Back from the midwife with good news! I am now 4cm dilated (holy crap!), 80% effaced, and Nessy is at +1 station. After lying down and lifting up my shirt so she could measure me, she said “Look how much your baby has dropped!!” See the below fetal descent station illustration….he has already made a good portion of the journey already. +1! We are so excited!
Our little man is ready to enter this world. She told us I could go into labour any minute, and to be prepared that the contractions will START close together, probably around 5 mins apart. Apparently my body has already done some great set-up work! Woo hoo! We booked an appointment for Monday morning just in case he decides to be stubborn, but after we scheduled the appt she said “don’t worry, you won’t see me then.” She’s pretty confident labour will start within the next few hours or days. We’re having a baby soon folks!
