36 weeks and 3-4 cm dilated!

I just got back from my 36 week appointment and I am between 3-4 cm dilated... With my first pregnancy I was 3 cm dilated at my 37 week appointment and went into labor that night. I really hope that this little one holds out 1 more week! 

I also got the results for my Step B test.. it came back positive :(   I know I will have to get antibiotics before I deliver.  Has anyone gotten a positive Strep B test? How did labor go? Was your baby okay? I'm trying not to worry about it.

Thanks  :)

Congrats mama! Sounds like it could be any day! (but i'll pray you hold on another week) ...I was 4-5cm with my second for about 2 weeks and then at my last apt. my doctor "stretched" me out and I went into labor that night. I don't know about the strep thing so here's a bump

I was 4 cm at 28 weeks and I held on to my son until 38 weeks! I had group b and although this was my first child I don't think it affected it at all, as matter of fact I don't believe I took both dosages before I delivered and my son was fine.

Wow! You are so lucky! I wish I was that far along already. I am getting checked next week at my 37 week appoinment to see where I'm at and it would be nice if I was dilated some :)

i was dilated 3 cm at 38 weeks with my first and i also tested positive for the group b strep. my son is fine, they would just bring u into the hospital a little earlier than normal instead of calling the doc when they are 5 mins apart you got earlier so you can get all of the antibiotics before you have the baby. once you have the antiboitics its fine.

I am SO jeolous! I had my 39 week appointment today and I was 1 cm dilated and 50 effaced. THAN he told me that he wouldn't consider inducing me till after 42 weeks! I also tested positive and everybody keeps telling me they had it and had a healthy baby. Just have to have antibiotics

Thanks for all the responses.. it sounds like Strep B is pretty common and I shouldn't worry.  Now to finish getting my hospital bag together..ugh I am such a procrastinator!

Congrats your baby will be here soon!  No never had strep B before.  In 2 weeks I do get checked for this baby.  I'm ready to find out if I'm dilated or not.  I was at 2cm with my 1st and 3cm with my 2nd.  It's been 5 years so I don't know if that will make a difference or not.  I hope not.  I'm hoping to be dilated so when time comes I can get my membranes stripped and hopefully get labor going.  It worked with my last.  Well good luck on everything!

I was 3-4 at 21 weeks and NO sighs of labor.  I was induced at 36w1d because they were worried about my son's health. He was perfectly healthy and spent only 8 days in the step down nursery because he couldn't maintain his temp.

My friend tested positive with all 3 of her pregnancies.  Her deliveries went fine and her babies had no problems.
