1cm dilated :)

Currently 38 weeks but found out I was 1 cm dilated when I was 37weeks , but It's a start! Not long until this big boy is ready to join us in the world and let me hold him! Aahhhhhhh I'm so excited!!!! How long from this time does it usually take to start dilating more?? I'm kinda nervous yet excited yet scared and sad cause I wish he can just stay in my belly forever so I can protect him in there lol but also I can't wait to see him grow!
