I went to my appt today and had a BPP today. Everything looked good as far as baby goes. However, by the end of my appt I had to sign a consent for emergency procedures for if the "sh*t hits the fan and I can't consent"(all of which are in my birth plan for not wanting) but DH and I were ADAMANT about assuring we can refuse in anything other than a genuine emergency and my dr assured me this was the case that everything in any other case is a discussion and I definitely trust her--I just hope I don't get a doc that sucks. DH is VERY assertive about that kind of stuff so I know he'll help me stand up to any doc that may not go according to my birth plan. The consent also still said I could refuse anything right in it which was the ONLY reason I signed it.
But I had her sweep my membranes because she is talking about inducing me on Monday if I haven't had him. I really have worked hard through the pregnancy to achieve the birth that I want and I'm feeling really deflated that there's a chance I'm going to really have to fight to get it. I will be nearly 42 weeks according to their due date and according to date of conception by Monday I will actually be closer to 43 weeks.
So I'm going to try and go into work today I think and get my mind off of everything. I don't know what more to do
JoEllyn - They made me go sign the consent form today too and it made my stomach drop having to do it. I made her assure me that they would still discuss anything with me beforehand because I was NOT planning on having any interventions unless the baby or me were in mortal danger. She assured me that they were very NCB friendly at the hospital I am going to, but I still didn't feel good about it. Hopefully, the sweep will work for you and they will not push you to induce!
sorry hon! I hope baby comes on his own soon and you get the birth you want! walk, DTD, heck maybe go for a jog even! or run up and down some stairs IDK? Come on out baby!! I had my membranes swept with my 1st and went into labor a few hrs later so there is hope at least!
I bet it will go the way you planned, I had my membranes swept and within THREE days I was in full on labour and had our Precious little lady!!! I think everything helps EPO, RRT! Walking, Stairs Sex, whatever! Oh and bouncing on the ball!!!!
Josie, I hope the membrane sweep kicks things into high gear for you. I have my 38 week checkup and wonder if I will have to sign one of those consents...
Bouncing on your ball is a good idea, I have been on mine all day except when sleeping. Spicy food, pineapple, and sex are good things to try to!!!
Good luck sweetie!
