    Placenta break down as you mentioned, but same as what bellalika said above - especially swallowing muchonium which can be fatal to the baby?

    yup. Bub is 8 months old now

    For the record, i had a stretch n sweep at 41+4, 4 hours later my waters broke at home.

    I had no contractions though, so was put on the drip. Contractions became unbearable and after 10 hours I asked for an epidural.

    Contractions stopped. Went in for a ceasar. Caesar went great.

    Bub was 11.1lbs or 5.04 kg!! covered in thick vernix, placenta was extremely healthy.
    She had pooed the meconium in utero and had some minor breathing difficulties and had to stay in nursery for 5 days as a result.

    All fine now, she is a superstar baby and is almost walking.
