    So I wasn't checked for effacement or dilation today. They'll check for that when I go in on Wednesday. Everything is measuring normal and her heartbeat is as good as always. Unfortunately, they told me that my B Strep came back positive. I'll have to be put on antibiotics when I go into labor and they want to keep us 48 hours in the hospital to evaluate afterwards. I've had three different people tell me that they think I'm going to go early. One of them is a client at my job who works in one of the NICU's in the city. She came in yesterday (I was off) and asked about me. She saw me on Monday at work and thought I looked peaked and told the girls she was confident that I was going to go early. It'll be interesting to see if I do or not.

    Almost there! I had comments about me coming early, too. What is strange is that I got a lot of comments the week before labor that I looked "radiant" and "happy". lol

    Today was my 38 week checkup. I had my cervix checked and it looks like I'm still closed. OB said that I can still go as early as next week, but if there is still no baby by May 5th then I'll need to be induced. I'm honestly not really that concerned though. The baby finally dropped and I've been feeling rather fantastic this week and hope it lasts a while!

    I also had my baby shower this last Sunday and it went perfectly. It had a good turnout and I got a lot of nice things. DH and I also went shopping last night and today to get some things that we still need. I also got a dresser from my grandma, aunt and cousins that my mom will drop off hopefully this weekend and I can get all of the baby clothes put away.

    I'm fine with waiting longer, but I would probably cry if she wasn't here by May 5th.

    Nothing new to really report with me, but I was able to get more of the nursery setup this week AND I got a glider for $15. One of my coworkers shops religiously at The Arc and found a glider there and she took a picture of it for me. I went to look at it on Friday night while it was $30 and saw that it was in very good shape. I didn't get it then because it was going to be half off the next day. It was still there when I went first thing yesterday morning and I was able to get it! I got it nice and scrubbed up! Here are some pictures I took of the chair and the nursery so far.

    Thank you! I'm hoping to get the dresser here in the next couple of days and I can put the clothes away and it will be done then.

    Nothing really new to report. I went in today for my 39 week checkup and my OB confirmed that she has definitely dropped and she was able to feel her head when she was trying to check my cervix. My cervix is still really far back and she wasn't able to get a clear idea on if there had been any changes at all and it didn't help that Liz's head was in the way. She said there was still a certain thickness to it and she couldn't tell if I was still closed or even 2 cm dilated. She called the hospital today to set me up for an induction on May 5th if the baby isn't here by then.

    I know. It's just discouraging. I was hoping that there would have been something new going on when I was checked.

    I had an appointment for Friday, but I changed it to Thursday. I have been doing what I can to get things moving along! DH and I took a nice long walk this evening and holy crap...I am really feeling it.

    Just like Mariah said, things can change quickly. I do understand wanting to see some progress, and hopefully it won't be much longer for you

    Had my appointment this morning. The nurse practitioner checked me and I am completely closed. My cervix is also still really far back in and it took her a moment to see where I am at. I have an induction date set for May 5th at 7am (assuming I don't have her by then). I'm really hoping that I have her way before then.

    As it has been said before - it may go from 0 to full labour in no time. Hope you get to hold your baby soon!

    I hope things progress for you soon! I'd be frustrated if I were in your shoes I think!

    Oh I know it can happen at anytime still. I was just hoping to get some different news at my appointment. I guess it's good that she was actually able to tell this time. I did feel better today (about the no baby thing...mostly), but it did get tiring being asked if there was a baby yet...by the same people. Otherwise, today was just a dumb day with lots of stupidity in the air.

    I went 15 days overdue and I had vowed, early on, to stay at work until I delivered because I didn't want to "waste" my leave before the baby came. I totally had to get them to write me out at 41 weeks. I could NOT take another week of being asked about why I hadn't had a baby yet. I feel your pain.

    I'm off this weekend, so I have a lot of time to do some cleaning and I'm going to drag DH (who is also off today) on a walk. One of the vets I work with said that he better not see me on Monday.
