39 week OB appointment

Oct 13, 2011 - 8 comments

Went to the OB today.. Somehow the baby's head is lower though im not sure how that can keep happening without the baby coming out..  There was no change still - still sitting at 3 Cm 80-90% effaced...    No weight change..  So my total pregnancy weight gain is around 24 lbs... which is only slightly less than I probably should have gained because I started off a bit underweight...

She did another membrane sweep to see if things can get moving, this one was quite vigorous compared to the last one so here is hoping but im not 100% optimistic..

My next appointment is on Tuesday and she said at that point, we will arrange something for Friday or Saturday of next week to do an induction... Which she said should be fairly easy since im already progressed so much, should just be a little bit of the pitocin drip and rupturing my membranes..   I really really really hope though that labor will happen over the next couple days at least... Due date is in 4 days.

wow so close!!! Hopefully this second membrane sweep will do the trick. Try walking, walking and walking...keeping as active as you can. That should help hopefully! I hope to see a status update soon that you're in labour!!

Fingers crossed for you! Have you tried the raspberry leaf tea? I only got one cup and then labor started a couple hours later.

Keep up with the walking. That should help to get things going. I've never tried the tea, but I did try the sex trick and it can help. Lol! Good luck! I hope everything progresses smoothly so you can hold your new bundle of joy and start your new journey. Best wishes.

The 2nd sweep worked for me! Had it at 9am and had baby at 11pm that night. Hope baby is here soon for you :)

thanks everyone!

i went for a walk to the grocery store right when I got backed from the doctors hoping to move things along but so far nothing.. im so exhausted...

i have tried the raspberry leaf tea.. i have been having a cup a day for  a bit now.... it says it is suppose to help with the pushing stage of labor so i figure it cant hurt..

i have also done the sex trick, which does give me contractions but really extremely painful cramps for about 4 hours after.. unfortunately after trying this numerous times, i am still at 3cm so it helped in the beginning to get me to 3 but so far not much more..

so close !
