Ok, so I know in the long run it's really up to Dominic when he decides to make his arrival. These numbers don't mean much to him - BUT since I got the info from my midwife I thought I would share and get some opinions/predictions.

Humor me!

Ok so as of last week (got checked then- just remembered to ask for the info today ) per my midwifes notes:

1cm dialated
60% effaced
baby at -1 station
cervix is ripe, soft and stretchy.

She also mentioned that he was "pretty low for being so far from my due date" and that it was "really good".

So- what do you think?

btw- I am in NO hurry! Although everyone else seems to be rushing me and ready for him to come RIGHTNOW I'm ok with waiting till he is good and ready. I'm just asking for fun.

ETA- Other helpful information- I have been measuring several weeks ahead almost the whole pregnancy. I am 37 weeks measuring 43 cm. today. M/w estimates him to already be over 8 lbs.

Lol... really want my prediction? Are you suuuuuuuuure?

I say youll make it to 41 wks 3 days

Just for the simple fact that all the signs seem to point to things that make people say "youll never make it to your due date!". Those are the babies that tend to take their time. AND - youre a first time mommy to boot lol.

My 1st was 6 days early. With my second - I was 2 cm dilated, 60% effaced, and HUGE at 30 weeeks! By 38 weeks, I was 3 cm dilated, 70% effaced, carried low ( i have a low pubic bone too), and STILL humongous. I delivered her 8 days late lol.

I remember goign for a 4d u/s at 28 weeks and the tech couldnt even get a good shot of her face b/c her head was behind my pubic bone. Everyone swore Id never make it to my due date, even my MW. Then - she not only came late, but was smaller than most expected. My MW is pretty good at her guesstimates, and she thought for sure we were looking at almost 9 lbs lol. 8 lbs 6 ozs, though!
