I had hoped not to make one of these posts... LOL.
So, today was my 40 week appt. Babys HB was good, my BP was good, I'm still only 2cm dilated and "not much different" from Thursday. BOO!!!
She did the internal check and then did something to my membranes. lol She called it stripping the membranes, I dont know if thats stretching or sweeping or both... (more confusion from the other thread... lol) anyway it was NOT Pleasant and I felt a lot of discomfort for a bit after -(TMI?) it felt like a lot of pressure and for a while like I was going to burst ... but nothing did. so who knows what it did. She said she was "trying" to do it, since I'm not effaced. I didnt get a % on it again ... ops.
So, hopefully I'm not around much longer (lol) but if I am, I have an induction scheduled for the 11th (9 days after EDD) and a NST for Thurs and another on Monday to monitor baby. Hoping I dont need either, or at least just the first one... lol. The "induction" is on the day my OB is in the hospital - I'll have a 41 week appt with her on the 9th and if I am still around we can decide on an induction or a Csec for that day... and if it gets to that I have no idea which I'd prefer. ugh... heres hoping I DONT make it to that. lol
