I've had a complicated pregnancy (anxiety, and anxiety related blood pressure isssues)

I'm currently 41 weeks and 4 days in the hospital for induction and nothing is working. Baby is super high (-3), I'm only 50% effaced and 2cm dilated.

We've done two rounds of cytotec to ripen cervix and it's done nothing. Im feeling discouraged and worrying this might end in a csection. I'm also concerned about a "bad labor" leading to more anxiety/postpartum issues.

Please pray for a health mom (mentally and physically) and healthy baby. And for baby to come sooner rather than later!

I'm so sorry. Praying for you and baby.
I had a traumatic birth with my first, but I had a c-section with my second, and it was wonderful. I know that's weird to say, but after my experience with my 1st, the c-section went so smoothly for me and baby.
Whatever happens, I pray that you will feel the nearness of God all around you and baby.

Can you ask for something for the anxiety? Fight or flight hormones can inhibit labor so being able to relax and sleep might help. Also ask about a balloon/bulb induction. Hugs mama.

Praying for you!

 

And in case you haven't experienced a c-section before, just remember that it's not the end of the world. Really!

 

Sometimes remembering that the worst case scenario isn't all that bad helps me feel less anxious.

Is there a reason you're worried about it being a c-section? Not knowing your history, I'll assume, for now, you've never had one.

Take it from me, it is easier recovery if you have one without going through labor first. Going through labor first just wears you out.

I'm pretty sure with my first, with whom I was induced and in labor first but wound up being a c-section, that I was "in a fog" for about the first 5 or 6

months of her life outside the womb! My son was a planned c-section, and while I was still tired (understandably), I didn't have the permeating fog.

 

I had pre-eclampsia both times. Do yourself and your body a favor and schedule the c-section. It will be one LESS thing to worry about.

Praying! So glad you are in good hands -- blood pressure problems are nothing to mess around with during pregnancy.

I hope your LO has decided to appear, but I can assure you that a c-section might not be too horrible. My sixth was a very emergency c-section, and the recovery has been a lot better than I anticipated.

I had pre-eclampsia both times. Do yourself and your body a favor and schedule the c-section. It will be one LESS thing to worry about.

 

I had a very similar experience. I labored twice before c-sections. I was anemic after both and recovery was long. Still, it was manageable. I scheduled my third c-section. It made a huge difference in how I felt afterward. So much better. I agree--not as much fog. It's still a recovery that takes some time, but don't be afraid to schedule a c section if it's an option. I had a lot of anxiety during pregnancy, too. 

 

I will pray for you right  now!

Prayers for you.

My boys were a labor and c-section. It was tough because of the labor exhaustion and recovery, not the c-section part of the recovery for me. It's really not the worst thing if that is how you get to hold that baby. I hope and pray, though, all is coming together smoothly.

The doc and nurse and doula strongly recommended induction with the bulb and pitocin so that's what I did. My BP has been fine but baby started having decels with contractions enough that we shut off the pitocin. Still no baby.....
