Hi ladies, hope everyone is well!! So I went to the dr today (i'll be 37 weeks tomorrow) and of course they checked me down there, anyways, my dr advised that I haven't dilated nor has she dropped either. She wants me to walk an hour everyday from today on non-stop. Is this normal?? Should I be worried?
Please help!!! Thank yOU!
I personally don't place a lot of trust in those examinations. I have a friend who went in last week and was dilated four centimeters, with the bag of waters bulging out and she STILL hasn't gone into labor. Then there's the people who aren't dilated at all and they could still go into labor the next day. Everyone's different, you definitely shouldn't worry.
I wouldn't worry a bit about it. The times I haven't been dilated are the times I went into labor naturally. On a couple of my babies I was dilated to a 4 starting at 36 weeks and had to be induced after my due date. It really doesn't matter how much you are dilated in my opinion.
