Re: Possible induction for high BP and really nervous
I don't respond well to epidurals either.
It sounds like you have a good grip on things. As long as the OB eases you into induction it should hopefully go smoothly.
I'm still bitter about my last induced birth where my bag was broken and I was pumped full of pit. No one told me anything, gave me any options or warned me about how stressful that kind of aggressive induction would be. I was checked constantly and as a result ended up with an infection that made pushing SUCK!
My new OBs jaw dropped when she heard how agressive they were about inducing (apparently bag breaking is an endgame?). In her words, keeping an open dialogue about how fast you want to go is key.
