  • Well I was induced at 8am they gave a pill (pitocin) and I got all comfy in my room and waited . NOTHING happened for me till about 1-2pm when I started getting a few contractions. They broke my water around 9pm and I didn't end up pushing till midnight that night. I pushed for 2 hours and 17 minutes. It was easy for me had NO problems . Good luck !

  • I was induced with my first. This is how it went. They had me come in at 6am, but did not get me into my room and give me pitocin until 830am. They started the peticion, I didn't feel anything. My doctor came in around 10am, checked me out I was dilated 3cm, then he turned up my pitocin. I felt some really intense contractions about a half an hour later. I asked for my epidural and by 12ish I was numb and the doctor broke my water. I was 10cm by 1pm and delivered my daughter a little after 130pm. It was all very easy for me. Good Luck and congrats.
