Thinning Cervix
The doctor says my cervix is thinning.  I'm only 33 weeks. Does that mean the baby is coming soon? did this happen to anyone else?

This can be completely normal especially if this is not a first pregnancy. Mine thinned out early with both pregnancies. But I didn't actually go into preterm labor until the last.  Then, when I got off bedrest and meds never went into labor on my own for either. I had to have my membranes ruptured by the dr. I was dilated 4-5 cms with the 1st and 8 with the 2nd with 90%effacement(thinning). Don't worry too much about it, in all actuality, a baby born at 36 weeks(jsut 3 weeks away) has a great chance of being a ok. Best wishes, tmv

I am 33 weeks and 2 days with my second child and I went to my appt today and my doctor said that my cervix is thinning. I have been having lots of contractions for the last 3-4 days so I am a little worried but my doctor didn't tell me how much I am thinning. This did not happen with my son who is now 2 1/2 so maybe someone can help me better understand whats going on with me
