i'm pregnant with my second child. with my first child i had to be induced. i went 8 days passed my due date. i was wondering if any of you went into labor on your own with your second child? i'm so anxious. i wanna experience the whole rush of my water breaking and all that "fun" stuff lol. also i heard that contractions hurt more when being induced than if i was to go into labor on my own. is that true?

Each woman is different but I had my first 6 without being induced and I Never had the "rush of water breaking"....the nurse always had to break the sac. My last child (#7) I was induced and yes it hurts and the contractions seemed to be stronger than when I normally went into labor but then again it was over 6 years between my 6th and 7th child

I went into labor on my due date with my second. However, lol I didnt have any of the "fun" either. They had to break my water. When I was induced with my first, I got the epidural, so I didnt really feel my contractions..it took a lot longer though. With my second, I didn't have any pain meds...and my labor was all in my back. I was coming up off the bed in pain.

I wasn't induced with my first and was with my second. Second's contractions hurt worse but my labor was 12 hours shorter.

ETA- My water broke with my second on it's own but it was just like heavy discharge. I didn't have the pop and rush of water.

 With my 2nd DD, I went into labor on my own. Right after a midnight run of Taco Bell. I thought it was just an upset stomach from the burritos, lol. But my water never broke until I was already in the hospital. Contractions hurt like hell, induced or not. I was only induced with my 3rd, and it still was painful just like the 2 before her.

i went 8 days over with both my daughters. the first was induced the second i went into labor on my own. my first daughter i had an epidural but before that YES the contractions were much much worse. with my second i went natural and the contracts were LITERALLY!!! I KID YYOU NOT!!! like mild mild...i could ignore them cramps!!! until 9 1/2 cm when they turned into more like moderate cramps!!! if you can avoid being induced i would!! and also keep in mind that you arent even OVERDUE until 42 weeks!! so dont push it if you dont really realyl have to

It means is sucks really bad LOL.  My stomach didn't get hard with contractions instead it felt like my spine was being crushed.
