Welcome to your lodge. Thanks for the intro, you have a beautiful family. I'm so sorry the treatment you received with regards to ds's delivery. That must have been hard to emotionally recover from. It's great that you've found a hb mw and that you have such a supportive dh, that is so very important. I'm looking forward to following your journey. Yay for some progress!

Krystal, how are you holding up lately? Sounds like you have great progress for 37 weeks! I was closed up high and tight at 37, so at least you know you probably will pop before you get to the point where I'm at!

I am feeling great today and most days actually. I kinda wish I was having some of the late pregnancy symptoms to indicate labor was soon...but I haven't really had anything. I "think" I may have lost a small part of my mucous plug today, but it wasn't bloody at all so I don't know really what that means...I guess she will come in her own due time. We are just getting excited!
Loved your intro!! I can't wait to hear about your HBAC! You said you wanted to compare where you are with where you were with DS, what were you with him at 37 weeks?

With DS I was only a fingertip dilated and not effaced at all at 37 weeks, so I am just a little bit further along then I was with him. Thinking about it now...I don't know if it was such a good idea to compare b/c I have no clue when I would have gone into labor with him haha...oh well it's still good to know. I am wondering if I should be checked anymore... Anyone know how likely is it to cause problems being checked weekly? I am a curious cat and keep wanting to know if things I am doing to progress are really helping at all...I know I'm a dork!
I went in for my LAST appointment with the OB today. After a horrible experience with him stripping my membranes without permission I can't see going back! He said he was just going to check me and the we would talk about possibly doing a membrane strip... Well he checks me and said well this might be a little uncomfortable or something like that and he proceeds to strip my membranes.... It hurt like no other!! I don't know if it was because I wasn't prepared for it or what, but geesh, I hope I'm not that wimpy when it comes to labor pains! He said I am about 10% more effaced at about 70% and dialated to a loose 1... and baby is -1 station. A little progress but not much to call home about!
After he stripped my membranes I sat up and I was SO dizzy and nauseous. I almost hurled...but I asked for a glass of water and that helped calm things down. DH said he thinks the doctor was too forceful and I agree..... I will NOT being going back especially because he said he would like to strip my membranes at least once a week until I go into labor....NO WAY!!
Whoa! I can't believe he just did that! I am sorry.

That is soooo wrong! I can't believe he did that to you, my midwifes last time wouldn't strip membranes until 40 weeks, and only then if your over 2 cm. Your only dialated a tiny bit so I'm sure it was very painful for him to be doing anything inside there!! Hope you have a good night and I look forward to watching your updates.
Hopping in late here...Welcome! I can't wait to follow the rest of your journey and hear about your HBAC!
I just can't believe that OB. That is horrible and makes me so mad.
