I had a check up on Monday I am 60% effaced. I am a little worried now that she might come early? Is this an indicator of that? I am pretty clueless still on what this all means. I still have no baby name her middle name will be of a Rose variation!

I have had plenty of ultrasounds but so far everything is doing great after my loss from taking a recalled BCP and getting pregnant while on it in April 2012. 

I have been pretty active. I have seen about 4-5 concerts and I am constantly moving around and doing stuff. I have been pretty busy needless to say with school and just trying to have fun before she comes. We plan on the casino this weekend and on April 1st for our 3/30 anniversary we are spending the night at the haunted Thornwood Castle and taking some pictures of me in the Rose Red Room. 

I still have lots of issues signing in and posting... I mainly use WTE and Facebook if anyone is on there or in a group LMK!

What a beautiful baby in that pic.  I feel you as I went to my doc and got checked and was 2cm but "thick."  From what I was told by the doc, if it's your first full term delivery then you efface first then dilate and if you've delivered before then you dilate first then efface.  So all in all, it seems like your body is revving up and as everyone mentioned before, it could be sooner rather than later or vice versa.

We have two names, but we are waiting until the baby is born for the big reveal...

From what I know I agree with Catherine's post--being effaced can be a sign labor is coming or you can stay that way for weeks!  We still haven't settled on a first name either--but I'm only 33 weeks so still have time!

Great to see you again! According to what I've been reading, you can stay a centimeter or two dilated and effaced for weeks--or birth might be around the corner. So you might deliver early--or you might not. Nice, exact answer, huh?  Tongue Out
