Everything went pretty well. Weight gain is 18 lbs total so far. My doc doesn't think this baby will make the due date. I'm already at station 1 and 50 percent effaced. I just knew this baby had dropped when I felt like I was walking around w/a bowling ball in between my legs! Now, I wonder how fast I'll progress from here on out. My hospital bag isn't all the way packed yet, but real close and at least my house is clean so I'm pretty much ready. I still would like this baby to stay put a little while longer. That's pretty much it here!

Is this your first?

My first dropped like a bowling ball at 33 weeks, while I was helping my best friend prepare for her wedding (I was the matron of honor.. we made my dress that week and I will never forget measuring a 40" waist for the first time LOL). I waddled down the aisle with a bowling ball shoved in my panties. Haha. At my 34 weeks appointment they verified that baby was at 0 station (+1 station is less ready than 0, -4 is the head crowning... it goes 4, 3, 2, 1, 0, -1, -2, -3, -4) and that I was 3 cm dilated. I didn't birth until 37 weeks 5 days. 12 hour labor, 6 lb 3 oz baby. He's almost 13... now THAT is scary. LOL

No, this is my 3rd. I have a 4 yr old dd and a 22 mos old ds. You have the station info a bit backwards. -4 is when they're still floating in the pelvis, 0 is engaged in the pelvis and 4 is crowing.

Well thank you lily fair for the correction!
