So, I'm 37 weeks and 5 days pregnant with my second baby! My c-section is a week and three days away (May 4th). While I'm throughly enjoying the last bit of what may be my last pregnancy, I'm also a bit excited and anxious to meet our new little guy. Even though I'm having a c-section, party of the excitement is the waiting game and seeing my body progress towards labor. Speaking of which, I have been 50% effaced for a couple of weeks. Yesterday, my OB said I was 1 cm dilated. I've been having non-painful contractions for months, but they have become more intense and sometimes even painful/crampy feeling. Until today I didn't think that baby had dropped, but now I'm wondering. Baby seems to be resting more on my lap when I sit down, I can hardly pee, and my mother thinks my belly looks lower. So, who knows. Maybe I won't make it to my c-section date. What do you guys think? Any old wives tales or predictions? I've heard that you body goes through these changes closer to labor with a non-first pregnancy.
