Doctor’s appointment went well this morning.
I am dilated to a 2, 2½. Great progress from Wednesday. He stripped my membranes again.
If I do not go into labor by Sunday, I am to go to labor and delivery at 4pm. I will receive an enema (Yay!… Not!)(Apparently my doctor likes a clean delivery. Lol) about an hour or two after he will come in and place something called laminaria into my cervix. It is the only method that he can use with my previous c-sections. Basically it is a seaweed stem that will absorb the moisture and gradually swell to help dilate and soften my cervix. It will have to be in place for 12 hours. During that 12 hours, I will have to lie flat and use a bed pan if I need to use the bathroom. Ugh! This all sounds so exciting, right?!
After that 12 hours he will check my progress and we will see where things go from there.
I have had a lot of cramping and bloody show from this mornings appointment.
Funny TMI: I have not worn a pad in years and now I’m wearing this pad that they gave me (because of the bloody show) and I feel like I’m walking bowlegged and waddling. LMAO! I forgot what it felt like to wear these things!
Wish us luck guys!!!
