I haven't had any checks by the OB but last time *I* checked I was around 3 cms so I'm assuming I'm probably the same, I'm mentally prepared for a February baby so I'm not consenting to checks (unless I go into labor before) until I'm 40 weeks (2 more weeks) Other than that, I put the bags for me and baby in the back of the car so that's one last thing we have to remember to do.

The only thing I'm hoping is whenever I do go into labor, I'm hoping that I will have washed DD#2's diapers that day or the day before. I'm the only one that does the diaper laundry (and I know hubby doesn't want to touch it and MIL would do it if needed, and I wrote directions since I have my wash routine) and if need be we have a big enough stash to last until I got home (if I was there a max of 24-48 hrs)... but I could totally see myself starting the wash and hoping that it finished before we had to leave... but I know that won't be the case. I'm thinking I might just have to be prepared to wash every other day, just in case.
Re: the cord...that reminds me, I need to talk to OB about this. Are you encapsulating? I've really been thinking about it!

Do you mean any effacement progression by 'the other part'? None yet! But, when he asked me if I would want to be induced, I asked him if he thinks the chances of an emergency C-Section increase by being induced. He said if there is no indication labor is near and induction is started, yes, and in that case he wouldn't induce. So, long story short.....I have a spot reserved. If he thinks I'm not ready, he wouldn't begin induction & I trust his judgement.
