Today was my 36 week doctors appointment, and my cervix got all checked out for the first time. The status?
2cm dilated. 50% effaced (or ‘thinned out’).
Baby’s head is ‘pretty low’, to quote the doctor (which explains the sudden and sometimes extreme difficulty in walking- again with the ‘head in the crotch‘ explanation)
Of course, those of you who are familiar with the end of pregnancy know that being dilated and effaced means ABSOLUTELY NOTHING as far as when you’ll go into labor. But still. It’s nice to know there’s something going on down there.
Only 8 more cm to go!
