unfavorable cervix ?


Well I just got back from my 39 week appointment and the dr said my cervix was unfavorable...what does that mean? He said he would see me again Tuesday and should induce by the end of next week as the baby is really big already (9+lbs) but Im pretty sure he said if it was still unfavorable he wouldnt induce?? does that make sense or was I hearing him wrong?

It means u aren't dialated and your cervix is still long and high. This was the same with me but they went ahead and induced me as baby needed out!! The induction didn't work and I ended up having a section. They don't like to induce when u are unfavourable as it has a high failure rate that ends in section x x

ah, ok, thats what I thought, did a little reading and seems like the failure rate is high. I was really hoping to be induced next week only because baby is SO big and my first was 10lbs so if they let me go much later than that we're looking at an 11lbs+ baby eeekkk

You can have a big baby followed by a much smaller baby....my sister did!

I have read that Evening Primrose Oil (orally and vaginally) as well as sperm can make the cervix more favourable...

Yup, EPO can help ripen the cervix, as can sex. It can change very quickly, so you may be in a different position next week x

it can literally change within hours hun. the reason they stopped doing internals here (uk) is a woman can be unfavourable at 10am and by 2pm be totally the opposite and ready to go !! by next week you could be good to go x x

oh I know, I dont know why I have such big babies, my husband wasnt overly big, I was tiny as a baby, no one in my family or his family has really big babies...Im pretty small normally so the drs cant believe it when I get huge and end up with a huge baby lol
