So what exactly does this mean? I had some bloody show tonight, but it seems to have stopped. I had an appointment today and they don't expect me to make it to my next week's appointment, but other than that didn't really say it'll probably be in x amount of time.

The baby has dropped so much I seriously feel like her head is already between my legs. Up until today I've been working full time. I think I may take tomorrow off though.

With dd1 I had my appt and I was 4 cm and my water broke 6 hours after they told me that.

Can I do anything to help move things along? Shall I instruct dh to violate me tonight???LOL

My MW would say, "It doesn't mean anything if you're not in labor."

She also says to me, "Your next appointment might be a post partum visit!" Every time we schedule the next appointment.

Anyway, the chances are high that you will have your baby at some point in the very near future.

when is your due date? I have been 4 cm dilated and 90% effaced for two weeks...and due this Sunday...but nothing new...how long does this kind of thing usually last? I am starting to get nervous that nothing happening so far despite these signs means that I am more likely to keep going past my due date...does it mean anything for that? scared of having to get induced at 42 weeks...

OMG I cannot imagine walking around like this for another 2 weeks...it is not comfortable to walk now! It seriously feels like her head is just about out! My due date isn't for another 12 days (but who is counting).

I had light ctrxns most of last night, but woke up and nothing. More bloody show today, but that has stopped again as well. I just need something to happen soon!
