How dilated/effaced are you & are you feeling contractions?


I am almost 36 weeks preggo, currently 5cm dilated, almost 100% effaced... and I still can’t feel contractions. I’ve felt cramping but not contractions. Baby is also super low. My doctor & everyone else who keeps checking me are surprised my water hasn’t broken at this point. I’m getting anxious that this baby is going to be half out of my yoohoo by the time I feel something.

How far dilated/effaced are you currently & have you felt contractions? If you’ve already had the baby or your water has broken, how far dilated/effaced were you when you decided to go in for a check?
