as title says ds was 15days late was induced on day 14 but he still didnt want to budge till second day when he turned up 90mins after waters being broken and being put on drip. At the time this was great as short labour and I knew when it was happening etc. However no.2 is due week before xmas and ds will be just 2 so will understand xmas more. I really dont want to go over this time or at least not as far over as I did first time so how likely is it that this baby will be late aswell??????????????
Well my dd was due on 14 November, I was induced on 26 Nov but nothing worked, until second day, like you. She arrived after a 2 hour labour.
I didn't want to go 2 weeks over with ds, and my consultant agreed to start induction after a week, but thankfully he came on his own after a 5 hour labour on the day I was due to be induced, I was so scared of being induced again, I think I frightened him out.
ooo golds thats what im hoping for to will this baby to come early..or at least only couple of days late..lol
Do u think if i talk to consultant at my appointment they may let me be induced after a week too...at least then i wont be fretting all over xmas
I think it depends on whether the baby was actually late when he was born, or just right but wrong dates.
I had the first two 14 and 16 days over, no 1 was not considered more than a few days late but no 2 was considered to be drawing her pension and no 3 came one day overdue date. I don't think they did inductions for late babies in the olden days.
well my consultant was great, ds was due on 15 April, my SIL was getting married on 15 April, on the 12th he offered to do a sweep to get me going, I refused as wanted to go to wedding, can you believe I drove 5 hours to her wedding on my due day, mad or what, I just knew though he would be late, because of my anxiety of being induced he agreed he would get it over with rather than let me stew. I would ask, at least you will then know and can relax a little.
I was worried when I thought I was having No.3, that due date was 12 Dec, so I know how you are feeling.
DS1 was induced at 10 days over, DS2 arrived naturally at 7 days over, DS3 arrived naturally at 13 days over ---- if your trend is to be late you are more likely to be late again (apparently) But i am sure there are loads of people who could disprove this!!!
I dont mind being late as such i think its just the fact i will be on edge over xmas that worries me and also the when will they fit in my hospital appointments around it if you know what i mean..i know baby will come when ready and ds didnt budge even with all the curries, drives, sex, walks etc so doubt this one would..lol
DD1 was 15 days late... currently four days over and counting for dd2? or ds1? My impatience is due to the fact that I'm hoping ideally for a home birth and have a lovely and very expensive birthing pool all set up ready...but I know they come when they are ready and there's not much I can do about it - having a sweep tomorrow tho. If babe has to be born in hosp then that will be as it was meant to be (I'm rubbish at waiting tho) good luck with yours x
lol rachey maybe im just being too hopeful at this baby coming on time..lol Oh well i dont mind when it arrives as long as its safe, although if i go into labour on xmas day then its legs crossed till at boxing day..lol
Hi just had my 3rd baby 6 days ago All 3 were totally different experiences. First was 8 days late and spontaneous, 2nd was 15 days late like you and induced and 3rd came one day EARLY so don't expect to go late again necessarily. Good luck
