I was induced with my first and 3rd child. My first was at 41 weeks and 1 day. My third was at 39 weeks and 5 days. It is HORRIBLY PAINFUL. At least for me it was.

 I was induced with my oldest at about 42 weeks.  The experience was very good and so I went in to my other 4 pregnancies knowing that I wanted to be induced a little earlier.  So, I was induced with all 4 of them about this time.  It all went very well and fairly easily for me.  Good Luck and try to just enjoy the time.

That's not necessarily true. I was walking around at 4cm with my first and had no contractions or any signs of labor.

There's a lot of things that could make your experience different than others. There's different was of inducing labor. There's a bulb that can help you dilate more to jump start labor, there's little inserts and gels they can put on your cervix to do the same as the bulb, they can try to just break your water and see if it works, and there's IV pitocin.

With my first I went information my induction and was already 4cm. They broke my water and began the pitocin. Once I started feeling painful contractions I asked for something to help with the pain(I was about 6 hours in by then). They have me a medicine in my IV to relax me and I fell asleep really quickly, but woke up 3 hours later. I sat around for as long as I could and asked for an epi when it was more than I wanted to handle. My doc checked my cervix and I was 7cm and 50% effaced, so they have the go ahead. It took a few painful attempts to get it in, but once it was in I had no pain and could still feel a little bit. 5 hours later my little man arrived.

With my second I didn't get the IV pain meds, and they waited until I was 7cm to break my water. It was pretty quickly after that that my son was born(an hour and 44 minutes), but that's also wen I started feeling pain and when I really wanted an epi. My pitocin had been up to the legal limit for several hours so my contractions were very very strong, and I was in a lot of pain with no way to cope since I was unable to take birthing classes and couldn't get an epi in time.

Hope all goes well!!! I am not a fan of induction, but in your case, it sounds like it makes sense.

I don't trust inductions. But yeah being at 4 doesn't mean anything I was walking around at 5 cm for a month with my last baby

Depends on the route and how urgent your health complication is (how fast the force).

Do you know the induction routes?

If you have a poor Bishop's Score will you wait until it's more favorable?
