Had my first Weekly Appt. and "Check"

So yesterday I had my first "check". I am a fingertip dialated, thick and high. Not a big shocker, my babies are always high and I really don't expect any serious dialation for at least a few more weeks. Had the GBS test and talked about when I will be induced if she doesn't make her debut by then (March 6th). Good appointment, down to weeklies now. Yikes!!!!

I also have my next appt on Monday and then weekly appointments after that. Not sure if they will do a cervical check, but I guess I'll find out. I know they are doing the GBS swab. I'm starting to get really anxious about the delivery! :/

I've been having weekly appts for the last couple weeks already, but my first "check" is this Wednesday. I'm pretty sure that there isn't much happening yet, but we'll see. Regardless, my induction is scheduled for 8pm on the 26th! Only 2 weeks to go!

Jen, I'm curious, is there a reason why the doctor wants to induce so soon after your due date? I thought they let you go up to 2 weeks late before they induce (that's what I read at least).

We are on similar appointment schedules Smile She checked me last week and I was 2cm and 50% thinned. I know that means virtually nothing since this in my 100th kid Smile I have until March 16th to go on my own!

Dee I live an hour from the hospital and don't want to take any chances on going into labor at home so it is my choice to be induced 2 days after my due date. No biggie, I will already be 40 weeks.

Wow, an hour away?! I'd be so nervous about that! I'm lucky, I'm only 10 minutes from 2 different hospitals...

I also live within 5-10 minutes of two different hospitals so if worse came to worse I could go to one of them. However, my doc (whom I love dearly) is at the hospital an hour away. Smile

We live an hour away from the closest hospital - It's freaking Dh out a little bit - especially since I keep having dream that he delivers the baby. He is now asking at every Dr's appointment when to get me to the hospital. LOL
