So I know that you can walk around dilated for a while, but I asked my midwife to check me since i have had a few moments of 'this could be it.' I lost 4 lbs since my last visit, baby is at -1 and I am 2 cm dilated. The day I delivered dd I was still at fingertip dilated. The baby has also dropped, my fundal height was 36 and it was 39 last week. So, while I am trying not to get my hopes up, I am starting to think that over the next few days I might just go into labor

I will keep you all posted!

Getting close(r)! My EDD is the same as yours. I've carried this baby low for a long time, but the pressure on my cervix is really, really, really strong today...some lower back pain/pressure, too.

ELV when the time does come - be it five minutes from now or a week+.

Sometimes #s are encouraging and sometimes they're discouraging - those sound great! This kid is STILL stuck up in my ribs so I envy your dropping... but that's great news all around for you!

Hope it's soon Mama.

It is SO hard not to get hopes up - even w/the tiniest thing. I went to the bathroom this morning and had a piece of plug (probably smaller than my pinky fingernail!) on the tp and got excited. I mean - that's ridiculous! I could walk around plugless for at least a week and what I saw was probably about 1/100th of the stupid thing

I hope that your indicators are for all systems go
