We've been at the hospital all night. My ob sent me because we had a nonreactive NST earlier. When I got here they did an ultrasound and found my fluid was really low (1.6) so I was admitted. I've been on pitocin for about 5 and a half hours and nothing's happening. I'm getting super frustrated and I can't get comfortable at all in this bed! :( it doesn't help I'm starving either, ice chips just ain't cuttin it.
I hear u girl I got induced for low fluid on Friday soon that pitocin will kick in and you'll start to feel the change lol I was stuck at 1.5cm for 8 hours they then gave me a higher dose and bam I was 10cm by noon started pushing at 1pm and had my baby girl at 1:41 once it works it works just kno everything your going through will be worth it in the end
I hope everything gets better for you hun and that your little one comes quickly!! I'm being induced Thursday and my doc didn't tell me anything about eating or not. It's at 6am should I eat before I go to the hospital or eat the night before? What about drinking water?
Caiden James was born Oct 2nd at 3:59pm :) 9 lbs 10 ounces and 23 inches long! It only took an hour of pushing and for whatever reason, no cone head. My nurses keep thinking he was born c section ;o
Melissa - I definitely suggest eating before. We had gone to Olive Garden beforehand (never ending pasta bowl :9) and I was still starving. Try eating protein, something that'll stick with you for a while.Once they start the induction you don't get to eat or drink. I had a cool nurse that snuck me apple juice and an otterpop though. I have never loved flavored ice so much.
