Yes, I had my 36 week appointment today and I am officially 2 cm dilated and 50% effaced.
While I realize this doesn't necessarily mean anything...
It means a lot for me.
One week before Annelise was due, I was only 1 cm dilated, 70% effaced and showing no signs of going anywhere, anytime soon.
Even after being induced and in labor for 12 hours, I only ever dilated to a 4.
So, the fact that 4 weeks before I'm due, my body is beginning to work on its own is very encouraging. Especially considering our decision to try for a VBAC this time around.
Tonight, I get to enjoy a serious chick flick with my hubby (sans daughter)! We're going to see "The Time Traveler's Wife" and I'm so excited to enjoy a few hours of time with Matthew.
Here's to the first weekend since school started, gestational dilation and salty popcorn at the movie theater!
