So my favorite cousin in law is in the hospital having her second baby. She was a week over due and they induced her this morning at 7:15. She’s still in labor!!!! I’ve never been induced so I can’t offer her advice (she texted me asking why it’s taking so long lol)

If you were induced, how long did your labor take? I feel so bad for her, she’s just miserable but she had an epidural and she’s comfortable for now.


Update: thanks for sharing your stories! The little squish finally came! Annalise Grace was born at 9:36 pm and is a healthy 7 pounds 6 ounce! As soon as her husband sent me the picture at 10 last night I cried! I’m so happy for them and she’s perfect! Mom is great, she just said she’ll never be induced again lol!

I was induced with my first one. I was in labor for 18 hours.  It was slow for a while.

5 hours. I was induced with my third but was already 5cm dilated when I went in for induction (baby was in bad position and I had actually been in on again off again labor for two weeks at that point). My second was my only all natural delivery. I was in labor for a whopping 30 minutes. Didn't even have an IV when she arrived.

8 hours from the time the doctor broke my water till my baby was born. No pitocin, no epidural. But, I was 6cm to start with.

I was induced for my first after my water breaking on its own. I was a finger tip dilated and contractions were far and few in between lol. 15 hours later I had my son.

I was induced on a Monday morning and didn't have my baby until Tuesday afternoon!
