Lol no I'm not 37 weeks, I'm 32w1d.
I don't want to hurt feelings, that is never my intentions.
So I'm going tell you about my first pregnancy in 2008. I was raped at 16 and I didn't tell no one that I was because I was scared. I didn't know for sure that I was pregnant until my baby kicked me for the first time at my belly button, my mom and I were on vacation over on the Oregon coast towards Tillamook. I vomited off and on but she thought it was from climate change. But any ways I didn't tell no one I was pregnant until 26-27 weeks pregnant, I didn't take no vitamins of any kind or even seen a doctor and I didn't even know about wic. How I told my mom, she was taking a nap and I had a fake baby doll (lol yes I use to play with it at 16 and dressed it up in girl and boy clothes and I had tons of baby clothes for it lol) but I found a box, I put small baby was in it with a baby bottle, boy n girl clothing and a baby rattle too. I wrapped it up when I was doI did stop son I started crying againeard my son thee. I sat down in a pink rocking chair just across from her 10 minutes went byand she woke up. She's like oh how long were you there I said not long. She said what is that by you? I said mom its for you holding back tears. She opened it and she's like aww that's cut, its for your baby doll right? I said No mom, she said what do you mean Lisa. I said to her I think I might be pregnant. She starts saying, ok I'm getting 2 pregnancy tests, making a doctor appointment to see if you are then if you are then an obgyn dr appointment. Lol I'm like you have to see a doctor for pregnancy. She said yes.
So we get the test lol I pee in a cup my mom dips the first test not even 2 seconds later she said omg no this can't be then just right after she does it again. Shes crying a lot :'( and now I am. Shes like no maybe your not and I'm telling her mom I feel some movements in my stomach but I wasn't sure. So we go to my ped. Dr and she comes back in pulling her glasses down to nose and looks at me first and says I got some bad news, she's pregnant mom. So I seen the obgyn just days after and he did an ultrasound everything looked great. My mom was sad for about a week but when she got her income taxes she bought my son everything! I was and still am to have an fortunate mother, she went to every dr appointment with me:).
I was having contractions a lot in my last weeks, I was hurting in pain and could not barley walk. At my exactly 37 week appointment I asked my dr if inducing was an option, he was kinda iffy about it so I was walking out crying, my mom got to the stop sign and could not see me in any more pain so she turned around and we went back inside and we talked to the nurse and she talked to my dr he agreed to the induction so the next day I was induced exactly 37 weeks. I told my mom, I want to avoid a csection as much as possible, she said everything will be okay :) I'm here. It made me felt better. Well 12hrs after inducing my sons hb went down to 19bpm and my bp raised dramatically! I could have lost my life or my sons life or the both of us. I was crying so much when dr came in and said I needed an emergency csection. The first thing that I remember is one of the male drs said to me is, its okay baby, everything will be fine. Lol I could not stop crying then when i heard my son until I was in the recovery room then I stopped.
Here's my vent kinda
Now I look back at my story being a little upset with myself because I could have prevented my csection and almost losing my son or I. I understand that the csection could still be a chance but it would been a little lower.
I don't think any women should have their baby at 37 weeks unless your having health issues or baby is not doing fine.
When I see women wanting to induce at 37 weeks it kinda upsets me :/ there's just too many women even trying to induce around 35-36 weeks. I understand the pain but I wished I knew now back in 2008. I don't know why it upsets me that mothers want their babys out that early, maybe after what Iv went through I don't know :/. But Iv learned that your baby will come when she/he wants to not when you want to. I was going into labor with my second at 37w2d so I had to have another csection, but I did want to try for a vbac but the first thing that came out of the dr mouth was your baby could die so it was a csection. I had my son November 15,2008 1.5 months after my 17 bday then I had my daughter August 29,2010 just before my 19 bday both csections were hard but I was sad that I didn't have a natural birth. Then August 9th,2012 I had another daughter right before my 20th bday. I think most of my depression came from not having a natural birth like I wanted. But when Roberta was 11 months old, that is when I conceived. We weren't really trying to get pregnant so quick but we weren't preventing it either. We thought it would take like 3-4 months because that was how long it took last time but my depression is gone, for now. But now trying for a vba3c changed how I look at inducing early like 35-37 weeks.
For me, I rather have pain then losing my child! Why won't those ladies stop trying to induce because obviously their doctors isn't doing it for a reason! I'm in pain and every lady I know is pregnant is in pain too but I'm sure you all are not trying to induce labor. I don't even like commenting on posts like that, how do I induce labor I'm 37 weeks :/. I find it terrible. I know everyone had different thoughts but I can't help it no more to vent about it any more.
I think inducing or csection at that early needs to be for a reason, not a choice!!
What are your thoughts about this ladies.? Lol do you think I'm over reacting about this??
