38 week appointment

Well let me first start out by saying that I am very envious of those that have never had morning sickness or furthermore have it for only the 1st trimester! UUGH..I have not been able to keep much down since yesterday at lunch. But I do have to say that I dont always have it this bad it just seems to be worse right now! I feel horrible though! (not to complain or anything! :) ) Now on with the appointment...
We had our 38 week appointment today. I had lost 2 1/2 lbs. since last week (could have something to do with being sick). Dr. Poist said it could possibly be a GI bug and gave me something for it. I was dilated about 3 cm and he said I was thinning out very well and everything was measuring great. He gave me the option of induction and I had lots of questions for him concerning the subject. We made the decision to go ahead and set an induction date for Thursday. (He had Thursday and Monday available and Thursday is my father-in-laws bday so we went with that). I know there are lots of mixed feelings with induction but I have prayed about it and we are good with our decision. Plus who knows she might decide to come before then! We will be at the hospital at 5 am on Thursday morning...please keep us in your prayers for a safe delivery and a healthy baby!!
