Moving along
I think I may be right about Carter's early arrival. I had an OB visit this morning & was checked. Since the trip to labor & delivery on Friday night, there's been some progress. Not a lot, but some. Before the weekend, I was a finger tip dilated (whatever that's really supposed to mean - less than a centimeter, I guess). Carter, while head down, was still kind of high & so was my cervix.

Now, I'm 1 to 1.5cm's dilated, 70% effaced & Carter is low. Low enough that I'm measuring small again & need to go in for another ultrasound on Thursday just to make sure there's not a decrease in fluid. He either needs to come before the 5th or after the 15th. My OB is going on vacation on the 5th & I'm going out for dinner for Moms Night Out on the 15th (Melting Pot! YUM!). I've got a sinking suspicion that he's probably going to be born somewhere in there though.

Holy Crap! It's crunch time!!!!

Wow! 70% effaced?! I went into full blown labor and when I was admitted I was 100% effaced but only dialated 1cm. So....it could happen soon! Exciting! I am thinking he will come between the 1st and the 5th...I hope you are feeling good!!

Wow holy crap is right!! How far along are you now? And when was your due date? Sorry, too lazy to go back through your posts to find out. lol

I feel like you're going to be early, but I'm not sure by how much... I keep thinking 1-2 weeks but that could be my own wishful thinking about myself. :\
