I am 36 weeks pregnant and at minus two...What does that mean?

No worries.: It means that the baby's head has not yet applied well to your pelvis - which is a good thing (head feels like it is ~2 centimeters above your ischial spines, which is the base of your bony pelvis). Keep up with all your prenatal care appointments - and best of luck! ...Read more

Don't rush: Mother nature will take care of your effacement when the baby is ready. You still have another month to go, so be patient. The longer baby stays inside, the better.
