36 weeks, a fingertip and 50%

Today, we are 36 weeks and 4 days! My blood pressure was 117/76, weighed in at 156 (up 31 lbs), his heartbeat was in the 140s, my belly is measuring 36 cm, he is head down but not engaged, I am a fingertip dilated and 50% effaced! So many things to check on today. They did the strep B test and will have results next week. While doc was checking on me, she said I had a contraction! I had no idea. I guess I’m probably having contractions even thought I keep saying “no” when I’m asked at exams. I guess I don’t know what I should be feeling for in a contraction. So many things to learn!

    Oh, man! I’m almost 37 weeks, too, and 75 percent effaced, but having painful contractions every few minutes for the last two weeks. Be glad you can’t feel them!!! :)

    Yay! You’re on your way!

    I coulda sworn I’d never felt a contraction until going to the hospital and watched the monitor as contraction after contraction occurred. I realized I had been feeling them for weeks and had mistaken them for the little guy pushing against my belly!

    Cant wait for a big announcement and then Toby’s first playdate!
