had my appt today (39w3d), I woke up at 2am all crampy and thought for sure I'd be headed in today but sadly no sigh. Cervix still pointing back and when I made a fist under my butt she was able to check a bit better and said I was around 3cm (at first she said 1-2cm........last week the other mw said 2cm without me changing the angle). Very disappointed as I was already 3cm by I think 38w with ds1. Said I was about 50% effaced too.
Feeling like crud I decided this week to go ahead and let them do a sweep (last week I declined). MAN that hurt. Now I have constant back pain ;( Going to try a bath after dinner, been laying with heating pad on my back for the past hour or so.
Really hope it works b/c I am so done haha
oh and she sent me to get my immunity checked for Fifths Disease, at this point not for me just so we know if I'll have the immunity to pass on to baby.....more outbreaks at ds' school so while he hasn't shown any symptoms as of yet it's still going around his school/class
