  • sorry you could still have up to 3 weeks left! but not being dilated and not having "dropped" yet doesn't really mean anything. you could go into labor tomorrow. good luck! :D

  • Relax relax relax.

    When the baby is ready the baby WILL come and there are many many women who do not dialate until labor and there are many babies who don't drop until the last moment. 40 weeks is an AVERAGE that means women can go 2-3 weeks earlier than that and 2-3 weeks after that...all in the range of normal. You've made it this far, what's a little longer?
