Pregnant after 35

Induction Cancelled

They cancelled my induction due to a shortage of beds, and I'm currently waiting to hear back from my OB on what she wants to do. Such a let down. Trying to stay optimistic. But, I'm not doing that great a job. 

Re: Induction Cancelled

  • That sucks! You're just going to have to go into labor yourself today...that'll show them! ;)

    On second thought, maybe wait until tomorrow. When my brother was born a long time ago, the hospital was all out of regular rooms and my mom got stuck in a procedure room (lots of supplies and no windows) for a day. That would be depressing.

  • Oh man, that stinks. Keep us posted. (you'd think they'd have kept something saved for you since you had "reservations")
  • They called at 10:30 and said it wasn't goin to happen. So, I'm scheduled for a medically necessary one at 5am Tuesday. I can't be bumped because I'm 35+ an that would be nearly 41w. My OB is less than happy, because she wanted him out TODAY, but women in labor take priority for some reason. I now have food in my tummy and I'm nice and relaxed. Going to enjoy memorial day weekend!

    Wasn't her fault at ALL. She really fought for it. She was so upset.  But, she couldn't justify squeezing me in when there were women in active labor who needed the beds more. I completely understood. I was disappointed, but what of it were me walking in with ruptured membranes or active labor, and they had given a bed to someone for low priority induction? Just bad timing. The L&D charge nurse couldn't believe how many women walked in today.  She said they were to the point of sending them to another hospital. Tuesday, it's different and both my OB and the charge nurse have said he HAS to come out at that point. 

  • GL on Tuesday!
