I'm not sure if you will read this but I also had a uterine rupture with out any previous cs or surgery..so I'm in the text book right along with you...but my experience was horrible...I went in on a Monday night to be induced...everything seemed fine...my water broke around 8 am on Tuesday morning then by 1130 I felt the urge to push but the nurse made me hold him in until the Dr arrived...the Dr didn't get there until 12...when I went to push I didn't feel any pressure and I told her it couldn't feel the urge any more...I continued to try to push when I thought I should..my son was crowning but the nurse said looks like he's going back in and the Dr laughed and said yes it does...I still continued to push and my chest and arm started hurting..my son crowned and went back in again and the nurse and Dr said I've never seen that before...the Dr left me in the room with the nurse around 1230...I started hurting more and throwing up...I couldn't do it any more so my husband went to find the Dr around 1250 and the Dr came back in and said let's watch you push some more...I couldn't do it I was hurting and we told her we needed a cs... they took me back to the OR and was ready by 110...my son was born stillborn at 139pm...the Dr said my uterus exploded..I had a small straight cut near my cervix and a jagged cut the left side of my uterus...she fixed my uterus no need for a blood transfusion or hysterectomy...I don't know why my uterus ruptured I don't have any answers...the Dr just said its rare and it didn't even cross her mind that this would happen...I had a healthy 9lb 10oz boy and I never got to hear him cry...if you have any insight on why this happened to an unscarred uterus I'd love to know...View Thread
