  • Yup I was both times....
    #1 at 38 weeks due to pre-eclampcia and coli-stasis - my daughter was born healthy at 8 lbs 12 oz
    #2 at 39 weeks due to the fact that I was headed in the same direction so we decided to induce vs waiting until I was having the same issues, I also had gestational diabetes - my son was born at 9 lbs 8 ozs, healthy as can be ;o)

  • I was induced five days after my due date because of "decreased fetal activity." Gave birth to an 8lb 11oz baby girl twelve hours later :)

  • Yes. I was induced at 40wks and 1 day because I had severe preclampsia. They were gonna do it later that week..but right after my 40wk appointment they shipped me to Labor & Delivery and said I had to start right then and there. Boy, was I unprepared for that one!

  • In terms of what most people will probably consider induced, no I wasn't but I was given pitocin. I was 4 days shy of my due date when my water broke. I went to the hospital at 1 am and was fully effaced and dialated to almost 2. My contractions were 3 minutes apart although they were so weak I wasn't even feeling them. They told me it would be a while and advised me to get some sleep. At 8 am my contractions had slowed to 15 minutes apart (still not feeling them) so they introduced a very slow pitocin drip. At 9 am I felt the most painful intense contractions and was at 5cm. My DD was born at 2pm.

  • my last one was induced because I was 41 weeks and he was big...24 hours later and a c-section out came a 9 lb baby, with a 14 inch head and 14 inch chest...I'm so happy I didn't have to push him out

  • I had preeclampsia and in the middle of the night while on bed rest in the hospital my BP rose to 198/119. They say its a miracle I didnt have a stroke or seize. Anyways I was induced at 32 weeks by meds and by him breaking my water.
