We have dilation

So I have my first cervix check… And, um, that kinda hurt.

Anyway, I am around 80 percent effaced and 3 cm dilated, although she can stretch me to 4.


She also said we should schedule a date for induction, because she doesn’t want me and super huge baby to go beyond 40 weeks. So next Thursday was the date we chose.

Double OMG.

    I don’t want to be a know-it-all especially my 1st time commenting:) but…….I would make sure you have a bag packed! Because 3-4 cm, OMG indeed! You could go much sooner than next Thursday. My co-worker was 3 cm last week & came back from her dr. appt. to tell us that & all the nurses I work with who used to do L&D said she wouldn’t be back the next day. Sure enough, she went into labor that night. Anyway, good luck! I was 40 weeks yesterday & who knows when I’ll have him, but while the waiting is nerve-racking, it’s also kind of exciting!

    Wow, the big day is scheduled! And you’re already 3cm’s…holy crap! That’s great, becuase then you can go right on pitocin and not have to worry about using a ripening agent first. I was induced too…I was about 2cm dilated already…induction started at 11pm (I was admitted at 9pm)…they broke my water around 3/4am, and I went until 6am before getting an epidural (and I was in tons of pain already…man)…I was fully dilated by 11:30am…after a few pushes he was out at 11:52…smoothe delivery. I hope yours is just as smoothe…I can’t believe the big day is next week!!! So happy for you – you are about to embark on the most wonderful experiences of your life!!!
