It's official - I've "dropped"

Last night at yoga class we used dowels for our exercises. They are basically just long skinny sticks. Laura had us hold them at each end over our heads with our legs spread apart (so we looked like X's), then bring them down to our hips with our elbows locked. Well, everyone else's dowels went down to their hips, but mine got stuck at my belly button! Even the girl that was due today made it over her belly.

At first I thought that I just had freakishly short arms, but then Laura looked around and said that you could tell who had dropped by where their dowels were - and I was the only one like that. So, I was the freak, but kind of in a good way! Baby's on it's way down and out I guess.

I've also been getting some "twinges" the last few days. TMI, but it feels like the baby is scratching at my cervix. Not very pleasant. Charlotte and Laura says this is what it feels like when your cervix starts to thin out - called effacement. Don't get excited though, it doesn't mean anything in terms of labor! I just like to know that my body is doing all the right things.
