congrats to all us mommas!! what a beautiful crazy amazing 3 weeks it's been!!!
so we tried two rounds of cervidil - 24 hours- which caused contractions ... but no progress at all... they stripped my membranes too... but my cervix was still high and only at 1-2... so we opted for a c-cection... and we are so glad we did! phoebe was born healthy and beautiful... the outcome we hoped for!!
phoebe Skye is here!! she arrived at 8:22pm feb 26! 6lbs9oz, 19.25"
I'm in l&d.... cervidil applied and going to sleep now.... hoping it works to get things going so I can continue on a 'natural' approach.... but whatever happens I am just excited to meet my girl!
congrats pattimomma!! well, it looks like I'm getting induced... my OB doesn't want to take any risks with the low fluid levels and also my age-38- so I'm gonna go to hospital tomorrow night and prob get cervadil to try to start things.... my cervix is soft but closed.... so she can't even strip my membranes.... so tonight, I'm having lots of sex! and perhaps some things will change before tomorrow night! otherwise, it looks like this girl might arrive on her due date,...
congrats to all you mamas and baby's!! please keep me in your thoughts... my edd is Wednesday.. but my OB wants me to come in today and check my amniotic fluid levels... if they're low today she wants to induce... I'm so ready to meet my little girl, but I'd love to have more time to give her a chance to come without an induction...
thanks pattimomma! yes-- definitely sex too! gotta get it while I can! 😜 my OB did actually send me to a specialist who has been checking my fluid levels as well since December, like every 4 weeks. my last appt was almost 2 weeks ago, and they said I looked great.... that I graduated... but then at my OB appt she said I looked low again... I kinda freaked out at the word induction... but I'm calming down now and realizing, like what you said, there's more options still,...
thank you ! I bought a tincture of black cohosh too. I will be walking and squatting and sitting bouncing on my birth ball too! I tried the EPO for a few nights by leaving the capsule in overnight, but between the capsule and mini pad and underwear I felt like I was gonna get a yeast infection...! ahhh, last thing I want right now!!!!! but then I read about opening the capsule and massaging it on your cervix... I'm not sure I could reach!? anyways--- I understand if my...
hey ladies-- I'm 39 weeks today... just finished a Non stress test (NST) at hospital which went great... and then a drs appt... she's been monitoring my fluid levels, which have been on the low side of normal. I've been drowning myself in drinking water which helped at my previous appt, but was a bit neglectful the last two days before this appt... (plus I'm living in record heat right now in so. California)... anyways, she wants to see me back on Monday to check fluid...
hey- thanks for both articles! I enjoyed them both! getting excited and anxious at 38w6d!!
