Does this mean I'm close?
I just got back from the doctor, and he said that my cervix is 80% effaced, and a finger tip dialated, but my cervix is still high. I am almost 36 weeks. He said next week they will strip my membranes. With my last child I never dialated or anything until I went into labor. I know people can be 1-2 centimeters dialated for a week or more, but if I'm already 80% effaced, does that mean labor could be fast approaching? And I'm also confused as to how my cervix is so thinned, if it's still so high. Any advice, or answers would be great.
