Had my dr appt today. No protein in urine and bp good so better than last week. She checked me and said I am dilated 1 cm and my cervix is soft. She tried to strip membranes to get things going but was not too successful. Nst was ok. Alyson was not maintaining high heartbeat when moving for 15 sec so made me drink cold water. At one pt couldn't get heartbeat. The nurse said where did you go and she kicked really hard. It was funny the nurse said she has never had a baby answer her. Once I drank the water the nst looked fine. She said to make an appt in a week but she doubts I'll need it. Yay!! She's almost here.
Yay!! Soon now have you had your membranes stripped before? I had mine done at 38 weeks last time and I wouldn't do it again. I did go into labor three days later but it was 3 days of discomfort!!
I never had they never did it with dd. She couldn't get them today and I was uncomfortable for most of the day. I probably wouldn't do it again to be honest since she couldn't get them and it was so uncomfortable.
Yeah- I totally had no idea what I was asking for when I asked my doctor. It was three days of really bad contractions super sporadic. I just remember thinking- I'm never doing this again lol. I'm not even positive if that's what did get dd2 out. Anyway- I'm hoping she makes her arrival soon for your sake I know I'm ready and I still have 6 weeks lol
