xp: almost 40 week appointment- Fail

Saw the doctor today, no progress, no effacement, no dilation.  If LO doesn't show some promise of coming by the 14th we have to schedule a c-section.  I can't be induced because I was going for a vbac and LO is getting quite large so Doc doesn't want to wait too long.  I just feel like crying.  This is not how I wanted things to be.  As long as LO is healthy it will be ok but I can't help but be disappointed.

  • I'm sorry you didn't get the news you wanted today. Just keep reminding yourself that internals really don't tell you anything. You can go from nothing to labor in a short period of time. So not having any activity doesn't mean you won't go into labor tomorrow. I've got my fingers crossed for you!

  • I'm really sorry that you had a disappointing appointment today.  I hope that things change quickly for you.  Have you thought about possibly scheduling some acupuncture?  Will your doctor consider a gentle induction as opposed to an automatic c/s if it comes down to it??

  • Ditto pp - and try all those natural induction techniques (sex, acupuncture, spicy food, walking, etc).  Will your doctor consider a foley catheter induction - no chemicals and I believe a very safe induction method for VBACs. Good luck!!
