  • I was only 36 weeks :( when they had to induce to due to high blood pressure...dangerously high blood pressure!! My daughter was born, not breathing, because the cord was wrapped around her neck and she came out face up! After 4 minutes of CPR she finally took her first breath, It was a miracle. But needless to say she spent the first month in NICU! But now she is a totally healthy 3 y/o so all is well. :)

  • I never did :( I had no oxytocin in my body at all.

    They induced me one day before 41 weeks. I delivered the day after Christmas blehhhh.

  • With my first child I was 39 or 40 weeks and I could not wait to have the baby already! But I was really scared though.

  • I was 38 weeks and a couple of days. I went into labor completely naturally. My water broke on it's own and contractions started at six minutes apart. I was pretty active during my pregnancy. Guess my little guy was just ready to come out! Lol. My labor was quick and short. 4 hours, 6 minutes of pushing, 9 pushes!
