If you were...



Just seeing the medical reasons for being induced in case any problems come up for me.

Induction seemed status quo around here. They did bump it to 39 minimum instead of 38.
Diabeties is a big one.

I was 10 days past due. With my nearly 2 week old son, I would have been induced on my due date, because I started showing signs of preeclampsia and my blood platelet levels were always on the low side through out my pregnancy. My dr. just so happened to be on call that day (she rotates w/ 9 other doctors in her practice) She did a membrane sweep 2 days prior and I just so happened to start contracting at 5 am on my due date. I wasn't due at the hospital until about 10:30 that morning for some evaluation tests to see what our plan of action was. He was born at 12:10 pm

Because my waters broke and I was labouring on my own for too long so they induced me to help me along. Still didn't work, had to have a c-section. Lol.

This may sound dumb but can you develop it at any time in your pregnancy? I passed my glucose test when I had it. It had to be under 140 and mine was like.. 88. I don't think I have it but is it something to be worried about still?

Well I was supposed to be induced at 37 weeks due to liver issues. If I didn't have the liver issues, I would have been induced at 39 weeks due to diabetes. But my son came on his own at 36 weeks and 5 days.

My water broke and I just wasn't going into labor on my own. My midwife gave me 24 hours after my water broke to go into labor but it never happened. Actually, my contractions starting getting farther apart.
