Hi ladies,

Just thought I'd share my status.  Baby is still at -2.  I'm about 1 cm, but haven't thinned out yet and she said I'm still long-whatever that means.  So at this point, I'm scheduled for an induction next Wednesday if Gianna doesn't arrive before then.  I told the doctor that I don't want to be induced, but she's concerned that it would be difficult for me to deliver a baby over 9 lbs.  She's guessing it will be about that.

 Just a quick note...

Being 'long' just means that your cervix is still long, not effaced.  It starts out long , thick and tough, then softens, starts to thin and spread out, becoming shorter.  HTH

I was 38 weeks, 1 cm, and not effaced, at 39 I was 3 cm 50% effaced, and stretched easily to 5cm, so maybe things will moe well for you and no induction will hae to happen!!

Good luck!

Thank you!  I wasn't sure, but I thought it was in reference to me not being effaced.

I will be sending LABOR thoughts your way, hopefully over the next week things gets going for you.  If not, I have  been induced quite a bit and it always went real well for me....don't worry you will be fine!!

Sending labor vibes your way!

I was induced this last time and everything went great. but i have heard horror stories. If you are unsure about being induced i really think you should tell your doc no. How is she guessing baby is over 9lbs? DId she do an ultrasound? Or is it just by feeling your tummy. I would request and ultrasound if you can. I have had a 9lb baby and a 9lb 11 oz baby. I think you can do it. Look what Jess just had. 10lbs! And look how tiny she isHappy Wink

Well good luck in whatever you choose to do. We can't wait to hear your story and see pics!!

I can't believe you only have 3 days till your due date!!

Hope you will manage to avoid the induction as it really doesn't sound like your body is ready yet.  But you have a week's grace to DIY, or at least get things progressing more so I will keep everything crossed for you.

Enjoy your last few days of pregnancy, believe me, very soon you'll find yourself missing your full belly!!

YES! I had a 10 lb. 3 oz. baby with no problems, and I'm not that big. It can be done!

Thanks ladies!  I'm not worried about a big baby, I just want natural labor!!!!!!  I'm feeling like I might be having contractions right now.  I'm not sure.  Could be false labor.
