  • It pretty much means that the baby has dropped. but he will come when he wants to. he may come early, but he may not. I have a friend who is almost 39 weeks, the baby dropped a week and a half ago, she is 3cm dialated, and 80% ephaced. They told her last week it would happen in the next 48 hours. Still no baby.

  • yeah he very will could be coming sometime soon or it could be a few more weeks. with his head pushing on you like that it might cause you to dilate, but babies come when they are good and ready to and when we least want them to. trust me on that one lol. good luck

  • It is definitely not a predictor! IF this is your first pregnancy it could be weeks. If this is 2nd or more, then it may indicate he is getting ready. Good luck.
