You know, with her being over 5 1/2 pounds, being over 35 weeks, and with her growing about a week ahead of schedule, I think you are right. If they delivered tonight, I think we would have a little girl who breathed just fine on her own and would not need any time in the NICU.
My schedule at work gets interesting from here. I am one of the 3 computer engineers on one of the largest "behind the scene" projects in the financial sector right now. I'll put it this way - the Federal Reserve is attending our monthly status meetings. The next two critical periods are April 15-18 and April 29 - May 3. After that, the project will have more work, but the core part will be done.
I am going to casually drop the dates in front of the doctor and see if that prods them any to take action Monday instead of waiting until Thursday. That would let me be home the rest of the week, have family watch them Saturday or Sunday so I can go in one day (or both if I had to), and then take the whole next week off to get everyone settled in.
