I am pretty sure I will be having one Thursday morning at 41 weeks for gestational hypertension and lack of pelvic engagment by babygirl...
I have tried all the home induction things I can...acupuncture, acupressure, borage oil, nipple stimulation/breast pump, natural protagladin application , 2 different rounds of castor oil, cohosh tinctures, and homeopathics. The best result is from acupuncture and as soon as the needles are out any sensation stops. I do have some bh but less than one or two an hour.
At the hospital last night I was on pit at 2 for 5 hours or so and didn't dilate and she didn't engage more. So the OB doesn't think an induction will work.
So, all that to say, I'm not feeling like I have reasonable options at this point other than c-section so no bashing. This is so far from what I wanted and where I hoped to wind up...
Please tell me about your planned primary c-section...anything you wish you had known going in that you'd like to share now? what can I expect? did you regret not being induced? advice? do I need more postpartum help than what DH can provide (ie he can cook and clean is that enough?) now that I'm probably having surgery?
Thanks for your experiences and insight!
