38 weeks 6 days, baby today?? adult content

Had my doctor appointment yesterday, I am 3 cm dilated, 85% effaced. We were going to strip my membranes but when she went to do it my doctor noticed there "were no membranes to strip". I have been having low dull back pain all night, and when I woke up this morning my discharge looked like how the very end of your period would be; like a light brownish. So do youthink labor is soon???

  • No way to know, hun. You'll go into labor when you go into labor- likely within the next 3 weeks! =) I've had women dilated to 4, or even 6 cm for weeks before finally delivering.

  • This makes me think that I'll keep my baby in me another 7-8 weeks (i'm 34 wks)! LOL I don't even think my baby has dropped yet....and my doc said my cervix is still tight and closed up....
