My OB gave me 3 options. 1.Wait till labor happens on it's own. 2. Ripen my cervix Thursday night and induce Friday. 2. Ripen my cervix Tuesday night and induce Wednesday. My son's birthday is Wednesday so option 3 went out the window. She wants me to let her know by 5 today..



I'm so nervous I don't know what to do, I'm leaning more towards inducing Friday :oops:

No new babies yet? Aww it won't be long now they'll pop out left n right :)



W.e u decide for ur option good luck.



Nice birth story! Ugh stadol. Hated that w dd1. It didn't knock me out just made me loopy and "relaxed" to where I couldn't feel much or get outta bed bc of the effects.



Well OT but we moved into the new place. Last night was our first night sleeping here. Omg that sleep was ahhhmazing! I was soo tired from being up since 4am bc I also had my 2wk pp check up. Then we packed and unpacked until midnight. Got a lot put away tg for friends who helped us. And wouldn't u know it!? We were so worried bout bringing the bugs w us, I opened the brand spanking new microwave n there was one (dead) stuck to some factory seal tape. I really wanted to cry at that point. I've done 21 (been counting) loads of laundry the past 2 days just making sure everything is clean before taking it to the new place. Ugh. Anyways, my appt... Went well, was quick, kinda sad. Didn't check stitches bc no need to and I didn't want her to. Discussed labor and delivery stuff. They couldn't figure out mine and Aaron's heart rate. Once they did, his was too low and dropping more. The Ob dr thinks my uterus was starting to rupture, but the midwife strongly thought my placenta was detaching too early and when it did come out there was a bunch of clots behind it to back up the midwife's theory. So anyways, the lower than they'd have liked heart rate required the forceps. She said he was in distress and I was close enough at that point to deliver him vaginally but instead of letting me continue to push for however long that would've taken, the Ob dr used the forceps to get him out ASAP. Mw thinks that's why my labor was super fast that maybe my body knew something was wrong. So the forceps is why I tore as deep as I did she said. At my 6wk pp check up she said we might have to discuss physical therapy for my pelvic floor muscles to try and correct the incontinence. She said Aaron's head got stuck in the canal partly bc my pelvic bone area is on the smaller side esp for having larger babies. If I were to get preggo again, I could vbac again but bc of the risks the baby would be monitored for growth and prolly induce around 37 wks. Wasn't too happy w all of that but my good news? I went from 120-164 lbs w Aaron. After 2 ish wks I'm at 137lbs! 17 more to be back pre preggo!! Now if only my hip bones would go back as fast!



And good luck to all mamas w appts coming up!!!

Yeah I'd say option #2 as well. Just got back from the OB's and it wasn't a great appointment but she did say I was about 1 cm dilated. Here's how the appointment started with the nurse.



Nurse: So you're 37 weeks.
Me: Um, no i'm 38 weeks.
Nurse: ..No you're 38 weeks tomorrow.
Me: No, I was 38 weeks yesterday, it changes each Tuesday so i'm 38 weeks and 1 day.
Nurse: ....
Me: It's just a few days. Who cares.
Nurse: Yeah.



I just wanted to kick her out of my room. I'm in such a bad mood and she had the nerve to tell me when I was concerned about how nobody has checked on my fluids that only private practices do that. I was like "Uhh. No. That's not true." She was just so matter of factly and stuck up that I just wanted to snap. The midwife said she was able to feel my baby's head when she checked me which I thought was kinda weird. She says I just may be soon after all but no word on anything else and no other tests or other checks.

Went to the docs today for my 38 week appt and still for the third week in a row I'm dilated to a 1 with no effacement! Ugh I'm so frustrated! My SO's parents will be here less than a week after my due date from Florida, we live in Utah. This will be the first time I'm meeting them so the whole trip is so they can meet me and their new grandson. With my luck I'll still be pregnant when they get here!

I am so exhausted. Went to my nephew's graduation last night and there was no place to sit down. They wouldn't let us bring our balloons in so I had to tie it to the fence and somebody stole them. >=(



How dare they steal a pregnant woman's balloons! And on top of that they kept smoking since it was outside in the football stadium so I really had no safe zone to stand since it was so windy.



My feet were so swollen they were bulging out of my shoes it was so gross. Not to mention I have to do our niece's graduation now tonight and I just really don't want to go. I'm kinda upset with the hubs' family because they keep pretending they care about my condition but yet his sister writes us an email emphasizing how important it would be to our niece for us to attend and kept drawling it out in a way that makes you feel like a jerkoff if you refuse to go. My two sister in laws are always competing with each other and using their kids to do so and it just irritates the crap out of me. I'm already tired and miserable; I don't care to be part of your petty wars. I hope I just suddenly go into labor before this afternoon.

I wouldn't go if I didn't feel like it. Screw them! You're pregnant, that's enough of an excuse to not do something you don't want to do. Tell them you're nauseous, tell them your back hurts and you can't get out of bed, tell them you've been having braxton hicks all day, or tell them you just don't feel like it. :lol: And don't worry.. the swelling WILL go away once your little one gets here. I thought my feet and ankles would never get back to their original form but they FINALLY did! I have skinny feet once again! lol

Good to know that there's a light at the end of the tunnel, my feet just look so atrocious. I haven't gotten a pedicure in so long and I honestly wouldn't even want to go because my feet just look so nasty. Hmm. But yeah as much as I don't want to go tonight; his sister is such a b about things that I'd rather not give her the chance to say that I favor one sister over the other since I did go to my other nephew's graduation. My nephew has like.. a 5.0 because of the number of AP courses he took and such, so he gets glorified by my hubs' parents so there's so much stiff competition there that the other SIL has to get all in our faces (by email because it's the cowardly thing to do) when she wants things her way. It's retarded. Sorry to vent about that. If this was earlier on in the pregnancy I'd be handling it so much better.

I know I should just get them done. It's funny because I usually have no problems with spoiling myself, but ever since I got preg with Claire I just can't do it anymore. Especially since I haven't been working; I just can't justify spending money on myself when I can totally spend it on something for her.




But hey at least you'll have cute looking toes when it comes time to deliver? I'd do my own if I could reach. xD

I can still reach mine just fine but its nice to just relax. It was way overdue anyhow!
