36.5 weeks and a check up

I am so anxious to see my baby, I can't wait! I just had my check up and she said I wasn't dilated at all but the cervix is softening a little bit. I know that no one is a phsychic but maybe from previous experiences you could tell me if you still had your baby a little earlier than 40 weeks even if you weren't starting to dilate yet. I know that she will come out when she's ready and I'm not trying to rush, I just can't wait.

  • i wasn't dilated at all and then i had my son at 41 weeks, that's probably what you should count on, just so you won't go too crazy waiting! actually maybe you should count on 42 weeks. and then you will be pleasantly surprised if she's born before then. good luck!
