Well I just got back from the Doctor. I'm 75% effaced , 2 cm dialated and I've dropped.Someone even commented on my dropping a week ago. I have some other weird things going on such as mild cramping, diarrhea , nausea and I've also lost five lbs. Now, I have been sick (coughing alot) with a bad cold, so some of the signs may be due to sickness but could it be?

Btw, I'm 36 1/2 weeks pregnant and this is my 4th baby but it's been 10 yrs since the last.

Any thoughts?


ps. I hate having no computer and not being able to post more often!

Okay, so I just went to the bathroom and when I wiped (tmi) I had thick pink slimy stuff on my paper. I know after a cervical check that you can spot but this was like pink mucus. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

How exciting. You are definitely getting close. I think I was 70% effaced and 2 cm dilated about a week before I gave birth to DS. I haven't had any checks this time but I definitely have been feeling my cervix doing something, feels like things are slowly happening. I've had the cramping too off and on for the last week, and recenlty my BH contractions have gotten stronger and I can feel pressure down in my cervix and way low down in my back too. The race is on!

allgirls, sending you "keep the baby in until 37 weeks" vibes. I've worried a couple times about that myself, especially in the last week. I will be 37 weeks on Saturday, I'll feel so much more relaxed about it then.

Sounds like it to me, too! The beginning of the end of the aches. Lucky you.
