Never been induced. I hear it can be somewhat more painful. Hope it all goes well!

Heard that too from my friends who had this experience. She said the only thing you can do is not to resist the pain and try to relax by breathing deeply and slowly. Don't know if it really helps, but it's surely worth trying. :)

Get an epidural. Other than that nothing. I was induced with my second and it was no different from my labor and delivery with my first.

Sex, if you can stand it. A dose of castor oil can help also, as can nipple stimulation.
