Labor Countdown?

I had my 36th week doctor's appointment yesterday and it seems that my doctor thinks it's best that I don't work past Friday of this week at the office. Thankfully, I saw this coming and spoke to my manager. She's kindly offered to allow me to work from home for a couple of weeks until I actually have the baby.

So it seems that as of yesterday, I was already 3 cm dilated and 70% effaced. I was surprised to hear about the 3 cm since 4 cm is considered active labor. My MIL was more concerned about the fact that I was 70% effaced already. Who knows how long I'll walk around like this. I wouldn't mind if the baby waited at least til next weekend (or after) so my parents will be around and J's birthday will have gone by. Damn it, I want both his parents to be 30 when he's born. I have given up on the idea of a June baby though. He'll come when he needs to come.

In case anyone is wondering, he's considered a very healthy size and my time is considered just fine. He'll be 6.5 pounds approximately by the end of this week and if he's triggering my body's readiness, he's obviously ready and waiting to pop out on his own. It's kinda cute how ecstatic my doctors are with my body's progress. Even though they decided to induce me by my due date, it's a lot more ideal for the baby and delivery as a whole if I go into labor naturally before then.

Anyway, I may have more time to update starting next week when I actually am working from home. But then again, I may not have much to say. No worries though, you'll be updated when the baby actually pops out very soon.

That's a nice size already! Both mine were under that and they both top 6 feet now that they are all growed up!
