39 week appointment

I am 3cm, not thinning...but she assured me I'm making progress. I was 2 cm last week. She stripped my membranes... she is on call tonight but then not again until Thursday. Next appointment is on Monday and she said we'll discuss our plan from there. With being a vbac I don't think she'll let me do any inductions I just pray and pray that I don't have to have another csection Sad I just feel like my body isn't preparing for birth at all. With my others I felt like I was DOING something but not this time.

I think that your body's just done this a few times before so maybe the changes just aren't so obvious. I hope you go soon and get your VBAC!

I know how your feeling girl. I'm not dilated only 30% effaced. I go back Wednesday to find out more and maybe get my membranes swept. I don't want to have a c section either. Stay positive and I will be praying your little one comes soon so you won't have to have a c section. Smile

Is this your first VBAC or have you done it before? If you've been able to go into labor on your own before, there shouldn't be any reason why you can't do it again! It's okay mama, you've still got a week until your due date!

I've had 2 other successful vbac's and I usually take awhile to thin out... and w/ my 2nd vbac I just rolled over in bed and GUSH the water broke! no signs or anything! I don't know what my deal is this time around... I swear it feels like my first go round at this! I really wasn't nervous at all w/ my other vbac's at all.

Sounds like my 2nd VBAC (this past one). Two days before I was high, firm, no dilation. And then all of a sudden while I was sleeping I felt like I'd peed myself!
