Progress!

So what are your current stats? Are you dilating and effacing yet?

I just got back from my appt and I am 3cm dilated, about 80% effaced, baby is at -1 station and she stripped my membranes! YAY! Im hoping things start happening soon.

Re: Progress!

I checked myself again tonight, my cervix is much more forward than it was before and so much easier to find. I can fit 2 fingers in which is about 1.5 inches and roughly 3cm, I could be totally wrong and my OB will check next week but her head is still *right there* and my cervix is nice and short and open

Re: Progress!

Sigh - I was checked yesterday and cervix is only *maybe* 30% effaced. No dilation. I was hoping for something - anything, but I guess at 36 wk 2 days I shouldn't complain too loudly. I just really, really don't want another C-section, and I only have until the end of the month before my OB won't do a VBAC any more. I will say this, though - every time I go in to see her, she seems more and more positive and pro-VBAC. That's a good thing, right?

Re: Progress!

I'm 38 weeks, and nothing. I've had some good contractions, but each time I go hopeful for progress, OB tells me cervix is still long, and not thinning and no dialation. Though, with my other three, I had nothing, and then went over...and each time I saw the OB in the morning with no change, then had a baby within 24 hours. So, I'm still hopeful that I'll give birth before this baby turns into a toddler.

Re: Progress!

My doctor doesn't check unless there's been some kind of action going on or you're due/overdue. I've been having tons of contractions since Monday evening, but nothing else. Myabe he'll check me tomorrow just so we'll know what's happening in there before he goes away next week. I can't believe my luck. With the last baby, he was leaving for a few days the day after my appointment. But I was actually overdue and started crying so he felt pity on me and induced me. Good thing, she was 9lbs 14oz, and the cord was around her neck. I told him she had been spinning in circles in there and didn't seem very comfortable, but he didn't think spinning was very likely at that point. He was wrong!! Anyway, hopefully I don't have him while he's gone. I can wait until the night of the 14th, when he returns!!

Updated....I am only 1 cm dialated. He said all those contractions haven't done a lot. But who knows, I could still go into labor anytime. I also lost another pound, but he didn't say anything this time. I guess because my belly actually grew instead of shrinking. That's all I have to report for today. Maybe next week will be more exciting!!
