Failed induction anyone?

(17 Posts)

I'm currently in hospital, got in yesterday for induction, got the pessary about 11am and so far absolutely nothing.
Feeling really down and disheartened. There were 10 of us brought in yesterday and I'm apparently the only one who doesn't have a baby/ in labour yet.
Wondering if anyone else is in the same boat?
I just want to have this baby so I can get out of here and go home!
Totally pissed off and feeling very sorry for myself.

Oh you poor thing . It's not fair is it. Happened to me too with my first. Only advice I can give is rest whilst you can . It will happen might just need a bit more extra help.

Yes, I've been there.

It took 3 days of pessaries before they broke my waters and hooked up the drip for me with dc1. I remember seeing all the other parents coming and going.... so frustrating!

Hope it all happens for you soon flowers

Yup happened to me with dc2. Pessary , nothing, broke waters, nothing. I ended up on the drip and then it all happened very quickly!

Yea this is DC2.
Think it's just not helping that I've never been away from DC1 for this long before and I just want to go home to see her!
They say they'll break my waters later if they can but no beds in delivery at the moment so it won't be for a while. Sleep deprivation and hormones definitely not helping!

Oh I remember it clearly and it's not nice sad

Get as much rest as you can and make a clear plan with your consultant about when they'll draw the line and go to a CS. Mine took 5 days and I really wish I'd stood up for myself much sooner.

Good luck flowers

Yes completely failed induction here. Nothing moved or happened at all.

Had a calm and non-emergency c-section and have a wonderful DS.

Eyes on the prize and don't fret about what you can't control. All the best.

I had a failed induction, second one worked eventually but my God it was so boring and frustrating waiting until they could do administer the drugs again! Even after that one it was really slow going but you get there in the end! Hang on in there!

I was in for an entire week! Three attempts and eventually an emcs so you're really not alone. There's lots they can try before a cs though so don't be disheartened.

The only thing that got me through was thinking about holding my baby (and sleeping whenever I could)

Good luck!

MrsNuckyThompson Sat 25-Feb-17 17:58:38

And I'll say it once again. A c section is NOT the end of the world. I truly wish we could get away from that perception!!

Exactly what Mrs says.

I'm sorry you are struggling. I hope it happens soon for you. Might you be able to go home and try again another time?

Thanks everyone. They broke my waters in the end and put up the drip. Nearly exactly 4 hours later DS was here. So much better than last time. Couldn't be happier. 😊
