38 week OB appointment

Oct 04, 2011 - 3 comments

Had my 38 week appointment...  Doctor did a check still only 3 Cm (she said 80% effaced)....  She said she did a membrane sweep to see if she could stir things up a bit but I heard those were uncomfortable and it really didnt seem any different than a normal cervix check...  she did swoosh around in there a bit so who knows.. we will see...

Baby still ridiculously low..... and engaged..

Heartbeat was 155.... Still weighing 124....

Lets see if I make it to my 39 week appointment.

Membrane sweep takes up to 24 hours to work they say. Good luck!

My sweep took 1 hour to work, and it hurt like anything!

Surprisely my membrane sweep didnt hurt at all...  I read online that if your cervix is really low and already dilating, then it wont be so bad but if its up high, it can be really painful and harder to get into....  Of course i also read its more likely to be effective if you are already progressing.....

I spotted like all hell the night after.. non bright red, just lots and lots of pink... But it didnt seem to work...  im not quite at the 48 hour mark (as they say it increases your chances of going into labor within the next 48 hours)...

But still minimum contractions....  This baby really decided my uterus was a good home after all, which dont get me wrong is still a huge relief compared to being in the hospital hoping to make it to 32 weeks.,\
