sorry its so long
good luck girls and congrats to those of you who are holding your little babies right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SOme do some dont. at only 1 CM and a bulging bag is strange.. not bad, I just have never heard of it happening with 1 CM and 40% effacement. I knwo when I was pregnant with my 3rd I had a bulger but I was 4 CM dilated with no productive contractions. My doc stripped the membrane and told me to go home and Id be in labor in no time. HE WAS RIGHT! I started having major contractions witrhin maybe 4 hrs after the membrane stripping and my bulging bag broke on the way to the hosp.. its wasnt a gush, just a trickle as the baby's head was kinda like a cork. LOL! Since youre due so soon has he ever mentioned stripping the membrane? Just curious as a lot of Drs wont do that and prefer the IV chemicals ....
Im due Dec 2nd... and Im pushing for the membrane thing cause it works SO well!
