I am 37 weeks pregnant with my 5th baby. However, this will only be my 2nd child. After the 3rd miscarriage we found out I have an incompotant cervix. My stitch was taken out a week ago. Unlike last time however I had scar tissue form on my cervix. The dr didnt say anything about this causing problems but I now find out it may be preventing me from dialating. The baby dropped almost a month ago so I have had alot of pelvis pain and pressure. However since my stitch came out it has gradually gotten worse and the last 3 days have been unbarable. I have been having contractions all week with lots of pressure. I ended up in the hospital over the weekend and and was told that even with all of this after a week my cervix has not changed from the 1 centimeter and 50% eface it was when my stitch came out a week ago and they think it is due to this scar tissue. I was already going to be induced at 38 weeks so after being monitored for over 2 hours and having contractions the hole time they gave me a shot for pain and sent me home to wait and see my dr today. The on call dr didnt want to do anything to include pain meds to get me through till I saw the dr today. The nurses agreed with me in that everything that has been happening to me, the back/pelvis pain and pressure, the loss of appitite, the all around feeling of being uncomfortable and aggitated, contractions, pressure and over active baby are signs that my body and baby are ready to deliver. However because of the scar tissue nothing is happening and that they will need to induce to get things to finish taking off. My question then is if they decide to still make me wait another week to induce is there anything I can do on my own to try to get my cervix to dialate past this scar tissue and if not at least some thing I can do to help releive the pain and what not to be able to some what relax before she gets here. Sorry so long but I wanted to make sure anyone that responds has the hole story so they can give their suggestions for what is happening rather then having to try and guess then give suggestions. I hope their is someone out there that can help!
