Dave and I just returned from my appointment. The doctor examined me and said I was 3-4 cm, 70% effaced, and -1 station--so I'm progressing. She went ahead and stretched my cervix to a 4 and stripped my membranes so I could very well go into labor on my own tonight, but in the event that doesn't happen, we'll schedule an induction time for later this week. Labor and delivery is packed today and tomorrow so she's going to call us this evening and tell us how Friday and Saturday look. I'm really hoping her "tweaking" this afternoon will help me go into labor before the weekend, but if I don't, at least there's an end in sight.

And, while it doesn't always mean anything, I'm measuring 41 weeks. My doctor doesn't think he's too big yet though.
