39th week and labour augmentation

Heyyo heyyo.

I went for my antenatal visit @ 39weeks yesterday and BISHOP score was done ( BISHOP score is the method of how your gynaecologist predicting your labour progress especially in your late pregnancy). Oh, guess what. My gynaeologist smiled and said, "OPTIONALLY, you can admit tonight and deliver you babygirl by tomorrow afternoon..if you want..".Terkejut beruk mokcik.
My BISHOP score was very good..cervix softened and the fetal station (kedudukan baby) was so low already, Almost all of her head is already in my pelvis area! But there's no cervical dilatation yet :(

Make it short, everything is ready. I just need the dilatation and contraction. There you go, BISHOP SCORE.

I was consulted by my gynae regarding labour augmentation (some said it's as same as labour induction) but yeah i think there's a different, Somehow.Usually induction will be done @38th week of pregnancy if there's any indication that will cause mother and baby in danger (if they wait for the due date for the labour to happen). Hypertension, Diabetes, postdate, etc. But nowadays, maybe people choose to augment or induce the labour just to..?get the best date..?planning for the holidays? pftt..

The day when a mother admit to the hospital, the gynae will insert the cervical tablet (Prostin which contains the prostaglandin) that will soften the cervix and for dilatation to happen. Next thing, if the contraction doesnt happen or weak, they will put in the IV Pitocin to initiate or increase the contraction. And tarra, Baby's out. OR, you will end up with the Caesarian Section. Because of non-progressive labour induction. Yeah things happen. Jika DIA kata JADILAH, siapa kita untuk menghalangnya. Kan? :)

So, back to reality. Pikir punya pikir and after asking for the experts opinions, we think..there's no need to rush. Why..?
1) no indication, i'm well so far. alhamdulillah..
2) i have no contraction at all
3) we need to talk to baby first about this..does she ready to come out? :)))))
4) aku yang tak prepare mental lagi. Petang ni decide nk beranak, esok dah beranak. fuih.

Yeah, it's different feeling if the contractions come on its own. Not planned. Betul tak?
And also true, if im scared that the augmentation process does'nt go well and end up with c-sect...actually it can happen anyway if your contraction comes naturally and your natural labour doesnt progress well. You ended up in the OT as well. Same je. Semuanya terserah pada Allah. Plan lah macam mane terbali dunie pon.

So here i am. Blogging. Waiting for the contraction to come. Waiting for husband to come home and eat dinner togetha!
Cuti sudah bermula! Heyyo heyyo! pariappa pariappa.
Hopefully i can update my labour progress in my next entry. Amin amin!
