Hey ladies, I haven't been super active on here lately but I am 36 + 1 today and I am turning 30 today!! Weee! ANYWAYS I am facing induction set for Tuesday January 15th because of excessively high bps that could turn into pre eclampsia at anytime. Also this is my third baby and at this gestation everything with my health seems to go sideways... Baby is happy as ever but me? Not so much... This is my 3rd induction and because of my awful track record with them (both of my labors were excessively long because my body fights inductions) I was hoping for some tips to help things along or how to be assertive enough with the staff that I do not want to be left in labor for too long or sent home unmonitored. My second son was born a few days beyond 36 weeks and he has some severe learning and speech delays and some behavioural issues that I honestly can't rule out are due to him being distressed from being left inside for too long when things were progressing and I was left unmonitored when I was sent home a bunch of times during the process... Can anyone out there relate to my issues? I am all for whatever method of delivery that will bring a screaming healthy baby into the world. I am not afraid of pain and will do what is needed and even though this is my third baby I haven't given birth in a long time and feel like a newbie all over again... Please help me calm down and make a plan!!
