Induced due to Hypertension - Birth story page 5! Pics page 8!
OK, so to those who have known about my blood pressure issues and stuff I was at the hospital on Monday to see my consultant but she was off. The women I did see said they wouldn't let me go to 40 weeks but weren't going to induce just yet. I went back today and my blood pressure was back up to /104 with +protein again. Baby's trace was fine!
Saw the same doctor today and she was all "I'm glad we waited and brought you back, but things are moving and changing again...we are going to induce you" so I text my mam and OH and said getting induced but dunno when next thing I know midwife comes back and says "ok, ready to come down to delivery?" so I asked when I'd be getting set off to which she said "within 30mins!" had to quickly phone OH and mam and ask them to leave work!
I'm in for a long haul though. Had the 24hour pessary and just being continuously monitored through out the night then checked in the morning - my cervix was slightly forward so wasn't as bad as it could have been. If this works they'll break my waters tomorrow and then start me on the drip. Fingers crossed!
I haven't had a chance to get scared it all happened so fast! One minute I was on a bp machine the next being induced! They've put a 24hour ribbon behind my cervix and THAT hurt but she's promised me that'll probably be the most painful internal so that's ok!
