I was due on the 6th and they are going to induce on the 16th. I'm more nervous about that then I was with my first because I don't know what to expect. My doctor and I haven't talked about the details yet. I just want to hear about other peoples experiences so I know if there are any questions I should ask her when she and I do talk about it.
ajquinn- I get your frustration... It's hard making this decision, hormonal, and then having people throw loose facts at you. I was induced with my first. My cervix was ready but I wasn't dilated at all... Even after the pitocin I had no change for HOURS. Finally I took the epi and went from 2 to 8 in 40 minutes. The contractions were VERY hard and I think I got caught up in fear tension of it all so that slowed me considerably. My second I was dilated but not ready cervix wise... I went 5 days late with him :) I say this because my doc then told me he would not induce because of the situation not being right and would most likely result in csection. I really appreciated him being so honest because I had a friend recently who was scared into inducing and ended up with surgery, kwim? Well this is my third and I am actually set to be induced the same day you are :)

I was induced at 36 weeks and it was a pretty easy labor. I had a few hours of hard labor and only pushed through about 2 contractions before he came. I think your attitude has alot to do with it. If you expect your induced labor to be long and hard it will.
