I posted earlier today about what my situation is.



Well, I got to my doctors and after they monitored baby's HR we discussed induction. My husband and I told her we did not want to wait any longer, we want to be induced now. She explained that her hands are tied because of the other doctor. She said they had a very heated discussion because he is going against our wishes. That we know the risks but feel its best for our situation. Also, that he doesn't feel that I have cholestasis enough to induce me right now but he also wont take me off the meds or stop the non-stress tests. So she called another doctor and I have a appt for a second opinion tomorrow.



She also checked my cervix and I was 70% Effaced so she dilated me to 1cm...HOLY HELL OUCH!!! She just said she was going to check me and then BAM she decides to dilate me without warning. ya...ouch. Hopefully my appt goes good tomorrow.

Probably just stretched her? I've seen other moms on here say something about it, but I'm not 100% about it.

I'm sure!! I swear, my OB had better not do that when the time comes... I will b***h slap her across the room when I get my fat ass up lol. I don't play... if I'm going to dilate, i'm gonna do it on my own, not with help.

Sweeping the membranes, the ob runs his/her fingers around the opening of the cervix.

She did it without telling you she was?

Membrane sweep. Happened to me too without warning grrr! I nearly hit the ceiling. The b*tch told me she was just going to check me then I felt her stretching......aaaaagh I still remember it well! She dilated me to a 3. Necessary coz I was in labour about 28 hours at that stage and still only 1cm but a little warning would've been appreciated!
