I need some "STAY PUT, BABY" vibes!!!

Yesterday I had my 36 week appointment (36w, 2d) and was found to be 3cm and 80% effaced. This will be my 5th delivery, and my labors have all gotten shorter and shorter. Baby #4's labor was 1hr and 45min from start to finish, so I know that this baby will probably be pretty quick, too.

Anyway, the parents of the baby live in China and are not due to arrive until September 23rd. I did talk to them, and they are trying to rearrange their plans to come a little sooner. I just really, really want them here for the delivery. They've waited so long to meet this baby, and I don't want them to miss a moment.

I know (from experience!) that you can walk around 3cm for weeks without going into labor, so that part doesn't worry me - but being 80% effaced does. I know that once you're thinned out, you dilated fairly quickly, correct?
