I'm 41 weeks on Monday. Seriously so over this pregnancy..
For some history, I was induced with my first at 41+1 and over 24 hours later it led to csec. This was 5.5 years ago. My second came at 38 weeks...labor was super fast. Like contractions to baby being in my arms in 3 hours. This was 2 years ago.
Now with my 3rd, we were sort of expecting a fast delivery. Everyone and their mom told me their story of the 3rd child coming fast, etc so we've been actively waiting since like 37 weeks. I have been pregnant FOREVER! Because of my previous csec, I cannot be induced so the doctor wants me to wait as long as I can before another repeat surgery. She's confident that bc I had a med free vbac 2 years earlier, I can have still have a natural birth. She's willing to let me go to close to 42 weeks.
We have tried everything!! spicy food, mexican food, acupuncture, bouncing on yoga ball, walks, pineapple, clary sage essential oils, pineapple, nipple stimulation, membrane sweep twice,etc. My husband I even did BD twice. There's a local eggplant Parmesan dish that's famous for inducing labor and we even made a trek out there to eat it. Nothing is working, I'm still pregnant and miserable.
Last Thursday, I was 3.5 cm dilated, 80% effaced, and having minor contractions according to NST. These numbers sound promising but it's been like that for awhile.
No real question. Anyone have similar stories?
