I'm currently 38wks4days with my second baby, another boy. I was on Makena (progesterone injections) every week for 20wks starting at 16wks. I've got a 6 year old son who was born at exactly 35wks via emergency C-section due to fetal distress (late decels with his heartbeat with contractions) two hours after my water broke PPROM.
I've been having prodromal labor that sets in around 5-7pm and lasts around 12hrs every night for the last 4 nights. It is getting super old. I've tried everything except castor oil which I refuse to do because i'm already going to the bathroom constantly. Methods I've tried; DTD, yoga, birthing/exercise ball, hot baths, apple cider, walking, resting, not resting, etc. Because I'm 33, had a premature baby with PPROM and fetal distress and previous emergency c, and other health issues I'm scheduled for a C-section on the 29th when I'll be 39wks5days. My doc said if I meet any of three criteria to go to the hospital; contractions that are consistently 10 minutes apart, water breaks or bleeding. Well, I called last night to say I was going to come in and the on-call OB said "that doesn't sound like real labor, just wait it out." Even with contractions that were 8 minutes apart. I'm so frustrated! I'm sorry if I sound like a bitch but this baby has measured 2wks ahead the entire time and I'm just completely over being pregnant. I just want him OUT! Anyone else in a similar situation?
