I had my 36 week check yesterday and the dr was shocked by how low the baby is...asked if I was having a lot of pressure. I am having some but nothing unbearable. I am 1 cm and 50% effaced. She said that I am full term on Tues so baby is welcome to make arrival anytime after that day. Maybe I should at least pack bags soon!!

Hardly any BH for me or at least I don't notice them. When I went in to be induced for my son, I was 4 cm and having regular contractions according to the monitor but I wasn't noticing them or having any pain. I am hoping that I can make lots of pain free progress again this time!

Yes pain free is awesome. With DD my water broke and I was having contractions and I didn't realize it. This time around when I have contractions I can feel the pressure and I can feel it in my chest! Its really weird, kinda takes my breath away
