38 week 2 day appointment

Sigh....for all that belly tightening, hip stretching pain i'd have thought that i'd be farther than i was the last 2 weeks or at least my cervix to be less thick. but to no avail. i'm still 1cm, high closed and slightly softer. Baby is still high. So because i'm still a 1 and no other changes he didn't sweep saying that it would be really painful. Sad
Bean's HB = 144.
Measuring 39 weeks (i'm like last week i was 40, he's like its a variable measurement)

so he is going to have me come in on Monday and then again on Thursday. hopefully i wont need that THursday appointment. but he did say that he'd sweep me on Monday and then again on Thursday.

So i'm going to start the 2 EPO tonight, walking more and then utilize my breast pump. gotta get things going here.

Mom arrives Saturday and then leaves the 29th. so i've only got a short window.

part of me wonders if i'm stalling my own progression with this mental forcefield on dilation so that i wouldn't go before Mom got here. so maybe once she arrives i'll just fall head over cervix into labor??????

Don't get discouraged about dilation. As it's been said over and over on here- it doesn't mean much. I was only 2 cm two days before I had Camdyn. I was feeling discouraged because I had been that way for three weeks.
Hopefully your body is just waiting on your mom to arrive!

I thought the Doc told you he WOULD sweep at the next apt.? But..ha ha.. the head over cervix line was great! I hope it works out for you, if your mom is like my mom she'll be a great support person!
