Hiya everyone just wondering what other people's experiences have been. I was induced with my dd at 35 weeks due to pre-eclampsia. From them starting the syntocin drip to her being born it was 4 hours. Am hoping to have a natural labour this time and just wondering if it will follow the same pattern and be quick? Feel like i have no experience of a real labour!!! thanks
Also interested in this. Slightly different experience - I was induced at 20 weeks after DD died last year. They didn't need to get anywhere near me with a drip (that was the next plan if the pessaries didn't do the trick), just put the pessaries in, I was contracting within an hour, and 3 hours from the pessaries she was born.
I'm now 32 weeks with DD2, wondering what my body will do in a natural labour and hoping I might be a fairly speedy one!
Spilttheteaagain i'm so sorry to hear about your previous experience. Here's hoping you have a fast natural labour this time. Well we've had one speedy labour and one slow one. Could go either way then!!! Have to wait and see what happens i suppose....and here i was hoping for some ACTUAL proof that i am gonna have a quick labour again this time!!!
I was induced at 40+1 with DC1, pessary only and 3 hrs later I gave birth. Natural labour with DC2, 8 hrs of established labour ending in EMCS. Very different experience! Good luck, hope you get the birth you want
