  • Labor caused by induction hurts so much more than natural labor. Just relax and ask for medications if you need them.

  • Breathe it out..stay as calm as you can and be honest with your nurses as to how your is not the time for a brave face :) Take what you can get and I wish you the best!

  • It Hurts, lol.
    I was induced with all 3 of mine. just stay come, focused and try to get plenty of sleep you will need your energy.. they should give you small doses of pitocin( which is the inducing medicine) then you will begin to get contractions.

  • I guess I'm thinking induced in terms of them breaking your water :)

  • Don't let them crank it all the way up. I only needed to go to a 3 out of 10 and had good consistent contractions after an hour and was taken off the pitocin after 5 hours. Yet, the nurse kept insisting that it needed to be increased. My baby had trouble getting his heart rate up after contractions at only a 3, so I can't imagine what it would have been like if the Pitocin had gone any higher. Almost every woman I know who was induced and ended up with a Csection had the Pitocin cranked up real high and stressed the baby. I'm not saying that is always the case, we'll nver know if they'd have ended up with a Csec anyway, but it's too much of a coincidence for me to ignore. I insisted that they kept the Pitocin low and the stress on the baby wasn't too bad and he ended up still being born vaginally.

  • I was induced. For me, the only "bad" part was when they actually put the stuff up on my cervix. They had to reach in with no lubricant. Ugh. Because of the picotin, I made arrangements to have an epidural and they went ahead and did it when I asked--before the contractions got too strong. After that, it wasn't too rough. Good luck! You're going to be a mama!

  • My nurse told me whenever I wanted my epidural I could have it and to make sure I don't let the pain get to bad. So hopefully they tell you the same thing. If I would've known I was being induced I would've been scared as well. I ended up with a c-section, everything happened so fast. It'll all be ok! Just make sure you get some rest while you're in the hospital. The extra hands help! How exciting!!!! You'll never forget the first time you get to see your little bundle of joy! Good luck and congrats!!!!
