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!
