trying to stay confidentI'm new here... starting to get a little antsy after spending the last three+ weeks having false labor, and now heading toward a week overdue. (EDD based on conception was 9/3/06) I was expecting to be late (Jeremy and I were both late arrivals), but when I started having convincing [but false] labor so early, I started to think this guy would show up at least on time. I've been effacing for a month now--as of Wed. probably 80%--but not dilating. I have another appt. 9/14, and a BPP/ non stress test scheduled for the 18th. (The 16th will be 42 weeks.)
The only thing that makes me nervous is that my midwife mentioned that I might have trouble dilating because I had laser vaporization of my cervix for funky precancerous cells about 9 years ago. They are not an induction-happy practice, but if I don't dilate, it looks like I'm headed for pitocin. Blech.
Anyway--this is a refreshing change from the more mainstream DDC I peeked at, where it seemed like everybody and their sister were scheduling inductions at 38 or 39 weeks. yow.
