Ok so I went in for my 38 week appointment only to find out that I have only dialated 1 more cm...so now I am up to 3, the doctor stripped the membranes again today and said we will see if that does anything...at the rate I keep going I will be pregnant till the end of August...UUUGGGHHH! I am no way ready for him to come but I am really anxious to meet my little guy. Sorry to vent when I am only 38 weeks and I know some women are pushing 40 weeks or more.

whoa.. it took 12 hrs just to get to 2 cm??? that doesn't sound too promising... if you don't mind me asking, how long DID it take for you to reach 10???

It took me 31 & 1/2 hours to go from 0-10 cm when I was induced with DS at 38 weeks due to BP issues.
