I am one centimeter dilated and 50% effaced. As of three days ago I started having severe pressure in my vagina plus four real contractions. I am now having menstrual like cramps all day long. So exciting! I am 37 weeks on Sunday. The contractions aren't measurable yet. I could be like this for a looooong time or a short time. I had an ultrasound a couple days ago and the baby measured around 7 lbs although I know there can be a huge margin of error. Non stress test today was great.
Husband is out of town until Tuesday and my baby shower is tomorrow. I'm not ready yet but we will see what happens! I know that some people walk around dilated for weeks but I am guessing a week or so to go.
Anyone else dilating?
