Me, obviously I am due on Tuesday, 3 more days....as of last Tuesday, mw said I was 3 cm dilated and very soft, but my cervix was still quite long and I was still carrying high. Over the past couple of days, I've been losing big pieces of the mucus plug, but they're not bloody yet - just, well, mucusy (LOL, sorry!) Having some contractions, but nothing really painful and nothing regular or timeable. Just getting really impatient!!!
Not sure if anyone saw my post about this, but I had a u/s for a fluid check the other day since the baby wasn't moving as much as usual, and the fluid was fine but they noted that the placenta was already showing calcifications. Anyone know if that's normal (I was only 39 weeks at that point)? I always thought that happens when you're overdue, not really before, but I could be wrong. Anyway, because of my thyroid issues, it looks like the longest my mw will let me push it is Friday or Saturday, so I keep telling myself I have, at most, just 1 more week to wait! I really DON'T want to be induced though, so I hope she comes on her own before then....
How about the rest of you - who is still around and how are you feeling??

I'm getting really excited and I feel ready!!!
I am feeling better than some it seems, but I know a lot of that is due to the fact that I officially finished all things work-related on Thursday, so Friday was spent just relaxing and letting it soak in that I was really done, and today I woke with nothing I HAD to do, which is a feeling I haven't had in a while. So I am feeling good because of that.
As of my last appt I was 1 wimpy cm but 50% effaced and "ripe" which I think means a soft cervix? Anyway, please cross your fingers for me that I go sometime this week, anytime this week, otherwise I have to be induced...
no plug, no show, strong BH and downward pressure, cervical twinges & stabs, a few practice cntx
