Way to make me lose my concentration!

I had to ask a few questions of the nurse at the doctor's office. She just called me back and asked why I wasn't in labor already.

"I don't know. Should I be?"

She said that on Friday, in addition to being 4 cm which the doctor told me about, I was also 90% effaced and at 0 station. Gulp...

*for those of you unfamiliar with the whole labor progress thing, here's some information on effacement and dilation and information on stations.

Oh, and my GBS came back negative.

She said to watch the contractions and that the ones I had last night were just false labor ones.

So, anybody want to start a moneyless pool as to when I'll pop?

Post your guess in the comments and we'll see who gets the closest to Little Pebble's birthday.

And now I'm supposed to do work and stuff?!?

Oh my goodness! Your little one is definately going be to be here soon!

My guess is Friday, Jan 27th as well.

My dr always says that it's the regularity of the contractions that tells you you're in labor. The real ones may not even hurt like the ones you had this weekend, but they'll come every couple minutes.

Can't wait to hear the big news!
