40+4 and my midwife says it’s doubtful I’ll go naturally 😣


I had an appointment and ultrasound yesterday, apparently I still have a lot of fluid and a long cervix (at least 3cm). My midwife did a partial sweep, but I’m barely 1cm dilated and still very high, so it was hard to get in there. She was so doubtful that I’ll go naturally before my scheduled induction (at 41+5). I’m feeling so depressed! I was induced with my first and it wasn’t a good experience. I was really hoping to go naturally this time.

Has anyone had any experience with things changing quickly? I just want to know if there’s any hope... I can’t stop crying since my appointment.
