I realize I might continue to show surprise at each and every doctors visit as I continue to be pregnant right up to my due date, but I am honestly shocked at my level of progress at just 36 weeks.
Let's remember that last week, I was
1-2 cms dilated - 30% effaced - baby at -2 station
At my appointment today my doctor noted that I am
3 cms dilated - 70% effaced - baby at -1 station
I don't even think I've had that many Braxton Hicks this past week come to think of it. I dilated another and 70% effaced? HOLY COW! And baby has moved down some, too, which explains my new level of pubic discomfort.
Guess it's a good thing the bassinet liner came in the mail yesterday and that I finished packing my hospital bag last night. Sometime today I need to make it to Target to pick up Tylenol (my headaches are back) and Evening Primrose Oil capsules.
