stay positive. It will work out fine. Baby will be here soon do enjoy what rest you can:-) . Just think. You're dr wasn't sure you'd make 36weeks now you are almost 40. Weeks! Thats awesome! We are here for you!!
the last days are torturous I know! Just know, its not going to last forever.
Have they check you for.dialation yet? With my first my water.broke at 3 cm. And 70% effaced. Hope that gives you some hope
Hi Flickan, I have been induced twice, once with the gel inserted, and this last time I was on the piticin drip. And both times no epidural! (But i asked for one, and apparently i was too far gone to get one). I've never had a natural birth, so i couldn't tell you the difference, but they say being induced definately makes the contractions more intense. But at least its quick! 4 hours and i was done. Best of luck to you and hope things aren't too far away :)
Well the gel induction was 10 years ago, and because i went to a different hospital this time they said they don't use that method anymore, so hence the drip. But i reckon the contractions definately felt the same, but thinking back, i reckon the gel was worse, but that could've just been me in shock because my first was c-section!!
Having weird contractions 5 min apart right now....have a dr appt in 2 hours going to that and let her check me so I don't have to go to l&d just to be sent home if its something she can send me down to l&d which is on the floor below her office.
They're weird cuz they were more like menstrual cramps than anything. So got sent home by doc. Have another appt on Mon if she hasn't arrived. 70% effaced and only 2 cm dilated. She stretched me out again....and omg that hurt. This time had some blood when she was done. Hopefully that will be a good sign as to soon. She says all the signs are there....so keep those fingers crossed. I am hoping not do deal with n induction.
You should squat holding onto the side of the bed or couch and just kinda hand there (this will help baby move down). Also rocking back and forth on the edge of the couch or bed will help too to bring baby down.
The day i had my baby I was scheduled to be induced but then my body just did everything naturally so maybe that will happen to u also:)) so excited for your baby to be here its such an annoying process the last couple of weeks emma knew how I felt about mine the last couple of weeks lol u will get there and before u know it she will be here
Yay! So close!! Try rocking your hips when sitting or get on all fours and swing your hips side to side. Helps baby drop a bit. I'm so excited for you girl. Your day is almost here. Also try a warm soak.
Went for a walk around a lake n lost more mucus plug....when I stand from sitting, rocking back n forth is the only way I am able to move at all.....having the worst lower back pain. Occasional contractions but no pattern and bh leaving me breathless just about with the tightness on my belly. Going to tell doc on Monday that Friday is when I want to be induced....still gives her plenty of time to come naturally.
