I came here thinking I wasn't sure if should complain about my appointment today but like @MissMerciBeaucoup said - it is so nice to commiserate with everyone who has an inside baby and is getting no progress at their appointments.
Just came back from mine and literally no change. Despite contractions for a month. My fiancé works for a small company so he isn't required to get paternity leave and has 6 days of PTO to use (but then will work from home while I am on leave). So I asked if we could schedule the induction on Saturday the 25th when i was 40w5d so that he didn't have to use PTO days in the hospital. They said they don't schedule inductions on the weekends and wont schedule until I am between 41 and 42 weeks. They also don't seem concerned with my possible fast labor due to LEEP and that I live 50 mins from the hospital.
Like everyone else, I'm in a bummer mood and my patience is wearing thin. I just want a light at the end of the tunnel. I'm miserable and want some sign that something is happening soon.
ETA: the thought of having a March baby as a very real possibility is overwhelming. It made me cry, I wont lie.
Here's a fun new symptom today: I can't breathe. It feels like someone is stepping on my chest and/or throat and I can't get a deep breath in. Which is strange because the baby dropped a long while ago. I guess he's probably just getting so big that I have no space left? I don't know but it sure is annoying.
Have any of you noticed LESS Braxton hicks? For awhile I was having them all the time and the closer I get to my due date, the less frequent I feel like they are becoming. Maybe just because soon they will be real contractions instead?
+1 anti induction with this kiddo since I was induced with #1 at 37wks, and still have regrets about not fighting it a bit longer. However, now that my due date is almost here (19th) and I'm more pregnant than I've ever been, Oh how tempting that offer would be if it was given to me now! My midwives won't induce till 42wks... so it's mostlikley not going to be an issue--but boy is the patiently waiting for natural labor hard!
