I found out on tuesday that i'm 1.5cm dilated and 75% of my cervix has thinned. I've been having braxton hicks a lot. Around 11:30 today until 1:00pm I was having real contractions yet not regular. The only thing I want to do is sleep today.

Does anyone think the baby can be coming soon???

Some people never get them-- like me!!! (or actually I might be having them the last couple of days although I don;t feel them, only know cause they were showing up on the moniter at the hosp.)

but you can start getting them anytime from 20 weeks on but most people won't feel them for a while. My doc also told me if I was having more than 5 a day before 36 weeks of pregnancy to go to the hosp.

oh I see, what do they feel like i'm 26 weeks and latley in the mornings i've been having stomach aches/cramps and I don't know what it is.. It almost feels like my stomach is streching (which it is) I asked my Dr. And he said that it was normal to get stomach aches... Also I went to the Dr. Today and when he did that tape measure thing it is the same as last week when I went.. Before it was measuring one week bigger now it's right on so I dont' know all to confusing for me.. I just cant' wait to see my baby and get him out of me lol

lex!!! I didn't know you came here. I do but not too often anymore.
I have not been over to castle's today so I didn't know this until now!! Your cervix being that thin is a good thing and I feel your baby will be here soon. How far along are you as of today? Were your contractions painful? I'm betting you have this baby by monday. ;o)


ya but j, she's only 36 weeks and 2 days right now.

bah! I was measuring 3 weeks more. I was measuring at 41 weeks at my 38 week check up. And idon;t know whatthey feel like as I haven't felt them! Your cramps are probably just cramps. Your stomach will get really hard with braxton hicks. And at 26 weeks I highly doubt you'd feel them.

I wouldn't say they were that painful.... But very uncomfortable it was like a burning cramp.... But when it's going to be the real real thing i'm sure i'll know :)
