I was induced at 36 weeks with Jacob and he was 7lb 4oz and 22 inches so not sure if he wasnt a lil older than they thought but everything turned out fine and he was ok other than he had Jaundice pretty bad. reason for being induced was pre-eclampsia and they said my waters were getting low. I went in at 5 in the morning and he was here at 6:17 that evening I had a good experience with it. will probably be induced again this go around and was told Id need to be at least 37 weeks this time around
I was induced at 37 weeks due to having to much amniotic fluid.
I went in on the 5th august 2005, had kian at 7:30am august 8th, they used pesseries tablets to induce, 2 didnt work, the last one did...ive never known so much agony in all my life...the midwifes tried to examine me and i cried in pain, they wernt sympathetic just said c'mon it doesnt hurt that much!!
Cut a long story short hun, i went down to labour ward, tried pushing for an hour and he wasnt comming, so i was rushed in for a c-section but the surgeon wanted to try forceps first...so kian was right there in the birth canal, his head was so close but i couldnt get him out..his heart rate dropped, the midwifes was telling her to hurry and get him out...all in all it was a rushed c section, he came out with black eyes, and they gave me an extended uterine tare which led to a 3 hour operation straight after...i would never be induced again unless i REALLY had to...thankfully i will be having a straight forward c section this time round!
I probably have scared u sh*tless but i didnt intend to, but if they mess u about with making u push, forceps and ur baby isnt budging...dont let them wait till he is in so much distress that his lil heart rate drops...kian was very jumpy for awhile after, he had a traumatic enterance in this world bless him.
sounds like you had an experience with it!! heres hoping if i do get induced it wont be so traumatic. Last time around they tried everything to get Aria out all the gels the drips but i failed to get any further than 3cm. So i am a bit dubious if it will even work this time if i need to get it, all i know is if i leave it to term and the baby is massive there is no way he is coming out naturally, i don't have a big pelvis anyways and just have this feeling he will get stuck and they will have to force him out and like you said be all bruised and battered! I shall see what monday brings after my scan and when i speak to the consultant. xx
I was induced at 37 weeks exactly due to high blood pressure and protein in my urine. It took about 11 hours, 40 min of pushing. Everything went smoothly. I got an epidural at noon, and my little guy was born at 7:10pm. I'm gonna try to put off the epidural a bit longer this time, just so I'm not bed ridden for 7 hours again!
