I am 36 weeks today baby is measuring 2 weeks ahead on ultrasound and has been since 13 weeks. I went to the dr. today and I am 80% effaced baby is at +1 and I am dilated 1cm. I have been having contractions all day but they have gotten more painful as the day has gone by but they are irregular... can I still dilate or does it have to be regular contractions??? This whole labor thing is new to me...this is my third child but I had c-sections with both of my previous children and no labor. I am already scheduled for a section with this baby but even my doctor said today that he doesn't think I will make it to the scheduled date in 2 1/2 weeks but didn't give an estimate of how long he thought it would be.
**and by the contractions being irregular I mean that I might have 2 contractions that are 8 minutes apart then another one 10 minutes later then another 5 minutes later then 15 minutes or more till the next one... or atleast that is how tonight has went.
