Dilated & effaced!

Not by much... but its progress! The OB said she could touch my baby's head! so cool :) & means I'm getting closer. I'm about .5cm (maybe a little more) dilated and 20% effaced, which I know is so small, but its something.  I went yesterday thinking my water broke and they said it was probably my mucus plug causing watery discharge and today I had a regular appointment, but they did another internal since I told them my underwear were soaked 3 more times today! I could have sworn it was my water. I'm excited now, but during my appointment all I wanted to do was cry... I dont know why I was sooo emotional.  I think I'm just very ready to meet my little one.

You're totally entitled to be emotional, it's normal at this stage. I cried alot towards the end of my last pg!

Congrats, you're gonna meet your baby so soon!

Progress is progress. Cheer for that! Remember you can go from nothing to full blown labor in no time. You are totally allowed to a roller coaster of emotions. This one wild ride and your close to the end.
