I have not gone. Apparently delivery suite is busy. Oh joy. So I'll get to go at some point just this side of never. Because health wise I'm fine, I'm so low priority I just keep going to the bottom of the list again and again

Oh, I'm sorry this is happening! It sounds like it's kind of a busy place up there right now...hopefully your water will be broken in the next couple of hours, and things will get going. Hang in there. That baby is coming! I'm sure the waiting and lying around, and the anticipation is awful!

Hello again all . So finally at 2.45pm they came to get me! My waters have been broken at 15.20 and I've been given till 17.20 to start contracting. Not likely . After that they will gently start me on Syntocinon. It has to be gentle because of my c-section last time. Interestingly not all hospitals are licenced to use the drip on a VBAC but University Hospital Wales (Cardiff Heath) is

Glad things are moving more in the right direction and great to hear that they haven't made your OH leave! Makes me a little less anxious!

Oh, you're having a VBAC! I didn't catch that the first time around, I'm sorry. Yeah, you're lucky you're being induced at all, then. In the U.S., it is not considered best practice to have an induction for a VBAC...if an induction is necessary, it immediately becomes a repeat c-section, for the risk of uterine rupture (with pitocin) is much higher during an induction after a section. But, I have heard of the Syntocinon, and how that creates "gentler" contractions, thus not creating the rupture risk that other induction meds can.

Good luck, and I'm glad they've finally done something for you! From here on out, go with the flow!

It's still supposed to hurt a lot more. They have told me I can have an epidural at any point. I'm not proud lol. If it gets too much then I will have one and that will be that. I'll be on constant monitoring for baby and to protect from rupture.

Also I think Syntocinon and Pitocin are the same. X

Blizzard, you're right, actually. They are the same. There is a different contraction-inducing med used here that is supposedly "gentler" on the uterus that SOME doctors are willing to do during a VBAC, but most still avoid induction for VBACs, and insist that women go into labor naturally, or else it's a repeat c-section. I can't remember the name of it, though.
