So I went to the doctor today I am 38 weeks and 4 days....I'm 2cm 70% effaced and in stage minus 2 station the babies head is from your ladies experience how long til labor and such.

Last week at this time I was a fingertip dilated and 40% effaced and the baby hadn't dropped til this past week fully.

So do I need just to sit back and rest or what?

I'm posting anon cause I do feel very stupid asking this but I am very curious.

  • Don't feel stupid, you won't know unless you ask...

    Unfortunately this could mean that you go into labor tonight, or you could end up going to 40+ weeks. It's really hard to know. It's nice to know that you are progressing, but it does not really mean much.
