I had my 38 week appointment today and it was completely uneventful, which is good I guess. Last week we had discussed possibly setting an induction date this week because he's 8lbs+ but instead he didn't even do an internal because I have a sinus infection and he doesn't want to induce me while I'm sick. I'm a bit disappointed as I'm ready for this to be over and I was really hoping he'd be here by Thanksgiving so DH could have a few extra days off with us. I feel like utter crap right now - not because of the pregnancy but because of my sinus infection. My GP put me on amoxicillin for my sinus infection but it seems like after 4 days of it I've only gotten worse! I can't wait until the weekend to try and recoup so I don't feel so horrible. He also told me there was absolutely no decongestants I could take so that I could actually breathe. My OB feels he was wrong about this and said it's ok to take sudefed or tylenol cold because at this point I just need to get better in case I do go into labor on my own.
I'm just wondering if anyone has gone into labor naturally while sick? I definitely don't want to be doing that since the last thing I want is to expose my new baby or anyone else at the hospital with my germs. :- /
