Am i wrong for feeling this way?

I am 35 weeks preggo with my 4th. I went to the doctor the other day and he told me i was dialted and when he did an ultrasound it showed that my baby is already way down there in postion. Am i wrong for thinking he might come early. The doctor and every one i talk to keep saying that he prob wont come til my due date because you can stay dilated for a while. But i have this feeling hes going to come before then. Am i crazy?

  • It is possible that your baby may come before you "due date". Remember they are only an estimation, and baby will decided when he/she is ready. Congratulations on the upcoming baby!

  • Anything is possible. If your Dr stripped your membrains then you will probably go early. You can always walk and walk to help speed up labor. Good luck to you

  • I was dialated at 35 wks and my MW considered me to be at a high risk for pre-term labor and guess what? She was born at 42w 2d!

  • well i was 1cm then 2 since 38 weeks and she was soooo low that he thought i could go before my due date. Well i did not.. i was 41 weeks and 3 days when i delivered so the baby may come early but you never know.. not for me tho and she was so low that i only pused 45 min and it was my first.

  • I don't think your crazy...just stay prepared for him to come early, but know that there is still a chance he won' might be mother's instinct and it might just be you hoping he comes a little earlier so you can get it over with...either way just stay prepared for him...
