33 weeks dilated..

So I went to my 33 week recheck today.. I had been having contractions but nothing that is constant. Obviously.

Well my midwife decided that she wanted to check me bc of the contractions and she said that I was 1cm and 50% effacement. She said that my cervix is very soft. She also stated that she didn't see me going to my due date.
But apparently my belly is measuring bigger than what it is supposed to and at my elective u/s the tech said he was measuring 2 weeks ahead. >
So my midwife is ordering an u/s at the next appt in 2 weeks so she can see the size of this little man.

Anyone else having a boy and he started measuring early all of a sudden?
Zaysmama responded:
I am 33weeks and that also been having contractions. My little man was measuring normal for the EDD at 20 weeks, but I have a feeling he has sky rocketted since then. Not sure but I think I have started to lose my mucus plug today and I have an appt on tuesday. The dr isnt supposed to check me but I think I am going to request it because of these things. I am planning to leave for vacation tuesday evening following my appt, but I guess that will depend on what the dr says. I don't want to get 10hours away and have a premie that may have to stay longer!... ... hoping they just tell me I am a hypochondract and to enjoy my vacation but this pregnancy has been way different from my last (both boys)...

amg0926 replied to amg0926's response:

Zaysmama replied to amg0926's response:
sounds like your body is moving right along! Any new progress?

the dr wasn't in last week so I saw a NP and she didn't check me. I have an appt with the dr tomorrow and I should def be checked then. Hopefully he's on his way!

and when is your actual due date?
