How long were you in labor after induced?

Going in on Wed to be induced for the second time. With my first, I was dilated a lot more when I was induced and had her within a couple hours after my water being broken. I only had real pain for about 30 min or less.

I know that every pregnancy is different and I'm not nervous at all because it's going to happen either way LOL I just want to get it over with.

So, after you were induced how long was it until you actually had your baby?

  • My cousin was induced and ended up being in labor for 27 hours and then they finally did a c-section. :/

  • My last 2 were induced and I had them within a couple of hours...I've heard of these horror stories about being induced and still being in labor for 24 hours or whatever but that never happened with me..all of mine seemed to come pretty fast though...I wasn't induced with my first daughter but by the time I got to the hospital I was already dialated to a 6 and had her a few hours later...they say the more you have the faster they come...I don't know if it's true for everyone but it was for me...

  • OMG! I am not leaving that hospital once I'm there! I will sit in the waiting room if I have to! The only thing that makes me nervous is that the last one I was at 3cm and this one I've been at barely 1cm for over 2 wks now and even with all sorts of pain, nothing's changing with my body. She's just huge!
