I was induced at 39 weeks on 3 Oct. It took forever for them to decide what to do as I had been at 1cm for weeks so not dilated enough for them to burst waters but was having regular 'tightenings' so they didn't want to give me the pessary in case it over stimulated cervix. Luckily with the vaginal examination they gave me I ended up being 2-3cm and was sent down to have waters broken around 8pm and baby arrived half midnight on 4 Oct with only 7 mins pushing!
My first, Evangeline, was 8lb 1oz and this one, Alexandria, was 7lb 9oz. So glad she was a smaller baby, not nearly as traumatic as my first labour!
Good luck to all those still waiting! And to all those with their new bundles!
I was due Oct 3, but my little man came 9/25 after 24 hrs of labor. My pre-eclampsia made my water break, so I had to have him early. 7 lbs 11.2 oz & 18 inches long. He's absolutely perfect & already weighs 8lbs 5oz and is breastfed.. :)
