Induction date

Recommended Posts

I can't wait, I now have my induction date, it's the 3rd Jan when I will be 38+3 days.

 

It can't get here soon enough, I'm so excited :) I really didn't want to be induced again, I found it rather traumatic 2 years ago but now as time has gone on, I just want her here as safely as possible but I'm definately going for an epidural this time lol.

 

Just wanted to share :D

Well my induction didn't exactly go to plan. I went in on the 3rd only to go home that evening as there were a lack of special care beds, I was then re-admitted on the 5th and the induction started with a 24 hour pessary.

 

On the 6th my waters were due to be broken but yet again there was a lack of special care beds so I was sent to a different hospital. I didn't get to the new hospital until 9.30pm so my waters were due to be broken the following morning. After a few delays, I finally made it onto the labour ward where my waters were broken and drips set up for the induction.

 

A few hours on and there was a lack of progress even though I was contracting well, the midwife wanted to monitor the baby more efficently so wanted to place a monitor on her skull, unfortunatly it was discovered that baby was coming arm first, a consultant was called who tried to push her arm back in :eek: which failed so I was rushed to theatre for an emergency c section.

 

We were warned beforehand that her arm could be fractured or shoulder dislocated but thankfully she only suffered bruising..........so finally Evie arrived at 12.05am on the 8th Jan weighing 7lb 9oz :)

Glad baby is healthy and all is well! I have to tell you I brought up Evie as my favorite name if we were having a girl, and my husband vetoed it :( I think it's adorable and a little different :) As it turns out, we're having a boy, so...water under the bridge!
