I am 37 weeks and have been having bouts of 'false' labor. My MW came to my house today for our appointment, I asked her if she thought there was any value in doing a pelvic. She told me that she didn't need to do one for herself but would be happy to do one if it would help me in any way. Since I had intense false labor this past Friday I decided to go ahead and have her check me. She found my cervix to be anterior, a stretchy 2 cm and 50% effaced. Now, this is #4 for me and I know that I could be 2cm for weeks. I was curious about the cervical position being anterior rather than posterior. I know that usually the cervix turns anterior before birth but is there a time table for that?
I'm not in a big hurry and am confident that this little one will come when he or she is ready, I'm just curious.
