonna see if anyone has an exercise ball I can borrow thanks."
Quoting Kelsey Johnson:" I have heard of those squats.. I tried them and they kinda hurt.. But, the excercise ball helped me ... [snip!] ... in like a day!! & WALKING!! & swimming.. not like athletic swimming.. just chillin' in the pool. & warm baths. "
