I went to the doctor yesterday. The doctor checked me and said I was dilated to a one!!! I'm pretty ecstatic! (To everyone that wants to leave a comment at this point that says something to the extent of "Yeah but it could be another 3 weeks before you actually have it..." Please don't. I will only want to punch you. Don't burst the bubble of excitement!) I've been having contractions (mostly painless ones aka braxton hicks) on and off but they are actually the reason for my progress. I forgot to ask the doctor what percentage I've effaced but he did say he could feel the head. I'm assuming that means it's sitting pretty low. Though I have a hard time believing that when it stretches and I suddenly can no longer breathe. I think the baby is uncomfortable now... I keep telling it that if it wants to stretch it has to come out first to do so and until then it'll have to be happy with the fetal position. It's not listening very well. Must be the Preston in it, ha ha!
