36w belly pic & progress

Lillian's Halloween outfit! I couldn't pass it up for $10!
I was so hot from walking the dogs. I look like a mess!

Someone seems to be in a hurry... and its NOT me ::whispers Lillian:: lol
It all started over the weekend. I noticed (possible TMI warning) a think brownish colored mucus on my panty liner. Then Sunday a lot more of the same stuff in the toilet. So I assumed I was loosing my MP. Which means nothing really.
So today I went into my appointment again thinking ahh I'm probably the same ol' 1cm and 30% effaced. I told the doctor how I think I lost my MP and she seemed surprised. So she checked my belly, listened for the heartbeat. Everything was fine. Then she checked me and seemed even more surprised to realize that Nope, I am 3cm, 50% effaced and -1 station. I knew I dropped b/c I could actually eat more then 2 bites again! I was really taken back and made the doc repeat herself! She told me its really rare for a 1st time pregnancy and said "You are like a machine!" She asked if I noticed any contractions. But I honestly haven't noticed anything major. So she mentioned something about how I'd be perfect for induction at 38 weeks. And that we would just see how things pan out. I was at a loss of words. I didn't ask one single question I planned on! Ah well!
So my plan at this point is to take it week by week. The only plus about being inducded would be for my job. I would be able to pin point when I'd be out and when my sub can take over. That and not having my water break in front of 18 kids ages 6-7! "Whats that Mrs.A?" lol
Guess time will tell!! :)

Love the costume, she will look so cute in it. How crazy is that, you made it to 3 cm and have felt nothing yet. Looks like she will be making her appearance pretty soon.
