Pre-Eclampsia. My blood pressure was sky rocketing and my platelets and liver were struggling too.
I was lucky in that I was over due by 2 days and I have 6 pounders. The OB was able to just break my waters as I was already dilated enough. I was then started on the synto drip at a very slow rate (about 1/4 the strength of standard drip induction) and then it just kept getting increased till my body took over the process. Drip was started around 10am. In full labour around 12. Bub born at 4. A great very in control process. I also had the synto for my first VBAC. Some OB's won't touch it though, but from my experiences it can be done if it's not rushed.
