I was due last week, 2/23. If I'm still pregnant on Tuesday (3/1), my midwife will be sending me home from my appointment with a foley catheter. Anyone have luck with this induction method?? I'm praying I go before then, but I can definitely see this little guy stayng in for as long as possible.
I haven't personally, but I know it's been used and is probably one of the better ways of inducing since it's not chemical. I have heard it can be painful while it dilates you.
I was wondering, why does your m/w want you to be induced if you were only due on the 23rd?
I would ask about 41 weeks 6 days for induction, instead of 41 weeks.
I would work with the midwife and OBs for biophysical profiles if that would win you the 41/6.
I would start on doing natural things to get baby moving out:
sex, nipple stimulation, some say certain foods, walking, acupuncture, massage,
evening primrose oil that kind of stuff.
Good lucj and VBAC wishes!
That is fantastic! I'm happy to hear it and congratulations on your VBAC!! I love that avatar pic!! What a glorious moment.
