I had a checkup yesterday and the midwife said the baby's head was really low and I was 60% effaced, although not dialated. She is threatening to put me on bedrest if I show any signs of going into labor. She seemed pretty concerned since I only pushed around 5-6 times for less than an hour with DD (my labor was about 16 hours from beginning to end, but didn't have to push much to get her out) and seems to think I will have a fast birth this time around. I haven't really started preparing much at all for this baby and this prompted me to order my birth kit and make a list of all the stuff I need for the baby's early days. How concerned should I be? : I just don't want to get put on bedrest and not have all my shopping done!
