hi. i am 39 weeks pregnant and feeling very sick. for the past week i've been having lots of contractions,some of them were really bad,some of them mild,but it's ok,they got stronger but not closer to each other. The problem is that i've been 2 cm and 50% effaced for 5 weeks now and i am not really progressing. The babie's head is very low,which is very good,but she is pressing on my nerve on my left side and the pain is just awful,nothing comparible to contractions. Whatever i do,does not help the pain to go away.I've been very noaseated too and started throwing up again and feeling sick,pooping a lot,everything is pointing that the labour is coming very soon,but nothing is happenning.
My question is about induction. I had to be induced the first time,only because i had high blood pressure in the end of my pregnancy.
Because she is pooshing on my nerve and i can't carry her anymore and she is actually already 8.5 pounds, i was thinking about induction.
With my first one,everything went very well,but after i had her,she had fluid in her lungs and had to stay in the NICU. I am wondering if induction did that,or it just happened.
I do not want to be induced this time,but i am thinking if i am not dilating more and not progressing,i will probably be carrying her 41 or 42 weeks and later on,will have to be induced anyway.
How safe is it?Have you had any problems with your baby if you had to be induced? I am scared,i don't want her to end up in the NICU as well. What should i do? i really need your help. My next app is in two days and my doc keeps asking me about inducing me.
