at my visit today, I was 1 centimeter dilated and 50 percent effaced! Doc also said my cervix was "very soft" and anterior. Whoooohooooo! I know this doesn't necessarily mean that I'm going to go into labor right away, but it's just reassuring to know

Dumb question: The ob/gyn said he could feel baby's head when he felt my cervix. Does that mean he's dropped? Because I never really FELT like he dropped, and I've always heard "Oh, you'll definitely know!" But I guess I didn't, LOL!

Well there's 'dropped' and 'dropped'. They come down, engage a bit, etc. Common in most pregnancies. Then there's 'holy cow the baby dropped' where you feel like you're sitting on their head every time you sit down and you have NO ROOM for ANYTHING down there so you live in the bathroom. That's the one you 'can't miss'.
