What to do if I am 40 weeks pregnant and cervix won't ripen what can I do?

You doctor can help: Sometimes waiting another week can help. If not, there are a variety of ways to get a cervix to ripen. Medicines (prostaglandin formulations) are most commonly inserted vaginally to help this process when it is time to be induced. Alternatively, Foley catheter or laminaria can be inserted into the cervix to mechanically dilate the cervix. You doc will decide which is best for your situation. ...Read more

Is 127 a normal fetal heartbeat at 40 weeks pregnant.

Is 127 a normal fetal heartbeat at 40 weeks pregnant.

Yes…: The normal range for fetal heart rate (FHR) is 120-160, so 127 is considered normal. However, the FHR alone is insufficient in determining the wellbeing of a fetus. In general, a moving baby is a healthy baby. There are other tests to see if the fetus is doing well such as a non-stress test (NST). ...Read more

What can I say to my doctor so they will enduce me, I'm 40 weeks pregnant?

What can I say to my doctor so they will enduce me, I'm 40 weeks pregnant?

Don't say a thing!: I strongly advise against this. Induced labors have significantly stronger risk of complications for your baby including needing to be admitted to the ICU ; increased risk you will need a c-section etc. Please put the health of your baby ahead of your feeling a few more days of discomfort! Your baby will induce labor when it's ready. See http://pregnancy.About. Com/od/induction/a/risksinduction. Htm. ...Read more

What does cervix soft, 1cm long, closed. -2 mean at 40 weeks pregnant? Can this change and I still go into labour naturally without being induced?

Not quite ready: 1 cm means the cervix is only open 1 cm - has to get to 10 cm to deliver the baby. Long / closed - means the cervix has not softened up yet. -2 means the baby's head is still pretty high up in the birth canal. 40 weeks - full term! Natural labor is definitely a possibility ...Read more
