...I was told not to stray too far from the hospital. I am now almost 3 cm dilated and 75% effaced, with the baby's head low in my pelvis (that I could have told the doc myself). Either I'm headed into labor soon (with a second preterm baby) or I am going to have the longest 5-6 weeks of my life. Knowing that my body is getting ready to deliver this baby makes me more anxious for her arrival, even though I know that women can walk around for weeks and weeks dilated and effaced. Anyone else in the same boat?
