were you supposed to be induced or did your baby have other ideas? Lock Rss


just wondering if anyone went over and were to get induced and the baby had other ideas.

my son did - was supposed to be induced on 3rd feb 06 - went into hospital and my waters broke in the waiting room.

anyone else? would love to hear

i was called ballo!

hi leesa,
Yep, I had the same thing happen. I was supposed to be induced on xmas eve and my waters broke in the carpark. Problem was that she was really wedged down there so the water was just trickling out and the midwife sent me home believing they hadnt broken, needless to say I was pretty angry and was back at the hospital 3 hours later with heavy contractions. Remidee was born at 4am on xmas day.

Hi girls,

Ava was due on January 31. I went into hospital midnight on the 7th Feb be to induced. Hubby and I hung around under observation for 12 hours with nothing happening before doctors decided they should do a caesar (therefore 'non-elective').

Had had no contractions but was having "tightenings" but couldn't feel them. We were scheduled to have c-section after the day's surgery ('non-emergency'). So hubby, mum and I sat around, walked around gardens etc waiting for 5pm Feb 8 to arrive.

Went into surgery with the feeling that bub hadn't even dropped but was over waiting and just wanted to meet our lazy little bundle.
If she hadn't been taken by force there's no telling how long Ava would have camped out in my belly just taking it easy!!

All in all wasn't as bad as I'd dreaded and baby Ava arrived safe and healthy.
