I had my appointment yesterday afternoon. I am 38 weeks and some days. My blood pressure was still good (90/60 and 98/62). Baby's heart rate was in the 140's. She checked me and I am still only 1 cm and now 75% effaced. She said that the baby's head is extremely low, but she did not tell me what station or anything like that. She said that there is definitely scar tissue from where the cerclage was. It seems that the scar tissue is holding my cervix closed just like the cerclage. She said that they will probably have to break up the scar tissue for me to dilate. So now I have a major dilemma. She said that it is very painful to have the scar tissue broken up and they recommend an epidural. I have never had an epidural and did not want one with this delivery. I had a spinal once and it took almost 10 hours to wear off. I really did't want an epidural, but all of the induction stories also scare me. I am being induced on Friday and will probably not go on my own because of the scar tissue. The doctor that I saw yesterday is not the doctor that I will see on Friday. She said that I can talk to him and see if there are any other options. I just don't know what to expect and how do I decide? I'm not even sure how they will induce me (pitocin or the prostaglandins). I feel so stupid for not asking more questions.
