I had a normal check-up with one of my midwives yesterday. I had told her in passing that I had already started having sharp painful contractions occasionally. She in return asked if I had wanted her to check my progression, and of course I said "yes please!"
Who knew I would already be 1 cm dialated and 80% effaced! This doesn't necessarily mean I will have the baby early. Many women walk around 1-3cm dialated for some time without going into labor. So, my hopes are not up for a sooner D-Day, but I am certainly encouraged that my body is in pain for good reason! Yeah! Who knows, maybe Rowen will be a bit early! My skin sure hopes so! :)
Thanking God for His Care!
