I had my first "check" today....she said I am 2-3 cm dilated, 80% effaced and the head is in the 0 position and engaged...she was surprised since I am a FTM and only 37 weeks, though my uterus was measuring one week ahead but she said that those measurements are as accurate towards the end. I know this could mean nothing and I could still go a week overdue...but it is still awesome to know that my body, and baby, are preparing for labor and delivery! I am sorta freaking out though because DH always works straight days, but starting sunday-thurs he is working 6pm-6am...I know that I likely won't go into labor next week, but first of all I hate to sleep alone...but I will panic if I wake up in labor and hei s not here and I have to try to hunt him down at the plant he works at!
Anyone else get checked recently? If so, how many weeks are you, how dilated, how effaced, and what position is the head?
