I had my 39 week appt this AM. I'm only 1 cm dilated and 80% effaced. Boo! I was hoping to have more progress so my doc might sweep my membranes or talk about induction but she won't do anything until 41 weeks. My parents are out of state for a week (they leave on my due date) so ill feel really bad if they miss him being born. I can hold out another week but I dont think I can make it to July. I just had a meltdown and I'm so ready for the pregnancy to be over. I thought I was okay this AM but now I'm sitting by myself I'm realizing I could very well be Pregnant for 3 more weeks. It takes me 2 days to recover from grocery shopping I'm still gaining weight and I'm afraid of how big the baby will get. Doc said if I'm really miserable next week shell talk induction again. Whatever that means what woman isn't really miserable at 40 weeks??

I'm sorry, I'm right there with you at the miserable point! This is the longest I've ever been pregnant by 9 days and my doc doesn't do inductions until at least 41 wks. I was hoping to avoid induction, but I'm so over being pregnant and because we're in the middle of moving, I'm staying with my parents until he's born so I don't have to switch doctors again...and I probably couldn't now anyway...but I'm so ready to have our own space again! Ugh.
if it makes you feel any better at all ill be 40 weeks friday and im only 1cm (have been for 3 weeks) and 40 to 50% effaced it sucks. i hope your parents are back in time for you to have him or that you have him before they leave!
I feel your pain. I cried all the way home from my appt last week because I wasn't dilated at all but I get BH constantly. I have an appt tonight so I guess we will see. I do have a c-section panned for 6/26 so at least I have a date. I feel your pain though....hang in there!
I haven't gotten an update but pretty sure the trip is canceled for my mom and step dad. My mom is having gull bladder attacks and should be having surgery today. As for me I went to l&d wed night. My stomach was Ctx hard every 3-5 min and with df working the night shift we figured it be a good idea to go in. My Bp was mega high 144/99 and they weren't liking how the baby was responding. I had Ctx for 4 hrs every 2 min and wasn't dilating. Doc said I was dehydrated and once I got some fluids in me Bp went down and baby looked good. Ctx grew more intense. still no cervix change so I was sent home because I live so close. (btw I had to share a bathroom with a woman who delivered and had her bloody peri bottle out and df wasn't allowed to go to the bathroom) I woke up to Ctx yesterday AM and was thinking to go in but they stopped! my doc was gone yesterday but I was told to make an appt with her fri before the weekend to make sure Bp was good. I got a call this morning from her nurse to come in earlier and Bp is still high, had some blood work done and induction is scheduled for Monday morning. I thought that might happen the doc at l&d said he thought it'd be a good idea. Just hoping my mom has a good recovery from her surgery and is up for seeing baby next week.
