I'm so discouraged right now. I am 39 weeks 5 days and just got back from the Dr. who said the baby hasn't dropped at all and I'm still only 1cm dilated. She said that if she can't feel a presenting part next week then I should prepare myself mentally for needing a c-section. She also scheulded me for an induction on the 21st (I would be just past 42 weeks). I know that first babies often drop a couple of weeks before delivery, but surely this baby still has time to get into postion and all hope is not lost yet?!? Do you all know of anything that I can do to encourage this little one to get down into the pelvis? It has been head down since 30 weeks but just hasn't budged since then...
