Forgot to say that he also said my cervix is very very soft and mushy lol :-) How is everyone else doing??
I am almost 39 weeks and am not even a cm dialated, my cervix is really soft but still posterior. I have an appt tomorrow where my OB is going to try to sweep my membranes.
Its funny how every pregnancy is different. My first I delivered just over 32 weeks, second was almost the same but we were able to stop labor and she went on to 41wks when I had to be induced. This one is a little stubborn one and I think is going to do the same thing. Must be a girl thing, lol.
All the best of luck
Found out today that since I am having a c-section, my doctor wont be checking my cervix at all as the do not want to disturb anything in that region, they want me to make it til my date...so, I have no update that area.
Hope you have your little one soon!
I am the same as you as of my 37 week appt last week, almost 3 cm 50% effaced. I will be going in on monday to see how far I've progressed, and to get my membranes stripped. Hopefully that will do the trick so I don't have to be induced the next week!
I had my 36 week checkup last Tuesday and my doctor didn't even check me. He did put me on moderate bed rest due to some severe edema. It has since decreased since I started medical leave and have been a lazy bum at home. :) Now that I have nothing to do, I'm sure my little one will make a late arrival. HA!
Good luck with everyone else.
I haven't been checked yet either. I'm 37 weeks 3 days and my next appointment isn't until Friday at 38 weeks. I'm hoping the little one waits it out a bit as I still have much to do to prepare (in my head anyways!). Has everyone else packed their bags?
I have not packed my bags yet...and everyday I keep saying I am going to do it....and I dont get to it! I think that is something I will def be doing this week! It needs to be done. Even though my schedule c-section is February 16th, I dont think I am going to make it til then...only time will tell!
I packed my bag and it's HUGE! I tried a smaller bag, but some of the stuff is really bulky. I think my luggage is smaller when we go to Florida for a week -- and that includes everything for both my dh & I! Geez! I had to pack a separate baby bag. PLUS, I have a cooler bag packed with snacks, drinks and CHOCOLATE for the nurses.
You crack me up! Better to be safe than sorry, right? I am going to make the goal of doing mine today!!! I hope...lol..may have to wait til Tues when I have more time bc DH can be home with my 1 year old....
My dh is going to need to hire a porter to drag the bags into the hospital as I don't think they have those handy dandy carts like at the airport :-) To be fair, my L&D bag includes my postpartum stuff (I can justify anything). Also, because I don't know how cold it will be when we leave the hospital with the baby, I HAD to pack 2 different snow suits, not to mention that the baby outfits had to be coordinated and I had to pack outfits from different people in case they come to visit. It's only 36 hours, but one needs to be prepared!
