I was 36 wks when I started fenugreek.5 days later I took 4oz castor oil 3-11-12. Went to bed and woke up at 430 am 3-12-12 feeling strong contractions, within 30 min I was in lots of pain. I threw up and my water broke at the same time right before I got into the car.
At 6:30am I was at the hospital. 6-7cm dialated when I got there. I was Begging for the epidural cuz I was in the worst pain I have ever been in in my life. I was screaming in pain I think the whole hospital heard me. All of a sudden I feel the baby coming out, the doctor came quick and after a few extremly hard pushes he was out in less then 5 min at 715am. I was at the hospital for only 45min! Labor about 3hrs total. Doctor had to turn him cuz his shoulders were stuck and the baby came out with a bruise on his shoulder. Baby was not crying and blueish when he was handed to me. Do to my diabetes the baby had a low blood sugar of 9. He was in NICU for 2 days getting sugar from an IV.And he had Jaundice.
My due date was April 3. I had Max March 12. My whole pregnancy I was expecting him to come in the biggining of March. I was so happy he came early I dont think he would have made it a day later. He was born 1 day short of 37wks. My plan was to have him early so I tried natural inductions and Im glad I didnt listen to others discouraging me to have the baby early.
He was 10.14 lbs. At 36 wks my belly was measuring 43wks! I knew he was going to be big and I was very paranoid to go over 37 wks because thats when I lost my last baby.
I was so shocked how this labor happened so fast but the pain was horrific I would not reccomend having babies without the epidural. I did take the epidural with my 2 previous births but this time it happened too fast and I was so scared and terrified of the pain.
