    Default Induction due to pre eclampsia

    HI ladies, looking to hear your stories of induction with pre eclampsia?
    I've been told by a lot that ladies with pe seem to labour a lot quicker than normal ladies who are induced.

    I was induced with PE with DS1. Labour was 8 hours (over two hours pushing) had peth and gas, ended up having an episiotomy.

    My labour with DS2 was very short - 20 mins pushing I'd say less than two hours labour. I was overdue - no PE had him without any drugs at all.

    Not sure if that's what you were after?? I can't remember DS1s birth too well as I was very affected by the drugs.

    I didn't have PE but was induced. Labour was 2.5 hours including 30 minutes of pushing. Wouldn't want it to be much quicker than that!

    Good luck, I think I also read that you are in hospital on bed rest? If that's the case I hope the time goes quickly for you.

    My nephrology and hypertension specialist was umming and ahhing about whether to even let me be induced with PE.
    (It was actually a non-issue as lead twin was breach at the time - and turned to transverse in last 12 hours before c-section.)

    I am confused about this. I thought that it was dangerous to labour with PE due to the effect of labour on already high blood pressure. I had a CS due to PE, at 33 weeks. At that stage they have to do a CS because the cervix just isn't ready for birth, apparently.
