So I am currently 37 weeks and 6 days, this is my second pregnancy. My first I delivered at 35 weeks with ruptured membranes. Because of my preterm pregnancy, I have been on progesterone injections since 16 weeks to 36 weeks. I don't know why, but I just kind of assumed that when the injections stopped I'd go into labor soon after. However, as of my last appointment (Tuesday), I am not dilated at all!! I've been 50% effaced since 35 weeks, so no changes there. My doctor said he would sweep my membranes as soon as I dilated enough for him to get a finger in my cervix, infact at my last appointment, he tried to see if he could manipulate my cervix with no luck.
Now, I know you all are probably thinking, "You're only 38 weeks, just relax, it will happen soon enough". And you are completely right. However, I am a stay at home mom with nothing to do all day other than sit around and think about the fact that I'm not dilated at all and how ready I am to have this little girl! LOL
So I guess, I'm just curious, anyone been 38 weeks with no dilation but still delivered on time or early? Just wondering if I should be mentally prepping myself to say hello and goodbye to my due date....
(BTW, I am walking everyday, taking evening primrose oil, having sex, and even tried nipple stimulation, but had to stop cause my nipples are sore lol. So if you can think of anything else I could try to move this dilation along that'd be great!)
