  • Yea my body never liked the checking so we cut it out til I felt real contracions . Plus my body already was in pain from carrying such a heavy baby.

  • Yep Same thing happened to me. My decided that no matter what they did to me i was NEVER going to go into labor, lol. I had my membranes stripped and walked for miles with both kids. BLAH. My first was 42 weeks and with the second I pushed induction and should have had her at 39 weeks but it just wasnt progressing so at 40wk 3 days i pushed for an induction. Little one number one weighed in at 9 pounds 8 ounces and it was an all natural birth! They are better from my experience fyi.

  • yes, that's why we stopped the checking. It made me bleed and cramp for 24 hours everytime.
