nothing really. Just means your cervix is thinning.. which is a good sign for dilation.
but.. doctors should never tell anyone when they think they'll have a baby. They're usually wrong.. there's no way to know what hte body will do. How far dilated were you?

with my son i was 70% and dialted to a 2... on a friday had membranes stripped... water broke sunday night.


you got lots of dialating to go.

don't bank on him saying this weekend. i'd start walking. that should help it get going.
