I just came home from my 36 week Dr. Appointment and my Dr. had to measure my belly twice and then when he did his internal exam he told me that I was 1cm dilated and 50% effaced. My Dr. also did a membrane sweep and told me that it was okay to have my baby now and then gave me the rules. I am confused could I go into labor soon or is this just to help me dilate a little faster. I just thought that it was weird that he measured my belly twice with a weird look and then when he did the exam he mixed things up and told me the rules of when to go to the hospital. Please comment I haven`t go my bag ready and I have not gotten everything that I need done done.
