Just be patient and wait for baby. It could happen tomorrow or it could happen in 2 weeks.

I walked around the grocery store for an hour and I will walk around work tomorrow all day long. I am hoping it progresses : ))

Here they normally start checking sooner than that! If your two centimeters it still really just depends on the baby. I have know people staying at the same dilation for a week if not longer

I am getting in the mind set of just waiting it out and keeping busy till he decides to come.

But I agree with other mommas. Start walking and doing things such as cleaning and everyday activities it may help the baby want to come!

My dr started checking around 35 weeks and then they checked every time i had an appointment after that. I guess it really just varies on how your dr thinks it should be done. but I'm suprised considering you had to ask most dr's just do it. But thats around here i've never been anywhere else ya know. so my thoughts probably arent the best :p

I had to ask my doctor and that is because he was debating on it, now they want to do an ultrasound next week to see if he will be too big for me since he is measuring 2 weeks ahead. I think that this is crazy that they are wanting to do all of this so late in the game.

Exactly. You figure they would be able to tell you if you were two weeks ahead. I wish you the best of luck though!
