Dilated to 1 and 1/2 and 60% Effaced

A few years ago if you would have said the words "dilated to a 1 and 1/2 and 60% effaced", I would have thought you were speaking some NASA rocket science language. Now after nearly 9 months of pregnancy and all the books and classes, I am officially fluent in pregnant lingo. So as of last weeks appointment, my wife has started to dilate and was at 1 and 1/2 and 60% effaced. Tomorrow we go in again to see if things have progressed at all, or if they are just kind of staying that way. Our due date is officially April 2nd, but my wife has been having some serious conversations with the little guy in her belly and she thinks he shouldn't wait that long. She told me the two of them have agreed on sometime next week. I am really just the third party in all of this, so I have no say on how it all goes down, but I am interested to see if they are right about next week!!! I can say, however, that I am hoping the wife's water breaks when we are out somewhere, kind of like you see in the movies. Maybe at the grocery store or when we are out to eat. I know this is highly unlikely, but wouldn't it be cool??

Lol! Thanks for the update. I did NOT hope my water broke some where! Hang in there, it'll be soon! To be honest, I was dilated to a 3 and 80% effaced for a month. I know, shouldn't tell you that, but I wish someone would have told me! I can't wait to see pics! These last few appts are sooo fun b/c you are waiting to hear about progress! I never wanted to get undressed more than I did those last few weeks.

I am so jealous. This is not supposed to happen with a first baby. I have had three and it has never happened to me. I hope the water breaks somewhere fun too. I always wanted mine to break that way. It gives more excitement to the whole process. I am very excited for you, you are going to be in heaven

You crack me up! But my water did break while I was teaching school and I was really disappointed. I too thought it would be awesome like the movies and boy was I in for a let down. Really I thought I peed my pants because it is just a slow drip. I am so excited for you both, your little guy is going to be so cute! Tell Liz to hang in there.
