Positive induction story
I feel it was positive, although I was in agony with the contractions the birth was very quick and perfect.
Came in at 3pm
Sweep and pessary inserted by 4pm
Light bleeding around 5pm on tissue, nothing else
Contractions start about 11pm and continue every hour, roughly 3 every half hour (paracetamol at 2am)
By 5am increased to 3/4 every 20 minutes
6am codeine given
7am lost mucus plug /bloody show
Pessary fell out, 3cm dilated and put back in
Contractions every 10 minutes, codeine wearing off at 8am
Paracetamol at 8.30am
Gone for a walk at 10am
Pessary out at 2 (fell out)
Consistent contractions all day, bloody show continues
Baby's heart rate raised at 3pm to 180s, on the monitor for 3 hours and Iv fluids put up.
15 minute nap at 7pm
Consistent contractions, waiting to go on labour ward at 22.20.
Did not go to labour ward as it had emergencies in.
Contractions every 4/5 minutes throughout the night, lasting 30/40 seconds.
Finally at 5am, was given pethidine which knocked me out until 7am.
Taken to labour ward at 9.30am
Waters broke at 10.30am.
Already 8cm dilated by 11am, no pain relief except gas and air.
