Hi everyone.. I had my 38 week check up today and I was checked for the vary first time and I didn't like it.. It hurt a little bit.. Anyway.. I'm 3.5 cm dilated and 70% effaced.. Baby is sitting a bit high, but my doctor said that he won't be surprised if I have the baby before my inducement day.. I'm also measuring 38 weeks, so I'm measuring right on track.. My OB thinks he'll be a 7 lb baby plus or minus a pound. So the lucky day for Anthony to come into this world is next Friday. I'm scheduled to work up until Thursday of next week, so I'll be working right up to my inducement date.. I guess if I go into labor, work is a good place to be since L&D is just on the second floor.. lol I also got the seasonal flu shot and H1N1 shot today at work, so I'm now protected.

So that's my update.. Sorry I haven't been around that much.. Work has been crazy busy the past few days, I'm usually way to tired to get online when I get home.. But I promise to keep you updated on my days off..

Melissa

That's good that you have a date set but maybe you'll end up going on your own especially since you're still working.

Glad your appointment went well! Sounds like it won't be much longer before he arrives.

Thank you ladies for your kind comments.. I can't wait for baby Anthony to arrives.. I'm so ready to be normal again and to eat something and not feel guilty about it..

I honestly think working on my feet has helped me walk better, etc.. Granted it hurts towards the end, but I hate to see what it would be like if I didn't walk as much.. And your right about the beginning of the flu season, hospitals are hopping. That's one of the main reasons why I got those 2 shots.. That H1N1 is vary scary... What's bad is that my hospital has only received 10 doses of the H1N1 so far and it was a first come first serve basis for pregnant employees only and I got the 9th shot within 30 minutes of them offering it.. I know I should have saved it for someone who's not that far along, but I wanted some kind of defense.. I have a feeling H1N1 is going to get worse as the days go by.. I'm truthfully terrified by it..

Good luck!!!!

Why do they have you set for induction before your due date?? Just curious. its hard to find docs around here that will induce before your due date without medical reason.
