saw my OB today, and I'm still not dilated at all. I am 40 weeks tomorrow. I talked him into waiting to schedule an induction, but he did schedule me for a sono and NST next weds to check the baby. All of a sudden I'm not so impatient to hold my baby- my dog has a nasty ear infection, and I want to get her well before I go in. The OB laughed until I told him my mutt weighs 155 pounds, and I doubt anyone else will clean her ear daily if I am busy in the hospital having a baby...then he said he thought I could wait another week! heh!

He mentioned that I have scar tissue on my cervix he thinks may be keeping it from dilating. Has anybody else here run into this? I had a conization of my cervix 13 years ago to remove pre-cancerous cells, and have had no issues ever since.

i was checked at 40wks and was also neither dilated nor effaced, no history of cervical scarring either. i'm trying not to stress about it, but i feel like i'm up against the wall a bit

I've been googling it- and not liking what I'm reading! Conizations TRIPLE my risk of having a c-section! and the scarring can prolong labor. ick...

Ugh! BUMMER. Well can you bring this up with your doctor? Maybe he'll have some understanding?

Apparently massaging the cervix with EPO can help scar tissue issues.

hmmm. I doubt I can reach my own cervix, much less massage it. I'll google it and see if there's some way to get this done...
