Ok so im 36 weeks and 3 days, on Friday I was sure my waters were leaking and went to the hospital to get an internal done to check, the midwife said I was fine and they weren't leaking. Well today I have just had a routine scan (high risk) and been told they are unducing me tonight at 9:30 as I have no waters left... im so shocked its hit me like a punch in the face, I lost my first baby full term through labour and quite frankly im pooing myself sad

Hi Kay - another one holding your hand..

My DD was delivered at 35+6 in April due to low liquor volume (the technical term for it). I was also a high risk pregnancy due to previous severe early PE - both DS & I nearly died.

You have done so well to keep your baby safe to 36+ weeks, but now baby will be better out than in. You will get to meet your much-wanted baby soon...... Good luck x

SpottedDickandCustard Mon 09-Sep-13 22:02:41

Gosh, what a shock Kay, I bet you thought you had a while to go eh?!

I hope you are labouring away nicely and best wishes for a safe and speedy delivery. The Drs will be keeping an extra special eye on you I'm sure given your history and high risk-ness.

(PS I was high risk and induced with DS at 35 weeks. It was a shock cos I wasn't expecting it but he was an 8lb chubbler and none the worse for his early arrival).

BiscuitMillionaire Mon 09-Sep-13 22:08:42

Hi Kay, I had oligohydramnios with my first DS, they began to induce me then labour began, it ended in C section due to foetal distress, but when he was born he was absolutely fine, everything normal. Sending you good wishes for the best possible outcome for you and your LO.

RhondaJean Mon 09-Sep-13 22:09:47

Another hand for you here, and hoping all goes well and quickly.

My waters broke on a Thursday afternoon, I wasn't induced until the Sunday morning and DD was delivered by CS on the Monday morning.

She had to have IV antibiotics for 48 hours as a precaution but was otherwise fine.

HoobleDooble Mon 09-Sep-13 22:44:14

I went through the same thing with my DS, was fobbed off when I phoned the midwife. Finally had a can because of reduced movements and was kept in.

I did have to have an Emergency CS in the end, but everything was ok. In fact he started school today.

Can't wait for you to come back with lovely news!
