Hi, I had the works! 4 days after my due date they tried to give me a sweep but my cervis was too high (was uncomfortable but not painful) then at 9 days late they tried again but nothing so booked me in for an induction. The day of the induction I was in onset labour but they had no room for me so I had to wait for the next day. Labour did come naturally but was taking so long so they broke my waters (very strange feeling but no pain) They found out that my baby had done a poop so they rigged me up to the hormone drip wich dramatically increased the intensity of my contraction and sped everything up! Unfortuately my body wasn't playing. They decided I needed a c-section and it was the best decision ever! After being in labour for over 38hrs I was nackered and was so thankful to the surgeon who said the words 'Zoe we will need to get you into theatre now'
What to expect....... truthfully I hated the drip. It made my contraction fast and hard but thinking about it this is what labour is! The only advice I can give you is to try and relax as much as possibly and keep an open mind to the other options to natural birth.
Hope everything goes well, Keep us posted! xx
