I want to join even though only 36 weeks lol

I have a daughter thatís 6 that i went naturally with at 40w5d but ended up section due to cord in knot

I have twin boys i was induced with at 37 weeks, did pitocin labor for 20 hours ended up with section coz baby A was wedged lol

So even though this is 3rd pregnancy/4th baby Iíve never had a vaginal and never been dilated past a 7-8


I had a growth scan Monday and baby was 6lbs - 50th percentile

She was head down and facing my my back so perfect position labor delivery wise

I was 1cm dilated super soft but still in the thicker side which i was super surprised at, although i know itís not anything to get excited about lol

Another appt Monday but not sure if Iíll get checked or not

Good luck everyone

Welcome happiestmom!


Got the official word I'm being induced march 1st which is thursday ah! Very nervous since I'm doing vbac and midwife is hoping somehow i go into labor on my own before then so I've started evening primrose oil to help but not sure what else to do. They have to start my induction with Foley catheter since they won't do cervidil if you have a uterine scar. I'm hoping I go on my own. Reason they are inducing is because I have obstetric cholestasis and doctor is concerned if I go to due date or past. Very stressed and torn, I'd like for everyone to just leave me be but I know for baby's safety induction is best. I risk having another c section though if this doesn't work

Zephram, hopefully somethibf happens soon for you.
That plug is such a 'ohhh this may happen soon, give me hope" sorta thibg...except when its a massive letdown lol

I lost a HUGE piece of plug, all in one go yesterday afternoon. Ive never lost a big bit like that. Pretty sure it was the entire thing.
This morning i have overly soft BMs so i really hope this means something but im sure ill still be here for a.while
38+2 today.

Good luck Guppy! Really hope that much at once means something!!!

Having a lot of uncomfortable groin pain today when walking don't think it's indicative of labor, just yet another misery to get through until the end

Thanks! Turns out the plug was a total letdown, haha, as here I am another day later with ZERO signs of going into labour. I'm now 6 days overdue, the sweep didn't do anything, I've had no cramps or contractions, just lost that big glob of plug, but nothing since.

Having a CTG tomorrow so I think my midwife will try another sweep as we're coming up to my deadline, which is Wednesday. Booked on Wednesday for either induction or ELCS due to the fact my first was a EMCS (failed induction, which makes me not want to go this route again) and second a forceps VBAC that didn't turn out well for my vag.

I would love to go into labour naturally before having to make this decision!

Well ladies, I'm a mom! We had a boy!

He name is Nolan Thomas and he arrived on Feb. 23rd at 2:40pm. My water broke around 5 so we headed into the hospital. I wasn't contracting so around 8:30 after being admitted my OB put some gel in me to get contractions started. It worked VERY well and I progressed quickly. Had to have an IV for penicillin for GBS+ and did one round of pain meds through that around 12:30/1. Happy to say I didn't need an epidural (that was literally my only birthing goal other than healthy baby, but I was prepared to get one if I felt it was necessary).

I was only 2cm dilated when my OB checked me between 8 and 8:30. Shortly after 2 my nurse was going to take a lunch break, but decided to check me first and I was 10cm. My OB had left on vacation after seeing me so his midwife and the nurse delivered the baby. I felt great afterwards.

I put more details and a few pictures in my journal if anyone wants to check those out I hope you all get to meet your babies soon!
