I had my 36 week appt and had my strep B screen done today. She also checked my cervix for the first time, which was uncomfortable just until she was done. She said that I was not dilated at all and my cervix was still thick and is still posterior. As I know that I am still 4 weeks away from my due date, I was a little dissapointed that I have not dilated any. For the past 5 days I have had multiple BH contrax and felt more pressure in my pelvic region. I have not "dropped" yet, and I guess this is when your cervix begins to dilate?? Any others that had similar news at their 36 week appt? At week 37 was their any progression? We really want to do this all naturally and have no plan on induction, but my husband would also like the tax break as I am due 3 days before the new year!
