So Jax doesn't want to come out! I went from 3cm to 1cm! My OB had a hard time even finding my cervix. I always joke and say I'm going to my "fisting" appointments and today that became literal lol. He had to put his leg up on the exam table to get leverage to find my cervix, it hurt like WHOAH!

They scheduled me to come in Friday for an u/s to do a profile of the baby and then set my induction day for Jan 31st which will put me at 41 weeks and 4 days.

So here's to waiting

Ugh I feel your pain! Our Jackson/Jaxon's are very stubborn! I'm a one still too and officially over due! They did my ultrasound today and he was just napping peacefully and content. lol. If the cytotec doesn't work on Wed. I'll be getting induced the day before you! Good luck in hanging in there, Hopefully our boys come soon!

I am so sorry to hear that you went backwards hun that really sucks!! I can sympathise with the fisting appointments because even during labor she had to wait for a contraction to find my cervix without having to dig deep. I hope that both Jackson and Jaxon arrive on their own before the induction date.

What makes it worse is that one of my close friends (who is due middle of Feb.) had her baby today at noon lol. I'm pretty patient, I'm just getting worried because my OB always looks worried when he says "41 weeks and 4 days... that's to close" and shakes his head. Today he told me to make sure I do kick counts and if I even THINK he's not moving enough to head to L&D.

Oh no! I was really hoping the storm would move things along, for you. So sorry it didn't. I hope he decides to come out and meet his mommy before induction day. Good luck!

Seems like your OB may have lost a baby that he let go 'overdue'. While this is possible, the majority of stillbirths happen at 38 weeks. Yes, do your kick counts, but don't let him worry you too much.

I hope you go into labor before the induction. With my daughter my cervix was, high, closed, firm and posterior on Thursday and she was born at 3 a.m. the next Sunday. So cervix is meaningless.

I think he did, anytime we discuss induction he doesn't press the issue but he always emphasizes the dangers of going past a certain point. He knows I don't want to be induced and the 31st is okay for me because I really don't think I'll make it til then.

I have a feeling that labor will start out of nowhere, or my water will break like last time. I've been trying to relax myself, I think I may be pushing it off by constantly thinking about labor and why it hasn't happened yet.

Is there something you feel you need to finish up?

Not really, I keep thinking there's something I'm forgetting but honestly everything is ready for him. I think the biggest stress factor for me is knowing that my son won't be an "only" child anymore. I have 2 living children but only 1 who lives with me and I've never experienced 2 children at the same time.

My LO stayed high (-3) until I was 10 cm dialated which made cervix checks a whole lotta' fun, lol.

They finally had to break my water and add in some pitocin to get him engaged and moved down. Between the combination of those two things he moved down really quickly (too quickly if you ask me).

When he was born his hand came out squished right up against his head...I'm theorizing that is the reason he was being so stubborn about engaging.

Your LO will come soon!

Jenn
