I am officially 4 days away from my due date, at my last appointment on the 16th I was 60% effaced and 1.5 cm dilated... My dr decided it was time to sweep the membranes.. friggin OUCH... she told me it can happen at any time now and to be prepared... I am really getting nervous about laboring... and I am terrified that I wont know when it is real. Every web site, family or friend says , you will know... and you are told all of the "ways" to know... Frankly... I have thought I was in labor 3+ times now because it felt like everyone and everything said it was going to feel like. Yet not in labor. Starting to feel like it may never come! I just want to meet my little man!
