Hey ladies, so im 40weeks today with my 3rd child and going through a very very slow beginning labor process. I have been 2cm dilated with a long high cervix for almost 3 weeks now(i naturally have a very high cervix btw) I have soften a bit but very slowly. I had my 4th (yes 4th 😥) sweep of my cervix today and its so painful to go through(not to mention my awesome ob says hold on while i roto root) I have been walking daily, cleaning house, tryed spicy Mexican,italian, and Chinese food, lots of garlic, basil and oregano tea, sex, squats, stairs, relaxing baths, pineapple(4 whole fresh ones). Im exhausted extremely uncomfortable, unable to sleep more then 2hours at a time,have god awful heart burn 24/7. This will be my 2nd VBAC so he is unable to induce me until I've progressed enough along that i just need a little extra push as my ob states. I want to avaoid a c section at all possible but he will only let me go a week over until he says its unsafe in his opinion. I have the go ahead from him to try every and any "home suggestion" wives tale" out there. So please if something has worked for you and i haven't tryed im all ears at this point this momma is tired lol.
