mine was induced too i think.cos i did ask my gynae did not elaborate whether it is or not.
It happened 1 week before my EDD. I went for my routine check. Then my gynae says my yang shui is low baby wont be getting much nutrients from me and moreover i'm also on glucose slightly high side. So since already 39 weeks my gynae says can deliver anytime. What shocked me was i was dilated 3cm i dont feel a thing .
So i was admitted on that day itself, actually we r hoping that she can be out too, but its kind of unexpected.
After i was admitted at about 12 noon, my dear husband went home to get my baggage. The drip start at around that time. Had my epi 2hrs later, cos the nurse says i must at least have a little feel on the contraction.
The feeling was anxious.
Then about 6pm i was dilating at 5 cm, have n hr later 9 cm. very fast, my gynae came to the delivery suite and i was ready to labour. Seriously i dont painful at all, and 3 main push my dear daughter was out.approx few mins bah. I was so delighted and dont know what to say to her when they place her on my chest. I only say : hello.....
But after that was miserable... so my labour consider pleasant experience total about 7 hours in delivery suite.
wow thats a relief... hope mine will be as easy as urs.. 3 pushes sounds easy!
i didn't know how to push - worst thing was nurse shot me with epi x 2 so i really couldn't feel anything at all! i push & push doctor & nurses kept telling me i was doing it wrong. baby was stuck in birth canal for like 20 minutes. in the end the midwives had to push my belly from the top & gynae had to vacuum my boy.
i continue to worry if there will be longterm effects on his development =(
anybody faced the same problem??

oh yea yr ticker shows 6m, but how come look like 1yr old????
cancanmum > my boy 6 months only. many of our friends n colls also find my boy looks like big boy, fr the pics. mayb it's his hair. hahaha...
how come nurse gave you double dosage? mayb my nurse lower the dosage 'cause i got tickling feeling. so i can still feel, just not painful only.
your nurses never ask your husband to help? when i practise push, nurses n husband say can c abit of my baby's head. was worried that my boy need to b vacuumed out also. but luckily ok.
i think wont have any long term effects on development .
the nurse came running in & announced "we have to start practising how to push now okay?? doctor coming in 5 minutes!"
my gynae arrived 2 minutes after that!!! how to practise?? i was quite annoyed.
my first dose of epi was 9mg - half dose only, then i itchy mouth told them it still hurt. i regret this becos nurse upped the dosage exactly by twice so altogether i was given 18mg. i think the standard dose is 16mg maybe less?
becos of this, i couldn't really feel the baby properly - i could feel the pressure on my cervix but it was really numb. i think if they left me alone i could have just laid there & continue watching tv!!!
post-birth experience my left knee was completely numb for 3 - 4 days. i was hobbling around. not good for recovery esp for my stitches (had minor episiotomy).
i'm very paranoid about the long-term effects because baby in birth canal too long is not good - oxygen deprivation. i really, really pray he'll be okay. so far he's on track with his developments - learning how to roll over now!!
I was induced too. Due to my high blood pressure, my gynae suggest i shld give birth earlier no more waiting @ 36weeks+.
admit 8am. 10am++ on labour ward bed. 11am start to have pain. 1300hrs baby born.
I was force to hospitalize on my birthday as i gt headache...haha! Bt no labour, gynae give me pills to lower the pressure & contraction and gave me 2 injection each 12hrs apart, said to protect baby's lung & to make her lung stronger. Then finally go home after 3days stay
A week later go back for weekly check, she say bo bian, your pressure still high and your baby seems strong enuff to be born so she set a day for me to go for labour.
Admitted @ 8am...then labour ward no bed...then go to normal ward to wait then gynae came in and check...oh you are 5cm dilated...good....shld be a fast 1...ok wait for bed & we will induced...wow! both hub & I see,seem veri surprised to see gynae reaction...she always look very confident...
then at 10am+++, both hub & I in the labour ward still joking around about what will happen later & so surprise to see the labour ward nurse, she is the same nurse as my previous admission...we chatted a while then many nurse came in started to poked in needle & drip(for induce) then about 30-45mins later pain gradually started...then the nurse check ok...8cm ok you can push
After awhile gynae came & ask hw many CM? then ask me to be in position and push... ...after ....i dont know hw long....gynae say see baby head rite...good...good....push 1 or 2 time...can ...then finally 1300hrs baby is OUT...PHEW....i make it without epi.
Bt i scratch my thign till bleed...& gynae ask hub to give me breathe in the gas beside my bed as i was super sensitive to what she is doing...haha!
I guess the injection i had a week before the labour really effective as i heard my baby cry...very loud & clear...haha!
wow, thxs for sharing your experience...i also had high bp in my 36 wks of pregnancy..was hospitalized but after resting on the bed for like 1-2 hours bp drop to normal so was not given medicine and drip...then at week 37 wk bp high again **sianz***...my gynae kind of pissed of..cos probably im too excited and probably a rest on bed will be alright...so i did the same thingy and it drop a bit...gynae was kind of worried cos still on the high side then she check my cerix but is was not softened and the baby head was not engaged..this time only medicine was given to control the bp, so this week which is week 38...gg to see her again..and if high again will get induce...i prefer to induce for my case otherwise baby not gaining much wt and nutrients from me due to my slightly borderline high bp..kind of prepared for it, and my husband says my gynae is like so confident that baby will be out this week!!! excited sia....dont know how it will goes...lol
so why do we pregnant women get high bp? is it cos of what we eat or?
think mayb the dosage for your epi too high already . i think normal is 16mg. mayb the nurse inexperienced. feel numb for so many days, very uncomfy .
oh... i think shld b ok . now 3+months already, learning how to turn over, on track.
ya... hahaha... resembles daddy's hair.
but since i've never been induced before, a little worried if the pain'll be more intensive n if the labour wld last longer than if i had a normal delivery (w/o induce)... worried about all these cos i'm still thinking whether to have epidural or not...
For my 1st, waterbag burst for 1 day, then I realised its waterbag burst.. Went hospital to check, confirm burst but no contractions nor cervix dilated 1cm nia. Doc induced, also no use. But I dont feel any pain after induced. From 12am waited until next morn, still nothing. So emergency C-sect.
For my 2nd, waterbag burst while ZzZ, confirmed waterbag burst, slowly shower, send my gal to nanny house, then go hospital. Kanna scolded coz that day OT fully booked, left 1 slot nia. Haha. Also C-sect.
wah, 2 times c-sect!! did you take the whole body anesthesia or epidural? Conscious or Zzzzzz kind?
workingmummysg, did your little one had any issue being born at 36 weeks? I heard some babies born before 40 weeks tend ot have lungs problems n need to be place in incubators...
Bt she was hospitalized a weeks later for 3-4days bah...due to high jaudices level. . I cry everyday yet dont dare to go hospital to visit her...haha! me silly mumy.
I was luckily, my baby lung is ok...you know she was crying so loud when she was born. I buay tahan also...bt gynae say is a good sign to hear her cry so loub... I gues must thank to gynae, a week before i was due for labour, gynae want me to stay in hosiptal & order nurse to give 2 shots of medication(say to baby lung develop stronger/faster(not sure whether is stronger or faster bt is good for baby develop before born at 36weeks +++).
anyone had their newborns in incubators? any idea how much it cost? I heard its 1k per day!!! *gulp*
My dear daughter was 2.2kg @ 36wks, dont need incubator. My dear son was 3kg @ 37wks.. also dont need incubator.
Usually incubator for really early premies.. Like 28-31weeks. Shld be safe around 35-36weeks.. dont need incubators..
