I'm 38.5 weeks today, which is exactly when I had my DS. I've been having erratic contractions since about 1:00pm, but no real pattern and intensity/frequency are not increasing. I did have a mw appointment this evening and decided to have her check me. I've never had a cervical check except in labor, because I think they are useless, but meh, I let the curiosity get the better of me. I'm 3 cm and 80% effaced. Which tells me exactly nothing, just like I knew it would.
