Went to the doctor yesterday (33 weeks 5 days)
I am 4 cm dilated and 60% effaced



-this is our second child.

just curious how long you were dilated for?!?!?!?!



I have had Braxton hicks but nothing continuous just a few here and there mostly at night.



I do have lots of pressure in my bottom and sometimes In my lower back



and pretty sure it normal but occasional pressure in my vaginal area and soreness :/



my doctor did out me on pelvic rest

With DD I was 3cm dilated at 31 weeks, I stayed that way until I went into labor at 40 weeks 4 days.

I wasn't checked until 35 weeks but I was 4cm and 70% effaced until 39 weeks 3 days when my water broke.

What made them check you? Yeah take it super easy. Id be outting myself on modified bed rest. That's a little early to be dilated that much and preemies are no fun. With dd1 I was dilated a month but not that much :shock: with dd2 luckily I didn't dilate early or else she'd have had to come out sooner. I was 35 weeks with her.

I was at 3cm for two weeks with my daughter. She was born right at 38 weeks.

I was 3 cm and 70 % effaced with our first son and went to hospital 2 weeks later and was 6cm 90% having contractions every few mind but all I felt was pressure! So thought checking early may b a good idea.



this baby he said was at a -2



ha I have been taking it ez :) my husband and our son are getting lots if bonding time together



I have heard ladies stay dilated for a while my doctor just made me nervous when e said he wants baby to stay in there atleast until 35 weeks (that's a weeks and 1 day
from now)

Yeah everyday you keep baby in the better!!! I kept going against dr recommendations and pushed my csection off longer than they were comfortable with. I tried to push it 3 more days but they finally put their foot down with me at 35+4. Idk where u are in MI but if you're gonna have a preemie I'd get to a nicu hospital cause you could end up separated if you don't. I Chose my hospital bed rest an hour away so I had the nicu cause I knew she'd be early and I didn't wanna chance her being separated.



Btw I love the avi!!! We need new tigers shirts this yr. we all had matching ordonez shirts when dd1 was a baby :( then last summer I was preg so this summer we want new shirts so we can go to a game!!! Idk who we want on them though. But we had cute family pics in them at a game back when dd1 was a baby :) I want that again with the new baby :)

my doctor isn't concerned if he came at 35 weeks because since 17 weeks every ultrasound we have had his development has been measuring weeks ahead.
The hospital I go to had a nicu and would let me stay at the hospital as long as he does if even had to.



thank you!

Size doesn't change lung development, ability to regulate body temp, and ability I regulate blood sugar, as well as brain development. I had the perfectly developed and big 35 weeker and was thrilled she was gonna stay with me and then BAM we were hit with low blood sugar and they took her from my arms to the nicu. You can't predict what will happen.

I trust my doctor he didnt say his size was ahead he said his development.

How can he test for that stuff?!!! Unless he did an amino for king development you can't predict any of that stuff. Plus not to mention some 35 seekers have problems eating too. I sat in the hospital for a month and talked to several drs and nurses and nicu staff and they all said the same thing. They could be fine or they could have issues. You never know. And you never know how long they'll stay. Could be one day could be til their DD.
