This is a picture of a very happy chubby pregnant lady. We’re officially “early term” at 37 weeks, and my doctor confirmed that the baby has dropped and that I hadn’t imagined it! I am 1 cm dilated and 50% effaced. So progress has definitely started, and I’m thrilled to know what is going on. Time to be on alert for labor to start! The only bad news is that I’m positive for group B strep so I have to get IV antibiotics during labor. But that’s not the end of the world!
