Hello everyone, I just got back from the doctor and she told me I am 1centimeter dialated and 50% effaced. She said she does not think I will go into labor this week but she cannot predict past that. Does this mean I will have the baby soon? My due date isnt until 6/11. This is my second baby and I did not dialate early with my first pregnancy at all.

Especially eHealthy
I had my baby 2 1/2 weeks before her estimated due date. She was due on may 7 and came on april 22. Though she was smaller than she would've been, she was perfectly healthy. She weighed 6lbs 8oz. She made a month today and now weighs 8lbs. 6oz!! She's definately a heffer!!

Your angel will be fine!! If you want to keep her in a little longer, avoid strenious things like sex and lifting heavy things.

Are you getting an .Epidural or going drug free? I went drug free and she's my 1st. It was the best experience of my life!!
I can't wait to see your angel!!

Good .Luck!
Sarah

I am definitely having an epidural! I had one the first ime as well. Call me a chicken, I know but I dont really have a high tolerance for pain. I am getting axious because I didnt do this with the first pregnancy. I know each one is different but it's making me a little nervous.
