We also got our car seat inspected and installed by the fire department. I plan on taking it out until we get a little closer but at least I know what to do now.
At the doctor this week I had to get the Strep B test. She also checked me again and we were both surprised to find that I have dilated to 3cm! She said this still could still mean nothing and I could make it to 40 weeks but with my body continuing to progress she doubts it will happen. 37 weeks is still the goal for a full-term baby. Considering it took me 3 weeks to dilate 2 more centimeters I’m not really concerned but I need to make sure we are ready at home.
Here is a side by side comparison of the changes over the past 30 weeks. That was me at only 5 weeks and now me at 35 weeks.
