So Disappointed

I had my 37 week check-up today and I am still 2 cm dilated and 50% effaced!! Same as last week. I thought with all my contractions and pressure I have been having I would be a bit more. I know he is going to come when he is ready, I am so sick of the pain right now.  I am so impatient!!!!

I'm sorry.  I know it's hard to be patient when you want to meet your little one so bad!

whispers **this is why cervical checks are pointless.....they just give you a reason to dwell on measurements that aren't ANY indication of what's to come!**

Nevermind all that. It could happen any time. You're right, it WILL happen when he's ready. But your dilation and effacement have nothing to do with when that might be. So don't be disappointed!. Just put it out out of your mind because it's totally irrelevant!

 Yes, I have never had cervical checks with my last two and now that I am having them with this one I have no patience lol.

Hang in there, I was .5cm for weeks and then jumped to 3 out of no where and just kept going from there.

I was 2cm in early labor ... 24 hours later I was holding my baby : )  Dilation doesn't mean much!
