I'm absolutely bricking it. I'm being induced Monday due to reduced fetal movement I'll be 38 plus 4.
I was due to have a c section on Tuesday as she was breech but She
Turned Thursday night.
This is my 3rd baby and 3rd induction of labour. Issue is she is not even engaged and I know it hurts like hell but my main issue other than the pain is piles as I'm already in agony and I just know how I'm going to cope confused

Would you have an epidural? Did you have one with your previous babies?

jcsc Sat 30-Jul-16 17:25:58

I had 2 with both of them and they didn't work. I do plan on trying that again though x

emsyj Sat 30-Jul-16 17:34:58

Sorry I don't have any wise words for you. Will it be quick for you at least??

I've just had on Thursday DC#3 and it was my third induction too. I also have trouble with epidurals working completely. With my first two I had a complete block on one side only. But this time it worked so much better.

With my first two, I used gas and air alongside the epidural. I found it helped loads to cope with the pain.

Good luck for tomorrow

Ems - how would she know if it's going to be quick or not ?

Hi jcsc

I am in a very similar situation - being induced on Monday at 38 weeks (due to clotting issues and maternal age hmm )

Up until last week I was looking forward to it but I have developed thrombosed piles this week and am in agony and starting to panic slightly

"Ems - how would she know if it's going to be quick or not ?"

If she has had 2 inductions before and they were both quick, I would make an assumption (based on nothing at all other than past experience) that it would likely be quick this time. That's all. Could be a totally incorrect assumption, I don't know. I've had 2 quick labours so am expecting my third to be reasonably quick too, but maybe it's different with induction (perhaps it depends how close you were to spontaneous labour?) No idea.

One labour was horrendous at over 24 hrs and one was 6 hours.
I've been to boots today to try and get some suppositories for piles but they didn't have any in stock. sad
I'm hoping she flies out and my induction works. Good luck x

And to top it off I've got major diareah blushblush tomorrow is going to be awful x

Hopefully thats the start of labour and you wont need to be induced.

Good luck.

jcsc how did everything go? My DS was born Monday night grin

Congratulations smile I had my little girl yesterday morning. Never again though lol xx

Ps I am currently waiting to see if I need surgery on my
Thrombosed piles they want to see if they go down by themselves end of the week. Absolutely horrific confusedconfused how are yours ? X

YoureMyWifeNowDave Thu 04-Aug-16 12:14:07

Congratulations on your baby girl grin

Tbh the whole area is so swollen I can't tell what is piles and what isn't confused it's very sore but not quite as painful as I feared it would be although I'm having to walk like a baboon hmm

I've been told to give it a couple of weeks for the swelling to improve and then see if any treatment will be needed so I'm hoping it will get better on its own

jcsc Fri 05-Aug-16 23:27:32

Fingers crossed your swelling goes down, I've not been so lucky and am currently back in hospital waiting to have surgery on mine confused

Congrats on the baby and much sympathy on the thrombosed piles. I had the same after DC2. Ask for lots of pain relief for after the surgery, it does work but its pretty excruciating for a few hours afterwards. I'm also thinking I'll end up being induced with DC3 in a couple of weeks, I'm praying I can avoid the piles this time!!!!

jcsc Sat 06-Aug-16 05:46:26

What do they do during surgery they've not really explained. The only thing they've said is I'll be knocked out. I'm in agony at the moment and being given oramorph every. 2 hours.
I'm shocked at how bad these piles
Are I had the after my 1st and managed somehow to escape them with the 2nd and this time is something so horrendous i couldn't think possible.
Good luck with the birth. Maybe take some creams in with you just in case you need them
My only saving grace is looking at my beautiful little girl ad realising the pained everything was worth it xx
