ok so i went to the doctor today, and i told her that the top of my stomach has been getting really hard and really hurting so she checked my cervix. im 34 weeks, and she said it was still closed but 1/3 shorter than it was last week. what does this mean?????????? am i ahead of schedule, behind schedule, on time what? does it mean hes making his way out soon? im so confused.

You should have asked before you left the dr.

That is a sign that is rippening for delivery. It is a good sign and it seems right on time. I wouldn't worry.

i did ask her and i never got a straightforward answer. she was too worried about there being hypertension. which is another thing im not sure of what it is, all i know is that its high blood pressure. but if im right where i should be then is it normal to loose 1/3 of the normal size in a week?
