Is it bad if a baby passes meconium while he's still in your belly? Does it mean he's in distress or that he needs to come out right away? (I know you obviously wouldnt even know until he already is out)
I was induced at 41 weeks with my first. Part of me feels like... 41 weeks is still early and so we should have been more patient. The other part of me worries that because he had already passed meconium that he really needed to come out when he did. (the meconium came out when they broke my water, which is the first thing they did after i was at the hospital, so it wasn't caused by a stressful labor or later interventions or anything)
I know dr is going to want to induce me between 41 and 42 weeks if baby doesnt come out on his own by then and I'm not sure how I feel about it. On one hand, I am so patient and fine with waiting til he's ready. But the fact that my first had already passed meconium worries me.
