If your child is playing around another who has been sexually abused, would you see a need to worry about that child doing anything to your own? Obviously not on purpose or anything, but I'm slightly paranoid about the unknowns here... I've heard of sexually abused children acting things out around other kids and it's a really big fear of mine right now. Cuz, you know, I need one more thing on my plate to worry about. Btw, the age we're talking about is toddler/3-year-old.post #1964 of 33849/16/13 at 2:03pmIs your cervix typically higher when you're pregnant vs. not pregnant? Yes, I am 27 and need an anatomy lesson. I never could reach my cervix while pregnant but can reach it easily now. Actually, when I was TTC #2 I never could reach it either. Maybe it just sits lower now after 2 births? Is that normal? My sister's lady parts started to fall a couple years back, so I'm paranoid about such things.post #1965 of 33849/16/13 at 2:07pmHe wants to deliver tomorrow. He agreed to let me try it on my own first before doing a csec but he won't give me ripening agents on top of Pitocin because of the risk of rupture with the two combined. I have to be here at 530am.
I'm still 1cm and 50%. I told him I was going to go into labor tonight. He said, "PLEASE DO!"
I'm freaking the fuck out.post #1966 of 33849/16/13 at 2:10pmQuote:Originally Posted by birdhappy85

From experience, having dealt with a lot of sexually abused children in the foster system, I would say a toddler doesn't usually act out towards other kids sexually from sexual abuse. They act out in different ways, more emotional or developmental ways. Kids who are being actively sexually abused around 4-6 will usually act out non-aggressively towards other kids because of boundary issues, but that is even rare. When you get to the adolescence stage that's when you typically start to worry about aggressive sexual behavior.
Also to add, most kids don't act out at all sexually, ever, and that is why sexual abuse goes on for decades and is unreported. Unless a kid had displayed sexual aggression or was much older, I would not label them or fear my child being around them.post #1967 of 33849/16/13 at 2:10pmpost #1968 of 33849/16/13 at 2:10pmpost #1969 of 33849/16/13 at 2:11pmpost #1970 of 33849/16/13 at 2:12pmpost #1971 of 33849/16/13 at 2:17pmIt was the low fluid. He basically said he's covering his own ass because if he waits and there's a problem, they'll see the fluid was low and will harp him about why he waited.
I'm glad he's willing to let me try on my own. That was an argument in itself.
Stopping to get Castor Oil now.post #1972 of 33849/16/13 at 2:17pmSee, he does not sound like a VBAC supportive Ob to me. He should give you at least til the end of this week if not til 42 weeks unless there is a medical reason I'm not reading here in your posts. I would not try castor oil. I would just not show ip for the induction. Cervadil (not cytotec) could be used as a softener, but he was likely taking about cytotec which cannot be used with pitocin especially in a vbac situation.post #1973 of 33849/16/13 at 2:21pmYou can sign an statement saying you went Against medical advice by not showing up for the induction. But at 1cm 50% your bishops score is not great, especially as a vbac I'm sorry to say. If you do the castor oil, do this (reccomended by midwife)
This castor oil recipe is not unpleasant for the mom and leads to good results: Blend 4 ounces of oil with just enough citrus juice (cuts the oil) to make it liquid. Have another glass of fresh juice, as well as a wash cloth drenched with hot water, at hand. Ask the mom to drink the castor oil mixture as quickly as possible. Then tell her to wipe out her mouth with the cloth to remove the oily residue. Next, have her rinse out her mouth with the fresh juice and spit it out. Finally, suggest she sit down to finish the rest of the juice slowly. The castor oil has no taste, it just feels awful, so this method really helps make it more palatable. The castor oil usually causes the bowels to empty within three hours. (We offer the mom "baby wipes" instead of toilet paper to prevent soreness.) Next, suggest the mom get into a very warm bath, and pour water over her abdomen. If a Jacuzzi is available, all the better! Contractions will usually begin while the mom is enjoying her bath.post #1974 of 33849/16/13 at 2:25pmAlso, be sure a d stay extremely hydrated, like more water than you think you an hand,e. with lower fluid levels on top of castor oil, you need to be sure you're getting fluids. I would NOT recommend you telling your doctor you are taking castor oil, it might lead to a straight csection based on fear.post #1975 of 33849/16/13 at 2:29pmpost #1976 of 33849/16/13 at 2:38pmThread Starter
Yes, fluids, fluids, fluids. Like down crazy amounts. Would you say you get a gallon in a day? Aim for that at least.
Kali, what a rebel! I like your style. Nicole, how do you feel about your situation? Are you worried? Or does your gut say things are fine? What if you ask to have your fluid level checked again in say, two days after drinking tons of water? What were the results of the NST? Is she in distress at all?
Cryotec is the horrible, scary drug that has killed women. Cervidil is different. Why wouldn't he try that and rupturing your membranes maybe before going straight to a section?
The problem here is that you don't know how long you cook babies. Because you were induced and had a section last time you didn't get the chance to see when you would have naturally gone into labor. Some people cook their babies for 42 weeks and that's the way it is. You also don't know how much you tend to dilate and efface prior to labor. Some of us get crazy dilated for a week before hand (like me at 6cm for a week) or don't at all until labor starts (like Abra). So you have no precedent to go off of to say, I know I go late, or I know I don't dilate until labor starts. You know? This could all be completely normal for you and labor could be a day or two away still.
As long as there are no worrisome issues, I say stand up and fight for your right to labor.post #1977 of 33849/16/13 at 2:44pmpost #1978 of 33849/16/13 at 2:45pmHe's letting me labor. That's why I have to be there at 530am... To get the show on the road.
I'm just nervous because of my last birth. I feel like this really would happen on it's own in the next few days. I'm nervous with how unfavorable my cervix is, just like last time.
I do trust, like, and respect my doctor though.
I'm in a huge mind fuck right now. I need to process what just happened.post #1979 of 33849/16/13 at 2:51pm
I was induced with B because of BP issues and my cervix was VERY unfavorable even though it was my 3rd birth. It was a long exhausting labor hooked up to pitocin, and I got the epidural even though I didn't want to because I was exhausted and they were saying they wanted me to have a Csection. But I did it. And you can too.post #1980 of 33849/16/13 at 2:55pmThread StarterQuote:
But that's not exactly what we are meaning by "let you labor." There should be no "let" in birth. He's telling you that you will be induced and that you will deliver your baby tomorrow one way or another. If you decide to go that route then we will cheer for you 110% that you can get your VBAC. But he's really stacking the odds against your body by telling you that it must happen tomorrow.
What we mean by laboring is going into labor when your body is ready and therefore giving yourself the best chance at a VBAC. Again, what if you ask for another fluid check tomorrow or the next day?
In the end, follow your gut, though. Maybe take some time away from the computer to let things settle in your head and heart and feel what the right choice is?
