I never really looked into failed inductions until I had it myself.
Tell me about your failed induction. I'm assuming no one knew they were going to have one until they did. (Unless you had one before and have a higher risk of having another one.)
My twin pregnancy ended up being a failed induction. My PPROM or water broke (minor leak) at 28 weeks. I was on hospital bed rest until I went into labor. Luckily, I managed to keep the babies in until 6 weeks later when I was scheduled to be induced at 34 weeks. At the time of the induction, I was 4cm dilated and 100% effaced. I felt no pain. A few hours later, at 5 cm, I got the epidural because I wanted to make sure I was awake if I had a c-section. About 12 hours later, with lots of pitocin, I only got to 6 cm. It was determined that I wouldn't dilate any more. They think my uterus might have been already tired from my water breaking weeks before (maybe I had been contracting for the past 6 weeks). It was also mentioned that maybe I had an undetectable infection. I could have waited it out but I was tired and there was a small spike in temperature so we proceeded with a c-section.
Oh, at the beginning of the induction, both babies were head down and both OBs on call that weekend were ok with doing a breach extraction. So I think I had a good chance of a vaginal delivery for one or both. I was a tiny bit sad that I couldn't do a vaginal birth but looking back, I have no regrets. I was ready and prepared for anything to happen in my twin pregnancy.
Tell me about your failed induction.
