I was 36 weeks yesterday...YEAH!!! I never thought that I would get this far.

I had to have the Group B Strep test...again. I had it when I was admitted to the hospital before, but dr told me it had to be taken w/in 4 weeks of delivery. She also checked me....when I was discharged from the hospital I was 1 to 1 1/2 cm, 50% effaced and really high. Today I was 2cm, 75% effaced and low. Baby had dropped. I will say this....cervix checks are much easier to handle after baby has dropped...it feels like they don't have to reach all the way up and touch your tonsils!!!

I also asked about the induction and she told me to make my appt next week w/my reg OB and we would decide then. Since my reg OB is the one who mentioned it in the first place, I am thinking that I will have a before Christmas baby. HOW EXCITING!!!! Also, my husband is starting a new job on Jan 2. If we are able to deliver before Christmas, then DH and I will have almost 2 weeks w/baby before he has to work. That would be really nice.

So, all in all, a good appt!!! YIPEE!!!

Great news! I can't believe you made it this long - you must be relieved.
