Things are speeding up

So I went to the doctor today. I had the strep B swab, and you know, it wasn't bad at all. It just felt like a regular exam. Then she said I was already 3 cm dilated and 70% effaced. She explained that this was good and meant my labor would be fast and easy. She said I would be 6 cm dilated by the time I went to the hospital. She said to stay within 30 minutes of the hospital and that the only mistake I could make would be waiting too long...in other words, come in ASAP as soon as the contractions are either:

1) painful *or*
2) fairly close together.

She said she tells everybody else to wait till the contractions are 5 minutes apart, but not me.

I feel so special :)

I hope she's right...fast and easy would be good!

Oh, and the busybodies who said I've dropped were apparently right. The doctor said I've dropped a little.

Who knew the busybodies could be right? ;)

Good luck to you through labor and beyond. I'm sure you will do exceedingly well. (and I can't wait to see PICTURES!!!)

How exciting! It's so strange "observing" this all from a distance. It seems like it was just days ago you were blogging in your non-pregnant state.. It's all happening quickly for me too!

After reading this, everyone's going to wonder if you're in labor when you miss a day of blogging. :)
