I went to the Dr yesterday because again I was having contractions that became progressively stronger for over 24 hours. Doc told me that my cervix was thinning out, but that I still wasn't dilating. He said that he thought that by the end of the weekend I would have a baby.
Then he instructed me that if my contractions became 5 minutes apart for longer than an hour that I needed to head to the hosptial. Also if my water broke or I started bleeding I needed to go. So I agreed and asked him if he would do anything if I went to help me along - since I have done this 2 times before and it took 27 hours of an induction to get me to dilate to 2cm with my daughter....
He said that if I was pumping out contractions without cervical change that he would help assist the dilation process- once I hit 37 weeks
I will be 37 weeks on Saturday.
My contractions sped up yesterday afternoon, I called the office and told them that we were going to hospital - doing what I was told to do. My dr is not on call, his wife is. So they monitor me for 2 hours and asked me all the questions - then proceeded to tell me that I was lying to them about what the dr told me. That it is a medical liability for him to help me at 36w5d. All because this stupid nurse wouldn't shut up to listen to me explain fully. She then went and called the doc on call and she agreed that I was lying and to send to me home.
I am beyond pissed off. I am regretting more and more not going to the hospital on post. The nurses at the city hospital have been nothing but obnoxious to me - telling me that I am lying and faking contractions..... not quite sure how you fake contractions that are coming up on the monitor every 3 minutes just like I told them - but ok.....
I had more respect from nurses when I was 17 and having my daughter than I do at 26 with my son.
My husband and I have decided that we are just going to wait it out and stop going in. All it does is upset me and he hates the way the nurses are treating me.
So lets see if I end up with a home birth - lol
after how difficult this pregnancy has been - the nurse that called me a liar asked me about my other birth and I told her about the induction - she pretty much told me that I probably won't dilate and will have to be induced again, so I might as well stop coming in and hoping that my cervix is changing, cause it's not going too. That comment set me off even more - seeing as I do not want another 3 day induction and my doc promised that wouldn't happen. I feel more and more helpless and more and more like I will end up with a c section or a very long induction.
I just want this kid out of me - he is huge - everyone tells me I am lying - and i just want to cry.
