So im 39 weeks. Been having pointless contractions since 32 weeks. Been admitted for ptl and all that. But now that im far enough along they slowed down. Had my second membrain sweep today.. lost mucus plug/bloody show twice. Im a vbac canidate but have a c section scheduled for saturday just incase. My doc doesnt want me to go overdue cause of my previous abuption and c section. I wont go pass 1.5 cm. So Im just hoping and praying he comes before saturday. He said I can refuse the c section but he doesnt advise it. Im just confused abd stressed on what to do. Ok.. end of rant.

Good luck I hope u go soon. I am trying for a vbac too I have 25 days till my scheduled c-section so I've been walking squatting I have my next appt Thursday I'm gonna ask them to sweep my membranes then. I don't want him early but I don't want a repeat. N I've been have contractions for like 2 weeks now but nothing really timeable.

So u know exactly how I feel!! Its very confusing to me. Cause I feel if I get the section im doing it to be selfish cause im so miserable and I want to meet him so bad. Plus its scheduled on my bestfriends bday who passed away.. but I kniw what its like to vaginally deliever too and theres nothing like it. So im racking my brain on what to do. Like my doc said today.. I can refuse my section and go over due if I want. He just doesnt like doing that with vbacs. I guess ill wait to see how I feel friday night or so.. maybe I wont be so discouraged then I can cancel it. I hate being an impatient person. Expecially when it comes to this.

Aww good luck momma I never heard of that kind of induction but I hope it works for u. I have started taking evening primrose my midwife said I can start it today. They suck tho they won't strip my membranes until 39 weeks which pissed me off not that I don't want to be pregnant anymore I just don't want surgery I know u know girl. But I took my first pill this morning it isn't doing anything yet but hopefully eventually. I'm supposed to take it 3x a day so we will see if I go before the 19th. That and I so bought a whole pineapple and ate it lol. That didn't do anything either but it sure tasted delicious lol. Let me know how u make out I'm going to go google the induction ur having cuz my ob said they won't do anything but if I go in there knowing some shit I won't take no for answer lol. :)
