I was admitted to hospital on the 13th for high BP and protein and on the 16th I was induced at 36 weeks + 2. Labour was rough, baby's heart rate kept dropping and my BP started spiking so I was put on magnesium sulfate (horrid stuff!). I delivered 24 hours after induction (VBAC). My baby boy was 4 lbs 6 oz and was considered IUGR. He's doing well with feeding and I'm still recovering from meds and eager to get home. I had HELLP with my 2nd son and preclampsia with my 3rd so we are not having anymore little ones, it's just too much of a medical gamble with my babies and myself.
