ok went to dr yesterday. HE said that my little one has dropped so low he can feel her head. he mentioned being efaced but I cant remember how much and I just have this feeling she is coming soon. Could she really be coming soon? Im 35 weeks and dr said she measures 36 weeks!!! she weighs 6 pounds already too!!! could she very well decide she wants to come now?

  • thats a good size. but baby will come when baby wants to come and not a minute sooner so try and relax. with my first I had a premee she was 31 weeks.. that morning I had a check and I was closed and 0 efaced
    with my son the second one he came on time but get this I wass 4cm dialated and 100% efaced sept 26th-- I worked 2 more 12 hour shifts on my feet (against medical advice) and he still did not come until Oct 1st at 2pm that was 4 days later! LOL

  • You can never tell with babies, I think. If your Dr. had any concerns about this, I am sure he would have mentioned you going on bedrest or something. I hope everything goes well for you!
