Getting induced

My original EDD is January 13th, 2016, but I am getting induced December 17th.  Having a high risk pregnancy, and diagnosed with cholestasis of pregnancy, keeping the baby in longer may cause a stillborn. 

So, if you were induced, how was your experience?  I understand everyone is different, but just trying to get an idea of what to expect etc. 

Re: Getting induced

  • I don't have an experience to share but good luck! I'm sure it's nerve-wracking but you will meet your baby very soon!

  • First, good luck and I'm sure you can't wait to meet you LO.

    Second, I was induced at 41w. All in all it wasn't a terrible experience. I labored almost 24hrs, and made very little progress. He would not move down into position. Ultimately we had an emergency csection when I got a fever and his heart rate skyrocketed.

  • I was induced at 36+5 due to pre-e. It wasn't so bad. They started by admitting me at 4:00PM, inserting a foley bulb, and starting pitocin. They had me sleep with the foley bulb overnight, and the next morning, when they took it out, I was at 6cm. They broke my water at noon, and then my body kicked into real labor. I labored for several hours, pushed for two hours, and she was born at 7:04PM. Good luck!!

    ...hello out there!

  • I was induced at 37w4d. He was born four hours short of 38 weeks. I had a 55 hour labor and 5.5 hours of pushing. My body, and the baby, were not ready and he was sunny side up so it took forever. I was 30 minutes away from a c-section but we made it. :)

  • I was induced early both times. Both inductions started around noon. One was born at 11:30pm and the other at 7:30pm. Pitocin, epi, broken water, pushed, delivered. Fairly simple for me.
