38 week appointment Kimmy Gibbler 2 kids; Grapevine, Texas 8039 posts

Had my 38 week appointment today. Still only 1/2 cm dilated, even though I've been having contractions. My doctor said it sounds like I'll probably be having back labor judging from where they hurt (my upper back, which I thought was weird, but I guess that makes sense). If she hasn't come on her own by the 22nd, my doctor will try and break my water. She can't give me Pitocin because I'm trying to have a VBAC and apparently that's risky, so if breaking my water doesn't work, I'll have to have another C-Section. REALLY hoping for a VBAC!! Hoping for some serious progress in the next couple of weeks!!!

I kinda wish mine wouldn't. It's nice to know what's going on, but it's really discouraging when there hasn't been any progress! And really, I know that early dilation isn't a great indicator of when you will actually go into labor, so it's kinda pointless discouragement! Haha.
