I am currently 36 weeks and 3 days pregnant. Had a doctor visit yesterday and after the exam he said I was 40% effaced and 1cm dilated! I'm really excited about this because with my 2 previous pregnancies, I didn't start thinning/dilating til after my due date, when they started trying to induce me. Has me really hopeful that this time I will go into labor on my own! :D
I don't know if its because I found out that things are starting to move along, or if its intuition that things are changing. Since yesterday I feel more crampy and having more contractions, feeling really hungry constantly and also really tired, couldn't keep my eyes open this morning even though I slept good last night. Is it my imagination or are things kicking into a new gear? I've never gone through this before, never gone into labor on my own before, anyone else feeling this way?
