so yeah...katelyn had her 39-week visit today. she had to ask them to check her -- they weren't really thinking of doing it. she asked if they could strip her membranes and got this response:

i don't do that. and if i did, you would have to be at the hospital and on monitor because it is dangerous for the baby. the cord could shift out the cervix etc.

so after that bit of bright news, she told her she was still just 1 cm which she has been at for weeks on end. but the 'best' is yet to come.

the NP decided that possibly she was not 39 weeks at all but more like 38-ish and thus said that her EDD was now 6/16 rather than 6/9. WHAAAATTTT!!!! katelyn was so extremely upset. then one of the nurses told her to have sex 3 times a day to induce labor if she really didn't want to wait till the 16th. oh sure, no problem.

needless to say, she is disappointed and pissed.

What?? Why would they change the due date so late? I'd be pretty pissed too!
Here's hoping things pick up soon!

That sounds ridiculous. Why would they suddenly change the due date like that? Is her belly just measuring small? I don't think that's too unheard of at this point, anyway. Or are they going off an ultrasound? I hope she goes on her own and doesn't need the doctor's help; they sound kind of like quacks.

Wow!?! What not to tell a pregnant lady her "last week" of pregnancy. I'm sorry her appointment didn't go well... I'd be pissed too!

I've learned to ignore due dates really... its just a rough guess anyway... but as for the comments she has had to endure.... that is just rude. It almost seems malice of the nursing staff to make such a suggestion because it sounds so improbable. I'd complain too!!!

Im sorry she is so miserable...hopefully her baby comes on her own and soon.
As far as doctors not stripping membranes because it can be dangerous..well thats true..it *CAN* be. It often isnt but sometimes if they arent careful it can rupture the bag of waters and the cord can ben swept out. Its rare but it happens. Sounds like the doctor is just trying to cover their behinds...OB's have one of the highest rate of malpractice so it isnt surprising they cover their butts when they can.
Its good that she IS dilating...I was stuck at 1 cm forever with my first. But dilation means nothing with how close to labor you are since it can go 0 to bam shortly or you can be stuck at 3-4 for weeks. She is only 39 weeks she has some time..it will happen. I know everyone is anxious but baby will come when she is ready.
