Unhappy disappointed :(

I had my 38 wk appt tonight and got my exam, that I have been waiting to get to see what is going on. And well, I am only 1 cm dilated and still pretty thick cervix, the baby is head down, but still high up. I am disappointed as I have been doing things to try and get this baby to come early, all the stimulation and the sex, has really done nothing. I am going to try and use some primrose oil capsules. so needless to say, I am kinda disappointed, was hoping to go soon. He say, nope, not tonight lol.

Can I put the capsules up there if I am starting to dilate? any other suggestions on getting the cervix to soften and thin out, besides the sex lol. thanks

Re: disappointed :(

The evening primrose capsules are safe at any point. I'd say go for it !

I'm so sorry nothing is happening it really is discouraging. I hope that maybe the primrose oil will get things softened up for you.

I wish I had some more suggestions but I really don't. I will be praying though!

Love and Prayers, Kelly

Re: disappointed :(

Just exactly how do you use the evening primrose oil???

I took this orally as a vitamin supplement for many years up until I got pregant. It was AWESOME for my skin, hair, and nails!!!! My doc said to stop my vitamin routine & do the pre-natals. Something about EPO can bring on labor.

Are you taking EPO orally...are you breaking the capsules & putting the oil up at your cervix?? Just how is that done? Are you using the standard capsules like people take orally, or is there a different EPO for what you are doing??

Thanks.
Gayle

Re: disappointed :(

Hi Gayle! I take two capsules and insert them before bed (starting at 38 weeks). They don't need to be broken open or anything they just kind of melt. The idea is to help ripen the cervix. It's not always effective but for some people (me included) it does the trick.

Love and Prayers, Kelly
