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 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'm sorry you feel like you aren't progressing. You do still have a little over a week until your due date though. And some people go past the due date. Hang in there. :bigarmhug:

I didn't have any signs or symptoms labor was imminent last time and BAM water breaking everywhere! The wait is so hard, but soon, body and baby will decide it is time.

3cm is pretty darn good if you ask me. I would start doing squats and lunges and walking uphill. And then eat some pineapple, meditate and DTD. Haha. How long will she let you go? 41 or 42 weeks?

I am not sure how long, last pg she said 42 weeks so I'm guessing it's the same this time. I feel like my legs are being pulled in 2 separate directions!!! my hips hurt SOOO bad and my lower belly/groin area. I want to walk but feel like I can barely move Sad Gonna try to dtd tonight.. if not to just jump start things to ease dh's nerves and mood hahaha

Sounds like your getting close. Have you thought about taking evening primrose oil capsules? It helps soften the cervix and dialate. I've had success with it with both my boys.
