  • what's your question?

    #1 you are only 38 weeks. EDD are just an estimate.

    #2 it's normal procedure to check at every visit at this stage.

    #3 just because you aren't dilated today doesn't mean you won't be at the next visit. It takes time! you don't just go from 0-10 cm in an hour. (OK some do but it's rare!)

  • Get a yoga ball and bounce on that, it will help baby to engage and drop into your pelvis. Start walking too, but remember you can easily go 40-42 weeks. My oldest didnt drop till I was 40 weeks and I had him at 41 weeks.
