    I expected to go in for my 38 week appt. today and set induction for 39 weeks. My OB did a cervix check and I was 3cm 80% effaced. He said "I'll just do some wiggling around here and that could kick off contractions for you". He said it as he was already doing it. I believe it was a sweep? Never had one before. The thing is, the point of my 39 week induction is that I have my babies very fast. ( Went from 3.5cm to pushing in 25 mins with my last, and I live 45 mins away from hospital). My OB is pretty busy and I usually have to update him on these things at each visit. Which I did after the cervix check today.
    So he said I better come in at 6:30 Monday morning for induction. HOPEFULLY I make it that long as Ive had alot of braxton hicks since leaving the office at 10:15.
    I'm super nervous now! I really expected to be going in a week later. Better get busy on my finishing touches around here!:wacko:
