for a medical reason (not because you were just done being pregnant), was your baby (or babies) born healthy?
carrotsoup70:I had a RCS at 37w2d because my first pregnancy ended in stillbirth at 37w5d. He was and is healthy.
I'm so sorry for your loss.
Mrs&Dr2b:I had to be induced after my water broke but I didn't start contracting. (we waited over an hour and there was not a single contraction so they started the pitocin). I wound up with a C-section because he was facing the wrong way (up instead of down) and he was born completely healthy and still is thankfully. I tell you all this because that is something to keep in mind, if you are induced C-sections are more likely.
Do you mean he was breech or "sunny-side up"? My baby was sunny-side up until a few hours before he was born, and he never made it completely facing down. They had to vacuum him out and there was no talk of a C-section...
I was induced at 36w 5d for pre-eclampsia, gestational hypertension, and DS's heart rate dropped several times during long term monitoring. He was born perfectly healthy, big for his gestation (6 lbs 6.8 oz, 19.5 in). The only problem was his mouth wasn't mature enough to latch for breastfeeding, but he has had no problems taking a bottle since day 1. I just needed a vacuum assist since I have a very low lying pelvis.
Induced at 39 weeks due to GD. 12 hours later, and 13 minutes of pushing he was here and perfectly healthy.
I was induced at 41 weeks becuase I was still not dialated and baby hadn't dropped yet. Even with induction, I was only dialated to 2, enough to break my water and never went any further. I never felt any of the contractions and they were big ones too, and he never dropped and descended. I ended up with a c-section 24 hours after induction was started and had a very healthy baby girl. However, she had difficulty latching on thus, we couldn't breast feed. My friend tried to tell me it was because she was induced and delivered by c-section, however, I know there is no truth to that. Turns out after lots of blood work, my body doesn't make oxytosin (the hormone responsible for causing labor). She was never going to come the natural way and I will never have kids vaginally either.
I was induced on my due date due to calcification of the placenta. Everything went well, but they did use the vacuum for my final push because her shoulders were lodged underneath my pelvic bone.
She had a perfect apgar, literally no jaundice, and is 100% healthy.
