Its been dipping. Its been 108 a few times at appts and they have to get him going to get a rise. So they sent me for NST and he set the machine off 3 times. But it went back up the last 2 appts so I am not going to work about it. I think he is a major snoozer and is preparing for the mass chaos he is about to be born into.

This is a very upsetting subject to me. I was induced at 39 weeks, for NO medical reason. When I voiced my concerns about being induced, my doc threw out words like 'stillborn', 'cord prolapse', etc. I had 4 miscarriages before that & spent my whole pregnancy worrying about losing the baby & feeling like shecwas not safe inside my body. So, his scare tactics worked & I agreed to the induction. I wish I had been a better consumer and researched the product (doctor) I was buying into. Thankfully, I have a beautiful & healthy baby girl despite the doctor pushing induction. in the future, I will be better informed :)

So happy your baby was born with no complications!! Was she born by chance near a holiday? Just curious because my son was due on Thanksgiving and I'm convinced that's why she kept pressuring me into an induction...my fianc

I had an induction with my last due to PIH. I cant complain because it was really an easy process I was 39 5 and already 2cms and having contractions when I went in. But the thing is when I was filling out my disability papers, and had the OBs office fill them out, the nurse said there was NO WHERE on my chart that said I had Hypertension or blood pressure problems. I think my DR led me to believe that it was worst than what it really was so she could convince me into an induction. She had asked me numerous times before, all for conveniance purposes and I constantly turned her down. Ahhh it makes me angry!

I had to be induced as well and hated it! Mine was for high blood pressure - it was 150/96 at my 39 week appointment, they monitored me all day but my labs came back normal so he sent me home but said I "wasn't allowed" to go past my due date. At my 40 week appt they monitored me - didn't even tell me what my blood pressure was, just said they'd see me thursday for induction. I was scared and nervous from them saying me and the baby were in danger with my blood pressure.



My induction went well but sucked for me. They used cytotec,even though I told them I wanted cervadil after hearing cytotec is dangerous. Then they broke my water 6 hours later and started pitocin - upping it three times in an hour. And the nurses kept lying to me - i wanted to go natural and avoid an epidural. Well with the cytotec they wouldn't allow me out of bed except to use the restroom and kept saying that I could walk and use my birthing ball after the dr came (6 hours after inserting the cytotec). Then after he broke my water they said I had to wait to get out of bed until after they started pitocin, then once they started pitocin I was told that I couldn't leave the bed because I was on pitocin. And of course then her heart rate would drop occasionally if I didn't lay in one certain position, and the pain was just awful being forced to lay on my back so I caved for the epidural. I was so disappointed. But at least dd got here perfectly healthy.

I had the same issue.... I 'had to' be monitored because of the pitocin, & every time I tried to get up & move around, they came in & made me lay back down. The doctor came in & broke my water & ordered an epidural without asking me, because it would 'speed up my progession because I was too tense'... My contractions got HORRIBLE after the epi, I started vommiting & it was one after another after another SO quick! I was begging for the epi by the time the guy got there to give it to me...



next time, I HOPE to have a homebirth, but for SURE want a doula!!!

:(...I already told my family next time I'm either having an HBAC in water or a waterbirth at a birthing center....it will not be up for discussion. :D...I no longer trust hospital environment unless of course its needed :) the birth center I'm thinking of is minutes away from a hospital tho

SO thinks we should do a home birth. I like the thought of a birth center. Medical staff is there in case something goes wrong but its more relaxed than a hospital.

Hmmm... thank you for your opinion. I think it's really dangerous TO vaccinate my child.



I have 3 close friends with vaccine injured children. it is not just 'oh its a rare occurance', I know of people in my personal life who have children who will never be the same because of vaccines.

Its ideal to be in an environment you are completely comfortable with. Labor can be stalled or become much harder on mom if you are nervous/ not relaxed. Confidence is key so if you need that extra safety net to be confident take it! You will know when the time comes :). Ahhh I'm excited for a future water birth and I'm not even pregnant!
