Had my 40 week appointment today and it went really well. I saw a different dr since mine is on vacation and the wonderful thing is he is all for natural child birth. Apparently, Maggie is staging a sit-in and strongly protesting coming out though he did say my cervix is softish. Also, it didn't hurt when he felt my cervix which is good since my dr. feels like he is searching for gold when he checks. I'm not sure if it didn't hurt at all because it has softened or just due to it being a different dr. I took my kids to play at one of those indoor inflatable parks for a couple hours then came home and raked the backyard. I haven't had a single contraction all day! One thing the dr. did tell me was with a bicornuated uterus a woman typically has the first born early (which I did) and the next one later and then later as it gets stretched out. I'm not sure if it just doesn't tighten up back to original size or what.

Also, he did bring up induction due to the fact that I am 40 weeks today and have made absolutely no progress and with my uterus I have the potential to really keep going. So, they are going to go ahead and schedule one for next Thursday and I will see my doctor Monday. The one thing the dr I saw today stressed is the induction can easily be cancelled and he would prefer that I go naturally. With DS#2 I was completely closed up and no dilation until I actually went into labor so we are hoping that is just the case with this one.

I'm hoping she comes out very soon though. As much as I do not want to be induced I am not sure how much more my hip can take. As it is, I have trouble standing up starting around the afternoon and by evening walking is difficult. I probably need a chiropractor but I have to see if insurance will cover any of it first.

Sounds like a good doc. I have the same hip thing and I just wonder if it effects child birth or will as my mom tells me, I will be in so much pain, I wont notice my hip.

Nothing wrong with going a few days over. Your doing well.

I think it will only affect delivery if I tense up too much for the muscle to relax. My problem is I have a bit of compression in the sacral area and it causes muscle tension. The more weight that is added the more tension the muscle experiences making it more painful. I notice that I go to bed on my side but lately I have been waking up flat on my back which so far is the most comfortable position I have found to deliver in.

I can feel something going on. Not much but something. Everytime I keep telling Maggie to get on with it but she is still here. Keep sending those labor vibes my way!
