I am scared out of my mind. My cervix is still high and closed so I go back mon to be checked again and then induction starts on tue.

I didnt dialate at all with ds until the day he was born, at 39 weeks. So im really hoping thats what happens with this baby too. I dont want to be induced

Anyone have experience with a foley bulb? She said thats how we are going to start the induction and just the thought of it makes me nervous.
Wow... our stories are VERY similar! I was diagnosed with Cholistasis about 2 weeks ago, and went into the dr today for my 37 week check up. I had raised BP, which is NOT normal for me, and swelling in my feet and hands. They will be inducing me on Monday. I am soooo nervous. My cervix is soft, but closed, so I will be doing the same as you to attempt to get somewhere by Monday morning! I don't want to do the Foley Bulb I am REALLY hoping that the contractions I have been having get me somewhere this weekend!!!

Wow, thats crazy! Good luck! I'm really nervous too but I'm trying to stay positive. It makes me feel better knowing that this time next week Ill be holding my baby and my body can finally start to go back to normal. No more itching and normal bp!

Re: im going to have a baby next week..

Did you ever get put on Ursol? I found that putting medicated lotion (menthol) on itchy spots really helps. I couldn't find the Serna lotion that is supposed to help. I am also taking 3 Milk thistle tabs every morning which helps with liver health. that helps with your milk production too, so killing two birds with one stone! I almost cried when i read "This time next week I will be holding my baby". WOW. Sooo surreal. I don't know why it doesn't seem real yet for me, I already have 3 kids at home and all the baby stuff is set up!

Re: im going to have a baby next week..

I went from taking 3 orally a day and 2 vaginally at night and then my mw said to take 6 orally a day and shove 8 in your vag at night, don't need to pierce them, they are really good at melting in there and yes, wear a long pad. Semen helps too! Keep it in there for 5 min at least! Don't be afraid to take more, it can't hurt. You don't want to end up with a c/s!

Yep! But I don't know much about it besides that you're right on what it is and it does something to ripen to cervix perhaps? I'm considering starting something like this on April 15th, we'll see. I didn't do anything with DD to stimulate labor but this time we have a little bit more of a time crunch if we want to have my mw and not pay oodles to stay in a rental closer to her.

Nope, I didnt start itching until right at 37 weeks and it took me days to get them to even run the right tests. Of course everything came back normal but I am still itching and have a few other symptoms. So that and my bp being high theyre gonna go ahead and induce. I want to do it naturally but I go to bed every night worrying about the baby and then of course, the stress makes me itch more lol.
