My EDD is tomorrow -
I woke up this morning at 5am with contractions every 5 minutes. I was told not to call in until I can't breathe through them. I couldn't sleep, but I could breathe. I had my weekly appointment today so I just waited to see what he said when I went in. When they checked me I am 100% effaced and 1cm dilated... I'm not sure if that means if I am very close to labor since I am 100% effaced. My BP was 136/90 and I am super swollen. They hooked me up to monitors to do a stress test - they said baby looked great according to that, but wanted to have me get an US done. We went down and had one done - baby got all points except for trying out his/her lungs.. The tech said baby looked great. I go back in on Monday and OB will decide what he wants done then with me. I have been experiencing a lot of nausea and headaches as well.
I also think the tech slipped when checking out the baby on the Ultrasound... She said, "this is her arching her back." We had the same tech at our 20 week U/S and she said she refers everything to "he" because she has boys at home. I think she may have slipped since we are TEAM GREEN! But it could have just been something she said as well...
How close am I if I am 100% effaced? but only 1 cm dilated? I am a FTM and not sure how this whole effacement vs. dilation works!!
