I am scheduled to be induced about 39 weeks due to a blood clotting disorder and taking Lovenox injections. In the begining I really didn't have any issues with this but now after my Bradley class last night I am freaking out.
Class last night was all about labor drugs and how you don't need them and how "bad" they are. Ok fine I get it you don't want us to use them. But then my teacher started talking about how when you get an epidural you then usually need pitocin because birth slows down, then you will need fetal monitoring, and an IV, etc. She also made reference that if you have pitocin you will probably need an epidural followed by everything else. My biggest fear is being stuck in bed. I want to be able to move around use the whirlpool if possible and just have a natural birthing experience. Well now it sounds like it is inevitable that I am going to be stuck in bed throughout labor and delivery.
Has anyone been induced before and made it through without additional drugs? Or do you know anyone??
I see my doctor next week and I now have a huge list of questions for him.
I am feeling so anxious right now.
