My Wedding Bio!
Appt today at 40 + 4. Had an NST which was normal. Still only about 2 cm dilated. Dr did strip my membranes, which caused a really intense contraction in the office, but nothing since then. Induction tentatively scheduled for Thursday. Dr is hopeful, said my cervix is "favorable", so I won't need cervadil, and I was having some uterine irritability/small contractions on the NST which she said was a good sign that the uterus should respond to pitocin. Ideally would like to go into labor before then, but hoping at the very least for a successful induction. Fingers crossed.
38 week check up this afternoon (at 37+6). OB is on vacation so just saw the NP. BP good. Weight down half a pound but I think last week was inflated because if just eaten a mean right before. Skipped cervix check again. New nurse didn't really like that. She said "but you're 38 weeks...". So? Still not doing it.
@sarah12 are you driving yourself to this dinner? I would be more concerned about you being uncomfortable and then having a 45 minute drive back home. FTM here so I can't speak to the pain/discomfort associated with membrane sweeping, but I would think you'd have some discomfort afterwards.
