DD1: Went into labor on my own, delivered vaginally
DD2: Induced, delivered vaginally
DD1- labor on my own, delivered vaginally
DS- labor on my own, delivered vaginally
DD2- induced, delivered vaginally
I picked induced, delivered vaginally for both but I'm kind of a special snowflake. I had preeclampsia for both kids but was pretty much in labor already when it happened.
With O I was 4 centimeters when I walked into the hospital and had progressed to 5 - 6 centimeters before they even started pitocin.
With C I had high blood pressure at my 40 week appointment and was still not going to be induced until they determined that I was already 5 cm dilated. I was sent directly to the hospital for what they termed labor augmentation, as it's no longer considered an induction when you're that far along.
Had it not been for high blood pressure I think I would have delivered both on my bathroom floor as I had no pain or symptoms of labor.
I voted: went into labor on my own and delivered vaginally, but I'm sort of a SS.
With DD my water broke at 37 weeks on it's own, but I did not go into labor on my own afterwards. When I still was not having contractions 5 hours after my water had broken they started pitocin, so it was sort of induced too.
With DS I was induced at 39 weeks 3 days and delivered vaginally.
#1 my water broke and I went into labor and delivered vaginally. (this is how I voted)
#2 I was induced due to a hurricane and delivered vaginally.
#3 I went into labor on my own and had an emergency c-section due to several complications. Baby's position and fetal distress.
Charlotte, have I missed your birth story post?
I have never seen the term "vaginally" used with such frequency on one webpage, lol!
DS1: Planned c-section after month in and out of hospital; planned; in our case, planned is also medically necessary
DS2: Tried for VBAC; ended up with planned c-section
I've never been in labor, but I was term both times.
#1: Was 10 days late, went in to labor, labored for 18 hours, delivered via sorta emergency c-section
#2: was 10 days early, went in to labor, was trying for a VBAC but labor was just too similar to #1 and rather than waiting opted for the c-sec after 4 hours of labor
DD 1: went into labor on my own, delivered vaginally
DD 2: planned c-section due to breech positioning
Hope to have vbac this time.
DD: went into labor on my own; delivered vaginally
DS: was induced with Cervidil only; delivered vaginally
Sam was a planned c-section because of previous uterine surgery.
I've given birth to two kids and still don't know what labor feels like! (And yes, part of me feels gypped.)
