I was induced, so I guess that's "other".

Re: How did your labor start?

I was induced after going 2 weeks over and dd getting too big. I was put on medicine to start contractions and Dr. came in 1 hour later and broke my water. 10 hours later and after 3 hours of pushing, I had to have a c-section. DD just did not want to come out!

Re: How did your labor start?

I am not really sure when my labour started. My mucous plug starting coming out on the Saturday. I was having Braxtons her and there. Saw my OBGYN on Tuesday. He said they were just Braxton, I was 2 days shy of 34 weeks. Wednesday night I was not able to sleep. I could not time anything and it just seamed like constant pain, not too bad though. By 7am in Thursday morning, I called the hospital. They said to come it to check it out. I got there at 7:30, 8:00 my water broke and my DD was born at 9am. To this day I would not be able to tell you what part was labour.

Re: How did your labor start?

With my DD, born 9*14*07 I was 4 cm, I was alone, my husband was in Korea, so I talked the dr. into being admitted to L&D and he broke my water. I started having contractions about 45 minutes later. 45 minutes later she was born, I am so happy that he admitted me. My dr. told me after I had my DD that he just imagined me driving to the hospital with her head between my legs, LOL! Thank God for good dr.'s and wild imaginations!!

Re: How did your labor start?

Well my doc wanted me to choose if I wanted to come in early and get induced because they predicted a very big head. So I chose to go in on a monday evening at 7pm, to get cervidal put in for the evening. On tuesday morning she checked me and I was 1 cm. She started the pitocin that morning and I was on it all day really didn't feel anything, just a little tightness in the belly.. Around 4 they came in and took me off of the induction because nothing was happening. My doc came in around 6pm and checked me and I was still a 1. She gave me and my dh an option to stay and try the cervidal one more time for the evening and see if anything has progressed. And if I was a 2 or more I would stay and she would break my water. Go home and she would see us in next monday. Well since we were already there we choose option one to stay. Well I was in so much pain all night and my ds's heart rate was fluxuating so much, my doc came in Wednesday morning around 7:55 checked me I was a loose 1 now but she was looking at his heart rate and she had no idea why it was doing what it was doing.. So she decided to do an emergency C-section. And at 8:34 am he was born... So I really didn't have any labor pains or contractions or anything really...

I was induced. The pitocin wasn't really doing much so they broke my water and thats what started my active labor.
