Thanks everyone.

At the moment I am 35.5 weeks, but by my next appointment (next week) I will be 36.5 weeks. I am just curious to see if I have started dilating or if effacement has begun yet...I know even if they have it doesnt mean that labour will start anytime soon...but I'm just sooo ready to get this lil boy out! I am also starting to feel a lot of pressure in my pelvis and the top of my thighs. My OB was doing fundal measurements and said he was a big baby so he sent me to have a scan to confrim and sure enough he is measuring a week and 5 days bigger than what he should at this stage. And I know that even his bigger size doesnt necessarily mean he will come early either!!
