Well I had my 39 week appt yesterday 2nd week in a row that I have lost weight. But cervix is still long & closed. 0 dilated My mom flys in for 2 weeks on friday so I wanted him to wait till his g'ma gets here neways. Doc told me that if I haven't gone by Oct 20 then we will do an induction which is now less then 2 weeks away. HE even suggested maybe sooner. My due date is Oct 14. I want to meet my lil man so much but when he told me Oct 20 there was a little part of me that was like NO I am not sharing him, I like him in my belly. Almost bitter sweet I won't be preggo in 2 weeks. Neways I think becuz it took us soooooooo long to get preggo maybe thats why I feel this way. Neways hoping I go this weekend on my own. Is it possible for me to still go on my own with my cervix not doing anything? My mom said that I need to start doing nipple stimulatin but I just get nervous about all that stuff. Thanks for listening.

with my fitst son i still was high, closed, not effaced, baby not even dropped with no sign of contractions at 41 weeks. i was scheduled to be induced once i hit 9 days late. after that its a med. emergency.. or whatever. so anyway i start having contractions 2 days or so before my inducement date. cant sleep at all they keep me up night number one.... go to doctor in the morning well actually it was 3 pm.. i was really annoyed cause i couldnt sleep id been up forever and they hurt. he said i was starting to efface. 11:30 os so that night my water breaks. i get to the hospital at 1 am im 100 percent effaed, and 1 cm. 5 hours later i delivered my son at 6:03 am. i hope that answers your question oh and by the way he was still high when i got to the hospital... meanign the baby didnt drop until part way through labor.. no one was actually high.
Yup, what your cervix is doing now has little bearing on when you will actually go into labour. I've had clients be checked in the morning and be disappointed that nothing is happening, only to call me later that day in labour. And then, heck, look at me, I went at least 7 weeks thinned out and dilating before labour kicked in.

First surrobaby (girl) arrived April 24, 2008!
Surrotwins Hayleigh and Teagan arrived September 24, 2009!
With dd my cervix never changed AT ALL until I was in actual labor. They were talking about a "trial induction" that would probably end in a c-section. But I went into labor on my own and dilated relatively quickly so it's definitely possible.
I understand the mixed feelings...it's definitely bittersweet.
