Hi ladies, I am 39 weeks with my second child and at docs on weds I found out I was 2cm dilated and 50% effaced so had a s&s done. I have been having false labour/early labour for weeks (a few hours a day of fairly regular mildly painful contractions and period pain). Bub has also been 2/5 engaged for the last 2weeks.
My DH starts a new job on Monday after being out of work for the last three weeks which is really bad timing as he can't really take more than a day or two off if bub is born during the week and I was wondering if I happen to be more dilated now whether I could ask for AMR? I don't even know if that's allowed, and also know that it may not actually send me into active labour and could mean I then need the Syntocin drip etc which I really don't want as I'm aiming for a natural hosp water birth.
Has anyone else had AMR before active labour and what was the outcome? As in did u need further interventions/inductions? What do you think? I just really want my DH to be able to have as much time as he can with bub so it would be great it he/she arrived tonight!!
