    I could be wrong but pretty sure it's a sign of your body gearing up for labour- not long now

    Thanks ladies
    I forgot to add he also said i had an average pelvis. Can't find the answer to that one anywhere.. Does anyone know?
    Perhaps it will be fine for me to have a vb?

    I had that at 39 weeks, DD was born 2 weeks later at 41 weeks. It's a good sign, your body is getting ready.

    It just means ur body is gearing up for labour! Ur cervix softens, shorten and dialates and it comes down! Can't predict when labour will happen but ur body is gearing up for it! I'm assuming by the term "average pelvis" means the size which prolly means the baby will be able to fit through nicely depending on the size! Therefore lessening ur chances for the need for a c-sect
