Just got back from my 36 week appointment. I finally got my cervix checked and found out that my contractions are actually doing something!! yay! I'm almost 3cm dilated and 70% effaced. My doctor said it could be tomorrow or it could be two weeks but if my contractions keep up more likely sooner than later I will be 37 wks on Saturday so that's my goal. Nobody crush my dreams by telling me you were like this and then went to 41 weeks o.k. I would rather live in ignorance thinking I will be done in two weeks or less.

Good luck! I too have had lots more contractions this time around and really hope they are doing something too. I probably won't be checked, but a girl can dream, right??
