Baby's head is low - can someone please explain
Hi, I was told at my last u/s (on 3/15) that my cervix is closed but my baby's head is low. The nurse did a cervical. What does this mean. Am I going to go into labor soon ? I don't look like I have dropped as yet. Can somone please explain this to me ? Thanks
That is normal and good that the baby's head is low. It is supposed to be low at this stage in your pregnancy. If your cervix is closed then you won't go into labor soon. When you start dialating around 3 or 4 is when you will begin labor.
My baby's head has been low too even before I started dialating. I was dialated 1cm last Monday.
