I'm 38 wks pregnant and I've been put on bedrest for the rest of my pregnancy because of high BP, and excessive water weight/swelling (pregnancy-induced hypertension and edema). I think they are going to talk to me about getting induced if nothing improves by Monday (my next appt).
I have been planning all along to go into labor naturally and no drugs etc etc etc.
But if I have to get induced, I want to know how much more does it hurt than going into labor naturally?

I was induced because of preeclampsia at 36 weeks. They started me on pictocin at 8 am and broke my water at 11. I had my son before 6pm after a relatively easy labor. I know my experience isn't typical for being induced, but it was a really easy delivery. I pushed through 2 or 3 contractions and there he was!
Of course waiting for it to happen naturally is what you want, but sometimes that's just not a good idea. I think alot of how your labor goes is the attitude you have going into to. Don't worry about it, you're going to have a baby soon either way!
