This is my second pregnancy, My first was twins who were induced at 36 weeks due to one being way bigger than the other, I had an epidural before my contractions ever started because of the induction. Now, with this one I've had contractions since 28 weeks, I just went to my 37 week appt and he said I am 60% effaced 2 cm Dilated and at a -2......does that mean she is coming soon? If so how soon, hours..days...weeks??? I have no idea what to think right now....ugh

I was 70% effaced and 3cm from 30 weeks until 2 weeks past my due date for my first.

For my second I was barely 1 cm dilated at 36 weeks so I procrastinated. Didn't set anything up thinking he'd be late too. He came at 38 weeks. My water broke the day after Christmas and the first thing I said was "damn. You knew I wasn't ready yet..." lol

well there is no telling how soon it could be but things are starting. my doc wanted me to push at 10 cm so you only have 8 more to go!
