I am 41wks, 2 days pregnant w/ a singleton. dilated to 1cm and 50%. this is my second pregnancy. I had a c-section w/ my twins due to going into kidney failure at 35wks. Anyhow I am getting very discouraged about this labor. I have hardly had any contractions. I am huge, super uncomfortable and wondering if it is ever going to happen. I really want to have a successful VBAC and have been told I am a great candidate, however nothing is happening! They will not induce me due to risk of uterine rupture w/ hx of c-section. And scheduled a c-section at 42 weeks if I don't go into labor by then. I was told my chance of successful VBAC significantly decrease at 42 weeks. I have been walking, climbing stairs, doing acupuncture but nothing. They did an ultrasound and NST yesterday and everything looked good for the baby. I was hoping they would strip my membrane, but they said they can not since I am only dilated to 1 cm. The plan is to break my water the day before my scheduled c-section to exhaust all methods, but I am wondering if that will even be possible if I don't dilate any more. I should note I have been at 1cm for 5 wks. I feel like I am one of those women who does not go into labor. I am so frustrated and losing hope of a vaginal delivery. Any tips, ideas or a pep talk would be great. Thank you!
